Cheshire therapy centre asks you for personal data to complete the online application forms so we can contact you to arrange interviews for the course you have applied for.

If you are offered a place on one of our course then you will be asked to complete an enrolment form which contains personal and sensitive information. What you write here will be shared at registration with our appropriate awarding body. I will also share information if there is a lawful legitimate reason to do so such as to protect you or others from harm or if this is in the public interest to do so as in serious crime.

If you enrol on our course then information about you will be stored either electronically or in paper handwritten form in locked filing storage.

Applications we receive that do not move forward to be registered with us will be shredded and destroyed within a 6-month period. Once you are registered then all records will be maintained as above. Records are then kept in line with legitimate requirements for a period of 1 to 3 years following completion of your course. The exception to this is the right to retain data for any known public interest purposes (such as serious crime) or defence of a complaint or legal claim against us.   After this time, all records are shredded or deleted if held electronically.
