Why do we collect information?

1. Our primary goal in collecting personal information from you is to provide you with a smooth and efficient service which meets your needs and that of you / your child’s school as quickly as possible and to continue improving our service for future customers.

2. We automatically track certain information about you which will be used for research to better understand our customer base. Any information will be compiled and analysed, not on an individual basis, but an aggregate basis.

3. Where you decide to make regular contributions to the scheme using Direct Debits from your bank account we collect additional information including your full name, address, bank sort code and account number. If you send us correspondence such as e-mails or letters we will normally keep that on a file specific to you.

Our use of your information

We may use the personal information supplied to improve our marketing and promotional efforts. We may also use the information to deliver information to you which may be of interest to you, i.e. related recent products and services. From time to time we may also use your personal information to carry out market research to improve the quality of our service to you and to your or your child’s school. By accepting the agreement for your or your child’s school technology scheme you expressly agree to use this information unless you have specifically completed the option box not to send you further information.

We could share our data concerning you with our subsidiaries, joint venture companies or holding companies should we be purchased by another business or merge with them. However to the extent that these entities are getting access to the information they will treat it at least as protectively as they treat information they obtain from their own users. We usually require our subsidiaries and joint ventures to follow privacy practices no less protective than our own.

At times we may be required by law to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we believe that disclosure is necessary for the public interest.
