What personal information do we collect?

TA collects details about you as a school or parent/carer, including your name, address, contact number, email address and (if payment is not made online) bank or invoice details for payment.

TA also collects the following details about the child(ren) attending our masterclasses in order to deliver the masterclasses booked: the child's name, gender, year group, any special educational needs that may help our tutors support children, their dietary requirements and details about known medical conditions. We collect details about their school to help us evaluate our service and to organise future master classes in your area. We also collect information about medical conditions and the child's date of birth in case a medical emergency arises during the masterclass and emergency services need to be alerted.

Data Protection Law recognises that some categories of personal information are more sensitive. Sensitive Personal Information can include information about a person's health, race, ethnic origin, political opinions, sex life, sexual orientation or religious beliefs.

If a child attends a TA masterclass, you may choose to provide details of a sensitive nature as outlined above. We will only use this information for the purposes of supporting the child attending the masterclass. We will not pass on your details to anyone else without your express permission except in exceptional circumstances. Examples of this might include sharing information should a medical emergency arise.

How is your information used?

We use your information:

  • To communicate with you;
  • To confirm masterclass details and updates in relation to these;
  • For invoicing and payment purposes;
  • To improve our services and products with the feedback you provide.

In addition, with your permission, we will use your information to:

  • Inform you of news and updates in relation to forthcoming masterclasses;
  • Analyse overall traffic to the Tomorrow's Achievers website via the use of cookies and website analytics software.

When you complete and submit your booking form to Tomorrow's Achievers we will use the information you provide to contact you about the masterclasses you book with us. You may withdraw your consent at any time, but this may result in us not being able to continue to communicate with you in regard to your booking.

TA complies with its obligations by keeping personal data up to date; by storing and destroying it securely; by not collecting or retaining excessive amounts of data; by protecting personal data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access and disclosure and by ensuring that appropriate technical measures are in place to protect personal data.

We use your personal data for the purpose of delivering masterclasses, under article 6 of the GDPR. We'll only use your information where we are allowed to by law. For example, for carrying out an agreement we have with you. We collect this information in order to provide a smooth customer service and communications, for invoicing and payment purposes, and in order to send updates on the services and products you have purchased. This data also helps us improve the service and provide aggregated – unidentifiable - information for publication. Our request for the information outlined above allows TA to pursue its legitimate interest to provide you with a smooth and timely service, and to maintain security. It would be difficult to supply the services to you otherwise.

If you tick the box at the end of the booking form, you are giving us your consent to receive marketing updates about future TA masterclasses by email. You can opt out at any time using the link at the bottom of each email. This will not affect emails sent to you with details about the masterclass(es) you have booked with TA.

Who at TA will have access to your personal information?

Your data will be accessed by TA's staff and the wider Coram Group for the purposes of above and for the duration of your relationship with us.

Your data will also be accessed by the tutor(s) leading the masterclass you have booked, our email software provider (Microsoft Outlook), our web provider (Brown & Brown), and Coram's email servers for the purposes of communicating with you. If you have subscribed to our email updates, your name and email address will be held by our online email provider, CampaignMonitor. Online financial transactions are processed by our payment processors, Sage and WorldPay.

Survey and feedback data will be gathered anonymously and therefore your personal information will not be shared.

Where you interact with us through third parties such as online credit card processing companies (such as Sage and WorldPay), the data you provide will be subject to their privacy policies, which may not be consistent with those of the Coram Group. It is important that you reassure yourself that those third parties are handling your personal information appropriately. Please consult their privacy notices for more information.

Will TA share your information with anyone else?

We will not sell or rent any information you provide to us to third parties. Nor will we share your information with third parties for marketing purposes.

We will keep your information confidential except where disclosure is required or permitted by law (for example to government bodies and law enforcement agencies). Generally, we will only use your information within TA and Coram. However, sometimes TA uses third parties to process your information on our behalf. For example, Brown & Brown as our website developer, and Sage and Worldpay for online subscription payments. TA requires these third parties to comply strictly with its instructions and TA requires that they do not use your personal information for their own business purposes, unless you have explicitly consented to the use of your personal information in this way.
