ABOUT KEVAN Kevan Taylor and his new black Peugot KT Driving's new Peugeot rear light

I think you ought to know that Privacy Laws in the UK and Europe have tightened up in an effort to improve the basic human right to privacy in the digital age.

Our New Updated Terms of Use and Privacy Policy


Last update 24th May, 2018


I want you to be aware of an update to our Privacy Policy in preparation for the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which takes effect on May 25th, 2018. The GDPR is a working document that will be updated over time and we’re obliged to keep our webservices legal.


You don’t have to do anything to enable greater rights to the protection of your data, that is granted by the new law. We still hope that all website visitors will adhere to our terms of use. You can access them from our Disclaimer Page.


To summarise here:

Kevan Taylor and his website designer aren’t asking you for any more of your data or to use it differently.

He has just updated his Privacy Policy to make it simpler to understand


  1.     what data we collect from you,Kevan only needs the information that he asks you to provide him with to take your lessons and tests. That’s all. If you want to write any comments on his Facebook page or this blog or stay in touch in later life, that’s up to you, and it’s fine with Kevan.
  2. how he uses this data. He uses contact details to contact you and arrange your lesson schedule and to ensure that you get the best chance to learn driving skills and become certified.

    and the rights you in respect of your data.  


You have the following rights to privacy regarding your data.


1.YOUR RIGHT TO VIEW ANY PERSONAL DATA THAT I HOLD ABOUT YOU


The Data Protection laws give you the right to access information held about you, if any is held. Any access request may be subject to a fee of up to £20 to meet my costs in providing you with details of the information (if any) that I hold about you and any information request must be accompanied by acceptable proof of your identity. I won’t just give your data to any one who asks for it. It may very well cost nothing to provide that information to you. I’ll verify important or complex instructions with you by voice. Please note that I don’t store information other than contact details, website files and invoices on my password protected PC so it may well be the case that I cannot oblige you with any other information about yourself. I know no personal information about website visitors unless they make a comment or interact with my Facebook. Even then I can only know what you tell about yourself. This is the Opt-in information age.


SECURITY of DATA TENURE


I recognize that it’s my duty not to treat your data irresponsibly. My digital equipment is protected by anti-virus software, and is backed up periodically on an external hard drive. I also keep written information about websites off-line. This is very necessary, because I cannot remember all the various passwords involved and also because equipment failure is a fact of life. How often does a pencil and paper let you down? This goes for my website designer, Charles Paxton of thewebcat.biz.



2.YOUR RIGHT TO HAVE SOME OR All DATA I MAY HOLD ABOUT YOU DELETED


In the event that you’d like some or all your data deleted or your website taken off-line, please make your request to me in writing and I’ll verify the details of your request with you by private phone-call to prevent mistakes, and then serve your request faithfully.


3. YOUR RIGHT TO MOVE YOUR DATA OFF MY SERVER


If you choose to go to another Instructor that is your God-given right and I will facilitate where necessary. In the event that the website moves to another designer or server I have assurances from my website designer of his service in this matter too. Freedom of choice in continuity is important.


4. INFORMATION IN EVENT OF DATA SECURITY BREACH


Data breaches can happen to even large organizations such as banks and govt. offices. If I become aware of theft or loss of your data from hacking or equipment failure or any other possibility I shall endeavour to alert you as soon as possible. Please alert me if you become aware of such a risk, such as a lost notebook or lap-top that would necessarily have security implications for us. You are entitled to be alerted within 72 hrs by GDPR rules, but I’d try to notify you quicker if I can and arrange the resetting of passwords and any other remedial action that might help.


For this reason, if for no other, I recommend that you ‘Friend’ me on Facebook so that we would be able to communicate securely, independently of email.


Please note that you can improve security by not using the same password for different purposes and changing your passwords regularly. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you notice anything suspicious about the operation of this, or any sites that I made or manage. Thank you.


As I said you don’t have to do anything to enable greater rights to the protection of your data, that is granted by law. We still hope that all website visitors will adhere to our terms of use though. You can access them from our Disclaimer Page.


I hope that you can use my website and blog with confidence. I hope to help you too, get certified as a safe driver!


Kind regards,


Kevan Taylor
