Our GDP Policy
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) is a regulation by which the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission intend to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union (EU). The GDPR aims primarily to give control back to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU. GDPR is all about empowering us as individuals to have more control over our data and how people use it and as a Ltd company, we want to make sure we take GDPR seriously.
What data do we hold?
We hold the names, addresses, email addresses provided to us by our teachers and additional information given by parents or carers, of children’s allergies, photo and video permission and emergency numbers.
What are the lawful bases on which we “store” and “process” your data?
We store your data because there is “legitimate interest” in being able to record your details in order to keep in contact with teachers, and to ensure the best safeguarding practise for children in our care. We also send half termly emails with news of the past and current half terms, so that parents, carers and teachers understand what the children will be learning. Occasionally these emails may contain offers, top tips, new features and so on but they are primarily an essential support material for parents/carers with children in the classes or who have expressed an interest in joining. The emails are clearly marked with un unsubscribe button and are only sent to those who have contacted Les Puces in the first instance.
We do not share details with any other company outside of the Les Puces network. If you have contacted head office from an area run by a franchisee then the information is shared with the franchisee so that you have a local contact and information. The newsletters are sent direct from head office.
You have the right to ask for a copy of information we hold on you and ask for it to be amended or deleted. If deleted, it will be removed from our main database, but held on another list as we have to keep a record of who has chosen not to hear from us.
Will will ensure that your data is kept private and only used by relevant people to carry out our activities. We do not access the information on public wifi systems and we do everything we can to keep the information safe. We do not share this information with any organisation.
