Online Cookies/Privacy and GDPR Policy Online Cookies/Privacy and GDPR Policy
As a Data Processor, Karen Blake Coaching Ltd also known as Karen Blake Academy (KBA) is committed to protecting and respecting the security and integrity of your personal data in line with GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). We collect information only which we can justify as reasonable and justifiable for the provision and communication of KBA-related products and services as detailed on our marketing website.

GDPR
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) marks a step change for data protection and replaces the Data Protection Directive on 25 May 2018. GDPR simplifies and clarifies rules and strengthens citizens’ rights in relation to their personal data. The GDPR abolishes the single country data protection acts and combines the data protection for all EU member states. When the UK leaves the EU, it will become an approved country and GDPR will continue to form part of UK law.

This policy sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be processed by us. Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal data and how we will treat it.

  1. Information we may collect from you

We may collect and process the following data about you:

  1. IP Addresses and Cookies

We may collect information about your computer, including (where available) your IP address, operating system, and browser type, for system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers. This is statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns and does not identify any individual.

For the same reason, we may obtain information about your general internet usage by using a cookie file which is stored on the hard drive of your computer. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive.

You may refuse to accept cookies by activating the setting on your browser which allows you to refuse the setting of cookies. However, if you select this setting you may be unable to access certain parts of the Site. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies when you log on to the Site.

Please note that our advertisers may also use cookies, over which we have no control.

  1. Where we store your personal data

KBA will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with the GDPR.
Your personal data is stored within the EU, will not be transferred outside the EU. Your learners’ and users’ data are kept securely on your own password-protected database and will not be used for any purpose other than the delivery of online learning through your KBA account.

Where you have been given (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of the Site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to the Site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

  1. Uses made from the information

KBA will use personal information only to provide you with services relating to the Site. Personal information will not be passed to third parties.
We use information held about you in the following ways:

  1. Retention of your information

The personal data that we collect shall be kept for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which it is being processed. Should your KBA account remain unused for a period of two years, or you request removal of your personal data without KBA having legal grounds to object, then your personal information will be scheduled for deletion.
Data scheduled for deletion will be moved to a secure, encrypted ‘vault’ for no more than three years, before being permanently removed from all KBA servers and backups.

  1. Disclosure of your information

We may disclose your personal information to third parties if we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply our Terms of Use and other agreements; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of KBA, our customers, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
