This policy sets out how we collect information about you (such as your name, address, email and telephone details) and how that information may be used. By providing us with personal information you are deemed to have accepted the terms of this policy. Please do not provide us with any personal information if you do not agree to the terms of this policy. How do we collect your information?

Data Collection & Use

We may collect information about you through various activities that you participate in. These may include:

  • Registering to receive email
  • Registering to join our mailing list
  • Providing answers to surveys and questionnaires
  • By registering to use password-protected services

In each case, your details will only be used for the express purposes of the activity. When appropriate, there may be an additional option to 'join an email newsletter' or 'mailing list'. Where these have been chosen by you, your name and details will be added to the appropriate service. You can unregister at any time by contacting us at the address given above or via email.

Film Education follows all current guidelines and laws regarding Data Protection and Privacy in the United Kingdom. If you have any complaint or concern about our use of data please inform us in writing by post or email. We take data very seriously and will do our best to respond appropriately to any concerns that you raise.

We may also collect information about you in other ways, for example, if you enter a competition or post on a message board. If you use our message boards, please remember that other users of the websites can see any information you put on the message boards. We do not monitor the message boards.

Web Statistics & Analysis

We may also aggregate information about you with information about other visitors to the website in order to identify trends in our business ('Aggregated Data'). We may pass Aggregated Data to third parties such as advertisers and business partners to give them a better understanding of our business. However, such information will not identify you personally.


What are cookies and why do we use them?

This website uses 'cookies'. These are small files of data that are downloaded onto your computer when you visit our website. They allow our website to 'remember' your activities on our website and the number of times you have visited. We can use the information stored by cookies to help us to provide you with a better online experience. We also use this information to create the Aggregated Data mentioned above.

You can set your Internet browser so it will not accept cookies. If you choose not to accept cookies you will still be able to browse our website but you will not be able to take advantage of any of the personalised options, such as registration.

Marketing Communications

Information that we collect about you may be used to send you information about our activities, our upcoming resources, or films or other useful information (for example, newsletters, details of competitions, special offers and information about events).

When you register with us we will also ask you if you would like to receive information about the products or services of our third party business partners that we think may be of interest to you. We will not send you this information without your consent.

Remember, if you do not want to receive any more information from us all you have to do is contact us at the address at the top of the policy at any time.

Third Parties

We will not usually pass your information onto any third parties without your consent. An exception to this is if we need third parties to carry out certain services for us. For example, if you win a competition we will pass your information onto a third party who will arrange delivery of your prize. We will make sure that such third parties keep your information secure and no longer than is necessary.


We have taken steps to ensure that all personally identifiable information that we collect is secure, including limiting the number of people who can access this information and using electronic security systems. You can help by ensuring that you keep your passwords secret and properly log out of our websites if you have been using them.

Access to your personal information

You have the right to request a copy of the personal information that we hold about you and to have any errors corrected. If you would like to make a request please write to us at the address above or send an email.

Changes to this Policy

From time to time we may make changes to this policy. We will post a notice of the changes together with the updated policy on the website.
