  • Apply to one of our courses or programmes
  • Attend one of our courses or programme sessions
  • Sign up to our newsletters
  • Interact with us on social media
  • Provide us with services


If you choose not to give us personal information it may prevent us from working effectively and safely with you.  In this instance we would be unable to enter into a working relationship with you


Sharing your data

We do not share your information with third parties unless you have given your permission to do so or there is a legal requirement to do so such as protection of yourself or others if we feel there is a risk, or we receive a legal request for your records.


We share your information only with those you have given us permission to contact for example your doctor (unless required to by law for the purpose of safeguarding yourself or others).


We will only send you information that you have agreed to receive.  You may remove yourself from any mailing list, newsletter circulation or email from us at any point you choose.


Storing your data

All data will be stored securely and in line with legal requirements.

We will store your clinical information for a maximum of 7 years after our last contact with you.  Enquiries and applications that you make and then do not choose to follow up on will be stored for 12 months.  You may request these to be destroyed ahead of this timescale.



We may use your personal information to give you information and ongoing support, and to give you information about courses and offers.  This is what we mean when we talk about ‘marketing’.


The personal information we have for you is made up of what you tell us and data we collect when you use our services.


We can only use your personal information to send you marketing messages if we have your consent.  You can ask us to stop sending you marketing messages by unsubscribing at any time.


We may ask you to confirm or update your choices, if you take out any new services with us in future. We will also ask you to do this if there are changes in the law, regulation, or the structure of our business.


Email marketing campaigns may contain tracking facilities within the actual email. Subscriber activity is tracked and stored in a database for future analysis and evaluation. Such tracked activity may include; the opening of emails, forwarding of emails, the clicking of links within the email content, times, dates and frequency of activity (this is by no far a comprehensive list).

This information is used to refine future email campaigns and supply the user with more relevant content based around their activity.

In compliance with UK Spam Laws and the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003 subscribers are given the opportunity to unsubscribe at any time through an automated system. This process is detailed at the footer of each email campaign. If you wish us to delete all email contact with you then please let us know.



We can only use your personal information to send you newsletters if we have your consent.




Shortened Links in Social Media

Through social media platform accounts we may share web links to relevant web pages. By default some social media platforms shorten lengthy URLs. Users are advised to take caution and good judgement before clicking any shortened URLs published on social media platforms by us. Despite the best efforts to ensure only genuine URLs are published many social media platforms are prone to spam and hacking and therefore we cannot be held liable for any damages or implications caused by visiting any shortened links.


Your Rights

If you wish us to delete, remove or stop using your personal information we will do so on request as long as there is no legal or justifiable need for us to keep it. This is known as the ‘right to object’ or ‘right to erasure’ or the ‘right to be forgotten’.


You may withdraw your consent at any time.  If you withdraw your consent we will be unable to provide products or services to you.  Please contact us if you wish to withdraw your consent.  You should understand that when exercising your rights, other legislation and requirements may take precedence over any request you make (for example our insurers insist we keep all clinical records for at least 7 years).  In addition, where necessary we may be required by law to grant access to your data for law enforcement, legal and/or health related matters.


How to get a copy of your personal information

Please email us at [email protected] requesting a copy of your personal information.  We will provide information to you within 28 days.


If you believe the information held by us, about you, is wrong or incomplete please contact us.  We will take reasonable steps to check its accuracy and correct it.
