Information we may collect from you

We generally collect information provided through our website such as name, address, phone number, mobile phone number(s), facsimile numbers, email addresses and general contact information to facilitate G4S to be able to readily communicate with you. We also collect additional personal information such as course preferences (your "information").

We collect and may disclose statistical information gathered as a whole (e.g. total number of course applicants and applicant origin) for internal reporting purposes and to improve the experience we offer to our global users. However, we never disclose information that identifies any individual for such purposes. We do not knowingly solicit information from children and we do not knowingly market our services to children.

Uses made of the information

G4S gathers the personal information required for you to be considered for training courses within G4S and to conduct research relating to our training activities. Generally, the information gathered from you is used to assist you to search for G4S training courses. As such, it may require us to release your personal information with your consent to G4S training managers, administrators and third party contractors.

These G4S training managers, administrators and third party contractors may be in the UK or in other parts of the world including outside the European Economic Area. By registering with G4S, you agree that your information may be shared with G4S training managers, administrators and third party contractors for the purpose of supporting you to find suitable G4S training courses, supporting our research relating to our training activities and processing you for each training courses application you submit and you consent to the transfer of your information outside the European Economic Area.

We may also use, disclose and communicate your personal information for compliance with any legal obligation to which we may be subject.

G4S uses all reasonable means to ensure that third party sources use your personal information only for the purposes for which it was provided and in adherence to the G4S Privacy Policy. However, G4S is not responsible for any improper use of your personal information that is beyond our reasonable control.

We do not disclose your information to anyone except as described above, including personal information, email addresses, information about your visits to the site, etc.

Where we store your personal data

Your personal information is stored on a secure server hosted by a G4S approved contractor. The server resides in the United Kingdom.
