Due to the nature of the industry in which The Forklift training centre limited operates, we believe in the Right to be Forgotten. 

Attendees of a course: if an individual employed by a company requests the right to be forgotten, The Forklift training centre limited will first check with the company to ensure that they approve this data removal from their training records. Once approved, the data can be removed from the CRM.

CRM Contact: if a contact no longer wishes to be contacted then we can remove that individual’s data from the CRM. If we have provided training for their company then we cannot delete their company record from our CRM as individual training records will be associated to it.

Tracked online activity: anyone who would like records of their online activity removed can request to do so by emailing the Data Controller.


If a contract ends between The Forklift training centre limited and the customer, The Forklift training centre limited can provide all the personal data that they hold about the customer and the individuals within the organisation, if requested.

The Forklift training centre limited will not delete the associated training records as this data may be requested as evidence of training if for example, an individual has an accident.
