Privacy Notice - NFER Prize Draw

By entering the prize draw you have provided information about yourself (‘personal data’). We (National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER) * are the ‘data controller’ for this information, which means we decide how to use it and are responsible for looking after it in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (2016) and associated data protection legislation.

How we use your data

We will use your data to ensure the rules of the prize draw are adhered to and to contact you if you win a prize.

We are processing your data for this purpose only because you have given us your consent to do so, by providing your email. You can withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us at [email protected]or 01865 277220. In this event, we will stop the processing as soon as possible. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before your withdrawal of consent.

We will only use your data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another related reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use your data for an unrelated purpose, we will seek your consent to use it for that new purpose.

Who has access to your data?

Access to your data within NFER will be provided only to those who need to view it as part of their work in running the prize draw.

We may share your data with companies who provide services to us, such as for data collection. These companies are required to take appropriate security measures to protect your data in line with our policies. We do not allow them to use your data for their own purposes. We permit them to process your data only for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

Retaining your data

We will retain your data only until the draw has taken place and the prize successfully claimed, unless you have chosen to ‘opt-in’ to our marketing communications when you submitted the prize draw form. In which case, your data afterwards will be processed in-line with our privacy policy.


Your data will be held securely in accordance with NFER’s policies and procedures. Further information is available on our privacy policy.
