In general, we receive your personal data where you provide this on a voluntary basis, and there will typically be no detrimental effect for you if you wish not to provide this or otherwise withhold your consent for it to be processed. However, there are certain cases where we will, unfortunately, be unable to act without receiving such data, for example where we need to carry out legally required compliance screening or require such data to process your instructions or orders, or otherwise to provide you with our online services or communications.

Where it is not possible for us to provide you with what you request without the relevant personal data, we will let you know accordingly.

How do we keep your personal data safe?

We take appropriate technical and organisational measures to keep your data confidential and secure, by our internal policies and procedures regarding storage of, access to, and disclosure of personal data.

Personal data we receive from you about other people

Where you provide us with the personal data of other people, such as your employees, directors of your companies, or other persons you may have dealings with, you must ensure that you are entitled to disclose that personal data to us and that, without being required to take further steps, we can collect, use and disclose that data in the manner described in this policy. More specifically, you must ensure that the individual whose personal data you are sharing with us is aware of the matters discussed in this Privacy Policy, as these are relevant to that individual, including our identity, how to get in touch with us, the purposes for which we collect data, our disclosure practices, and the rights of the individual about our holding of the data.

Transfers of personal data abroad

THE EUROPEAN LEGAL TRAINING CENTER is active across the world. This means that we may transfer your data abroad if required to do so for the Permitted Purposes. In certain cases, this may include transferring data to countries that do not offer the same level of protection as the laws of your country (such as the data protection legislation of the EU/EEA).

When making such transfers, we will ensure that they are subject to appropriate safeguards by the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation 2016/679) or other relevant data protection legislation. This may include entering into the EU Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses. Please get in touch at if you wish to obtain further information on the appropriate safeguards to which we are adhering.

All entities and offices within The European Legal Training Center will ensure an adequate level of protection for your data at all times.

How long do we keep your data?

We delete your data once it is no longer reasonably necessary for us to keep it for the Permitted Purposes, or, where we have relied on your consent to keep your data, once you withdraw your consent for us to do so, and we are not otherwise legally permitted or required to keep the data.

Importantly, THE EUROPEAN LEGAL TRAINING CENTER will keep your data as necessary for defending or making legal claims until the end of the period during which we may retain the data and otherwise until the settlement of any such claims, as relevant.

What rights do you have?

To do any of the above, please contact us at To enable us to process your request, we may require that you provide us with proof of your identity, such as by providing us with a copy of a valid form of identification. This is to ensure that we appropriately protect the personal data we hold from unauthorized access requests and comply with our security obligations.

We may charge you a reasonable administrative fee for any unreasonable or excessive requests we may receive, and for any additional copies of the data, you may request.

About complaints, we will promptly respond to your requests and complaints. If you are unhappy with our response, you may submit a complaint to the relevant privacy regulator. We can provide you with the details of the relevant regulator upon request.
