Lifetime Training is committed to protecting your personal data. This policy explains how and why we use your personal data to make sure you remain informed and in control of your information.
Lifetime Training will ask its learners or potential learners to “opt-in” to receive information about our products and courses. This means you’ll have the choice as to whether you want to receive these messages.
You can choose not to receive information or change how we contact you at any time. If you would like to, please let us know by:

We will never sell your personal data. We may share personal data with other organisations who we work with to provide the service to you. However, these activities will will be carried out under contracts which have strict requirements to keep your information confidential and secure.
Any questions you have about this policy or how we use your personal data should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org or addressed to: The Data Protection Officer at the postal address given above.
Your personal data (i.e. any information which identifies you, or which can be identified as relating to you) will be collected and used by Lifetime Training which is a private limited company with Company No: 03263608 and data controller number Z5165342.
For the purposes of data protection law, Lifetime Training will be the Data Controller.
What information do we collect?
Personal data you give to us
We collect data you give to us. For example:
- Personal details (name, address, email, address, telephone, etc.) when you apply for a role
- Data known as sensitive personal data (ethnicity, additional learning needs)
Information created by your involvement with Lifetime Training
Your activities and involvement with Lifetime Training create additional personal data, for example, information about your education progress and qualifications.
We may analyse your personal data to build a profile which helps us decide which of our communications you might be interested in.
Sensitive personal data
We may collect or store data known as sensitive personal data (such as information relating to additional learning needs or ethnicity). We will do this where we have been asked to do so by official Government agencies or where the information is needed for the assessment of additional educational support needs.
If we do this, we’ll take extra care to ensure your personal data is protected.
Accidents or incidents
If an accident or incident occurs in one of our training centres or involving one of our employees then we’ll keep a record of this (which may include personal data and sensitive personal data).
How do we use personal information?
We only ever use your personal data with your consent, or where it is necessary:
- To enter into, or perform, a contract with you
- To comply with a legal duty
- To protect your vital interests; this means, for example, keeping you safe from harm
- For our own (or a third party's) lawful interests, provided your rights are not affected
We will only use your information for the purpose or purposes it was collected for.
We use personal data for administrative purposes. This includes:
- Maintaining databases of our learners, candidates, and employees
- Performing our obligations under apprenticeship or training contracts
- Helping us respect your choices and preferences (e.g. if you ask not to receive marketing material, we’ll keep a record of this).
We may combine sets of personal data and change the personal data so that it can no longer be linked to any particular person. This information may then be used to monitor Lifetime Training’s business performance or to identify trends or patterns within our existing learner database.
Disclosing and sharing data
We will never sell your personal data. If you have opted-in to marketing, we may contact you with information about further job opportunities.
We may share personal data with other organisations who provide us with services. For example, we may use an IT supplier to process personal data. However, these activities will be carried out under contracts which have strict requirements to keep your information confidential and secure.

Lifetime Training will ask its contacts to “opt-in” for marketing communications. This means you’ll have the choice as to whether you want to receive these messages.
As an education provider, we regularly process the personal data relating to young people who enquire about courses and training opportunities.
How do we protect personal data?
We use a variety of physical and technical methods to keep your data safe and to prevent unauthorised access or sharing of your personal information.
Electronic data and databases are stored on secure computer systems and we control who has access to information using both physical and electronic means.
Our employees receive data protection training and we have a set of detailed data protection procedures which personnel are required to follow when handling personal data.
Some of our premises have CCTV and you may be recorded when you visit them. CCTV is there to help provide security and to protect both you and Lifetime Training. CCTV will only be viewed when necessary (e.g. to detect or prevent crime) and footage is only stored temporarily. Unless it is flagged for review CCTV will be recorded over.
Lifetime Training complies with the Information Commissioner’s Office CCTV Code of Practice and we put up notices so you know when CCTV is in use.
Storage of personal data
Where Lifetime Training information is stored
Lifetime Training’s operations are based in the UK and we store our data primarily within the European Economic Area (EEA).
Lifetime Training will occasionally use services outside of the EEA to process personal data, but only where the service ensures an adequate level of protection and where appropriate safeguards have been provided.
How long does Lifetime Training Keep information for?
We will only use and store information for as long as it is needed for the purposes it was collected for. How long we keep information depends on the information and what it’s used for. For example, if you ask us not to send you marketing emails, we will stop storing your emails for marketing purposes (though we’ll keep a record of your preference not to be emailed).
We continually review what information we hold and delete what is no longer required. We never store payment card information.
How do we ensure that you remain in control of your data?
We want to ensure you remain in control of your personal data and that you understand your legal rights which include:
- The right to ask and be told whether or not we have your personal data and, if we do to obtain a copy of the personal data we hold (this is known as a subject access request)
- The right to have your data deleted (though this will not apply where it is necessary for us to continue to use the data to administer your training course or apprenticeship.
- The right to have incorrect data amended
- The right to object to your data being used for marketing purposes or profiling
Please note that there are some exceptions to the rights above and, although we will always try to respond to your satisfaction, there may be situations where we are unable to do so.
If you would like further information on your rights please write to or email our Data Protection Officer at the addresses given in section 1.
We can provide you with a subject access form template which includes guidance on how to make your request and will help us respond more quickly. Please contact us for a copy of this.
