- What is Personal Data?
Personal data is defined by the General Data Protection Regulation (EU Regulation 2016/679) (the “GDPR”) as ‘any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified in particular by reference to an identifier’.
Personal data is, in simpler terms, any information about you that enables you to be identified. Personal data covers obvious information such as your name and contact details, but it also covers less obvious information such as identification numbers, electronic location data, and other online identifiers. It does not include anonymised data.

- The right to access the personal data we hold about you. Section 10 will tell you how to do this.

- The right to restrict the processing of your personal data.
- The right to object to us using your personal data for a particular purpose or purposes.
- The right to data portability.

- What Data Do You Collect?
Depending upon how you use the Website and whether you are a client of ours, the types of personal and non-personal data that we collect are listed in the Schedule.
- How Do You Use My Personal Data?
Under the GDPR, we must always have a lawful basis for using personal data. This may be because the data is necessary for our performance of a contract with you, because you have consented to our use of your personal data, or because it is in our legitimate business interests to use it. Your personal data may be used for one or more of the following purposes:
- Supplying services to you. Your personal details are required in order for us to enter into a contract with you.
- Personalising and tailoring our services for you. This may involve providing a bespoke training quote and sourcing training courses that meet your requirements.
- Enabling you to access e-learning.
- Communicating with you. This may include responding to emails or calls from you.
- Supplying you with information by email that you have opted-in to (you may unsubscribe or opt-out at any time by clicking on the ‘Unsubscribe’ link at the foot of the email).
With your permission and/or where permitted by law, we may also use your personal data for marketing purposes, which may include contacting you by email, telephone, text message and post with information and news about our services. You will not be sent any unlawful marketing or spam. We will always work to fully protect your rights and comply with our obligations under the GDPR and the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003, and you will always have the opportunity to opt-out.
- How Long Will You Keep My Personal Data?
We will only retain your personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for. These purposes may include satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
When deciding what is the correct time to retain your personal data, we consider its amount, nature and sensitivity, potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure, the processing purposes, and whether these can be achieved by other means and legal requirements. Some personal data may be retained for up to 8 years to enable us to comply with various regulatory requirements.
In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
- How and Where Do You Store or Transfer My Personal Data?
We will only store or transfer your personal data within the European Economic Area (the “EEA”). The EEA consists of all EU member states, plus Norway, Iceland, and Liechtenstein. This means that your personal data will be fully protected under the GDPR or to equivalent standards by law.
- Do You Share My Personal Data?
If you purchase or access e-learning some or all of your personal data may be shared with the following third parties:
Please contact us directly for our up to date list of third parties.
If any of your personal data is transferred to the third party, we will take steps to ensure that your personal data is handled safely, securely, and in accordance with your rights, our obligations, and the third party’s obligations under the law, as described above.
If any personal data is transferred outside of the EEA, we will take suitable steps to ensure that your personal data is treated just as safely and securely as it would be within the UK and under the GDPR, as explained above.
In some limited circumstances, we may be legally required to share certain personal data, which might include yours, if we are involved in legal proceedings or complying with legal obligations, a court order, or the instructions of a government authority.
- Can I Withhold Information?
You may access the Website without providing any personal data. However, to use all features and functions available on the Website (e.g. the contact form and purchasing or accessing e-learning) you may be required to submit or allow for the collection of certain data.
- How Can I Access My Personal Data?
If you want to know what personal data we hold about you, you can ask us for details of that personal data and for a copy of it (where any such personal data is held). This is known as a “subject access request”.
All subject access requests should be made in writing and sent to the email address shown in section 12.
There is not normally any charge for a subject access request. If your request is ‘manifestly unfounded or excessive’ (for example, if you make repetitive requests) a fee may be charged to cover our administrative costs in responding.
We will respond to your subject access request within one month of receiving it. Normally, we aim to provide a complete response, including a copy of your personal data within that time. In some cases, however, particularly if your request is more complex, more time may be required up to a maximum of three months from the date we receive your request. You will be kept fully informed of our progress.
