About this privacy policy

At QSI ltd., we understand that privacy is an important issue for the visitors of the website and its related domains. The following information is designed to help visitors understand what information we collect from our site, and how we handle and use the information after that.

Information collection and use

QSI ltd. is the sole owner of any information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. QSI ltd. may collect information from our users at several different points on our website.

General Inquiries

If a user contacts QSI ltd. with a general enquiry, the user may need to provide QSI ltd. with personal information (name, email, phone number). QSI ltd. will use this personal information to respond to the inquiry and track further correspondence. Personal information collected is not used for any other purpose.

Personal Details – QQI Learner (GDPR)

QQI uses your PPSN as a unique identifier. It allows all your achievements to be kept within one record on the QQI certification system.

Your name is recorded because it is printed on your certificate.

Your date of birth is used for statistical purposes. It can also help to trace your records on the certification system, especially if you were certified by any of QQI’s legacy bodies (HETAC, FETAC, NCVA, NCEA). PPSNs were not used prior to 2005.

The contact details that you submitted are only used by your education and training provider. As QQI only deals with learners via their education and training provider, they do not contact learners directly.

To protect your rights under GDPR, as a QQI Provider QSI will require such personal details (PPS number, date of birth and name) for attendees who attend QQI certified courses.  This information will be used for the sole purpose of course and award certificates.  This information will not be retained by QSI.
