For purposes of this policy, “service” refers to Minding the Gap CPD's service which can be accessed via our website at www.mindingthegapcpd.weebly.com. The terms “we,” “us,” and “our” refer to Minding the Gap CPD. “You” refers to you, as a user of Service.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We may collect both “Non-Personal Data” and “Personal Data” about you. “Non-Personal Data” includes information that cannot be used to personally identify you, such as anonymous usage data, general demographic information we may collect, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, preferences you submit and preferences that are generated based on the data you submit and number of clicks. “Personal Data” includes information that can be used to personally identify you, such as your name, address and email address. We do not collect personal information via our website. Personal Information may be submitted to us using the downloadable booking forms which are completed and then emailed or posted to us. We only process any 'special category' data such as health and dietary requirements with your explicit consent.
In addition, we may also track information provided to us by your browser when you view or use the Service, such as the website you came from (known as the “referring URL”), the type of browser you use, the device from which you connected to the Service, the time and date of access, and other information that does not personally identify you. We use this information for, among other things, the operation of the Service, to maintain the quality of the Service, to provide general statistics regarding use of the Service and for other business purposes. We track this information using cookies, or small text files which include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to a user’s browser from our servers and are stored on the user’s computer hard drive. Sending a cookie to a user’s browser enables us to collect Non-Personal Information about that user and keep a record of the user’s preferences when utilising our services, both on an individual and aggregate basis. The Company may use both persistent and session cookies; persistent cookies remain on your computer after you close your session and until you delete them, while session cookies expire when you close your browser. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your Internet browser help file directions. If you choose to disable cookies, some areas of the Service may not work properly.

The personal data we collect is used to manage bookings and communicate with you about our events, training, consultancy and other services we may provide. It is also used to ensure we are able to meet any specific needs such as access requirements and dietary needs.
We do not share your Personal Information with third parties without your consent unless it is necessary as part of our contract with you or a legal requirement. We may share your Personal Information with vendors and other third-party providers who are performing services for us, for example, when you provide us with personal information when paying by bank transfer or send a cheque, or arrange for a delivery, or to send something to us, you consent to our collecting and using such personal information for that specific purpose.
We use a Gmail email account and MailChimp to manage our contact with you as well as communicating using Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. These and other third-party service providers, such as payment processors, have their own privacy policies and we recommend that you read these so that you can understand how they will use your data
