When and Why we collect personal data
Types of data we collect
When someone visits the Global Symbols site we use Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way, which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.
As part of the registration process for courses and downloading resources, we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records for numbers of users and to deliver certificates. We may email you with important updates or changes to the service. We don’t rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.
If we create a newsletter or blog that we wish to send out via email we may use a third-party provider, MailChimp. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice.
Keeping data secure
All information is kept secure on servers that are based in the United Kingdom.

Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) you are entitled to view, amend, or delete the personal information that we hold. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org in order to request changes.
