We take your privacy seriously and want you to understand our practices with respect to the handling of your personal data. This privacy policy explains how we do this. This website has links to other partner sites, which may also have their own privacy policies. Please read these if you visit any sub-sites.

Collection and use of personal information
If during your visit to this website you wish to download content and access our free resources, you will be prompted to create an account. For legitimate business reasons, we will need to know certain information about you and your organisation in order to provide tailored services. We will only use your personal information to provide the information, products or services which you actively opted-in to receive.

Where you have subscribed to receive our newsletter(s) or marketing communications, we will collect information relating to your interactions with that communication, such as whether you receive, open or click on a link within an email communication. We offer you the option to unsubscribe at all times from further communications.

Disclosures and transfers of personal information
Any transfer of personal data to this site will be secured by encryption. We may store or transfer your personal data to our other bp companies around the world. Where this is the case, your personal data shall remain at all-time protected under bp’s comprehensive, flexible, and global compliance framework which implements appropriate measures and safeguards (including EU standard contractual clauses) which guarantee an adequate level of data protection throughout the bp group.

We also use the services of third-party service providers to host our webcasts, offer training programmes and technical support. Any third-party provider we appoint must act in accordance with our written instructions when processing your personal data and must protect your personal data in line with the contractually required security measures. Where we store or transfer your personal data to a third party provider based outside the European Economic Area, we take steps to ensure your personal data is adequately protected.

We reserve the right to disclose your personal data as required by law, or when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, request from a regulator or any other legal process served on bp. If there is a takeover, sale or purchase of our business, we may disclose your personal data to the new (or prospective) owner of the business.

How long do we keep your information?
We will hold your information for as long as it necessary to manage your account and provide you with the goods and services you may request from time to time.

Your rights
You have the right to access your personal data, ask for it to be rectified or deleted, or object to or restrict our continued processing of your information. Please email us at [email protected] to get in contact for privacy related enquiries.

If you are in the EU, you also have the right to raise a privacy concern with the Data Protection Authority established in the relevant EU country. However, please consider using bp’s internal complaint resolution mechanism first by contacting us at the email address above.

Third party websites we link to
Our website may contain links to third-party sites. This privacy statement does not apply to those third party sites. We recommend that you read the privacy statements of any other sites that you visit as we cannot accept responsibility for the privacy practices of these sites which may be different to ours.

When you register, you are offered the facility to use an address look-up service provided to us by a third party called SPIRIT. This is a UK based database of schools supplied to us by The Education Company Ltd. We use this database to gather supplemental information, such as your school postcode. This allows us to simplify your registration process and monitor which resources you open to assist us in our development of new resources.
