Data Protection

Photo consent

During participation in your chosen EDT programme, photographs/video footage may be taken of you and used by EDT or its partner organisations to promote EDT and STEM activities. Some examples of how we use images/video footage are for brochures, social media, website and fundraising resources. Images are carefully selected to portray the programmes and students positively as well as to further promote our cause. We will hold images/video footage for the remainder of this programme and two years thereafter.

Data Protection Act

Engineering Development Trust stores the personal information you give us to allow us to administer the Scheme programme. We also use it to provide you with current and future information about our, and third parties’ services and engineering opportunities. Should you consent, we will hold your data for the remainder of the programme delivery and two years thereafter. We will then contact you with the option to ‘opt in’ to keep your details on our files for future opportunities available to you.    

Parent/Guardian/Carer Declaration (not older sibling unless legally appointed as guardian)

My child/ward is under the age of data consent currently set at 16. I therefore give my consent to this application (including the use of images/video footage where such consent has been given above) and will support my child/ward in fulfilling the requirements of the above declaration.

NB, I understand that EDT is responsible exclusively for the allocation of places to our courses.
