“The Data Protection Officer services we receive from Firebird are outstanding! Their expert and personal service is invaluable to us as a company, particularly when dealing with due diligence questions from our customers. The data protection laws are complex, but Firebird cuts through the jargon and misconceptions and has helped us build a tailor made compliance framework, which gives us and our customers the reassurance we need that we are meeting our legal obligations. We highly recommend their services to other companies”.
Judith Groves, Director, Like Minds UK
"When we thought about outsourcing our DPO function I had no idea where to start. After some significant research, we could not be happier with the service from Firebird. Our DPO is readily available to answer our queries and has been remarkably supportive in providing tools and templates to smooth the process. We are a large secondary school in Peterborough, with very limited resources, and I could not have found a more cost effective solution to this important part of our compliance work.
Darren Ayling, Headteacher, The King's School (Secondary), Peterborough
“The quality of DPO service we have received has been excellent. Whilst I was initially sceptical regarding the benefit of buying in a full GDPR support package, it has proven its value on a number of occasions and has mitigated the GDPR compliance workload for the school. We have benefitted from our DPO's broad experience and pragmatic approach.”
Ben Brook, Director, Queen Elizabeth School, Academy (Secondary), Mid Devon
“Our DPO is so much more than just a Data Protection Officer. She has provided us with a complete GDPR service, not only did she ensure our policies, privacy notices and consent letters were lawful, she also provided us with a toolkit of templates to use, audits, advice, staff training and reports for governors to ensure we were compliant. Amber’s approach is proactive, driving us forward to ensure we did not become complacent, her approach is very professional yet user friendly, so we are able to take manage our SARs and DPIAs without being phased!”
Business Manager, Federation
“Absolutely worth every penny! We will definitely be purchasing this service again next year”
Headteacher, Primary School
“Firebird has made the process less complicated, provided documents, advice and reassurance. I realise this is quite a cost to a school, especially with reduced budgets, but it’s worth it for peace of mind and the back up in case of a breach.”
Administrator, Primary School
“Our DPO has always been easy to contact either by phone or e-mail and has always responded to me within the same working day. Very efficient. Without Firebird's support and guidance, I do not believe we would know what needs to be done in order to be compliant.”
Headteacher, Primary School
The training provided to all our staff was excellent and vital in raising their awareness of the new legislation. The DPO has provided excellent support to the College and assisted us in becoming ready for the introduction of GDPR.
Headteacher, Secondary School

"Very informative presented in a clear and practical way. I have gone from feeling apprehensive to excited about GDPR (if that is possible!)".
"I feel that we were very lucky to have Amber as the presenter for the day. She handled a very dry subject in a lively and engaging manner. I feel far more empowered to deal with GDPR in the long term."

"Excellent, I left with a clear view of what we needed to do to be GDPR ready -thank you!"
