We may also send you direct marketing in relation to our relevant products and services or other products and services provided by us. Electronic direct marketing may be sent, where we believe there is a legitimate interest to provide you with relevant information on our services or where you have given your consent to receive it. You will be able to continue to opt-out of electronic direct marketing at any time by following the instructions in the relevant communication.
3. Sharing personal data
We may share your personal data with our support team, facilitators, coaches and trainers for the purposes of administration and to deliver products or services, where elements of these are provided by sub-contractors or events' organisers other than those with which you have directly contracted.
We may also share your personal data with the below third parties:
Personal data may be shared with government authorities and/or law enforcement officials if required for the purposes above, if mandated by law or if needed for the legal protection of our legitimate interests in compliance with applicable laws.
In the event that our business or any part of it is sold or integrated with another business, your details will be disclosed to our advisers and those of any prospective purchaser and will be passed to the new owners of the business.
4. Retention of personal data
We will not keep your personal information for any purpose(s) for longer than is necessary and we will only retain the relevant personal information that is necessary in relation to the purpose. We are also required to retain certain information by law or if it is reasonably necessary to meet regulatory requirements, resolve disputes, prevent fraud and abuse, or enforce our terms and conditions. Our retention periods are outlined in our Data protection policy.
We will retain information relating to any job application for as long as it takes to process your application and, if it is unsuccessful, for an additional period of around 6 months. If your application is successful, your information will be retained in accordance with your Contract of employment and our Data protection policy.
We will retain your data for a short time beyond the specified retention period, to allow for information to be reviewed and any deletion to take place.
