Using Your Information


Your data and the EEA

We deal with a number of institutions outside the EEA as we are a global learning platform and as part of our contract with you may need to share details of your leaning with these accreditation bodies.

We don’t process data outside the European Economic Area unless we have your specific consent.
Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:

  • We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission.
  • We may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe.
  • Where we use providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between the Europe and the US

Third parties

As a general principle, we will not transfer your personal data to third parties without your permission unless you have consented for us to do so more details in Table1 above

  • To withdraw any consents you have given us to process your data 

If you want to exercise any of these rights, including withdrawing consent, please just contact us at

You also have the right to lodge a complaint about our processing with a supervisory authority — you probably want the UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office .in the UK who can provide you with their equivalent organisations within the EEA if needed.
