What type of information we have
Medisafe Training collects your name, date of birth, phone number and email address for the purposes of administrating, awarding or certificating the qualification or course you have chosen to undertake.

We also collect and/or receive names of Companies. City, County, Postcode, Course required, Number of course attendees. We may also collect financial and/or bank details for the purpose of making refunds or other payments whenever applicable.
Where we need to collect your personal information by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you or trying to have with you and you do not provide that information when we request it then we may not be able to proceed or complete the contract and therefore we may have to cancel a product or service you have with us or are trying to have with us but we will inform you at the time.
How we get the information and why we do we have it
We may collect your personal data and special category data about you when you provide this information by filling in the contact form on our website, within course paperwork/documentation during course delivery or via face to face conversation, telephone, email, text, documentation, previous certification or any other written correspondence with yourself, course organiser, work manager or the employer.
Medisafe Training will process your personal data, and special category data (for the purpose of reasonable adjustments), in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and any regulatory requirements as specified by Regulatory Bodies.
What we do with the information
All personal data is processed and stored securely. We do not keep your personal data for longer than it is necessary for the reason it was first collected. Your personal data will be deleted as soon as the purpose for which it was collected has been completed. However, sometimes due to any legal or regulatory obligation may need to keep it longer than that but we will delete it soon as this obligation has been fulfilled.
We will only process your data where we have a legal basis under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to do so. Most commonly, we will use your personal data where we need to perform the contract we are about to enter into or have entered into with you, where it is necessary for our legitimate interests or those of a third party and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests and/or where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.
We use information held about you to ensure that content from our site is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer, to provide you with information, products or services that you request from us or which we feel may interest you, where you have consented to be contacted for such purposes, to carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us and to notify you about changes to our service.
