8. Marketing

You may receive offers and/or promotional emails from us. Where we are legally required to obtain your consent to provide you with marketing materials, we will only provide you with such marketing materials if you have provided consent for us to do so.

If you want to unsubscribe from mailing lists or any marketing, you should look for and follow the instructions we have provided in our relevant communications to you.

If you do not wish to receive marketing communications from us, you can at any time contact us as per Section 18 to request that such communications cease. If you choose to unsubscribe from any or all mailings, we may retain information sufficient to identify you so that we can honour your request.

Where you opt out of receiving marketing communications, we may still process your personal data for other required purposes, as specified in Section 6 above.

9. Retention of your data

We will not retain your personal data for longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal data is processed. This means that your data will only be retained for as long as it is still required to provide you with services or is necessary for legal reasons. When calculating the appropriate retention period for your data, we consider the nature and sensitivity of the data, the purposes for which we are processing the data, and any applicable statutory retention periods. Using these criteria, we regularly review the personal data which we hold and the purposes for which it is held and processed.

When we determine that personal data can no longer be retained (or where you request us to delete your data in accordance with your right to do so (please see Section 14 below for more information)), we ensure that this data is securely deleted or destroyed.

Please note that, in some circumstances we may decide to retain your personal data for research or statistical purposes and, in such circumstances, we will anonymise your data before retaining it.

10. Accuracy of your data

It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal data changes during your relationship with us.

11. Security of your data

In order to protect your personal data, we put in place appropriate organisational and technical security measures. These measures include ensuring our internal IT systems are suitably secure, and implementing procedures to deal with any suspected data breach.

In the unlikely event of a data breach, we will take steps to mitigate any loss or destruction of data and, if required, will notify you and any applicable authority of such a breach.

Although we use appropriate security measures once we have received your personal data, you will appreciate that the transmission of data over the Internet (including by e-mail) is never completely secure. We endeavour to protect personal data, but we cannot guarantee the security of data transmitted to or by us.

12. Transfer of your data to third parties, international transfers of personal data and sharing your personal data

Please read this section if you are accessing our services from the UK and the EEA. It contains important information regarding who we share your personal data with and information regarding international transfers of personal data from the UK to countries outside of the European Economic Area (the “EEA”).

Your personal data is shared with third party service providers who process the information on our behalf so that we can provide our services to you. Our third party providers may use their own subcontractors who may be given access to your personal data in order to provide our services to you. Our main third party providers are located outside of the EEA and therefore your personal data will be transferred to countries outside of the EEA.  If you would like more information regarding these third party service providers please contact us using the information in Section 18.

Our business and that of the third parties we use to deliver our services to you is international in nature. If you are accessing our services from the UK, your personal data will be transferred to countries outside of the EEA, including the United States of America.  In addition, your personal data may be transferred outside the United States to our other offices or service providers with locations in other countries. 

Certain countries have rules relating to the transfer of personal data across borders and require us to ensure that your personal data remains protected according to appropriate standards.

If you have any questions about the transfer of your personal data, please contact us using the details below in Section 18. We may also share details regarding your participation in training sessions to your employer if your employer is paying for our services on your behalf.  Details that we may share with your employer include, but are not limited to, your training progress, performance and completion.  We may also share such details if you provide written permission to us to transmit this information on your behalf.

We do not rent or sell your personal data to any third parties.

We may share your personal data with our third party service providers that help us operate and provide services in connection with our website as described in Section 13

We may use independent contractors or consultants to perform services for the Company. These individuals and entities may have access to your personal data only as needed to perform their functions and are obligated to maintain the confidentiality of your personal data collected from our website.

We also reserve the right to disclose and use your personal data and other information in special circumstances, including to enforce this Privacy Policy or other part of our Terms of Use, to comply with legal process or law enforcement, to address actual or suspected illegal activity, to protect our property or rights, to protect the rights and safety of anyone, or for other reasons we determine in good faith are necessary, appropriate, or required by law.  If we ever merge with, are acquired by, or otherwise consolidate with another organization, your personal data may be transferred along with our other assets.

13. Third party links
