theEducationCollective is committed to protecting the privacy and security of personal information.
The information below relates specifically to our role providing online communties to our customers
theEducationCollective does not act as a "data controller." We are not responsible for deciding how personal data is held and used. We provide online systems for various organisations, but those organisations remain both the data controller and the data processor of the information. Our role is to maintain the system to ensure it functions effectively and is secure.
We have no legal basis under which to process data held on behalf of our clients without specific permission and instruction.
We mantain a cloud based platform in which the data is stored. The majority of the information stored is not encrypted to ensure it is available for use readily, however all security information such as passwords, and any sensitive information is encrypted.
theEducationCollective holds the Cyber Essentials certification and all data is held within the EU.
theEducationCollective is not able to respond directly to any requests relating to data held within our platform by any of our clients. All requests need to go directly to the organisation who hold the data.
