Site Content

You may access, download and print materials on this website for your personal and non-commercial use. You may not modify, copy, distribute, transmit, display, perform, reproduce, publish, license, create derivative works from, transfer, or sell any information, software, products or services obtained from this website without first obtaining written consent from UK ICF. Furthermore, you may not use the materials found on this website on any other websites or in a networked environment without first obtaining written consent from the UK ICF.

Spam Policy

All email and electronic communications with members should adhere to the following principles:

♦  You should have a prior relationship with the person receiving your email. (Someone giving you their business card is acceptable in this regard–it implies permission to get in contact. Similarly if someone has sent you an email.)

♦  A valid “from” and “reply to” address must be included with each message.

♦  If you have a subscription list, you should send a confirmation email that the person wishes to be on the list.

♦  There should always be a quick way to unsubscribe from any mail list.

♦  Any request to cease mailing from an individual or organization should be quickly honoured.

A complaint involving a breach of this policy may be considered a violation of the ICF Code of Ethics, and therefore referred to the Independent Review Board for their consideration. Should they determine that a breach has occurred, the Independent Review Board will determine what remedy (s) may be required. Sanctions may also be imposed such as suspending or terminating the coach’s membership and/or credential with the ICF.
