As such, Dukes Education Ltd. is not liable for any applicant’s unsuccessful application. Although we strive to ensure the accuracy of our information, we cannot guarantee it and Dukes Medical Applications accepts no liability whatsoever if the information it provides proves to be incorrect or if an applicant acts differently to how he or she would have acted without the services of Dukes Medical Applications. Your statutory rights are unaffected. Should you have any questions in regard to our Terms & Conditions, please contact us at our registered offices.

Wherever we rely on your consent, you will always be able to withdraw that consent, although we may have other legal grounds for processing your personal data for other purposes, such as those set out above. In some cases, we are able to send you direct marketing without your consent, where we rely on our legitimate interests. You have an absolute right to opt-out of direct marketing, at any time. You can do this by following the instructions in the communication where this is an electronic message, updating your preferences in any account or by contacting us using the details set out below.
