Your privacy is our concern
Like all professional education and customer-focused businesses, tmap collects personal information to help improve apprentice, employer and visitor experience. The basic information you give helps us process your order, inform you of any delays or problems and occasionally to send you special offers and promotions about our apprenticeship courses. The information we collect is as simple as:
Your name – so we know what to call you
Email address – so we can email you order confirmations, delivery delays, offers etc
Delivery address – an obvious one
Telephone number – we’ll only call if we have a delivery problem
Mobile number – so we can text you with details about your orders or where we have a question.
We are fully compliant with the Data Protection Act
You should be assured that the information you provide during an online transaction is treated confidentially, and not disclosed to a third party. We have adopted a set of guidelines to protect our users’ privacy, which comply with the Data Protection Act 1998. When GDPR comes into force in May 2018, we will ensure that we are fully compliant. A summary of our current guidelines is as follows:

Avoid using the same password for numerous Internet sites.
