Demographic data: We may collect information such as age, job role, ethnicity, gender and location. This helps us understand who is using our services. This information is anonymised and shared with our research partner to help us understand the profile of people using our website and training platform. The anonymised data will be reviewed 10 years after analysis is completed to determine whether it can be deleted, or if there is a need to retain it for a further set period. 

Survey responses: We collect information via surveys to help inform our products and understand who is using our services. The responses will then be anonymised and shared with our research partner to help us better understand how effective the training tool is. No personal or identifiable information is shared with managers in your organisation. The anonymised data will be reviewed 10 years after analysis is completed to determine whether it can be deleted, or if there is a need to retain it for a further set period. 

How do we store your data?

Google’s model contract clauses have been confirmed by European Data Protection Authorities to meet the requirements to legally frame transfers of data from the EU to the rest of the world.
