ADDITIONAL PRIVACY STATEMENT FOR DRUM STUDENTS

I hold personal contact information as well as information about each student’s drum education, e.g., progress, objectives, exam results and tracking against goals. I only hold the data needed to offer you the services you engage me to provide. 

 Contact information is used for scheduling, invoicing, record keeping and communicating my services with my students.

Some information will be shared with examination boards if you wish to enter for exams, for example Dates of Birth, which are needed for exam entries. Exam results ( the students name and mark) maybe be published on the website.

No other data will be shared unless there is a legal obligation to do so.

All reasonable steps are taken to ensure your data is processed and stored securely such as password protected digital means and cloud services (e.g. google drive)

Your data is stored for as long as you are a student with Leicester Drum School and will be deleted if tuition discontinues.

If you wish to change or delete the information I hold about you, or if you have any concerns about your data, please contact me directly on richard [at] leicesterdrumschool.co.uk
