2. Legal Grounds for Processing
By executing any contractual agreement with Garcia Inspired Training, hereinafter referred to as the “Company”.
The Company shall have the right to process your personal data, to enable the Company to fulfil its legal and contractual obligations in its capacity to deliver a live event.
The Company may rely on one or more of the following legal grounds to process your personal data:
- Contract: Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR, which relates to the processing necessary for the performance of a contract. The Company will use when you register as a participant at one of our live events.

The Company will always make it clear what your personal data will be used for and provide you the facility to withdraw your consent – refer to section Your Rights (below).
- Legal Obligation: Article 6(1)(c) of the GDPR, where the processing is necessary in order for the Company to comply with a legal obligation. For example, where the Company will need to share information to HMRC.
- Legitimate Interests: Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR, which relates to our legitimate interests pursued by us the Company or by a third party (such as Company partners), except where such interests are overridden by the interests or your fundamental rights and freedoms which require protection of your personal data. Examples of our legitimate interests are as follows:
- evaluation of workshop (e.g. trainer training and evaluation for event improvements)
- communicating with our clients/participants to introduce them to services, or market similar services that may be of interest and benefit to them
- promotions and publicity (e.g. using photographs and videos of an event to promote and grow our business)
3. Purposes of Processing
Purposes of processing personal data include:
- Participants/Clients: We use your personal data so that we can deliver the workshop and tell you about the details of the live event you registered for. This may also include telling you about future events, which may be of interest to you.
4. Transfers to Third Parties
While processing your personal data for the purposes indicated above, the Company may use the services of third parties such as Goggle G Suite for electronic mail, and Active Campaign for email automation and marketing.
The Company uses data processors who are third parties who provide elements of services on behalf of the business. The Company will have contracts in place with the data processors. This means that the data processors cannot do anything with your personal data unless the Company has instructed them to do so. They will not share your personal data with any organisation apart from the Company. The data processor will hold it securely and retain it for the period the Company instruct.
5. Cross-Border Data Transfers
The Company’s business processes increasingly go beyond the borders of one country. This globalisation demands not only the availability of communications and information systems across the Company, but also the worldwide processing and use of data within the Company. Consequently, your data may be subject to cross border data transfers.
The Company stores your personal data in digital format on secure local and cloud servers and systems hosted in the European Union (EU) and the United States (US). Where data is stored on servers located in the US we rely on the Privacy Shield Framework and/or the EU model clauses (called the Data Transfer Agreements) to transfer this data.
You may request a copy of the Data Transfer Agreements or data on the other applicable safeguards we use to protect your personal data.
Your personal data will be stored for no longer than necessary considering the purposes of the processing activities.
The retention will not exceed 7 years from the end of the contract/agreement after which your personal data will be destroyed securely.
7. Keeping Your Personal Data Secure
The Company has policies, procedures and security in place to keep your personal data secure once it is in our systems. All personal data is stored securely in accordance with the principles of the GDPR.
Any personal data collected in paper form (e.g. release and consent forms) are securely filed at our UK site location. All access to your personal data is highly restricted for approved business purposes only.
Insofar as you post information on our social media, it is your responsibility to distinguish between private group areas accessible only to our members and public areas accessible to anyone.
