Our Website

Don't be thrown by the .com domain name. We are a non-profit education programme, managed by a non-profit organisation (the Centre for Global Education). This website is also not for profit. We will make no effort to collect personal information about you without your consent, nor will any unsolicited messages be sent to you as a result of your visit. We serve no external advertisements on this site and earn no revenue from any information provided.

We record information about each visit through the use of Cookies (see our Cookie Policy for more details). This information is maintained in order to assist us with managing the website and responding to problems. It is not shared with any third parties aside from our website developers.

This website is hosted by Green17 Creative via Precept IT based in Belfast, Northern Ireland, which uses industry standard software and state-of-the-art 24x7 security with protection against malicious attacks.

Registration for the Global Learning Programme (GLP)

Registration for the GLP is done through SurveyMonkey, an external survey website based in the USA, Brazil and Europe, which takes a wide range of measures to ensure user safety and security. Please see SurveyMonkey's Security Statement and Privacy Policy for full details. On the registration form, we will ask you to provide us with your school’s contact details. We will also ask you to name and provide details of the teachers who will be involved in implementing the programme in your school. You must make sure you have their express permission beforehand.

We collect this information so we can contact your school easily if required, and understand any expectations or requirements you may have of us. You have the option to opt your school in or out of a messaging service on our website so that you can communicate with other participating schools.

Once your school has completed GLP training, we will create a profile for it on this website using the information gathered at registration. The form we use to create the school profiles contains a 256-bit SSL certificate to keep your data secure when being posted to the server (the same security used by many banks). For more information go to: https://www.globalsign.com/en/ssl-information-center/what-is-an-ssl-certificate/

At times, participating schools may be asked to complete additional forms hosted on SurveyMonkey. For example, they may have to do so if they wish to apply to receive certification in global learning.

Any personal data relating to you and your school will be used and recorded by us in accordance with current data protection legislation and this Privacy Policy. We use the information collected from you to support your involvement in the Global Learning Programme. We may use your personal information to communicate with you about global learning, for record keeping purposes and in aggregate (and therefore anonymously) for market research purposes, to track activity on our site, to publish trends and/or to improve usefulness and content.

Registration for standalone events

Registration for all GLP events is also done through SurveyMonkey. The information you provide when registering for an event is gathered so we can monitor event attendance and contact you with further details about the event. When you register, we may also ask your permission to provide you with email updates about global learning and information about further training opportunities.

Emails

Emailing us

We will send email messages in response to direct queries sent to us, whether sent directly or sent via one of the contact forms on this website. The content of your email will only be accessed by members of the GLP team, unless your request necessitates us consulting a third party.

Our e-newsletter and mailing lists

Messages will be sent to those who subscribe to the GLP e-newsletter (which can be done via the link on the website homepage).  Our e-newsletter is issued via MailChimp , a marketing automation platform based in the USA. Please refer to MailChimp's Security Statement and Privacy Policy for further information. You can unsubscribe from our e-newsletter at any time by following the unsubscribe link which is included in the footer of every issue. You can also request that we cease all email contact with you by emailing us on glp@centreforglobaleducation.com.

Additionally, teachers from GLP Schools may occasionally be sent other messages related to global learning via MailChimp. Again, you can unsubscribe at any time as outlined above.

Data retention & storage

The GLP will only keep your personal information for as long as necessary in order to fulfil the purposes for which is has been collected. All personal data we gather is stored securely. Sometimes we back up our data by saving it to a cloud storage system called Dropbox, which is based in the USA. Dropbox maintains a high standard of security and has taken its own measures to ensure compliance with data protection legislation. Read more about this here.

The data we retain will not be made available to any third party, except for the purposes outlined elsewhere in this document. We will never sell your personal data to others.
