We collect information about you when you provide it to us. For example, when you fill out our online forms, subscribe to one of our services, respond to one of our competitions or promotions, enquire about or order products or services from us, post something on our Website, or when you contact us by telephone or in person, or on paper.

We also collect information indirectly from you, from the device you may be using when you interact with one of our Services. This can include your geographic location, which for example may be required to provide services to you that have copyright restrictions. We may also collect information from cookies placed on your computer or your device as described in the Cookies section below.

When you participate in any Synchronous learning session – including a revision class,  lecture, seminar, tutorial or other interactive teaching session, it may be recorded. We reserve the right to display any content - audio content, video content, whiteboard postings, figures, datasets and media -  you submit whilst participating in any of our online learning services indefinitely in any relevant context subject to our judgement.  

 

Social login 

 

If you log in to our Website or Services through a third party site, such as Facebook, that site may pass information to us, such as, user ID, name associated with the ID, email address and location, plus other information permitted under the privacy policy for that website. Our Website or Services may also return information about you to that social networking site regarding your login. 

 

Posts, comments and interaction 

 

When you enter into a conversation with us, for example through the use of polls, comments, email, phone, or letters we reserve the right to display this content indefinitely in any relevant context subject to our judgement. This may be anonymised in the case of testimonials or customer service conversations. 

 

Public information and posts 

 

Any information about yourself or others that you submit on our public social media sites, including chat rooms, blogs and forums, will be viewed by other people. As such, this personal data may be viewed, collected and used by third parties, including search engines, over which we have no control. We are not responsible for either the information you submit/post or otherwise make available in such public areas or any use that may be made of such information by any third party. 

 

Other sources 

 

We may also obtain information about you from other organisations or companies that have your permission to share information about you, including schools,  business partners, sub-contractors in technical, payment and delivery services, advertising networks, analytics providers, search information providers, as well as from other online and offline sources. We may combine this information with information we collect directly or indirectly from you. 

 

Information about other people 

 

By giving us information about another person, you confirm that they have appointed you to act for them, or given you consent to provide us with their information, including sensitive personal data, and to the transfer of their information abroad (e.g. to a server not in the UK) and to receive on their behalf any data protection notices. 

How we use and share your information 

 

Deliver services, improve experience and personalisation 

 

We will use your information to provide you with the requested content, products and services, to provide a greater personalised experience and to manage our relationship with you, including allowing you to interact, comment, and participate in online learning and our other services. We may use your information to monitor and improve and protect our products, content, services and websites. We may also provide you with help and support where we believe it is required. For example, we may contact you where an order is not completed, if you have provided your information. 

 

The content on our websites and in our communications with you may be adjusted depending on what we know about the content, products and services that you may like. This means we can highlight content and articles that we believe will be of interest to you. We provide personalisation by using cookies, IP addresses, web beacons, URL tracking and app settings. See the Cookies section of this page for more information. 

 

Research and analytics 

 

We may use your information to conduct research related to the services we offer and to develop new products and services. 

 

Relevant communications 

 

We may use your information to send you newsletters, service announcements and other information about your chosen services. For some membership levels it is possible to opt out of these communications.  

 

Direct marketing 

 

This may include communications by post, telephone, email and messages to your mobile phone and through social media (such as Facebook and Twitter) about us and our business partners’ products and services, events and offers, including for a reasonable time after you may have ceased a subscription or service with us. 

 

Sharing with third parties 

 

We may pass your information to suppliers we use to provide services that involve using data on our behalf, for example for delivery services or market research agencies. We may also use suppliers to collect your information on our behalf but the use of your information will still be subject to this Policy. 

 

We will only disclose your information to third party companies for their purposes, including marketing, when we have your permission to do so. For example, if we run a competition, the partner providing the prize may want to send entrants information about their products. 

 

To provide co-branded services and features 

 

We may offer co-branded services or features, such as competitions or other promotions, together with a third party and may share the information you provide with that third party. These co-branded services may be hosted by us or by the third party. The third party’s use of your information will be governed by their privacy policy, which you should always read. 

 

Linked services 

 

Our services may be linked to websites operated by third party companies, and may carry advertisements or offer content, functionality, games, newsletters, contests, sweepstakes, or applications developed and maintained by unaffiliated companies. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of unaffiliated companies, and once you leave the services or click an advertisement you should check the applicable privacy policy of the other service. 

 

Allowing social sharing functionality 

 

By logging in with or connecting your account with social media, you are permitting us to share information we collect from and about you with that social media provider, other users and your friends, and you understand that the social media service’s use of the shared information will be governed by the social media service’s privacy policy. If you do not want your personal information shared in this way, please do not connect your social media service account with your account, and do not participate in social sharing on our websites or apps. 

 

Disclosures required by law 

 

Your personal information will be disclosed where we are obliged by law to do so. We may also disclose your personal information where we are allowed by law to protect or enforce our rights or the rights of others and for the detection and prevention of crimes, such as fraud. 

 

Acceptable use of services 

 

If you post or send offensive or objectionable content anywhere on or to any of our websites or apps, or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour on any of our websites or apps, we may use the information that is available to us about you to stop such behaviour. This may involve informing relevant third parties such as your school, employer and law enforcement agencies about the content and your behaviour. 

 

Sale of our business 

 

If we sell part or all of our business, customer information may be one of the transferred business assets. If this happens, your information may be disclosed to any successors of our business for them to use for the purposes set out in this Policy. 

 

Payment  

 

Customer information will be used to take payment for products and services and may be used to verify credit details related to this payment. Permission to do so is implicit in providing financial details to process payment. Direct debit information may be retained for ease of renewal of services. 

Data Transfers 

 
When you complete our registration forms or use our services, we may transfer your information to processors outside the European Economic Area but will do so with appropriate measures and controls in place to protect that information in accordance with applicable data protection legislation. 

 

When you give us information about another person, you confirm that they have appointed you to act for them and agreed to the transfer of their information abroad. 

 

How we protect personal information 

 

We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect Your Information against loss, misuse or unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of Your password and other Website registration information at all times. 

User Access and Control 

 

Updating your information 

 

Please ensure you update your personal information or tell us if it changes or is inaccurate. You can update your details, for example your email address, through the “My Account” or an equivalent section if you are a subscriber. You may also email our Member Services team at info@raymondson.org 

 

Controlling direct marketing 

 

You can change your mind about receiving direct marketing from us by following the unsubscribe instructions in the communication. 

 

Controlling other communications 

 

You also understand and agree that the Service may include certain communications from Raymondson such as service announcements, administrative messages, other membership messages and our newsletter and that these communications are considered part of a Raymondson membership and you will not be able to opt out of receiving them.  

If appropriate for your subscription, you will be able to control communications you receive by following the unsubscribe instructions in the communication. You may still receive other communications that are relevant to your chosen services but do not relate to that specific type of communication. Where this is the case, you will be able to unsubscribe from these communications in the same way. 

 

Requesting copies of your personal information 

 

You may request a copy of any personal information Raymondson may hold about you (for which we may charge a small processing fee). You can also ask us to correct any inaccuracies in your personal information (which is free). 

 

Retention of personal information 

 

We will retain your information for as long as necessary for the uses set out in this Policy. If you ask us to delete your information before that time, we may not be able to do so, due to technical, legal, regulatory and contractual constraints. For example, we would need to retain your name and contact details for suppression purposes if you do not want to receive direct marketing from us. 

 

If you ask for your account to be closed, we will do this as soon as is reasonably possible subject to any applicable terms and conditions relating to the account. Personal information from closed accounts is retained in order to comply with legal obligations, prevent fraud, collect any fees owed or to resolve disputes. 

 

If we withdraw a product or service, such as an online forum, we may either archive or delete the information you have provided to it.
