4. What Personal Data does Schoolzine collect?

Schoolzine collect information via our website, or where you otherwise provide us with information, including when you enter into Schoolzine Limited promotions or complete Schoolzine Limited surveys or contact forms. The only personal information we collect is what you volunteer to tell us about yourself.

We may also collect information from you via our website which is not personally identifiable. For example, we may track information about the date and time you access a site, the type of browser you use and the web site from which you connected to the site. Our website collects this information by depositing "cookies" in your computer. For further details, view our cookie policy.

5. How does Schoolzine use Personal Data?

Under the GDPR, Schoolzine must always have a lawful basis for using personal data. This may be because the data is necessary for performance of a contract with you, because you have consented to the use of your personal data, or because it is in our legitimate business interests to use it. Your personal data may be used for one of the following purposes:

With your permission and/or where permitted by law, we may also use your personal data for marketing purposes, which may include contacting you by email, telephone or post with information, news, and offers on our services. You will not be sent any unlawful marketing or spam. We will always work to fully protect your rights and comply with our obligations under the GDPR and the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003, and you will always have the opportunity to opt-out.

6. How Long Will You Keep My Personal Data?

Schoolzine will not keep your personal data for any longer than is necessary in light of the reasons for which it was first collected.

When cancelling a subscription with Schoolzine, we will provide reasonable time and access to produce any required back-ups of content and data.

Refer to Part 3 for further details on your right to be forgotten.

7. How and Where Do You Store or Transfer My Personal Data?

The security of your personal data is essential to us, and to protect your data, we take a number of important measures, including the following:

Schoolzine may be required to process, store or transfer basic contact details in countries that are not part of the European Economic Area (the “EEA” consists of all EU member states, plus Norway, Iceland, and Liechtenstein). These are known as “third countries” and may not have data protection laws that are as strong as those in the UK and/or the EEA. This means that we will take additional steps in order to ensure that your personal data is treated just as safely and securely as it would be within the UK and under the GDPR as follows.

8. Do You Share My Personal Data?

In some limited circumstances, we may be legally required to share certain personal data, which might include yours, if we are involved in legal proceedings or complying with legal obligations, a court order, or the instructions of a government authority.

Schoolzine may be required to disclose information to service providers or agents who act as sub-processors on our behalf in providing systems support for our services.

Accordingly, these service providers or agents will only process and store the basic contact details outlined below:

Service providers may include:

If any of your personal data is required by a third party, as described above, we will take steps to ensure that your personal data is handled safely, securely, and in accordance with your rights, our obligations, and the third party’s obligations under the law, as described above in Part 7.

If any personal data is transferred outside of the EEA, we will take suitable steps in order to ensure that your personal data is treated just as safely and securely as it would be within the UK and under the GDPR, as explained above in Part 7.

9. How Can I Access My Personal Data?

You may request a copy of the data that Schoolzine stores and the details within. This is known as a “subject access request”.

All subject access requests can be made in writing and sent to the email or postal addresses shown in Part 10. To make this as easy as possible for you, a Subject Access Request Form is available for you to use. You do not have to use this form, but it is the easiest way to tell us everything we need to know to respond to your request as quickly as possible.

There is no fee for your request unless it is deemed as ‘manifestly unfounded or excessive’ (for example, if you make repetitive requests) by Schoolzine, at which point a fee may be charged to cover Schoolzine’s administrative costs in responding.

Schoolzine will respond to your subject access request without undue delay and resolve your request within 30 days. If your request is more complex, more time may be required. You will be kept fully informed of our progress and timeframes required.

10. How Do I Contact You?
