We take great care at TEFL Org UK with our customers’ information and data, and we’ve always aimed to uphold the highest standards of security and follow best practices when managing your course.
With the upcoming changes in data protection regulations coming from GDPR’s implementation later this month, we wanted to share some information with you how we store and use your data.
Here are some other key areas where we receive your data, and what we do with it:
Permission when requesting data
We will ask your explicit permission when requesting data from you when signing up for our course, making a course enquiry, or any other interaction with our website or our advisors.
When you sign up for a course we take some details from you. These details are only used to process your course booking and to send your certificate to you. We only store your name, address, email address and contact phone number. Your password is saved in a hashed format so that it cannot be accessed by anyone.
We’ll shortly send out an email to all students asking you to review the information on your student account to ensure it’s accurate and we can get in touch with you.
We do not store any credit card or payment information on our systems, these are handled by our secure payment partners SecureHosting, WorldPay and Stripe.
If you are signed up to our newsletter, we only record the first name, last name and email address you provide, as well as how you signed up. If you are enrolled on a course with us, we also record this information to provide you tailored emails.
You’ll shortly receive an email asking for you to re-authorise us to send you newsletters. This will simply include clicking a link, reviewing some of your details and confirming them for us. This won’t affect emails that we send out during bookings, managing your course or issuing your certificate.
If you have any questions about these changes, or wish to discuss anything, please get in touch with us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 01349 800600.
