What information do we collect?
We collect information about schools (school type, age range, address, phone number and general email address).
For individual teachers, we record your school, your name and job title, the subject/s you teach, your school email, any special area of responsibility such as STEM or Enrichment, and your booking history. We record this data when you fill in forms on our website (to receive updates about our study days or to make a booking), contact us by email or phone (for bookings or booking amendments), or when you fill in the request for updates on the feedback forms handed out to teachers at every Education in Action study day.
How do we use this information?
We store your data to help ensure that you only receive relevant information and updates for our study days for the subjects you teach or for which you are responsible i.e. Maths teachers receive information about Maths study days. Education in Action will only process the information necessary for the purpose for which it was collected.
There are various ways in which we may process your personal information.
You have opted to receive regular updates about our study days by using the register for updates option on the website or the subscribe option available via Mailchimp, the organisation we use to send our marketing communications.
We will contact you initially to let you know the dates of our upcoming study days so that these may be entered in the school calendar in good time for the required school organisational procedures.
We will provide updates about the latest speaker and topic information as they are announced to help you make a more informed decision about attending.
We will also advise you of any special promotional options that may be available from time to time.
You are welcome to withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us or by using the unsubscribe option available on each communication.
If you have made a booking, then we will process your information for booking amendments, confirmations, invoices and tickets. In addition, we may also send you information about the venue such as maps, local parking and a risk assessment. This also applies to processing information for the speakers we appoint.
Education in Action may use and process your personal information as set out below to carry out activities for which it is in our legitimate interests as a business to do so.
To respond to any correspondence you may send to us (bookings, booking amendments, general queries).

How long do we keep your information for?
We endeavour to hold your data only as long as is necessary or until you decide that you are no longer happy for us to process your data.
Where possible we check school and college staff lists to make sure we have current information. We are, however, very grateful to teachers who let us know when they are moving on to a new school or college so we can ensure that our data is accurate.
