How do we use your data?

Data Protection law says that we can use personal data only if we have a proper reason to do so. This includes sharing it outside St Hugh’s School. The law says we must have one or more of these reasons:

  • To fulfil a contract we have with you
  • When it's our legal duty
  • When it's in our legitimate interest
  • When you consent to it.

Below is a list of all the ways that we may use your personal data, and which of the reasons we rely on to do so. Our legitimate interests are also below.

Serving your needs and using your data

We use your data to enable us to undertake the running of the TSA in an efficient and proper way. This includes managing our business capability, financial position, communications, governance, planning, and audit.

What we use your personal data for:

  • To deliver our services
  • To manage our relationship with you or your organisation
  • To develop new ways to meet our needs and to grow the work of the Education Partnership
  • To develop and carry out marketing activities
  • To study how our customers use our services
  • To market our services

Our reasons:

  • Your consent
  • Fulfilling contracts
  • Our legitimate interests
  • Our legal duty

Our legitimate interests:

  • Keeping our records up to date
  • Working out which of our services may interest you and telling you about them
  • Developing services, and what we charge for them
  • Defining types of customers for new services
  • Seeking your consent when we need it to contact you
  • To provide you with information relating to events and meetings
  • As an active customer to keep you informed about our latest offers, events and programmes
  • Being efficient about how we fulfil our legal and contractual duties

A legitimate interest is when we have a legitimate reason to use your information. But even then, it must not unfairly go against what is right and best for you. If we rely on our legitimate interest, we will tell you what that is.

Collecting personal information

We collect personal information via application forms, website analytics, e-mails and communications to, from and with the LLF Education Partnership office. Personal data is essential for the operational use of the Education Partnership's programmes and events. Whilst the majority of personal information you provide to us may be mandatory, some of it is requested on a voluntary basis. In order to comply with GDPR, we will inform you at the point of collection, whether you are required to provide certain information to us or if you have a choice in this.

Storing personal information

We hold data securely for the set amount of time shown in our data retention schedule. For more information on our data retention schedule and how we keep your data safe, please visit this website:

St Hugh’s School (LLF Education Partnership) will store all the personal information you provide [on its secure servers]. St Hugh’s School (Lead School: LLF Education Partnership) will take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information

Who we share data with

We do not share personal data with any individual or commercial organisation other than the Department for Education (DfE). We do routinely share statistical summaries, excluding personal data, with the Department for Education (DfE) and our partners for the purpose of understanding the success, reach and outcomes of our events and programmes.

What happens if you choose not to give us your personal data?

We may need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you. If you choose not to give us this personal data, it may delay or prevent us providing our services to you. For example, not providing an email address would prevent us from providing you with the joining instructions for an event.

Sometimes we might ask for information that is useful for us to know but is not required by law or a contract. When this is the case, we will make this clear by marking it as optional. You do not have to provide these extra bits of information, and your decisions will not prevent us providing you with our services.

How do we use your data for marketing?

We may use your personal data to tell you about our relevant services and offers. This is what we mean when we talk about ‘marketing’. We may also use your data to help create a profile to find potential customers like you.

We will send you marketing based on what you tell us about yourself, data we collect when you use our services. We use this information to get a view on what we think would interest you the most.

We will only send you marketing messages if we have either your consent or a legitimate interest. This is when we have a legitimate reason to use your information that does not unfairly go against what is right and best for you.

You can ask us to stop sending you marketing messages by contacting us at any time. Whatever you choose for marketing, you'll still receive service messages, such as booking confirmations and event changes.

Why we share personal information

We do not share information about any individual or group of applicants with anyone without consent unless the law and our policies allow us to do so.

Department for Education

The Department for Education (DfE) collects personal data from educational settings and local authorities via various statutory data collections. We are required to share information with the Department for Education (DfE) for the purpose of those data collections, when requested.
