4. Service user / learner data

4.1       Data collected and stored by Red Rock International

4.1.1     For some of our training course and events, we collect personal information from participants for a variety of reasons. These may include:

  • to be aware of any medical conditions which might impact participation on the event, or which first aiders should be aware of in the event of an incident
  • to contact participants before, during or after the course
  • to provide certificates with the correct name, organisation and to be able to send to a mailing address
  • to be able to contact next of kin in the event of an incident
  • to be able to provide access to relevant assessments (such as the Birkman Method) if they are required parts of the course
  • to request permission to use photos from the course for marketing purposes

4.1.2     We normally destroy all physical and electronic records upon completion of the course or event. Occasionally, we may retain records for up to three years or, in exceptional circumstances, longer where there is a legitimate interest in doing so. Physical records are retained in locked storage, and digital records are stored on secure, password protected areas where access is limited to essential personnel.

We may also receive information about learners from their employer when they book courses, provide details of participants, communicate and special requirements. This information may include, but is not restricted to name, gender, date of birth and nationality, and health-related information which may be relevant to activities included in RRI courses.

4.2       Data sharing with third-party organisations

4.2.1     On occasion, service user information may be shared with third parties, who must agree to follow the terms of our privacy policy. Situations where information might be shared are:

  • to allow a third party to provide access to proprietary assessment tools (such as the Birkman Method)
  • where third parties, contractors leading specific activities or providing training venues, require medical information to fulfil their services safely

Learners taking part in RRI training which leads to a third-party certification, i.e.ILM qualifications or recognised development programmes, must be aware that their personal data will be securely shared with that organisation via a secure, password-protected web portal. Details of the way that ILM uses and stores personal data can be found in their Learner Personal Data Policy (
