What is a cookie and why are they used by Life Saving Training?
Cookies are small files of letters or numbers downloaded on to a device when users access websites. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide service information to the owners of the site. Cookies can be grouped into three categories: “session”, “persistent” and “first and third party”
Session cookies (Temporary)
These are temporary cookie files, which are erased when you close your browser. When you restart your website browser and go back to the site that created the cookie, the website will not recognise you.
Persistent cookies (Permanent)
These files stay in one of your website browser's subfolders until you delete them manually or your browser deletes them based on the duration period contained within the persistent cookie's file.
First and Third Party cookies
Whether a cookie is ‘first’ or ‘third’ party refers to the website or domain placing the cookie. First party cookies are cookies set by a website visited by the user. Third-party cookies are created by a website other than the one you are currently visiting; for example, the Google analytics cookies placed on this website are third party which measure how many website visitors we receive.
Cookies are not spyware or viruses and they can't read information from a computer. Neither are cookies the source for pop-ups or spam. They cannot be executed as code and are therefore incapable of transmitting computer viruses.

Legal Bases for collecting Personal Information at Life Saving Training:
Website and Email Bookings on our Website (Legal Basis of Contract - an exchange of services for money): If you book a course with us on our website or via email, we only collect the information you provide such as your name, address, email address and address for course delivery if booking an in-house course. Our site is SSL Certificate protected, meaning your data is transferred from your server to ours securely.
If booking on the website, you can choose to checkout as a guest and do not have to create a login. If you decide to create a user login for our site, your details are securely stored within our website administration and not shared with anyone else. We do not take payments directly through our site, therefore we never see your card details. You can either choose to pay securely via PayPal, or make an online bank transfer using your own Online Banking login.
Website Enquiries (Legal Basis of Contract - exchange of information to provide a quote): If you send an enquiry via our website or call us to find out more about our services and request a quote, we need to collect certain data from you in order to meet this request. We’ll ask for or clarify the number of people to be trained, the location for the training if it’s to be in-house and other relevant information such as the business or industry you work in. We will seek consent to keep in touch via a follow up email or phone call to discuss any further queries you may have.
Awarding of Certificates (Legal Basis of Contract - to fulfil an obligation to you): In order to process your certificate and/or qualification, we need to collect your Name, Address, Date of Birth, Gender, Health Conditions which may require reasonable adjustments, Email Address, Phone Number, Signature, and Assessment Decisions (based on your ability to perform the required skills in order to receive the certificate).
As an accredited training provider, when delivering Ofqual regulated qualifications, we share personal information with the Awarding Organisation (ITC First). This is so you can receive your qualification certificates.
The information collected on the Candidate Registration Forms and Assessment Plan which are securely sent to the Awarding Organisation includes:
- Full Name
- Date of Birth
- National Identity and Ethnicity
- Special needs or reasonable adjustment required
- Unique Learner Number Consent
- Postal Address
- Email Address
- Phone Number
- Assessment Decisions
Please note that you do not have to provide all of the above information should you choose not to, however the more data you supply, the easier it is to process your qualification should there be any queries. You only have to provide your name and signature which will be verified at the beginning of a training session against an ID document such as a Passport or Driving Licence. Life Saving Training will collect Assessment Decisions also.
Life Saving Training upload course candidate data to the relevant part of the ITC First website. Data submitted is only visible to those who need it, using an individual unique user login and password. Original documents are scanned and securely sent to ITC First. Candidate data is retained for 5 years and then deleted.
ITC Candidate Registration Forms will also include specific opt in options for how ITC may use your data, such as to verify your course feedback.
For non regulated courses, Life Saving Training still collect the same data, however it is not shared with an Awarding Organisation. All data is scanned and stored on Dropbox, on password protected computers and all paper copies are securely shredded and destroyed.
