To achieve this, we have implemented physical, technical, and administrative safeguards to protect our customers' personal information.
We only collect personal information that is necessary for the provision of our services, and we do not sell or rent personal information to third parties.

Once personal information is no longer needed, we will securely dispose of it.
Our customers have the right to access, correct, or delete their personal information. We will promptly notify our customers in the event of a data breach that may compromise their personal information.
We receive and store any information our customers knowingly enter on our Scadsys suite of applications, which may include personal information such as name, username, email address, phone number, profile picture, school and location, and any other information necessary for us to provide our services. Our Scadsys portal displays personal data about children such as profile picture, names, learning and behaviour notes, attendance records, contact information, and other information necessary for the use of our services.

We take information security seriously and protect our customers' Scadsys account personal information with a password. Customers may help protect against unauthorized access to their account and personal information by selecting and protecting their password appropriately and limiting access to their computer and browser by signing off after they have finished accessing their account. However, we cannot guarantee the security of user information due to unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors.
Our customers have the right to access, correct, erase, restrict processing, object, and request a copy of their personal data.
