This page explains what The Nicola’s School of Dance Ltd (NSOD) and the Charming Theatre Company (CHARM) does with the personal information you provide us.
In order to become a student of NSOD/CHARM you are required to tell us personal information about yourself. At the point of collecting the information we aim to clearly explain what it is going to be used for and who we may share it with. Unless required or permitted by law, we will always ask you before we use it for any other reason.
Any sensitive personal information will never be supplied to anyone outside NSOD/CHARM without first obtaining your consent, unless required or permitted by law. We comply with current Data Protection Legislation.
We do not share information with third parties for purposes that are incompatible, such as product marketing.
The legal basis for collecting the information
Most of the information is collected because it is necessary for your enrolment to NSOD/CHARM or is required by law. You must provide it in order to enrol at NSOD/CHARM.
Parents, carers, guardians and next of kin
For all students it is important that we have details of a contact in case of emergency as such you will be asked to provide details of a parent, carer, guardian or next of kin.
Under the proposed legislation GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), young people aged 16 and over can decide for themselves and give consent for the processing of their personal information. Parental consent is not required although there may be some exceptions.
NSOD/CHARM has found that it is very beneficial to the young person’s progress if we are able to engage with the parents (or guardian/carer). Therefore it is very important that we have the parents’ details recorded on our systems.
NSOD/CHARM are the data controller under Data Protection Legislation and the Directors are therefore ultimately responsible for implementation.
The designated data controller who is appointed to ensure compliance with the legislation is Edward Owen.
If you have any questions about Data Protection at NSOD/CHARM, please contact [email protected]
If you have a data protection concern that cannot or have not been resolved by NSOD/CHARM, you have the right to raise it with the Information Commissioner’s Office.
