Protecting the privacy of children is particularly important in data protection. At the School Run, we may hold some data on children taking part in our events or competitions.

When participating in one of our school events, we recommend that teachers and schools do not add the full names of children taking part on our tracking sheets. Instead, we recommend they should record a child's initials or associate them by a number. If a school wishes to add a child's full name to our tracking sheets, the school and/or teacher should seek permission from a parent or legal guardian before doing so.
If you, as a parent or guardian, discover that your child (under the age of 18) is recorded on our tracking sheets without your consent, please notify us at [email protected] and will we take the relevant action to ensure the Personal Data of the child is erased.
