Disclosure of your information
We may share your personal information with any member of our group, which means our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries, as defined in section 1159 of the UK Companies Act 2006 and with our service providers.
We may share your information:
- If we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply our User Terms and Terms of Supply and other agreements; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Aptimore, our customers, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction;
- in the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we may disclose personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets;
- in the event that Aptimore Limited or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by it about its customers will be one of the transferred assets.
Many of our users have access to our services provided or funded by their employer or place of work. We will never disclose the results or outcomes of your Program to any third party. After you have completed your Program, Aptimore may offer you additional follow-on services (including online activities or training units). At times, you may wish to share results or outcomes of those follow-on activities, training units or other services with specific third parties (such as your employer or a prospective employer). However, we will never disclose the results or outcomes of any such activities or training undertaken with us unless requested in writing to do so by you, or with your explicit consent.
If your Aptimore membership is funded by a third party, that third party may have access to the following information:
- when you have been sent your log-in details;
- when you have registered with us;
- when you have begun and completed your individual questionnaire (but not any of your answers to the questionnaire, or any of our recommendations or feedback based on your answers);
- when you have begun and completed each of the training units (either those units contained within the Program or any follow-on units that you choose to share), and
- when you have completed your development report at the end of the program (but not the content of your development report).
If you have been registered with Aptimore as part of a corporate group of 3 or more persons (a “Group”), the following feedback may be made available to your Account Manager in aggregated form: (1) a summary of areas where the Group would be interested in learning more and (2) a summary of how much new insight the Group felt they gained within the Aptimore program on a presented list of topics or similar summary information. These summaries will not show responses made by individual users.
In addition, your Account Manager may choose to create a leaderboard to allow the people in your Group to compare progress. The leaderboard may show summary information such as the number of training units you have begun or completed, but will not show any of your individual responses.
Where we store your personal data
All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Any payment transactions will be encrypted using SSL technology.
Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain features or parts of our Site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
Whilst we operate security measures in line with industry standards, unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our Site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
We hope that you will find Aptimore useful at different times throughout your career. For this reason, unless you contact us with alternative instructions, we will retain your account information after your membership expires for a period of five (5) years, as our experience shows there may be a time in the future when you would like to access your account again. Please let us know if you would like us to:
- delete any of your personal identifying information associated with your account;
- dissociate your User Membership from the account of your Account Manager; or
- associate your User Membership with a new Account Manager (for example, if you have moved employers).
You can contact us to ask what data we hold and also to have your data removed in line with the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).
You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. We will inform you before we collect your data if we intend to use your data for such purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by checking (or un-checking) certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data, by clicking the ‘unsubscribe’ button on any email you receive from us, or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.
