Why do you need my information?

We need your information so that we know who has attended the Webinar and so that we can send you a certificate. We also want to monitor how many people have attended the event and what schools they are from.

What allows you to use my information?

Your registration or attendance at the webinar allows us to use your information.

Who will my information be shared with?

Your information will be shared with Knowsley Council for you to attend the webinar and receive a certificate.  We will also monitor the number of people that have attended the webinars and the different educational organisations that have attended for our recording and reporting purposes. The information may be shared with your employer. Personal names and email addresses will not be used for any other purpose unless it is lawful to do so.

Do I have to provide this information and what will happen if I don’t?

If you do not provide your information, you will not be able to register for the training. You therefore have the choice as to whether you want to provide your information to participate in the webinar.

How long will you keep this data for and why?

Your data will be retained for a maximum of 6 months from the date of the webinar when it will then be destroyed.

How will my information be stored?

Your information will be stored electronically on a council secured server.  This will prevent any unauthorised/unlawful processing.  It will also prevent accidental loss, destruction or damage from a technical and operational perspective as IT have backup systems in the case of such eventualities.

Will this information be used to take automated decisions about me?


Will my data be transferred abroad and why?
