d) Collection and use of information: In deciding to offer you this course we have checked your details against a national database to establish if you have completed a similar course within the last 3 years of this offence. If you decide to accept the course, we may ask you to give additional information so we can process the course booking. If you complete the course, your details relating to this course will remain on the system for road safety research purposes for a further 6 years from the date of the offence, after which any personal reference to you will be erased. Your details will not be released to any other parties except a Police force if they are considering making an offer of a course in the future. Your personal details will not at any time be made available to the public. If you fail to complete the course or if the offer is withdrawn your personal details relating to this matter will be erased from the national database.
