Contact details may be shared with others on the same course with consent.

Attendance records and examination results are provided to us by tutors, and may be shared with delegates’ employers where they have arranged and paid for the training course. They have a legitimate interest in having this information.

We may also share personal data with IT and other office support providers, pursuant to GDPR compliant contracts, because it is in our legitimate interest to do so in order to run our Training Centre. Our contractors are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
