Personal information may also be created as a result of our ongoing relationship with you.



We use the information you have given us in the following circumstances:

  • where we need to perform the contract we have entered into with you;

  • where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests.

We may also use your personal information in the following situations, which are likely to be rare:

  • where we need to protect your interests or someone else’s interests;

  • where it is needed in the public interest; and

  • where you have given your consent.


  1. Situations in which we will use your personal information

         We need all the categories of personal information described above primarily to allow us to:

*       perform our contract with you;

**    enable us to comply with our legal obligations; and

***  pursue legitimate interests of our own or those of third parties, provided your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests

The situations in which we will process your personal information are listed below.  We have indicated by asterisks from the above list the principal legal basis upon which we are processing or will process your personal information.  Please note, however, that some of the grounds for processing will overlap and there may be several grounds which justify our use of your personal information.  Where the legal basis of legitimate interests is applicable, we explain what these are in italics.

  • To establish and manage our relationship with you and to provide services to you (including with respect to the projects we run in which you participate). *

  • To carry out business operational and administrative activities (including record-keeping and audits) and to ensure security and business continuity. *

  • To carry out statistical and other analysis (including behavioural analysis). ***In order to manage our business and to provide the best services to you we need to understand and analyse their use by you.

  • To comply with the request or requirement of any court of any relevant jurisdiction or any relevant tribunal, mediator, arbitrator, ombudsman, taxation authority or regulatory or government authority. **

  • As is reasonably necessary to trace you, e.g. to trace debtors and enforce or seek to obtain settlement of amounts owing to us due to default of payment. ***We need to be able to recover monies that you owe to us which may require additional processing of your personal information, for example you have changed your address without telling us.

  • For use in connection with any legal proceedings (including prospective legal proceedings) and for obtaining legal advice or for establishing, exercising or defending legal rights. ***In order to protect our position in relation to legal proceedings we may need to analyse records including your personal information and share it with our professional advisors, third parties and the courts.



  1. Special category personal information

Data processing may include the processing of special category personal information about you.  Such special category personal information requires higher levels of protection.  We need to have further justification for collecting, storing and using this type of personal information, 

We may process special category personal information in the following circumstances:

  1. In limited circumstances, with your explicit written consent;

  2. Where we need to carry out our legal obligations and in line with our data protection policy; and

  3. Where it is needed in the public interest and in line with our data protection policy.

Less commonly, we may process this type of information where it is needed in relation to legal claims or where it is needed to protect your interests (or someone else’s interests) and you are not capable of giving your consent, or where you have already made the information public.

The most common processing of special category information by us occurs when:

  • you tell us you or your child, or a child over whom you have parental responsibility, is allergic to a particular foodstuff or hair product/ingredient



We may disclose personal information in the situations referred to above:

  • to Nurture Academy volunteers and/or any third parties who provide services to us or act as our agents (or prospective volunteers, prospective third-party service providers or prospective agents).  We will take all reasonable steps to ensure that such volunteers, third party service providers or agents are subject to appropriate data processing requirements;

  • to third parties in connection with a potential or actual reorganisation (including investment), amalgamation, merger or transfer or sale of all or part of our business, including to any insurers and professional advisors and any third parties to whom we assign, transfer or charge our interest in any product or service provided to you;

  • to any court of any relevant jurisdiction or any relevant tribunal, mediator, arbitrator, ombudsman or taxation authority or any regulatory authority and any party appointed or requested by them to carry out investigations or audits of our activities;

  • if we or any person to whom your information is disclosed have a right or duty to disclose it or are permitted (acting reasonably) or compelled by applicable laws and regulations to disclose it;

  • to debt collection agencies;

  • to our agents, auditors and professional advisors to enable them to process the information in the situations described above as a data processor on behalf of Nurture Academy and/or as a data controller and to enable them to perform their obligations;

  • to insurers; or

  • if you consent to such disclosure.

We will not sell or transfer your personal information to any third party for that party to use for direct marketing purposes without your prior consent
