4 . 1. When you have given us consent to do so.

4 . 2. The performance of a contract with you.

4 . 3. Where necessary to comply with a legal obligation.

  • To develop our business, improve our website and overall user experience and inform our marketing strategy.
  • To ensure that our website is fully functional and operating in the most effective way for you.

  • To develop our business, promote new products and services, obtain feedback from customers to improve our products and services.

Importantly, we will only use your personal data when the law allows us to and will only use it for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.

In addition to the above, we may also anonymise and aggregate your personal data in a way which means you cannot be identified. This may be helpful to us for testing our internal systems, carrying out research and general customer data analysis. Because this is not personally identifiable, we can use this for any purposes.

5. Who do we share your data with?

Importantly, we do not pass your personal data onto any third parties for them to market their products/services to you. If in the future we decide that we want to, we will only do so if we have your consent.

We do however share your personal data with third parties to help us to deliver our products and services to you in the most effective way possible. These include third parties who assist us with:

5 . 7. Other aspects of our service delivery, such as hosting our website and processing customer payments.

If we share personal data with third parties, we will ensure that access is limited on a strictly need to know basis and is subject to suitable obligations relating to confidentiality and security. Please note that certain of these third party service providers use cookies or other tracking technologies, which are explained more fully in our Cookies Policy, please see Item 13.

In addition to the above, we may also be required to share your personal data with third parties if required by law or regulation. In such circumstances, we will make sure that the disclosure is only to the extent required by law or regulation.

6. Do we send any of your data outside of the EEA?

The European Economic Area or “EEA” is deemed to have good standards when it comes to data privacy. As such, we consciously limit the occasions when we may need to transfer or handle your data outside of the EEA. Where we do, for example where our service providers are based outside of the EEA, we make sure that your data is still treated fairly and lawfully in all respects (including making sure we have a legal ground for sending your data outside the EEA and putting in place all necessary safeguards for such arrangement).

7. How do we keep your data secure?

7 . 1. We adopt industry standard security processes to ensure your data is kept safe and secure and to prevent unauthorised access or use or loss of your data. By way of example, we use secure server software (EV SSL) which encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us. We also make sure that third parties who need to handle your data when helping us to deliver our products and services are subject to suitable confidentiality and security standards.

7 . 2. Despite the security measures we implement, please be aware that the transmission of data via the internet is not completely secure. As such, we cannot guarantee that information transmitted to us via the internet will be completely secure and any transmission is at your own risk.

8. How long do we keep your data for?

We will keep your data for as long as you hold a Curriculum Press account and/or where you are still happy to hear from us about our latest news, products and services. Once you no longer wish to be engaged with Curriculum Press, we may still need to keep hold of your data if there is a legal reason for doing so (such as for tax purposes where you have made purchases or where we need to resolve any disputes with you).
