All PayPal transactions are subject to the PayPal privacy policy which is available on the PayPal website.

We offer feedback forms within each course, which would identify which user completed them as they are only available when a user is logged in. The results of these feedback forms are analysed for statistical purposes. In the event that the feedback given requires a response, we will use the identifying user information on that form in order to communicate with that user. The Bar Standards Board, Solicitors' Regulation Authority and Chartered Institute of Legal Executives, may request sight of these forms to confirm compliance with their respective regulatory CPD requirements. By completing such a feedback form, you accept that it may be shared with your professional body for this purpose.
