SFG is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected in line with the recent change to legislation associated with the General Data Protection Regulation. Should we ask you to provide information by which you can be identified when using this website, you can then be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement and in line with GDPR legislation.
SFG may change this policy from time to time by updating this page.
You should check this page from time to time to ensure that you are happy with any changes. This policy is effective from 25th May 2018
Registering for a course forms the contract with SFG and therefore the lawful basis by which we are permitted to use your data – you are paying for our services and we are providing you with learning materials required to pass an academic qualification. We do not retain any information that you provide for payment purposes. We use your contact details to get in touch with you with information directly relating to your course – for instance, legislative updates, industry updates and reminders about your certificate renewal dates.
New learners: We will ask for your permission to contact you for marketing purposes. If you give us permission, we will use email to communicate items that we feel may be of interest to you, including industry and company information, updates and offers. If you do not wish to receive these communications, you will be given the opportunity to unsubscribe, by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of each email or using the unsubscribe option within your personal account settings.
Existing learners: If you became a learner with SFG before the introduction of GDPR, we will show you your marketing communication choice on your admin page, and you will be able to change it here. You will also be able to use the unsubscribe link if we send you any marketing communications.
We use this information to create your learner account, which is uniquely relevant to you. Some of this information, alongside the details of courses you have passed, forms your academic achievement data – we use this information in the following way:
We use wider information such as your interests and industry to understand your needs and provide you with a better service, and in particular for the following reasons:
You may choose to restrict the use of your personal information in the following ways:
Outside of marketing we may need to contact you from time to time for reasons connected with your study (for instance, to alert you to critical course renewal dates). Unsubscribing from marketing messages does not affect this communication. We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties other than those specifically detailed above, unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so.
You may request details of personal information which we hold about you under the Data Protection Act 1998. If you would like a copy of the information held on you please write to The Safer Food Group, 1a Parker Street, Burnley, BB11 1AU, or email us at . You can also check this information yourself by logging into your learner account and viewing your Learner Admin page. You can also request that we delete your account and remove all personal and academic data by writing to us or emailing using the details above, or using the Delete Account link on the Learner Details page.
All dormant accounts will have non-critical information removed on a rolling basis after a five year dormancy period. This time scale has been specified to allow a suitable grace period for course renewals. After this period, we will retain a small portion of critical personal data, to enable learners to continue to access their academic records (this data includes name, date of birth, award, pass mark and date). This does not affect the individual’s ‘right to disappear’ – academic records will be removed at the specific request of a learner, using the Delete Account link, and in this case we will not be able to retrieve these details at a later date.
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Our website hosting service, our online payment service suppliers and our email service provider have been audited to ensure their compliance with data security laws and best industry practice.
