We provide a contact form on our website that you can use to send us any queries or enquiries that you may have. The following personal details must be provided when using this form: name, email and your message. This is so that we know who has sent us the enquiry and how to answer it appropriately. The personal data we collect from your use of these contact forms will be erased automatically after handling of the query or enquiry has been completed.

Occasionally, forms other than contact forms, are displayed on our website mainly in the blog posts and upcoming event section. The purpose of these online forms are to gather expressions of interest for upcoming events/webinars/activities, selecting preferences for breakout rooms etc. The possession of such preference information assists with the event logistics and allows for the provision of tailored support needs at these events. The personal data we collect from this type of form will be erased automatically once the event has occurred.

Other forms are in a quiz format for educational and training reasons and no personal data other than an optional name field will be requested. Depending on the subject matter, information gathered from quiz forms may be collated to form backup evidence as part of a student/learner’s collection of work. This exported data will then adhere to CDETB QA guidelines on student data retention. The original data from quiz forms will be automatically deleted once transfer has been completed. The CRC Adult website will never request payment details or medical history in any forms. Certain forms may have reCAPCHA functionality enclosed within the form to prevent targeting from spambots.

All of the above mentioned forms which are to found throughout this website, have a checkbox field which gives the ability to get opt-in consent from users prior to data collection. GDPR opt-in policies require that a user must actively give their consent in order for that consent to be valid. To prove that we’ve collected consent for an individual, timestamps of form submissions with the exact date and time will be recorded so that we can tie a person’s data to the correct version of the form used to capture their information.

Going forward, and in line with new GDPR law guiding online form usage, each newly created form will have a mandatory description field which will outline how we’re planning to use the information and will also display a visible link to our privacy policy.
For the purpose of the Data Protection Acts 2018 (the DPA) and General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (the GDPR): Central Remedial Clinic (CRC) is a Data Controller as a service provider.
