9.1 As City Lit receives government funding it is legally required to share student personal data collected when you enrol on a course to government agencies. These agencies are:
- Education & Skills Funding Agency
- European Social Fund
- Greater London Authority
9.2 Your information may also be shared with our educational partners where necessary to provide you with a service you have requested. This would happen when, for example, you have requested to enrol on an accredited course where an external awarding body is involved. When doing this, we will provide you with further information at the time of first collecting your information.
9.3 City Lit sometimes uses third parties to process and store your information on our behalf, for example to provide services or analysis. We require these third parties to comply with our instructions and that they do not use your personal information for their own business purposes, unless you have explicitly consented to them using your personal information in this way.
9.4 Although most of the information we store and process stays within the UK, some data may be transferred to other countries. Transfers to countries within the EU are permitted because every EU country is subject to the requirements under GDPR. If data is transferred outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) the recipient organisation must ensure an adequate level of protection for your rights and freedoms.
