What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When making a booking for a course, we need to collect your name, email and phone number. We may, from time to time, need to collect other data such as your hospital, year of training etc.
We collect this data to verify attendance and also to enable us to contact you if any changes are made to the booking (e.g. course cancellation).
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
