Frome Community Education Privacy Policy – GDPR Compliance
In order to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in effect from May 2018, Frome Community Education is clarifying the way in which personal data is collected, processed, and handled.
FCE currently collects and holds personal data from students (data subjects). 
In compliance with GDPR regulations, FCE only collects personal data which is needed and necessary. This data is:
- Name, Address, Phone Numbers, Email Address, Classes joined

To ensure students have real choice and control, FCE will be obtaining genuine and explicit consent from data subjects (students) whenever personal data is required for a specific purpose.
Obtaining Consent and the 'Right to be Informed'
The data that is collected by FCE is for the purposes of students attending classes offered by tutors working with FCE. We also circulate information about our other relevant classes. To ensure GDPR compliance FCE will now obtain explicit consent from the data subject to collect data. All data subjects will be informed of the collection and use of their personal data in the following manner:-
