BBO Maths Hub Data Privacy Statement

This privacy notice explains how we use any personal information we collect about you.

Your personal data – what is it?

Personal data relates to a living individual who can be identified from that data. Identification can be by the information alone or in conjunction with any other information in the data controller’s possession or likely to come into such possession. The processing of personal data is governed by the General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”).

Who are we?

BBO Maths Hub is the data controller. This means it decides how your personal data is processed and for what purposes. Our registered office is Wycombe High School, Marlow Road, High Wycombe, Bucks, HP11 1TB.

How do we process your personal data?

BBO Maths Hub complies with its obligations under the “GDPR” by keeping personal data up to date; by storing and destroying it securely; by not collecting or retaining excessive amounts of data; by protecting personal data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access and disclosure and by ensuring that appropriate technical measures are in place to protect personal data. All personal data is kept on central IT systems and is not stored or transported on portable electronic devices.

We use your personal data for the following purposes:

  • To correspond with you about any work group you have registered for; including keeping you updated with relevant information such as timings and locations.
  • To keep you updated with the BBO Maths Hub monthly Newsletter.
  • To send you information on CPD opportunities offered by Maths Hubs

What information do we collect about you? We collect information about you when you register;  your name, email address,  school name & school address.

Who sees your information? BBO Maths Hub considers the delegate’s email address to be confidential information and as such shall only be seen by BBO Maths Hub and other individuals nominated by them (including Work Group Leads). In all other cases, data is only shared on a strict need-to-know basis. For example, a Work Group Lead will generally only receive the names and email addresses of the participants in their workgroup.

Sharing your personal data Your personal data will be treated as confidential. BBO Maths Hub will not share your information for marketing purposes with anyone else unless obliged by law. You have a right at any time to stop us from contacting you. You will always have the opportunity to unsubscribe on receipt of an email at any time by clicking on ‘unsubscribe’ or by replying to the email with ‘Unsubscribe’ in the header.

What is the legal basis for processing your personal data?

Specific consent from individual teachers to the data we are collecting is not always needed as there is a legal basis for processing the data. The work of the Maths Hubs is being carried out within the framework of two contracts:

  1. The Department for Education’s Grant Agreements with the lead school
  2. The Department for Education’s contract with Tribal Education Ltd to operate the NCETM

There is a therefore a contractual basis for processing this data, both by the hubs and the NCETM.  This applies particularly for teachers signed up to participate in work groups where the data is processed under legitimate interest.   

For all other teachers, specific consent will be sought and recorded.

  • The right to request a copy of your personal data which BBO Maths Hub holds about you
  • The right to request that the BBO Maths Hub corrects any personal data if it is found to be inaccurate or out of date;
  • The right to request your personal data is erased where it is no longer necessary for BBO Maths Hub to retain such data;
  • The right to withdraw your consent to the processing at any time
  • The right to request that the data controller provide the data subject with his/her personal data and where possible, to transmit that data directly to another data controller, (known as the right to data portability), (where applicable)
  • The right to object to the processing of personal data, (where applicable)
  • The right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioners Office.
