The Accredited User is solely responsible for all use of their password and log-in details and for the actions of any person that obtains their password or log-in details. The Accredited User should notify EEK & SENSE immediately by email if there is any reason to believe that their password or log-in details are likely to be used in an unauthorised manner. In such a case, EEK & SENSE will, within a reasonable time of being notified, cancel the relevant password or log-in details and send the Accredited User by email either new log-in details or a temporary password to allow the Accredited User to login and create a new password.
4) Conditions and Restrictions on Use

It is recommended that debriefs occur no later than two weeks after the completion date, and sooner if the Personal Wellbeing Report indicates significant wellbeing concerns. In the event that a Respondent refuses the offer of a debrief but requests a copy of their Personal Wellbeing Report, this must be provided securely with a recommendation of following up with another person to discuss their results. The Accredited Coach must respect the Respondent’s wishes, Data Protection requirements to make all data available to Data Subjects on request, and do everything possible to extend a duty of care towards all persons.

Further detail on the Data Protection responsibilities of the Accredited Coach are given in Appendix 3.

EEK & SENSE will provide a list of suggested professions that should be included in this Referral Strategy in the accreditation process and this can also be accessed on the MyGLWS website.
h) The Accredited User must ensure they comply with all Statutes and all Professional Codes at all times in relation to any action connected with the Accredited User’s use of the GLWS Products and must ensure that they do not perform or omit to perform any act that would cause EEK & SENSE employees or representatives to breach any Statute or Professional Code.
i) EEK & SENSE may cancel or suspend the Accredited User’s access to the MyGLWS website or cancel or suspend the operation of the MyGLWS website in its entirety at any time.

Accredited Users may be permitted to use the GLWS Products and the Intellectual Property Rights in the GLWS Products in their own promotional materials only with the express approval of EEK & SENSE and must comply with all EEK & SENSE directions and guidelines relating to the use of the GLWS Products and associated Intellectual Property Rights if approval is given.
c) Accredited Users must not remove, alter or obscure any identification, copyright, trade mark or other proprietary notices, labels or marks on or in the GLWS Products.
d) It is an infringement of ethical guidelines and of international copyright law to copy, modify, translate or in any way replicate, in whole or in part, the GLWS Products or any Respondent personal information or data. The Accredited User confirms that all reasonably necessary steps shall be taken to ensure that no GLWS Products or Respondent data will be copied, modified, translated, reproduced or used in a way that may infringe EEK & SENSE’s copyright or Intellectual Property Rights and will report to EEK & SENSE any such infringements that they become aware of.
