How we care for and administer your data.
We collect information about you when you contact Tercet House Limited.

We do this in order to provide you access to our course material and to enable us to reissue copy certificates on request.
We keep your personal data (first name, last name, email address, assigned password and test scores) for as long as the purpose for which we gathered it remains.
If your company or organisation is providing access to our courses via the Administrators Dashboard, your company/organisation administrator will also be able to view your first name, last name, email address, assigned password and test scores.
When the reason for gathering and holding your data no longer exists we destroy and remove your data from our systems.
