Relying on our legitimate interests

We have carried out balancing tests for all the data processing we carry out on the basis of our legitimate interests, which we have described above. You can obtain information on any of our balancing tests by contacting us using the details set out later in this notice.

Withdrawing consent or otherwise objecting to direct marketing
Wherever we rely on your consent, you will always be able to withdraw that consent, although we may have other legal grounds for processing your personal data for other purposes, such as those set out above. In some cases, we are able to send you direct marketing without your consent, where we rely on our legitimate interests. You have an absolute right to opt-out of direct marketing, at any time. You can do this by following the instructions in the communication where this is an electronic message, updating your preferences in any account or by contacting us using the details set out below.

Who will we share this personal data with, where and when?

We will share your personal data within the Dukes Education Group for reporting, safeguarding, quality control and potential referral basis (for example, to our consultancy division in respect of university applications). Personal data will also be shared with other organisations, such as insurers and organisations which conduct background checks, where necessary.

Personal data may be shared with government authorities and/or law enforcement officials if required for the purposes above, if mandated by law or if required for the legal protection of our legitimate interests in compliance with applicable laws.

Personal data will also be shared with third party service providers, who will process it on behalf of a Controller for the purposes identified above. In particular, we use third party providers of website hosting, maintenance, marketing and identity checking.

In the event that the business is sold or integrated with another business, your details will be disclosed to our advisers and any prospective purchaser’s adviser and will be passed to the new owners of the business.

All accommodation, campuses, cleaning and catering are provided by third party providers (the host schools and colleges) which are hired in advance of the Course Start Date. We will share personal data with these suppliers to assist us in performing our duties – eg. to ensure dietary requirements are met.

What rights do I have?

You have the right to ask us for a copy of your personal data; to correct, delete or restrict (stop any active) processing of your personal data; and to obtain the personal data you provide to us for a contract or with your consent in a structured, machine readable format, and to ask us to share (port) this personal data with another controller.

In addition, you can object to the processing of your personal data in some circumstances (in particular, where we don’t have to process the personal data to meet a contractual or other legal requirement, or where we are using the personal data for direct marketing).

These rights may be limited, for example if fulfilling your request would reveal personal data about another person, where they would infringe the rights of a third party (including our rights) or if you ask us to delete information which we are required by law to keep or have compelling legitimate interests in keeping. Relevant exemptions are included in both the GDPR and in the Data Protection Act 2018. We will inform you of relevant exemptions we rely upon when responding to any request you make.

If you have unresolved concerns, you have the right to complain to an EU data protection authority where you live, work or where you believe a breach may have occurred. This is likely to be the Information Commissioner’s Office in the UK.

How long will you retain my personal data?

We only retain your personal data for as long as is required by law, or for as long as necessary for the purposes for which we process your personal data. Please refer to our Data Retention Policy available on request for further information.


We are mindful that some of our courses are attended by minors who, by law, cannot consent to the processing of their personal data if they are under the age of 13.

Any booking made for any child under the age of 18 must be submitted by either a parent who holds parental responsibility for the child, or by a school/institution which they attend who has the necessary authority to provide the information on the child's behalf.

By submitting a booking you are specifically providing consent to our processing of the child’s personal data.

Photography and Videoing at Events. 

From time to time we will take photos and videos of students during their time at an event. The purpose of this is to assist us with training and refreshing the programme content, as well as for use in promotional material. In addition, some recorded programme content will be made available to other students who could not attend on the day for personal reasons.

Our lawful basis for processing this information will be either consent or legitimate interests, depending on the processing activity. 

If You Fail to Provide Personal Data

Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you, and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to provide you with goods or services).


We use different methods to collect data from and about you including through:

  • Direct interactions. You may give us your Identity, Contact and Financial Data by filling in forms or by corresponding with us by post, phone, email or otherwise. This includes personal data you provide when you:
    • request our products or services;
    • create an account on our website;
    • subscribe to our service or publications;
    • request marketing to be sent to you;
    • participate in discussion boards or other social media functions on our Site;
    • report a problem with our Site;
    • enter a competition, promotion or survey; or
    • give us feedback or contact us.
  • Automated technologies or interactions. As you interact with our Site, we will automatically collect Technical Data about your equipment, browsing actions and patterns. We collect this personal data by using cookies, server logs and other similar technologies. We may also receive Technical Data about you if you visit other websites employing our cookies. Please see our cookie policy below for further details.

We may also collect personal data from various third parties and public sources. 

Information From Other Sources

This is information we receive about you if you use any of the other websites we operate or the other services we provide. In this case we will have informed you when we collected that data if we intend to share those data internally and combine it with data collected on this Site. We are working closely with third parties (including, for example, business partners, sub-contractors in technical, payment and delivery services, advertising networks, analytics providers, search information providers, credit reference agencies). We will notify you when we receive information about you from them and the purposes for which we intend to use that information.


The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the United Kingdom and European Economic Area ("EEA"). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the UK or EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers. This includes staff engaged in, among other things, the fulfilment of your order, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services.

The law restricts data transfers to countries outside the UK or EEA in order to ensure that the level of data protection afforded to individuals is not undermined. We transfer personal data originating in one country across borders when we transmit, send, view or access that data in or to a different country. 

We will only transfer Personal Data outside the UK or EEA if one of the following conditions applies:

  • the UK Government and/or European Commission (as applicable) has issued a decision confirming that the country to which we transfer the personal data ensures an adequate level of protection for the data subjects' rights and freedoms;
  • appropriate safeguards are in place such as binding corporate rules (BCR), standard contractual clauses approved by UK Government and/or the European Commission (as applicable), an approved code of conduct or a certification mechanism;
  • you have provided explicit consent to the proposed transfer after being informed of any potential risks; or
  • the transfer is necessary for one of the other reasons set out in law including the performance of your contract with us, reasons of public interest, to establish, exercise or defend legal claims or to protect your vital interests where you are physically or legally incapable of giving consent and, in some limited cases, for our legitimate interest.

In particular, we currently engage the Rocket Science Group LLC (trading as “MailChimp”), a US company, to maintain our online email databases and to allow us to keep in contract with you, primarily by sending emails. MailChimp is committed to protecting all personal information received from us and we have entered into appropriate contractual arrangements with MailChimp in order to ensure the security and proper use of your data but if you have any questions about this, please contact the data privacy manager directly. A link to MailChimp’s own privacy notice can be found here: 

Please contact our data privacy manager if you want further information about when we may transfer your information outside the UK or EEA and the specific mechanisms used by us to ensure the protection of your personal data.


We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

We do not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law). You can obtain further information about how we assess our legitimate interests against any potential impact on you in respect of specific activities by contacting us.
