Data Privacy Practices

As you may be aware, the European’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into effect on May 25, 2018. Under EU law, an EU resident has the right to know the details and purpose of personal data – also known as personal information – is processed (collected, used, stored) by any organisation.

Some of the services offered on our website require the processing of your personal data.

  1. Membership application
  2. Membership application and renewal payment (involve third party website such as Paypal)
  3. Pro bono coaching volunteer application
  4. Conference related sales 

Your personal data and our website

APAC collects your personal information only to the extent necessary to fulfill a precise purpose related to our tasks as an institution (as laid in the mission of our constitution 3.1).

We will generally contact you only via the email you have provided to us and will contact you by phone only if your email contact does not work or in urgent cases.

We do not reuse the information for another purpose that is different to the one stated;

We put in place measures to guarantee that your data are kept up-to-date and processed securely;

Under certain conditions outlined in law, we may disclose your information to third parties, (such as law enforcement authorities) if it is necessary and proportionate for lawful, specific purposes;

We will never divulge your personal data for direct marketing purposes;

You have the right to access your personal information, to have it corrected and the right to recourse; at any time if you believe your data protection rights have been breached;

We do not keep your personal information for longer than necessary for the purposes for which we collected it;

However, we may keep your information for a longer period for historical, statistical or scientific purposes with the appropriate safeguards in place. 

Social Media

We use social media to present our work through widely used and contemporary channels including YouTube page, Facebook page and LinkedIn. Cookies are not set by our display of social media buttons to connect to those services when our website pages are loaded on your computer (or other devices) or from components from those services embedded in our web pages.

Each social media channel has their own policy on the way they process your personal data when you access their sites. For example, if you choose to watch one of our videos on YouTube, you will be asked for explicit consent to accept YouTube cookies; if you look at our Facebook Page activity, you will be asked for explicit consent to accept Facebook cookies; the same applies for LinkedIn. If you have any concerns or questions about their use of your personal data, you should read their privacy policies carefully before using them.

Thank you for being part of the APAC Coaches community and for trusting us to manage your personal information with transparency, honesty and care. If you have any questions about these changes and their impact on you, please contact us at
