Some of this information may be collected using cookies and similar tracking technology, as explained further under the heading 'Cookies', below.

1.3 Information that we obtain from third party sources

  • We may receive personal information about you from third party sources (such as your employer if they enroll you on an event), but only where we believe that these third parties either have your consent or are otherwise legally permitted or required to disclose your personal information to us. We collect only the minimum amount of information required from these third parties to enable us to provide the requested service or process any booking you send to us (for example, your educational or employment history). We only use the information we receive from these third parties as set out in this Privacy Notice.

  • Get Real Change reserves the right to assess the financial status of any organisation or individual making a booking or in the process of making a booking via a third party credit rating agency and also reserves the right to require payment prior to confirming a booking and will store this information within your record.

The information that we collect and store relating to you is primarily used to enable us to provide our Services to you. In addition, we may use the information for the following purposes:

  • to provide you with information or Services you request from us;

  • depending upon your separate Marketing Permissions selections we may send you information about related news, products and services.

  • to meet our contractual commitments to you;

8. Cookies

We use cookies and similar tracking technology (collectively, “Cookies”) to collect and use personal information about you.  For further information http://www.aboutcookies.org.uk/ 

9. Legal Basis (EEA visitors only).

Our legal basis for collecting and using personal information will depend on the personal information being collected and the specific context in which we collect it.

However, we will normally collect personal information from you only:

  • where we need the personal information to perform a contract with you (for example, to enroll you into an event or provide you with learning materials);

  • where the processing is in our legitimate interests and is not overridden by your rights; or

  • where we have your consent to do so; 

 

In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect personal information from you.

If we ask you to provide personal information to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contact with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your personal information is mandatory or not (as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your personal information). 

If we collect and use your personal information in reliance on our legitimate interests (or those of any third party), this interest will normally be to operate our platform and communicating with you as necessary to provide our services to you and for our legitimate commercial interest, for instance, when responding to your queries, improving our platform, undertaking marketing, or for the purposes of detecting or preventing illegal activities.  We may have other legitimate interests and if appropriate we will make clear to you at the relevant time what those legitimate interests are.

If you have questions about or need further information concerning the legal basis on which we collect and use your personal information, please contact us using the contact details provided below.
