People on retreat commonly share personal information with members of the retreat team or members of the Dhanakosa community. Such information will always be treated respectfully but the principals of concern for the welfare of living beings may mean that sometimes such information is shared with others. Grounds for sharing personal information of this kind are:
- where sharing of information allows better protection of the individuals welfare or the welfare of others,
- where the information has a direct bearing on the support needs of an individual on that retreat or subsequent retreats, or
- where the individual to whom the information was given requires advice or support in respect to what they have been given.
We will only share personal information to the extent required for the welfare of individuals and the smooth running of our retreats, or where there is a legal requirement that we share information with the authorities.
If you nave concerns about confidentiality or privacy, or any other matter, you may raise these with Nayaka (centre director) or Amoghavira (Chairman of trustees) through our concerns and complaints procedure.
