The information that the AECB holds about you is that supplied when you enrol on the course.  We hold details of all students who have current access to the course materials in order to communicate information relevant to the course and for future renewal access .General communication is sent using Mailchimp (which is GDPR compliant).  In order to view the information we hold, you can log in to this website with your course log in details and amend or delete any details if required. If you need a reminder of your log in details, please email here.

For students whose access to the course has lapsed,  the AECB will need to keep your email address if you wish to remain a member of the CLR community.  This is so that we can inform you of events and updates. For example:

  • To invite you to any events, forums etc. that are specifically for CLR community members.
  • To invite you to provide feedback on CLR or to suggest ideas for future development

You can unsubscribe from these emails at any time and we will remove your email from our master spreadsheet but will retain name and graduation status as a permanent record which may also be publicly listed unless you email here.

If a student has not passed the course and is no longer accessing course materials their details will be kept for 6 years for financial purposes only.  If this applies to you and you need to update or delete details please contact us here.
