We have an automatic pop-up on our website that informs users of this and they have the option to accept or not. This is a WordPress site and the cookie pop-up and management is provided by WordPress. Wordpress is to our knowledge, professional and aligned with legal data protection.

Your Acceptance of These Terms: By using the website and related services, you accept the policies and restrictions set forth in this Privacy Policy and Terms and Conditions. If you do not agree to this policy, please do not use the website/our services. This Privacy Policy and Terms and Conditions may be revised from time to time by updating this posting.

You should therefore periodically visit this page to review the current Privacy Policy and Terms and Conditions to which you are bound. Sophie Thomas can not and does not make any guarantees about anyone’s ability to get results from her suggestions, advice or any other offering via this site, other websites, in real life or via any other medium.

By transmitting any such information to us in any way, you accept that you do so at your own risk.

Complimentary Clarity Call
We may offer a complimentary call for those who were genuinely interested in, and may be the right fit for our services. Users may apply for a call but a call is not guaranteed, especially if they do not meet the criteria (for example, their challenge must be aligned with the solutions we aim to provide and they are financially secure enough to invest in the solutions offered. Alternative resources or solutions may be offered to those who do not align with the main programme). We may also reach out via email or phone (usually a text or WhatsApp message) for example to confirm a call or give next steps.

We reserve the right to cancel bookings that appear to be scams, from those who do not appear to be the right fit for the programme, and by those who are not financially aligned as this is a premium service (in which case we may offer free/more affordable resources instead as an act of care). It is made clear on the website that this is for financially secure people/those willing and able to invest for this premium service as unfortunately we can’t help everyone.

The nature of the clarity call (AKA breakthrough call/enrolment call) is to get to the heart of what is going on for the potential client. By booking and participating in the call, the potential client understands and agrees to explore their challenges and opportunities. This is done to make our best assessment that the potential client may be the right for our services and with the intention to best serve the client’s best interests. The potential client is responsible for how much information they share. The call is confidential however exemptions as listed above apply, for example if legal protection is required.

Email List
We have an email mailing list which is held on MailChimp. There have been/are multiple ways that people can join the mailing list. In any circumstance we reasonably assume that the audience members have consented to give their data and have given their data of their own accord. We never add people to our mailing list – it is only on an opt-in basis. Audience members can unsubscribe at any time using the unsubscribe option at the bottom of emails or by reaching out to us.
