What types of information do we collect?
Information you provide to us
During the Edumate sign-up process as a teacher, you may be asked to provide some basic information such as your first and last name, email address, phone number, school, year group/level, password and role.
You may also be asked to create sub-accounts for your pupils with basic information such as first and last name and school email address. This information will be kept private and will not be shared with any third parties without your consent.
When you contact us using our contact form, we collect name and email address. We also collect any other information you provide to us when you complete the contact form including any optional information, such as phone number or school name.
If you do not provide the mandatory information required by our contact form, you will not be able to submit the contact form and we will not receive your enquiry.
Information collected automatically
We may automatically receive information from your device when you use Edumate. For students, this information is not personally identifiable information. For example, we may receive the duration of time you are using the Edumate website, the type of device you’re using, a device identifier, device event information like crashes, hardware settings, date and time information, and actions performed by you while visiting our website or application.
On our website, we do not collect any kind of personally identifiable information through the use of cookie technology or IP numbers that track the audience. In HTML e-mails that we may send you, we may use technical methods for a number of purposes, including determining whether you have opened or forwarded those e-mails and/or clicked on links in those e-mails. These technical methods may enable us to collect and use information in a form that is personally identifiable.
Does Edumate share information with third parties?
Edumate will not use any personally identifiable information to advertise or market third party services to its users, and does not sell or rent such information. We do use the information you provide to us to improve our offerings and to provide you with the best possible experience on Edumate.
We may share your personally identifiable information with law enforcement officials, or other third parties, when we are compelled to do so by a subpoena, court order, or similar legal procedure. In addition, we may share personally identifiable information if we believe in good faith that the disclosure of such information is necessary to prevent physical harm or financial loss, to report suspected illegal activity, to investigate violations of our Terms and Conditions or to the extent necessary to meet national security requirements.
Edumate shall ensure that a contract is in place between it and any third-party entity or agent that participates in an onward transfer of Personal Data. The contracts specify that such Personal Data may only be processed for limited and specified purposes consistent with the consent provided by the individual and that the recipient will provide the same level of protection as stated in the Principles.
How does Edumate protect the information you provide to us?
We have implemented and maintain information technology security measures designed to protect personally identifiable information from unauthorized disclosure to or access by a third party. Your account and associated information is protected by a password, which you should keep secret at all times. We encrypt password information stored in our databases. Although we make concerted efforts to protect personally identifiable information and maintain security, it is not 100% guaranteed. Outages, attacks, unauthorized use, or other factors may compromise the security of user information at any time. In the event of a security breach, we will notify you by posting on Edumate and notifying you by email using the email address on your account, within 72 hours of becoming aware of such breach.
In addition, Edumate uses personal information only in ways that are compatible with the purposes for which it was collected or subsequently authorized by the individual. Edumate takes reasonable steps to ensure that personal information is relevant to its intended use, accurate, complete and current.
