The information we collect will vary depending on the service you request but could include name, address, phone number, email address, gender, date of birth, reasons for coming to mediation, financial history, relationship and marriage background, names and ages of children. We may also ask for additional information depending on the nature of the service to be provided.

This information will be kept securely on file for up to 3 years in the event that you return to mediation.

- Lawful Basis for Processing
TNM have legitimate grounds for collecting and using your personal data, namely we need to have such information for the purposes of a) inviting people to mediations and b) conducting the mediations that individual clients ask us to provide. The “General Data Protection Regulation” (GDPR) is the primary piece of legislation defining your rights over our processing of your personal information. The GDPR requires us to declare which of six “lawful reasons” we are relying on when we are processing your personal data. Before the Agreement to Mediate is signed, we operate on the basis of “legitimate interest”. In order to facilitate the mediation process, we will process your data in a targeted and proportionate way. Once the Agreement to Mediate is signed, we operate on the basis of “contract”.
To prevent unauthorised access, maintain data accuracy and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical and electronic procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect from you.
