GDPR policy

At Orthus Educational Consultancy we are committed to safeguarding privacy for everyone. We understand that providing personal and sensitive information is an act of trust and we treat your information with respect and integrity.

For the purpose of the Data Protection Act 1998 (the "Act") and the General Data Protection Regulation 2016, the data controller is Keith Cheetham.

Here is a summary of how we look after your Personal Data in the context of GDPR principles:

Your Right to Be Informed

To make things as clear as possible, we have posted a notice of our updated Privacy Policy on our website https://orthuseducation.co.uk. It provides all the details about how we process your data, where it’s stored and how it will be used to fulfil your services.

Your Right of Access & Rectification
Your personal data can be updated at any time. You can always get in touch with us to make changes to personal data and to fix any problems with incorrect details provided. You can do this by emailing us on [email protected]

Your Right to Erasure

If you want us to delete your personal details, please get in touch by emailing the and where we can, we’ll make sure your details are deleted within 30 days of the request being received.

We will retain your information for as long as needed to provide you with one of our services or as long as needed to fulfil the purpose for which the Personal Data was originally collected. We may also be required to retain certain information by law and/or for legitimate business purposes (for example, VAT records).

Your Right to Restrict Processing
We manage a ‘need to know’ access system within our business and we use password permissions to control who can view customer Personal Data – so not everyone in our business can view your details.

In addition, if you have requested an account closure, but we are required to retain your personal details for legitimate purposes (for example, a requirement to retain invoices for VAT records), then we will ensure that even more restrictions are put in place internally.

Your Right to Object

Just get in touch with us via email if you don’t want to receive any more email contact from us.

Data Storage & Access
All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers in the United Kingdom. We adopt appropriate data collection, storage, processing practices and security measures to protect against unauthorised access and disclosure of your personal information.

Once again the support from Keith and Kevin has been helpful, support during today’s appraisal was really appreciated. The OFSTED information will be helpful in pulling together the required information in a manageable format.

Rotherfield CE Primary School

Reassuring and extremely helpful

This was another very useful visit from Orthus. Both reassuring and extremely helpful in giving pointers forward to keep our progress going. It was particularly interesting doing the book look together and having some “outside eyes” looking at them in detail. I look forward to the next visit.
