HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
We will use your personal data to provide you with services you have requested from us when we collected the information from you to process your training / qualification registration, including to register you as a new student, to process and deliver your registration and to manage payments and fees. We will also inform you of important education events and dates, and to provide you with customer service (such as responding to questions and concerns, and contacting you via email, telephone, or post for this purpose). We will process (collect, store and use) the information you provide in a manner compatible with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
