- Register you as a new customer;
- Manage our relationship with you e.g. by updating records if required, notifying you of any policy changes, asking for information etc.;
- Collect certain information which is required by our regulator (for example your date of birth) and register your details with our regulator so as to meet the requirements for awarding certification at the end of your course;
- Assess any assignments you are required to complete as part of your course;
- Sending your certificate to you;
- Monitor your use of our website to best inform the services we offer to you;
- Suggest and recommend any goods and services that we provide;

Our work for you may require us to share your information with any member of our group.
We are also required to share your information with our regulator, Pearsons, who are the awarding body for BTEC. If we do not share your information with them, you cannot obtain your qualification, so we have a legitimate interest for sharing the information with them.
We may also pass your information to our third-party service providers, agents, subcontractors and professional advisers that provide a service to us or act as our agents, on the understanding they keep the information confidential. These include, but are not limited to, any third parties that process information on our behalf (e.g. internet service and platform providers), payment processing providers and our professional advisers.
In all the above instances, we will only provide the personal information necessary to deliver our services to you and we require those third parties to keep secure your personal data so that they may not use it for their own direct marketing purposes.

We may send you information about our training services which may be of interest to you. If you have consented to receive marketing, you may opt out at a later date.

You have the right to seek a restriction of the processing of your personal data in certain circumstances. Further, you have the right to lodge an objection if you feel that one of the grounds relating to your particular situation apply.
