We, ScreenSkills, (we/us/our), or any successor in title are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.
By using the ScreenSkills website (and in particular by submitting your personal information to us via the ScreenSkills website or, if you are a parent, by consenting for your child to do the same), you give your consent to the collection, storage and use of your or, as applicable, your child’s personal information, as described in this Policy. If you are a parent allowing your child to use the ScreenSkills website, references in this Policy to ‘your personal information’ shall be to your child’s personal information.
The ScreenSkills website is controlled by us from our offices in the United Kingdom (UK). Personal information collected via the ScreenSkills website is processed in compliance with the General Data Protection Guidelines of May 2018 (GDPR) and any other subsequent Data Protection Legislation UK (Act). For the purpose of the GDPR, we are registered as a Data Controller (our registration number is Z8941934) and our Data Protection Officers are:
If you choose to visit the ScreenSkills website from outside the UK, you do so at your own risk, with the understanding that personal information collected from the ScreenSkills website may be collected, stored and used in a country whose privacy laws may be different and less protective than those of your home country.
If you are under the age of 18, please get permission from your parent before you provide personal information through the ScreenSkills website.
The use of your information for the purposes set out above is lawful because one or more of the following applies:
If you want to contact us about your marketing preferences please contact email@example.com or call on 02077139800
When you visit the ScreenSkills website, we may collect and process the following information about you, which includes “personal data” as defined in the Act:
Personal information collected by the ScreenSkills website is often limited to contact details and some basic information about your area of work and employment status, but may include other information necessary to provide a particular service you have requested.
Sensitive, including special category personal data may include data about your ethnic origin, nationality, gender, membership of a trade union or association, employment status, sexual orientation, caring responsibilities, number of children and, in some cases, your socio-economic background. If you are under 18 you will need to ensure your parent provides us with their consent for you to provide sensitive data about yourself.
If you are applying for a service for which government funding is available, you may need to answer certain additional questions such as your age and your current education and employment status, in order for us to evaluate whether you are eligible for that funding. By providing your information to the ScreenSkills website, you explicitly give your consent for us to process your personal and sensitive data. However, when we collect sensitive personal data through the ScreenSkills website, we will ask you to consent to our uses of the data, and you may choose not to give us this consent if you so desire. Wherever the provision of information is optional, this will be made clear.
We will treat any information we collect in accordance with this Policy.
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 some or all of the information about you for the following purposes:
Occasionally, we (or trusted third parties carefully selected by us) may wish to send you information about our (and/or their) products, services and activities. Before you are sent any such information, we will ask whether you wish to receive such information. If you confirm that you do wish to receive such information and/or your parent confirms to us that it is OK for you to receive such information, you are consenting to the use of your personal information (and, if applicable, the sharing of it with such trusted third parties) for that purpose. If you confirm that you do not wish to receive such information, we will not use your personal information, and we will not share it with such trusted third parties, for that purpose. You can withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
All information you provide to us is stored, usually within the UK or other parts of the European Economic Area (EEA), on secure servers hosted by us or third parties providing hosting or other services for us.
We store application details including personal, sensitive data in electronic forms which are filed on our secure intranet. Hard copies of application forms are stored in lockable cabinets in a secure office environment.
Owing to matters such as financial or technical considerations the information you provide to us may be transferred to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA), which are not subject to the same data protection regulations as apply in the UK. We may do this as some corporate systems are hosted on servers outside of EEA e.g. USA, Switzerland etc.
We meet our obligations under GDPR by ensuring that the information has equivalent protection as if it were being held within the EEA. We do this by ensuring that there are appropriate safeguards in place with any third parties processing your data outside the EEA. This will usually be because the country either benefits from an adequacy determination for GDPR purposes and/or, where appropriate, we have entered into a Data Processing Agreement with the third party which contains model EU clauses or the third party works under EU-US Privacy Shield Framework.
We take every reasonable precaution to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information and to ensure that it will be processed in accordance with this Policy. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure and therefore we cannot guarantee the security of data sent to us electronically. You acknowledge and accept that, despite our efforts to protect your personal information, there is a risk that others may try to intercept the personal information you provide to us. Transmission of your information is entirely at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password so that you can access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential.
We will not disclose your personal information to third parties, except where the data may be provided to a third party company, such as an email newsletter tools e.g. Mail Chimp or web agency, for the sole purpose of delivering a service on the ScreenSkills website’s behalf (provided you, or your parent if you are a child, have consented to this).
Your personal data - your name address, contact details etc. - will only be shared with partners or funders connected by contract with the training opportunity you have applied for. Where we need to share it with a specific organisation, e.g. the BFI, we will ask your (or, if you are a child, your parent’s) permission to do so.
Your sensitive personal data including special category sensitive data, concerning characteristics such as your gender, ethnicity, disability or sexual orientation is always asked for on a voluntary basis - you can choose not to say - and diversity statistics gathered through our monitoring systems are always reported anonymously.
We may disclose your personal information if we are required to do so under any legal obligation and may use external data for the purposes of fraud prevention and credit risk reduction, or where doing so would not infringe your rights, but is necessary and in the public interest.
Other than this, we will not share your information with other organisations without your consent.
The ScreenSkills website has taken care to ensure that the information on the ScreenSkills website is correct. However, no warranty, express or implied, is given as to its accuracy and the ScreenSkills website does not accept any liability for error or omission. The ScreenSkills website is not responsible for how the information is used, how it is interpreted or what reliance is placed on it. We do not guarantee that the information on the ScreenSkills website is fit for any particular purpose. You should also be aware that the availability of courses of study is subject to conditions applied by individual institutions at their sole discretion.
You will find links to third party websites on the ScreenSkills website. These third party websites should have their own privacy policies which you should check before you submit any personal data to them. We are not responsible and do not accept any liability for the privacy practices or content of such websites. The ScreenSkills website does not endorse any of the products or services of third party organisations contained within its sites unless expressly stated.
You have the right to request details of the personal details and or processing activities that we carry out with your personal information through making a Subject Access Request. Such requests have to be made in writing. On or after 25 May 2018 no charge may be made under GDPR except in very limited circumstances, which will be explained to you if relevant. More details about how to make a request and the procedure can be found on our Data Subject Access Request page.
You have the following rights: (as introduced in the UK under the GDPR in May 2018):
All of these rights are subject to certain safeguards and limits or exemptions, further details of which can be found in our Data Protection Policy. To exercise any of these rights, you should contact Data Protection Officer(s) at email@example.com
If you are not happy with the way in which we have processed or dealt with your information, you can complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office. Further details about how to complain can be found on our complaints page.
The Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOA) provides public access to information held by public authorities. It does this in two ways:
The FOA covers any recorded information that is held by a public authority in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and by UK-wide public authorities based in Scotland. Information held by Scottish public authorities is covered by Scotland's own Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.
The ScreenSkills website is not a public body, and therefore is not directly subject to the FOA. The list of public bodies covered by the FOA can be found here. We will respond to requests for information from members of the public, where the provision of information in response to such an enquiry does not adversely affect the ScreenSkills website or its stakeholders. This is entirely at the discretion of the ScreenSkills website, and we are in no way compelled by the FOA to respond to such requests. All Freedom of Information requests should be sent to Data Protection Officer(s) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
