Removal of Data

If you would like your data removed from Scils, contact us and request this. Note that organisations use the Scils website as a platform for recording training that takes place within an organisation. With this in mind we will always leave the forename, surname, learning completed and link to the organisation in place so that organisations can access historic data.
