- We apply a general rule of keeping personal data only for as long as it is required and necessary to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected. However, in some circumstances, we will retain your personal data for longer periods of time.
- We will retain personal data as long as it is necessary and relevant for our operations and for fulfilling our obligations as a course provider, e.g., so that we have an accurate record of your dealings with us in the event of any complaints or challenges; so that the training records or certificates are available to our users at any time in the future; or if we are required to provide evidence of training in the event of a legal request to comply with applicable laws, prevent fraud, collect any fees owed, resolve disputes, assist with any investigation, enforce our Terms and Conditions and take other actions as permitted by law.
- HOW WE PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL DATA
- The security of your information is important to us, and we will use all reasonable security measures to prevent the loss, misuse, or unauthorized alteration of your information under our control.
- Our employees are bound by strict confidentiality agreements and a breach of this agreement would result in the employee’s termination.
- While we take all reasonable precautions to ensure that user data is secure and that users are protected, there always remains the risk of harm. The internet can be insecure at times and therefore, we are unable to guarantee the security of user data beyond what is reasonably practical.
- WHERE WE PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA
- If you are located in the United Kingdom (“UK”) or the European Union (“EU”) / European Economic Area (“EEA”), we will only transfer your personal data if:
- The country your personal data being transferred to has been deemed to have adequate data protection by the European Commission; or if you are in the UK, by the UK adequacy regulations.
- We have implemented appropriate safeguards in respect of the transfer. For example, the recipient is a party to binding corporate rules or we have entered into standard EU or UK data protection contractual clauses with the recipient.
- We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your personal data is treated securely and in accordance with this Policy.
- If your data is transferred outside of the UK or EEA, we have procedures in place to ensure your data receives the same protection as if it were being processed inside the UK or EEA.
