What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Contact Forms

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the contact form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.  The following are examples of information that we may collect directly from you: your name, email address and telephone number.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Information Usage and Storage

We will use your personal data to fulfil our role as school exhibition organisers, meet our contractual obligations, send you information about the education sector which we think may be of interest to you.  We may subscribe you to our newsletter, if your express permission was granted.  If any of the personal information we hold about you is inaccurate or out of date, you may ask us to correct it.

If you leave a comment on the website, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

We take reasonable steps to ensure that your information is kept safe and will endeavour to protect it from unauthorised access.

Please make your request in writing to the business address of Waypoints and we shall respond to you within one month, as required by law.  You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

You have the right to object to our use of your personal data and to ask us to delete it if there is no need for us to keep it.  Please inform us in writing if you think we are retaining or using your personal data incorrectly.  We shall delete any such data within 3 business days, unless there is a legal reason why we are not allowed to do so.  We will also correct any inaccuracies in your information at your request.
