If you choose to book a course from us, our third-parties payment processors, Stripe will collect your payment information. We also collect information given to us on Expense Claims (expense details, bank paying-in details, and receipts); e-mails and correspondence; details of financial transactions made, for example course fee payments taken, and grants paid out to individuals or schools.

How We Use Your Information. 

This limited amount of data that Waterford Teachers Centre holds is only used for the following purposes: for having an up-to-date list of schools, course and project participants; for sending out communications, and staying in touch with schools, tutors and account users; for keeping track of who has paid course fees, when, and how much has been paid; for legally-binding accounting purposes (e.g. knowing to whom Waterford Teachers Centre has paid grants and expenses, when, and how much has been paid); e-mail addresses and contacts necessary for administering and carrying out Waterford Teachers Centre projects and centre business. We use the information that we collect about your profile solely to provide access to your registration area, to view course attendance certificates and to keep you informed.
