- INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS
We share your personal data within our group of companies which involves transferring your data outside the European Economic Area (EEA).
Countries outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) do not always offer the same levels of protection to your personal data, so European law has prohibited transfers of personal data outside of the EEA unless the transfer meets certain criteria.
Many of our third parties service providers are based outside the European Economic Area (EEA) so their processing of your personal data will involve a transfer of data outside the EEA.
Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we do our best to ensure a similar degree of security of data by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
- We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission; or
- Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts or codes of conduct or certification mechanisms approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe; or
- Where we use providers based in the United States, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the EU-US Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between the Europe and the US.
If none of the above safeguards is available, we may request your explicit consent to the specific transfer. You will have the right to withdraw this consent at any time.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data out of the EEA.
- DATA SECURITY
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed.

- DATA RETENTION
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS
General Payment Terms
By purchasing a Psycademy program you authorize Psycademy to charge your credit card as payment for your membership in the program. You agree that you are responsible for full payment of fees for the entire course of the program, regardless of whether you participate, actually attend or complete the program, and regardless of whether you have selected a lump sum or monthly payment plan.
You agree that, if for any reason, you choose to remove or cancel yourself out of the program after the guarantee period has closed and prior to the end date of your payment commitment period you are obligated to pay, or continue paying, any outstanding balance(s) for the entire period.
Generally speaking, after the expiration of any “cooling off” or guarantee period, cancellations are not permitted for Psycademy workshops and training courses or group coaching programs. In the event that you decide to withdraw following attendance at one or more of the workshops then no refund is due.
If you default on regular payments via your payment plan the full amount is due to be paid within 10 days.
Unless otherwise stated our ‘cooling off’ period is 14 days upon receipt of your initial payment or agreement (verbal or written) to join the program.
Once all / any cooling off or trial periods are over, the full amount is due according to the payment plan or full payment. In other words you will continue to make all payments owing in a timely manner. No exceptions to this are made.
To further clarify, no refunds will be issued beyond the deadline stated in the program guarantee and all scheduled payments must be made on a timely basis whether you complete the program or not.
You may be asked to sign this contract to confirm your payment plan and your agreement to these terms. Participating in the program is taken as your agreement to these terms even in the absence of a signed contract. Participation is considered to be, but not limited to, any of the following: online learning forum access, downloading of course materials, receipt of 1-1 coaching, attendance of online coaching calls or training sessions, webinars or attendance of a live workshop or any other form of participation or access to course materials or coaching.
In order to receive your certification you must attend all days of the live training or workshop, and complete and pass any test papers or case studies associated with your program. Psycademy reserves the right to make changes to the certification process.
Should you be unable to attend any of the live training days for any reason it may be possible to transfer to a future workshop. Transfers to future workshops are at the sole discretion of Psycademy and may incur a charge of up to 100% of the cost of the training. You must inform Psycademy in writing as early as possible if you are unable to attend any of the scheduled workshop time.
Psycademy accepts payment by debit/credit card, cash, bank transfer, and cheques. Payments made on receipt of an invoice are due on the date stated on the invoice.

Psycademy may require that, where payment is being made via an instalment payment plan, a deposit is required – usually 25% of the total fee due (excluding any administration fee charged by Psycademy). Payments to Psycademy may continue after you have completed your training or coaching program, until such time as Psycademy has received the full amount due for the program plus any applicable administration fee.
