  1. account set up and administration;
  2. personalisation of content;

If you are not satisfied with the way that we will use your Data, you have the right to object in certain circumstances (see the section headed "Your rights" below).

Before we send you newsletters via e-mail, we will ask for your explicit consent via an opt-in; that is, you will need to take positive and affirmative action when consenting by, for example, checking a tick box that we will provide.

If you have consented to receiving newsletters you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time.

To find out how to withdraw your consent, see the section headed “Your rights” below.

Who can access what data

The three categories of data that can be accessed by Users are Account Data, Class Data and Results Data.

If you have set up your account yourself, or have opted to take control of your account then your Account Data can only be seen and managed by you. Otherwise your Account Data can be seen and managed by the individual who set up your account for you (the Account Manager) and you will only be able to see, but not manage your Account Data.

Class Data can be seen and managed by the teacher or parent who has set up the class, or by the teacher or tutor who has listed you in their class at the request of and with the permission of your Account Manager. Being a member of a class does not allow a Class Manager access to your Account Data unless the Class Manager is also your Account Manager.

Results Data can be seen by you and by any Class Manager whose class you are listed in (note that you can only be listed in a class at the request of and with the permission of your Account Manager).

If you are your own Account Manager then you have control of what classes you are listed in and therefore of who can view your Results Data. You can also choose to opt-out of a class at any time.

If you did not set up your account yourself then you will automatically be listed in at least one class belonging to your Account Manager. If you wish to opt-in or opt-out of other classes, then you can only do this by sending an appropriate request to your Account Manager. Your Account Manager cannot add you to, or remove you from, classes managed by another User unless you have made such a request.

Leaderboards:

If your points for a particular activity, or your cumulative points for a set of activities, are sufficiently high, your score will automatically be listed on the appropriate leaderboard if such a leaderboard exists. All leaderboards are accessible to all logged in Users and will display the top results in descending order. Leaderboards will not display the identity of the Users who have achieved the scores unless the User is their own Account Manager and they have given explicit consent for their identity to be displayed. Where this explicit consent has been given, it is the Screen Name and not the First Name or Last Name that will be displayed. Users can withdraw their consent at any time after which their identity will be removed from all relevant leaderboards.

Who we share Data with

We may share your Data with the following groups of people for the following reasons:

  1. any of the administrators of one of our other websites – so that you can use the same account across all of our sites;
  2. our employees, agents and/or professional advisors – so that they can help implement the service and offer appropriate support to users;
  3. third party payment providers who process payments made over the Website – so that subscription payments and/or other payments can be processed;

in each case, in accordance with this privacy notice.

Keeping Data secure

We will use technical and organisational measures to safeguard your Data, for example:

  1. access to your account is controlled by a password and a user ID that is unique to you;
  2. we store your Data on secure servers within the UK;
  3. all traffic and passwords are encrypted.

Technical and organisational measures include measures to deal with any suspected data breach. If you suspect any misuse or loss or unauthorised access to your Data, please let us know immediately by contacting us via our Contact Form on this Website.
