Welcome to the Advanced Learning Alliance website. We hope that you enjoy using our site. On this page you can browse our privacy policy, get information on how we collect and use cookies, and read more about the terms and conditions of using this site.

Throughout this page, the terms “Advanced Learning Alliance”, or “us” or “we” refers to the owner of the website. The term “you” refers to the user or viewer of our website.

Privacy and security

Respecting your privacy and ensuring the confidentiality of your personal information is critical to us. Our Privacy Policy explains how we collect, safeguard and use your data, and is designed to ensure that we interact with you in accordance with your wishes and in line with current data protection legislation, including the General Data Protection Regulation of May 2018.

Please note that this statement does not extend to websites that are linked to this website. You should refer to the privacy policies of any such websites for further details about their use of your personal information.

What do we mean by "personal information?"

For us, "personal information" means information which identifies you, like your name or email address. Any information that does not identify you is "non-personal information."

General Use Of Your Information

When does Advanced Learning Alliance receive your personal information?

We collect personal information about you when you provide it to us. We only collect personal data relevant to the type of transactions you make with Advanced Learning Alliance.

How will Advanced Learning Alliance use your personal data?

Advanced Learning Alliance will use your personal information for administrative reasons, such as to answer your correspondence, keep your records up to date or to implement your instructions (for example, to ensure you no longer receive marketing information if you tell us to stop sending it to you). We may also use your data for marketing purposes, if you have given us permission to do so.

How do we use personal information collected prior to May 2018?

The way that we collect your consent to send you marketing information has changed since the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force. If you sent us an enquiry before May 2018, we asked you whether you were happy to receive marketing communication at that time. Unless you opted out from receiving such communication at that point, we will have registered you as being happy to receive these materials.

How do we keep your data secure?

We take all necessary steps to ensure any information you provide to us online is safe, secure and managed correctly. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure of this data we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures.

How long will Advanced Learning Alliance keep your personal information?

We will only hold your personal information on our systems for as long as we need to. Once your data is no longer required, or if you request that we do so, we will delete your information from our database.

How can you control what we send you or request we update your personal information?

The accuracy of your information is really important to us. We want to ensure that we are able to communicate with you in ways that you are happy with, and to provide you with information that is of interest. You can tell us that your details have changed or change the way that we communicate with you in a number of ways.

What Other Information Do We Gather?

In addition to information gathered directly (as outlined above), we also gather information indirectly. This information does not identify you to us, but allows us to analyse how our website is being used, ensures that the site runs smoothly, and allows us to make improvements to our online service.
