Privacy Notice  

This is the privacy notice of Loftus Training Solutions. In this document, “we”, “our”,  or “us” refer to Loftus Training Solutions.  

We are company number 22864 72469 registered in the UK.  

Our registered office is at Magnolia House, 28 Eggington Road, Stourbridge. 



This privacy notice aims to inform you about how we collect and process any  information that we collect from you, or that you provide to us. It covers information  that could identify you (“personal information”) and information that could not. In the  context of the law and this notice, “process” means collect, store, transfer, use or  otherwise act on information. It tells you about your privacy rights and how the law  protects you.  

We are committed to protecting your privacy and the confidentiality of your personal  information. Our policy is not just an exercise in complying with the law, but a  continuation of our respect for you and your personal information.  

We undertake to preserve the confidentiality of all information you provide to us, and  hope that you reciprocate.  

Our policy complies with the Data Protection Act 2018 (Act) accordingly  incorporating the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).  

The law requires us to tell you about your rights and our obligations to you regarding  the processing and control of your personal data. We do this now, by requesting that  you read the information provided at  

Except as set out below, we do not share, or sell, or disclose to a third party, any  information collected through our website.  

  1. Data we process  

We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about  you. We have collated these into groups as follows:  

Your identity includes information such as first name, last name, title, date of  birth, and other identifiers that you may have provided at some time.  

Your contact information includes information such as billing address, delivery  address, email address, telephone numbers and any other information you  have given to us for the purpose of communication or meeting.  

Your financial data includes information such as your bank account and  payment card details.  

Transaction data includes details about payments or communications to and  from you and information about products and services you have purchased  from us. 


Technical data includes your internet protocol (IP) address, browser type and  version, time zone setting and location, browser plug-in types and versions,  operating system and platform and other technology on the devices you use  to access this website.  

Your profile includes information such as your username and password,  purchases or orders made by you, your interests, preferences, feedback and  survey responses.  

Marketing data includes your preferences in receiving marketing from us;  communication preferences; responses and actions in relation to your use of  our services.  

We may aggregate anonymous data such as statistical or demographic data  for any purpose. Anonymous data is data that does not identify you as an  individual. Aggregated data may be derived from your personal data but is not  considered personal information in law because it does not reveal your  identity.  

For example, we may aggregate profile data to assess interest in a product or  service.  

However, if we combine or connect aggregated data with your personal  information so that it can identify you in any way, we treat the combined data  as personal information and it will be used in accordance with this privacy  notice.  

  1. Special personal information  

Special personal information is data about your race or ethnicity, religious or  philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union  membership, information about your health and genetic and biometric data. It  also includes information about criminal convictions and offences. We do not  collect any special personal information about you.  

  1. If you do not provide personal information we need  

Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a  contract we have with you, and you fail to provide that data when requested,  we may not be able to perform that contract. In that case, we may have to  stop providing a service to you. If so, we will notify you of this at the time. 


The bases on which we process information about you  

The law requires us to determine under which of six defined bases we process  different categories of your personal information, and to notify you of the basis for  each category.  

If a basis on which we process your personal information is no longer relevant then  we shall immediately stop processing your data.  

If the basis changes then if required by law we shall notify you of the change and of  any new basis under which we have determined that we can continue to process  your information.  

  1. Information we process because we have a  contractual obligation with you  

When you create an account on our website, buy a product or service from  us, or otherwise agree to our terms and conditions, a contract is formed  between you and us.  

To carry out our obligations under that contract we must process the  information you give us. Some of this information may be personal  information.  

We may use it in order to:  

– verify your identity for security purposes  

– sell products to you  

– provide you with our services  

– provide you with suggestions and advice on products, services and  how to obtain the most from using our website  

We process this information on the basis there is a contract between us, or  that you have requested we use the information before we enter into a legal  contract.  

We shall continue to process this information until the contract between us  ends or is terminated by either party under the terms of the contract.  

  1. Information we process with your consent 


Through certain actions when otherwise there is no contractual relationship  between us, such as when you browse our website or ask us to provide you  more information about our business, including our products and services,  you provide your consent to us to process information that may be personal  information.  

Wherever possible, we aim to obtain your explicit consent to process this  information, for example, by asking you to agree to our use of cookies.  

If you have given us explicit permission to do so, we may from time to time  pass your name and contact information to selected associates whom we  consider may provide services or products you would find useful.  

We continue to process your information on this basis until you withdraw your  consent, or it can be reasonably assumed that your consent no longer exists.  

You may withdraw your consent at any time by instructing us at However, if you do so, you may not be able to use  our website or our services further.  

  1. Information we process for the purposes of legitimate  interests  

We may process information on the basis there is a legitimate interest, either  to you or to us, of doing so.  

Where we process your information on this basis, we do after having  considered:  

  • whether the same objective could be achieved through other means  – whether processing (or not processing) might cause you harm  

– whether you would expect us to process your data, and whether you  would, in the round, consider it reasonable to do so  

For example, we may process your data on this basis for the purposes of:  

– record-keeping for the proper and necessary administration of our  business  

– responding to unsolicited communication from you to which we believe  you would expect a response  

– protecting and asserting the legal rights of any party 

 – insuring against or obtaining professional advice that is required to  manage business risk  

– protecting your interests where we believe we have a duty to do so  

  1. Information we process because we have a legal obligation  

Sometimes, we must process your information to comply with a statutory  obligation.  

For example, we may be required to give information to legal authorities if  they so request or if they have the proper authorisation such as a search  warrant or court order.  

This may include your personal information.  

Specific uses of information you provide to us  

  1. Information provided on the understanding that it will  be shared with a third party  

Our website allows you to post information with a view to that information  being read, copied, downloaded, or used by other people.  

Examples include:  

– posting a message on our forum  

– tagging an image  

– clicking on an icon next to another visitor’s message to convey your  agreement, disagreement or thanks  

In posting personal information, it is up to you to satisfy yourself about the  privacy level of every person who might use it.  

We do not specifically use this information except to allow it to be displayed or  shared. 


We do store it, and we reserve a right to use it in the future in any way we  decide.  

Once your information enters the public domain, we have no control over what  any individual third party may do with it. We accept no responsibility for their  actions at any time.  

Provided your request is reasonable and there is no legal basis for us to retain  it, then at our discretion we may agree to your request to delete personal  information that you have posted. You can make a request by contacting us at  

  1. Complaints regarding content on our website  

Our website is a publishing medium. Anyone may register and then publish  information about himself, herself or some other person.  

We attempt to moderate user generated content, but we are not always able  to do so as soon as that content is published.  

If you complain about any of the content on our website, we shall investigate  your complaint.  

If we feel it is justified or if we believe the law requires us to do so, we shall  remove the content while we investigate.  

Free speech is a fundamental right, so we have to make a judgment as to  whose right will be obstructed: yours, or that of the person who posted the  content that offends you.  

If we think your complaint is vexatious or without any basis, we shall not  correspond with you about it.  

  1. Information relating to your method of payment  

Payment information is never taken by us or transferred to us either through  our website or otherwise. Our employees and contractors never have access  to it.  

At the point of payment, you are transferred to a secure page on the website  of PayPal or some other reputable payment service provider. That page may  be branded to look like a page on our website, but it is not controlled by us.

If you send us information in connection with a job application, we may keep it  for up to three years in case we decide to contact you later.  

If we employ you, we collect information about you and your work from time to  time throughout the period of your employment. This information will be used  only for purposes directly relevant to your employment. After your  employment has ended, we will keep your file for six years before destroying  or deleting it.  

  1. Communicating with us

We keep personally identifiable information associated with your message,  such as your name and email address so as to be able to track our  communications with you to provide a high quality service.  

  1. Complaining  

When we receive a complaint, we record all the information you have given to  us.  

We use that information to resolve your complaint.  

If your complaint reasonably requires us to contact some other person, we  may decide to give to that other person some of the information contained in  your complaint. We do this as infrequently as possible, but it is a matter for  our sole discretion as to whether we do give information, and if we do, what  that information is.  

We may also compile statistics showing information obtained from this source  to assess the level of service we provide, but not in a way that could identify  you or any other person.
