Build your CPD Map to track where you are and where you're going!
If you want to get the most out of CPD Tag, you can set up your own CPD Map. You start by setting up the areas of your professional life you want to develop. These might relate to a technical aspect of your job, the management of your team, or administration of your company.
The next step is to identify the skills or abilities you think you need to develop to support the professional area. In a technical area these might relate to obtaining a high degree of proficiency in a certain type of technical work. A more management-base skill might relate to learning understanding legal obligations, or developing interpersonal skills.
The last step is to set measurable goals which will develop the skills they relate to. These might be achieving accreditations or qualifications, or some other way to validate that a skill is developing as you would hope.

Whether you’re part of a small business or professional trade body, any organisation can benefit from registering on CPD Tag.
Keep your members up to date with upcoming CPD activities and the latest resources
Create CPD events and build up a library of CPD resources for your members. Your members can then see what events are coming up, pledge attendance to your events, and scan these straight into their CPD records.
Streamline your Processes
CPD Tag will automatically create CPD certificates for attendees that want them, so you won’t have to do anything after the event. Even attendees that aren’t using CPD tag can directly download CPD certificates at the event by scanning the QR code with any scanning app.
Helpful Attendance Data
Create different types of attendee, such as ‘in-person’ and ‘online’ to get a breakdown of the different types – both pledged and validated attendees. You can also receive feedback directly from attendees to help guide future events.
You'll find the answers to some frequently asked questions below. If you have any other questions feel free to email us at email@example.com .
Do you have to pay to use CPD Tag?
No. CPD Tag is completely free for individuals and organisations. The intention is that it will always be free to use, and free from any advertising. We may implement a way to make donations later if needed, however these would always be made on an entirely voluntary basis.
Will data be shared with anyone?
No information you add to your CPD Tag account will ever be shared with any third parties, except for the purpose of running the platform - for example, the server hosting the site is owned by a company (currently GoDaddy) we pay to host it. Information is shared with them by necessity, but would never be shared with anyone else for any other purpose. In addition, CPD Tag will only ever record information you explicitly add to your account for the purposes of tracking your CPD. No other information will ever be recorded other than the information you can see in your account. If you close your account all information realted to you will be permanently removed from the server.
To What Extent can I Use CPD Tag
You can use CPD Tag to whatever extent you require. For example, you could purely use it as an easy means of tabulating the CPD events you have attended. Or you could use all of the tools available to build a full CPD Map with professional areas, skills and goals, along with your professional profile and a portfolio of your projects. It's totally up to you.
What if there is no CPD Tag for an event
You can manually add a new CPD activity to your record at any time. You just create a new 'event attendance' activity and add the details. You could also ask the host organisation to register on CPD Tag to make it easier in future for their attendees to add their events to their CPD records.
How do I register a new organisation
Once you have registered your own user account using the register form above, you can register a new organisation in the Admin Area. In the Admin -> Organisations section there is a button marked 'Register a New Organisation'. This will open the form to create a new organisation. There is also loads of help documentation in the system, so you should find all the help you need there. You can have a play with the Live Demo by clicking the 'Launch Live Demo' further up the page.

|In the context of the GDPR, Personal data is information that relates to an identified or identifiable individual, such as your name. In CPD Tag, the following pieces of potentially personal information are collected:
|Your name: CPD Tag asks you for your name in order to be able to address you by your chosen name when using the system, to attach this information to output you may choose to generate (such as your CPD Record or CPD Certificates), and to be listed as a potential or actual attendee to a CPD event. This information does not need to be accurate, and you are at liberty to choose any collection of alphanumeric characters by which you wish to be addressed. For example, if you prefer to use an alias, there will be no detriment to the functionality which you will experience as a CPD Tag user.
|Your email address: CPD Tag asks for an email address primarily as a means to correlate the correct CPD Tag account with the user when logging into the platform. It can also be used to send notifications to the user (such as if an event that a user has pledged to attend changes to location), however this functionality can be disabled within the platform.
|CPD Activity record: The primary function of CPD Tag is to build your CPD Activity record, by either manual entry of activity information, or by scanning QR Codes at CPD Tagged events. Each record contains details about the activity, such as where and when it took place, details about the activity itself, and any debrief information you choose to enter, such as what you learned, and how this aligns with your goals. The collection of this information is necessary to provide you with the core functionality of the platform – i.e. to allow you to view this information in the future, and create a PDF containing it for distribution, should you wish to. Its collection is entirely at the discretion of the user, and without it the platform cannot provide the user with the core functionality it was created to provide.
|Profile Information, CPD Map and Portfolio: CPD Tag provides the functionality to add information relating to your professional life, such as your Education, Career, Certifications/ Accreditations, Memberships and Voluntary Roles. CPD Tag also provides the functionality to add potentially personal information to the CPD Map and Portfolio areas of the platform. This information is collected purely as a convenient location for you to be able to access it in the future should you wish to, and to be able to create a PDF containing it, again should you wish to. Its collection is entirely voluntary, and is not needed for the core functionality of the platform, which is to keep track of CPD activities.
|Other than the information and purposes for collecting it outlined above, CPD Tag does not collect any other personal data. No data processing is undertaken other than that specifically required to provide the functionality outlined above. This is reflected in our Terms and Conditions, for example in section 4.1 under User Data, the following is stated:
|"The User hereby grants to the Provider a non-exclusive license to copy, reproduce, store, distribute, publish, export, adapt, edit and translate the User Data to the extent reasonably required for the performance of the Provider's obligations and the exercise of the Provider's rights under the Agreement. "
|The first part of this paragraph describes to processes necessary to make a web-based platform function by allowing us on behalf of the user to add, edit and remove from a database the user’s information, and create a PDF containing it on behalf of the user for example. The text in bold makes clear that this is only done for CPD Tag (the Provider) to provide the functionality (the performance of our obligations) which we have said we will provide, along with any rights CPD Tag has (such as the need to satisfy any statutory obligations).
|Paragraph 4.1 goes on to say:
|"The User also grants to the Provider the right to sub-license these rights to its hosting, connectivity and telecommunications service providers, subject to any express restrictions elsewhere in the Agreement."
|This is necessary as CPD Tag does not own any servers itself, and so in order to provide the functionality of the platform we need to be able to pass these rights to a web-hosting company for example.
|For context, maintaining the servers that host website content and associated databases requires significant resource, and unlike large commercial entities, CPD Tag as a non-profit goodwill initiative does not have access to that level of resource. As such, this service is provided by a company called GoDaddy, which is one of the largest web-hosting companies on the planet. GoDaddy is ISO 27001 certified, and is able to facilitate websites being fully compliant with the GDPR by hosting data in centers located in EEA (European Economic Area) countries, which in this case of CPD Tag are located in France. Hosting data in an EEA country means that a data transfer between it and the UK is deemed compliant under the GDPR.

|For the avoidance of any doubt, the only purpose CPD Tag collects personal information is to provide users with the functionality that they have sought by registering to use the site in the first place.
|Legal Basis for Collection
|The GDPR requires anyone processing personal data (such as your name) to have a legal basis for doing so. In the case of CPD Tag, the relevant legal basis is that of consent, i.e. the user explicitly gives consent for us to do so, so that we are able to provide the functionality that the platform provides.
|In our case, the consent is given by the individual at the time of registration. As per the requirements, we don’t use any pre-ticked boxes or any other mechanisms which avoid the need for explicit consent to be given. We have made every effort to make clear to a user registering to use CPD Tag that that they are explicitly giving consent for us to process their personal information so that we can provide the functionality that the platform provides.
|As our basis is consent, this can also be withdrawn by the individual at any time. Closing your CPD Tag account by using the tools provided on the platform will be taken as an immediate withdrawal of your consent. At this time, any personal information held about the individual will be permanently removed from the servers powering the platform. If a user is unable to gain access to the platform for whatever reason, they can email us at email@example.com to request their account be closed. We will then do it for you, and confirm to you that it has been done.
|The GDPR asks that we avoid making consent a precondition of a service. In this regard, we only seek your consent as necessary to provide the core functionality of the platform. Where this can be avoided it has been, for example those who do not wish to register for a CPD Tag account can still have access to some of its functionality, such as instant downloads of CPD Attendance Certificates, and viewing the details of events they are attending on their phone by scanning a CPD Tag QR Code.
|We hope that this demonstrates one of the key principle on which the platform is founded: that it is our intention to provide a beneficial service wherever possible to anyone endeavouring to undertake CPD activities, regardless of whether they register for a CPD Tag account or not.
