Enabling Enterprise General Privacy Notice

We take your privacy very seriously and we ask that you read this privacy notice carefully as it contains important information on who we are, how and why we collect, store, use and share personal information, your rights in relation to your personal information and on how to contact us and supervisory authorities in the event you have a complaint.

Who we are

Enabling Enterprise Community Interest Company collects, uses and is responsible for certain personal information about you. When we do so we are regulated under the General Data Protection Regulation which applies across the European Union (including in the United Kingdom) and we are responsible as ‘controller’ of that personal information for the purposes of those laws.

The personal information we collect and use

In the course of providing resources, content and tools through this online platform (the Skills Builder Hub) that support the learning of essential skills we collect the following personal information when you or your employer provide it to us:

  • Names, email addresses and employer organisation name

How we use your personal information

We use your contact information to:

  • Contact you about the functionality and your use of the Skills Builder Hub
  • Allow you access to educational resources and tools through the Skills Builder Hub
  • If you are part of a member organisation, allow your administrator to assign you permissions
  • Send you information about essential skills and marketing materials for our services (if you have opted-in to this)

Who we share your personal information with

We share your name, email address, resource use and class assessment data with administrators for your organisation, if applicable. This data sharing ensures you are able to use the correct resources and that the platform can have the most impact for your organisation.

We will share personal information with law enforcement or other authorities if required by applicable law.

We will not share your personal information with any other third party without your express consent.

Whether information has to be provided by you, and if so why

The provision of names and email addresses is required from you to enable us to deliver our resources, content and tools.

How long your personal data will be kept

  • We will hold names and email addresses as long as you are a user of our services or your organisation could legitimately benefit from information about our services.

Reasons we can collect and use your personal information

We rely on legitimate interest as the lawful basis on which we collect and use your personal data. Our legitimate interests are the provision of services and resources for the improvement of skills education and learning for the public benefit. As a Community Interest Company, this is our social purpose.

Transfer of your information out of the EEA

We may transfer your personal information to the following which are located outside the European Economic Area (EEA) as follows:

  • Amazon Web Services, United States

  • Google, United States
  • Wufoo / SurveyMonkey, United States
  • Dropbox, United States
  • Zapier, United States

Such countries do not have the same data protection laws as the United Kingdom and EEA. Whilst the European Commission has not given a formal decision that such countries provide an adequate level of data protection similar to those which apply in the United Kingdom and EEA, any transfer of your personal information will be subject to either: a European Commission approved contract; binding corporate rules; compliance with an approved code of conduct approved by a supervisory authority; or certification under an approved certification mechanism as provided for in the GDPR (as permitted under Articles 46(2) & 46(3) of the General Data Protection Regulation that are designed to help safeguard your privacy rights and give you remedies in the unlikely event of a misuse of your personal information). To obtain a copy of such safeguards please follow the guidance below to contact us.

If you would like further information please contact us (see ‘How to contact us’ below). We will not otherwise transfer your personal data outside of the EEA or to any organisation (or subordinate bodies) governed by public international law or which is set up under any agreement between two or more countries.

Keeping your personal information secure

We have appropriate security measures in place to prevent personal information from being accidentally lost, or used or accessed in an unauthorised way. We limit access to your personal information to those who have a genuine business need to know it. Those processing your information will do so only in an authorised manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

How to complain
