Privacy in Coaching

Any work samples that Client shares with the Coach in the course of the “How to Write Something” coaching process remain fully the intellectual property of Client and will be viewed by Coach as materials to which Client holds the authorial copyright, meaning Coach fully agrees that temporary access to Client’s text or ideas does not imply a license for Coach to share the work (in part or in whole) in any context or in any medium.

Likewise, any digital objects or artifacts which Coach shares with Client (exercise prompts, worksheets, project templates, original recordings such as videos or courses, and other original digital artifacts and products) remain the intellectual property of the Coach.

Client’s invitation to use these digital products for personal educational gain within the coaching process does not include the right to share or distribute the Coach’s digital products, or any fraction thereof, in a manner which would violate Coach’s authorial copyright. Client is prohibited from distributing the Coach’s digital products to general or specific outside parties but remains welcome to publicly describe (verbally or in writing) personal experiences of working with these objects for general educational purposes, as permitted by fair use laws.

It is Client’s choice whether or not to allow recording of online coaching sessions. If recordings are made, Client will receive an invitation via email to download the video file for personal archival use. Before recording begins, both parties must verbally agree that the recording will be for internal archival use only on both sides and that the video content co-created therein will not be shared (in part or in full) with outside parties besides Coach and Client.

Any disputes will be resolved according to laws which govern the geographic region where the Coach primarily resides and operates from, which is California in the United States of America.
