Boardworks Education (“we, “us”) take data security and user privacy very seriously. We collect data via some of our products and websites. This policy outlines how we use and store information on schools, districts and other organizations, their staff and students (collectively, User(s)) and ensure that user data remains secure.

MyWorks Platform – myworkslearning.com

We only collect data relating to Administrative Users (Teachers) via the MyWorks platform.

What Administrative User data is stored on MyWorks? 

Administrative User data stored in MyWorks is the Administrative User’s name and email address. We require each Administrative User account to have an email address to allow passwords to be reset and to allow us to communicate information about changes to MyWorks. We also store a teaching subject if we know it, to enable us to send curriculum-specific communications. Administrative User accounts can also have administrator privileges, which give additional rights including the ability to reset the passwords of other Administrative Users at their school.

Who can access the data? 

User data is only accessible to:

  • Administrative Users with administrative privileges on behalf of, or under the direction of, the school, district or other similar organization using the platform.
  • our employees; and
  • the employees of the company who develops the software platform.
  • Our employees who have access to User data are trained on their responsibilities in line with current Data Protection Legislation.

    How do we use the data we store? 

    We collect information about Users so that we can:

  • deliver the products and services (which includes the MyWorks platform and any reports requested by authorized Admin Users);
  • identify Users and manage any accounts they hold with us;
  • let Users know about other products or services that may be of interest to them —see ‘User email communication’ section below;
  • detect and prevent fraud;
  • customize MyWorks and its content to Users’ particular preferences;
  • notify Users of any changes to MyWorks or to our services that may affect Users; and
  • improve our services.
  • The legal basis for our processing of Users’ personal data is, as applicable, where it is necessary for the performance of a contract, in order to comply with our legal obligations and/or with Users’ consent.

    Where is the data stored? 

    All User data on MyWorks is kept on a secure database and server. All data is stored within the US.

    Keeping User Data secure

    We will use technical and organizational measures to safeguard each User’s personal data e.g. by storing personal data on secure servers.

    While we will use all reasonable efforts to safeguard Users’ personal data, Users acknowledge that the use of the internet is not entirely secure and for this reason we cannot guarantee the security or integrity of any personal data that are transferred from User or to Users via the internet. If you have any particular concerns about your information, please contact us.

    How long do we keep personal information?

    We keep your personal information for as long as we need to for the purposes for which it was collected or (if longer) for any period for which we are required to keep personal information to comply with our legal and regulatory requirements.

    What rights do you have?

    Users are responsible for ensuring that information provided to us is accurate, complete and up-to-date.

    Users have a number of rights in relation to their personal data, these include the right to:

  • find out how we process your data;
  • request that their personal data is corrected if it is incorrect or inaccurate;
  • obtain restriction on our, or object to, processing of their personal data;
  • if we are relying on consent, Users can withdraw their consent to our processing of their personal data (including any direct marketing);
  • obtain a copy of the personal data we process concerning themselves. We may charge a small fee of up to £10.00 towards the cost of administering any request made and we will take steps to verify the User’s identity before responding to their request.
