We collect Personal Information from you when you provide it to us directly and through your use of the ATE website. This information may include:

  • Information you provide to us when you use the ATE website (e.g. Your name, contact details, date of birth and/or age and any information which you add to your profile or post on the ATE website, details about your interactions on the ATE website etc);
  • Information you provide to use when you make a booking or add a child to your account on the ATE website (e.g. your child’s name, their age, etc. This also includes sensitive data including health information etc.)
  • Transaction and billing information, if you make any purchases from us or using the ATE website (e.g. a record of your purchases, credit/debit card details and delivery information);
  • Records of your interactions with us (e.g. if you contact our central Office team or interact with us on social media);
  • Information collected automatically, using cookies and other tracking technologies (e.g. which pages you viewed and whether you clicked on a link in one of our email updates). We may also collect information about the device you use to access the ATE website; and
  • Other information necessary to provide the ATE website, for example we may access your location if you give us your consent.

We may combine the information collected via the ATE website with information we collect from you offline, for the purposes of better understanding our customers and Superweekers and to improve our services.


Depending on how you use the ATE website, your interactions with us, and the permissions you give us, the purposes for which we use your Personal Information include:

  • To fulfil your purchase, order or request (for example, when you book a Superweek through the ATE website).
  • To maintain your profile on the ATE website and offer you a personalised experience on the ATE website.
  • To manage and respond to any queries or complaints to our central Office team.
  • To improve and maintain the ATE website and monitor its usage.
  • For market research, e.g. we may contact you for your opinions and comments after a Superweek.
  • To send you marketing messages, where we have your consent or are otherwise permitted to do so.
  • To comply with our legal and regulatory obligations.

We also collate anonymised and non-identifying data to compile statistics that we use to track trends in the organisation’s performance, and as evidence for grant applications. We may also use anonymised feedback comments in marketing materials and within applications for funding.

We rely on the following legal bases, under data protection law, to process your Personal Information:

  • Because the processing is necessary to perform a contract with you, or take steps prior to entering into a contract with you (e.g. where you have made a booking with us, we use your Personal Information to process the payment and fulfil your order).
  • Because we have obtained your consent (e.g. where you contact us with a query, where you add optional information to your account profile, or if you consent to receive marketing from us). You are free to withdraw your consent at any time.
  • Because it is in our legitimate interests in operating our business, for security purposes, to protect our staff, property, premises, and reputation, for fraud prevention and to operate and promote the organisation.
