This pertains to the sale of EaS PRFs and applies regardless of the commerce channel used for the sale.
We endeavour to ensure our PRFs are up to date and fit for purpose, however, we make no representations or warranties of any kind, express or implied, about the completeness, accuracy, reliability, suitability or availability with respect to the PRF or the information, products, services, or related graphics contained on any part of the form, for any purpose.

We take your privacy seriously and have a GDPR policy which is available on request. If we're contacted by a relevant authority who has a lawful and valid request for your information, we will always cooperate with that request.
We often need to collect data about you in order to provide the services which we offer. You can be assured that any data we collect from you is taken for a good reason (explained below) and won't be sold on. We'll only use your information in conjunction with the service we're providing, and we'll safely store the data for the length of time we're required to.
Personal data is collected in the following ways when engaging our services:

For insurance purposes, we are obliged to collect the details of all people who come into our care. We will collect the following data on our PRFs:
DOB & age
Information about medication/treatments being followed, allergies, previous medical history and injuries.
Patients will be provided with a copy of our completed PRF, or it will be given to the next clinician in the pathway for collation and disclosure post treatment. In the event that a minor is treated, the form will be handed to their parent, guardian, carer or other responsible adult.
Personal data is held in a locked filing cabinet, which is accessible by the team principal for a period of 7 years, or 7 years following the patients 18th birthday in the event of a minor. PRFs are also held electronically on a secure, encrypted, cloud based server indefinitely.
Personal details are collected when enquiring about our services

Personal details are collected when you train with us
We will collect your name, age, address and details of any learning needs you may have. This information is collected for insurance purposes and to ensure that we do everything we can to enable you to pass the assessment. We'll collect your name when booking a course and all other details on day 1 or in advance of the course. Your information will be held by the trainer for the duration of the course in a sealed folder. Once the course is completed, your information will be held along with all of the other course paperwork for a period of three years in a locked filing cabinet, which is accessible only by the heads of our training centre. We may use your name and email address to contact you soon before your certificate expires, to invite you to revalidate your qualification or attend the recommended refresher training.

If you do add an extra item to your basket, you will be charged for it.
Vouchers are valid for 3 months from the date of issue unless otherwise stated. Expired vouchers may no longer work on our website and may not be recognised when trying to redeem.
