Due to the nature of the services provided by Dr. Du Education, some of the information we collect may be sensitive information, including details about an individual’s race or ethnic background. It is not common practice for Dr. Du Education to collect information about an individual’s medical history, religion, political opinion, sexual preference or criminal record, unless such information is required in order to process a student’s application for admission, enrolment and education.

We generally collect personal information directly from the individual concerned, although there may be occasions when information is collected from third parties, such as a family member who contacts us on the individual’s behalf, from our contractors who supply services to us or from a publicly maintained record. If an individual does not provide the information requested by us, we may not be able to provide them with our services.

If you provide personal information to us about someone else, you must ensure that you are entitled to disclose that information to us and that, without us taking any further steps required by privacy laws, we may collect, use and disclose such information for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. For example, you should take reasonable steps to ensure the individual concerned is aware of the various matters detailed in this Privacy Policy, including our identity and how to contact us, the purposes for which we collect personal information, our information disclosure practices, the individual’s right to obtain access to the information we hold about them, and the consequences for the individual if the information is not provided.

It was a very unique experience that was instrumental in developing my skills as a student. During my three years at Dr. Du Education I have gained a deeper appreciation of the principles behind mathematics rather than just the formulae we are expected to remember. The higher expectations really pushed me to work harder and more efficiently, benefiting my studies outside of Maths as well. I have really enjoyed my time at Dr. Du and would not trade it for anything.
