Privacy Policy

This website is operated in conjunction with the International Journal for Transactional Analysis Research & Practice (www.ijtarp.org) in order to make other research-related information available to interested parties.

IJTARP is an international open-access journal and we maintain information about authors, reviewers and subscribers. From this associated website we maintain information about authors, researchers and others who access the site. We do not provide this information to any other organisations. We may analyse this information in terms of demographic data but this will not identify individuals without their consent (e.g. If we had only one subscriber in a locality and wished to enable others to contact them).  Our website uses cookies to collect the usual types of visitor information for analysis and you can set your browser not to accept these, although some websites will then not function completely.

IJTARP Editor, Julie Hay, is the data controller, data processor and data control officer for this website and pays personal attention to how we maintain information about those who contact us.

We also maintain information about researchers, authors, other contributors and donors within reputable CRM and accounting systems. This includes, where known: name, email address(es), address details, telephone and/or other contact details, status in terms of research and/or journal activities, and sometimes notes of conversations that remind us of our discussions with you about related activities.

Our lawful basis for maintaining these records is as defined in the Information Commissioner’s Office (2018): “Contract: the processing is necessary for a contract you have with the individual, or because they have asked you to take specific steps before entering into a contract.” (p.13).

We have an implied contract with visitors to the site to provide them with relevant information and vice versa. We have a contract with researchers and other contributors when we have agreed to publish their material. We have a contract with donors to ensure that donations are applied only to the purposes of supporting transactional analysis research and practice.

Our intended purposes for maintaining records include:

  • managing the provision of information in line with the purposes of the website
  • advising about potential information that may become of interest to those accessing the website
  • liaising with other TA associations or similar professional bodies to request, provide and/or confirm details such as TA qualifications
  • reporting our business results to the relevant authorities (accounts, tax, etc)
  • other purposes as may arise in order to carry out the usual functions associated with such a website
