Hello, it’s David Poole here…

This is a little holding page, it’s somewhat boring but it gives you the legal stuff about my business, so yes, it’s quite important.

My trading name is David Poole and Associates
And all products and services I sell, are under this name.
So if you have brought a branded product from me, or coaching, the trading name remains as David Poole and Associates. 

If you click on one of my “buy now” buttons, or you receive an invoice from me, the name is always David Poole and Associates, this is because I don’t want to go setting up lots of micro-companies. That’s regardless of the payment terminal. I’m currently using Stripe and Paypal.

You have my official business address at the top right of this page,
And here are my business numbers

Description of Coaching:
Coaching is a partnership (defined as an alliance, not a legal business partnership) between the Coach and the Client in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires the client to maximize personal and professional potential. It is designed to facilitate the creation/development of personal, professional or business goals and to develop and carry out a strategy/plan for achieving those goals. 

1) Coach-Client Relationship

A. David Poole and Associates agrees to maintain the ethics and standards of behavior established by the International Coach Federation as of January 2020

B. Client is solely responsible for creating and implementing his/her own physical, mental and emotional well-being, decisions, choices, actions and results arising out of or resulting from the coaching relationship and his/her coaching calls and interactions with the Coach. As such, the Client agrees that the Coach is not and will not be liable or responsible for any actions or inaction, or for any direct or indirect result of any services provided by the Coach.


C. Client further acknowledges that he/she may terminate or discontinue the coaching relationship at any time.

D. Client acknowledges that coaching is a comprehensive process that may involve different areas of his or her life, including work, finances, health, relationships, education, recreation and business. The Client agrees that deciding how to handle these issues, incorporate coaching principles into those areas and implementing choices is exclusively the Client’s responsibility.

E. The Client understands that in order to enhance the coaching relationship, the Client agrees to communicate honestly, be open to feedback and assistance and to create the time and energy to participate fully in the program.

4) Procedure
The time of the coaching meetings and/or location will be determined by Coach and Client based on a mutually agreed-upon time. The Client will initiate all scheduled calls and will call the Coach via Facebook Messenger or Whatsapp. If the client wished to use other video streaming services that require a link, the client must provide the link 5 minutes prior to the meeting through pre-established channels, such as Messenger.
If the Coach will be at any other number for a scheduled call, Client will be notified prior to the scheduled appointment time. 

5) Confidentiality
This coaching relationship, as well as all information (documented or verbal) that the Client shares with the Coach as part of this relationship, is bound by the principles of confidentiality set forth in the ICF Code of Ethics. However, please be aware that the Coach-Client relationship is not considered a legally confidential relationship (like the medical and legal professions) and thus communications are not subject to the protection of any legally recognized privilege. The Coach agrees not to disclose any information pertaining to the Client without the Client’s written consent. The Coach will not disclose the Client’s name as a reference without the Client’s consent. 

Confidential Information does not include information that:

(b) is generally known to the public or in the Client’s industry;
(c) is obtained by the Coach from a third party, without breach of any obligation to the Client;
(d) is independently developed by the Coach without use of or reference to the Client’s confidential information; or
(e) the Coach is required by statute, lawfully issued subpoena, or by court order to disclose;
(f) is disclosed to the Coach and as a result of such disclosure the Coach reasonably believes there to be an imminent or likely risk of danger or harm to the Client or others; and
(g) involves illegal activity. The Client also acknowledges his or her continuing obligation to raise any confidentiality questions or concerns with the Coach in a timely manner. 

7) Cancellation Policy 

Client agrees that it is the Client’s responsibility to notify the Coach 24 (twenty four) hours in advance of the scheduled calls/meetings. Coach reserves the right to bill Client for a missed meeting. Coach will attempt in good faith to reschedule the missed meeting.

In no event shall the Coach be liable to the Client for any indirect, consequential or special damages. Notwithstanding any damages that the Client may incur, the Coach’s entire liability under this Agreement, and the Client’s exclusive remedy, shall be limited to the amount actually paid by the Client to the Coach under this Agreement for all coaching services rendered through and including the termination date.

11) Entire Agreement
This document reflects the entire agreement between the Coach and the Client, and reflects a complete understanding of the parties with respect to the subject matter.

If any provision of this Agreement shall be held to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, the remaining provisions shall continue to be valid and enforceable.
