We do not link the information we store within the analytics software to any personally identifiable information that you submit. All analytical data is anonymous.

We may also collect public information in order to connect with you. We may use that information as part of providing our Services to you.

 

What we do with the information we gather

GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) means we must obtain freely given, specific, informed, and unambiguous consent from our students and/or their parent/guardian and website visitors. We must also clearly explain how we plan to use this personal data.

We require this information to understand the students and parent/guardian needs, and to provide you with a better service, and in particular for the following reasons:

  • Internal record keeping.

  • We may use the information to improve our products and services.

  • We may periodically send promotional emails about our programme, special offers or other information which we think you may find interesting using the email address which you have provided. You must consent to this by signing up to our mailing list or expressing your wish in writing/electronically via email.

  • From time to time, we may also use your information to contact you for feedback or market research purposes via email. We may use the information to review and update our website according to your feedback.

The Summer Fashion School London may send you messages about our Services. Some of these messages are required, service-related messages for students/parents/guardians (such as legal notices or important programme information). Other messages are not required, such as newsletters and promotional messages. You can control which optional messages you choose to receive by updating your preferences on MailChimp.

 

Security

We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and after it is received. If you have any questions about the security of your personal information, you can contact us at info@summerfashionschool.com.

The Summer Fashion School London encrypts personal information sent to us online using full-site secure socket layer technology (SSL). Unfortunately, no method of transmission over the internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. Therefore, while we attempt to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

 

How we use cookies

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about webpage traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of our website.

 

Links to other websites

Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.

 

Information disclosure

When you access or use our Services and website, we collect, use, share, and otherwise process your personal information as described in this policy. We rely on a number of legal bases to use your information in these ways. These legal bases include where:

  • necessary to perform the contractual obligations in our Privacy Policy and in order to provide our Services to you;

  • you have consented to the processing, which you can revoke at any time;

  • necessary to comply with a legal obligation, a court order, or to exercise or defend legal claims;

  • necessary for the purposes of our or a third party’s legitimate interests, such as those of visitors;

  • you have expressly made the information public;

  • necessary in the public interest; and

  • occasionally necessary to protect your vital interests, or those of others.

Note that we principally rely on consent (i) to send marketing messages, (ii) for third-party data sharing related to advertising, and, to the extent applicable, (iii) for the use of location data for advertising purposes.

 

Information retention

The Summer Fashion School London will only retain your information for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this policy, for as long as you use our Services. If you no longer want The Summer Fashion School London to use your information to provide our Services to you, you may request the deletion of your information by writing to or emailing us. The Summer Fashion School London will retain and use your information to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, enforce our agreements, and as otherwise described in this policy. We also retain log files for internal analysis purposes. These log files are generally retained for a brief period of time, except in cases where they are used for site safety and security, to improve site functionality, or we are legally obligated to retain them for longer time periods.

 

Controlling your personal information

We value your privacy and know that having control over your own information is important, therefore you may choose to provide, edit or remove certain information, as well as providing you with a choice on how we contact you.
