Privacy Statement in relation to training delegates
Jewel Training will email to you all materials resulting from the training we deliver to you. This might include pre-workshop materials such as a questionnaire, workshop materials such as PowerPoint slides, and assignments (if you are studying for a qualification). These materials form a part of our contract with your employer regarding the training we provide. In some cases your employer may have asked for the materials to be sent to one recipient in your company, to then be forwarded to you. If we have received this request, then you will not receive emailed materials directly from us, but from an intermediary within your own company.

Please note that we are required to keep records (including contact details) of our learners, especially where a qualification is involved. So even if you do not want to be added to our contact list, we will hold your contact details in our own records. And we will send you training materials as previously mentioned, as these form a part of our contract with your employer, we will not, however, send you anything else. All our records, whether paper or electronic are held securely.

The length of time that we hold your details will depend on the type of training you have received and the regulations which we must follow in the cases of qualifications and/or government or other funding streams. As a general rule, we hold information for the current academic year (August to July), plus the three last academic years. You may be interested to know that in the case of apprenticeships, the government currently require that all training providers keep records until 2030!

We may have to share your personal data with our partners (awarding organisations, partner colleges, government bodies) in the case of qualifications and/or government or other funding streams. BUT, please be assured we will never sell your personal data for marketing or any other purpose.
