Privacy Policy


(This page was last updated on 24 May 2018.)

Dear (future) customer,

I am aware that you have placed your trust in me. For this reason, I consider it my responsibility to protect your privacy. This page is intended to inform you concerning the ways in which my website collects data, why I collect data, and how I use this data to improve your user experience. In this way, you will understand exactly how I operate.

This privacy policy applies to the services offered by my company, Adem en Stem. I am not responsible for the privacy policy of other sites and/or sources. By making use of my website, you automatically accept this privacy policy.

Adem en Stem respects the privacy of all its site’s users and ensures that the information provided is handled confidentially.


My use of collected data:

Your personal details (your name, address, place of residence and email) are used by my administration provider, Moneybird, to send you invoices after having provided you with a service. I am obliged by the Dutch Tax Authority (Belastingdienst) to save these details for a period of seven years.

Personal information provided (via an intake form or during a conversation) concerning your life may be used to create a dossier. I will explicitly inform you of this if this is the case.

I will destroy the dossier two years after our last sessions. I will remove the information provided via the intake form from my computer after two years (or earlier, upon your request).

You have the right to specify during our session(s) that you would like me to immediately remove your dossier after our last session. Alternatively, you can specify that you would prefer me not to save your information in a dossier at all. Consequently, I will not save your information.

If I decide to send a newsletter via email in future, I will first ask your permission. I will add the option of unsubscribing from the newsletter in the newsletter itself, while also adding the option of no longer receiving any emails from me at all.

I do my utmost to protect my personal computer, laptop, iPad, optional back-up systems, and mobile phone from being accessed by unauthorised people. I have purchased all the necessary security measures, such as a virus scanner and a firewall, for this purpose.

By agreeing to a session with me or participating in a breath- and/or voicework workshop or training, you automatically agree with this privacy policy.
