Free Spirit Stitches recognizes that anything Client shares is regarded as confidential, whether it is business or personal information. Client’s identity and ongoing teaching relationship will be kept strictly confidential. Free Spirit Stitches will only release confidential information with the Client’s written permission or if required by court order and will never disclose the Client’s name as a reference without the Client’s prior written consent.
Some sessions may be conducted in a group format. By signing this agreement, the Client commits to maintaining the confidentiality of all information communicated to Client by other teaching clients and by Free Spirit Stitches. While both parties understand that progress is often enhanced when clients are allowed to discuss their teaching relationship with trusted colleagues and friends, the Client must in no way share information that leads to the identification of others in the group. If the Client is ever in doubt regarding what to reveal and what not to reveal, the Coach asks that he or she err on the side of protecting the privacy of others, thereby preserving a vital and nonnegotiable element of such group interaction.
The Client should be aware that there are certain, limited situations where confidentiality cannot and will not be maintained: (1) the physical or sexual abuse of a child will be reported to the appropriate authorities; (2) elder abuse will be reported to the appropriate authorities; (3) if it appears that Client is at imminent risk to him or herself or someone else or if Client makes threats of imminent violence against another person, Free Spirit Stitches will take appropriate action. These situations rarely occur, and Free Spirit Stitches will make every effort to discuss the breach of confidentiality with you before taking action.
The Client understands that it is impossible to fully protect the confidentiality of information that is transmitted electronically or in telephone calls. This is particularly true of e-mail and information stored on computers that are connected to the internet which do not utilize encryption and/or other forms of security protection. Free Spirit Stitches will do everything possible to protect against any unwanted intrusions, and recommends that the Client use a personally-owned computer to best maintain privacy.
