We use technically necessary third-party content (e.g. script libraries) to ensure the function of our website. If you do not accept the use of these necessary cookies, please do not visit this E-learning website.

We take technical and organisational measures to protect your data as comprehensively as possible from unwanted access. These measures include encryption procedures on our E-learning Website. Your data is transferred from your computer to our server and vice versa via the internet using TLS encryption.

In order to participate in our e-learning courses, it is necessary to create a user account on this E-learning Website. A new registration requires the mandatory collection of the following personal and non-personal data:
The legal basis for the data processing is our legitimate interest to be able to provide you with e-learning in an access-protected area according to Art. 6 (1) (f) UK GDPR.
Further information is voluntary and will only be processed on the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit a UK GDPR (for information on the right of withdrawal, see "Your rights as a data subject"). Passwords are stored in encrypted form using a cryptographic hash function and are therefore impossible to reconstruct, or at least very difficult to reconstruct with a very high computing effort.
In order to ensure your proper registration, after your registration you will receive a confirmation via the E-mail you provided. After successful registration we permanently store the data you have provided in our system in accordance with the specifications described under "Storage period".
In the “My Profile” area of your user account, you can change and add to your master data, activate and deactivate communication permission and change your password.
As part of the contractual use of the user account, the following data is generally processed:
When a user participates in a course, the following information is regularly collected and stored:
This participation data is used to ensure that the user has viewed or edited all course content (e.g. slides, texts, module tests) before the participation status is set to "completed" and a participation certificate is generated. The certificate of attendance includes the name of the user, the name of the course, the completion date of the course, the user’s company name, the user’s job title, summary of learning content, and the aims and objectives of the course. If the user has added their professional registration number then this will appear on the certificate of attendance.
The certificate of attendance will be made available to the user in the "User Certificates” area, where it can be downloaded for no longer than 1 year. Certificates are available to download for 1 year in respect of the obligation for some users to provide CPD evidence to organisational bodies and regulators. Please note that it is the user's responsibility to keep an accurate and complete record of any CPD and training that the user has carried out.
Data associated with a user account will be retained for the time the account is maintained. In the case of a longer inactivity of the user account exceeding 2 years, we will notify you by E-mail that your account is due for removal. In the case of no contact and no login to the account within 4 weeks, the account will be deleted.
On this website (schuelke-learning.com), we embed videos that are not hosted on our servers. In order to ensure that accessing our websites containing embedded videos does not automatically lead to the download of third-party content, we only show locally hosted preview images of the videos as a first step. As a result, the third-party provider does not receive any information.
Only after you click on the preview image, is content from the third-party provider downloaded. This provides the third party with information that you have accessed our site and with the usage data technically required for this purpose. Furthermore, the third party provider is then able to implement tracking technologies. We have no influence on the further data processing by the third-party provider. By clicking on the preview image, you give us your consent to download content from the third-party provider.
The embedding is based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (1a) UK GDPR, provided that you have given your consent by clicking on the preview image. Please note that the embedding of many videos leads to your data being processed outside the UK, EU or EEA. In some countries, there is a risk that authorities may access the data for security and surveillance purposes without informing you or allowing you to take legal action. Where we use providers in third countries without an adequate level of protection and you give your consent, the transfer to this third country is based on Art. 49(1)(a) UK GDPR.
|Third party/Provider||Adequate level of data protection||Revocation of consent|
|YouTube / Google (USA)||No adequate level of data protection. The data is transmitted on the basis of Art. 49 (1a) GDPR.||If you click on a preview image, the content of the third-party provider is immediately downloaded. To avoid this downloading on other sites, please do not click on the preview image.|

These service providers are usually data processors within the meaning of Art. 28 UK GDPR. Our service providers are strictly bound by contracts and our instructions.
