How will we use information about you?

We collect the information about you so that we can process your training booking, manage your account (including invoicing) and to maintain a record of your training accreditation.

Unless we are obliged or permitted by law to do so, and subject to any third-party disclosures specifically set out in this policy, your data will not be disclosed to third parties.

Our website uses Cookies to improve your experience of using the website.  Cookies are a small text file placed on your computer by this website when you visit certain parts of the website and/or when you use certain features of the website.  Before the website uses Cookies, you will be presented with a message bar requesting your consent to set these Cookies.

We use two types of Cookies:

  • Analysis/Performance Cookies – these allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works.
  • Functionality Cookies – these are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences.

How long will we store this data for and how?

We hold your information for as long as your training accreditation is valid, plus seven years following the end of this period in order to comply with financial accounting regulations.

Information collected for the purposes of Google Analytics is retained for 26 months.

We store your data in a variety of places including our financial accounting software, our customer database and within our cloud based storage system.

Who has access to your information?

Third party suppliers that undertake the administration of the training programmes for ESSET will be provided with your data in order to manage your booking request and maintain your training accreditation.

The course leaders will be provided with your name (first and last name) and school/academy name on commencement of the training programme.

How will we keep your data safe?

We understand the importance of security of your personal information and take appropriate steps to safeguard it.  Your information is stored in a database, which is stored on our cloud based server (Dropbox).  We regularly review our IT provision to ensure security and that what we have is fit for purpose.  All individuals who access the database are trained in how to use the information in a secure and sensitive way, and our policies on accessing information from other devices ensure that your information is as secure as it can reasonably be.

No data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.  So while we strive to safeguard your information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you provide online and you do this at your own risk.

What is the legal basis for us using your data?

We will only use your data to fulfil the contract we are about to or have entered into with you or where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.
