Secure Schools’ Privacy Policy

Updated 21 June 2024


Secure Schools Inc. ("Secure Schools", "we", "us" or "our") respects your privacy and is  committed to protecting your personal information. This privacy policy explains how we  collect, use, and disclose personal information from and about our customers,  prospective customers, and website visitors (each referred to as “you”) when you visit  our website, use our web application, contact us, or interact with us at any other location  where this privacy policy is made available to you (collectively, the “Services”). This  privacy policy also informs you of your rights and choices with respect to the information  we collect about you.  

This privacy policy is provided in a layered format so you can click through to the  specific areas set out below. Please see the appendix of this Privacy Policy for our Notice for Our California Customers, which includes information about rights you may  have pursuant to applicable law. 

1. Important Information And Who We Are

We are a business-to-business (B2B) company, meaning our customers are businesses  and not consumers. Please note that we may collect, use, and share information about  you as a service provider to our business customers; this privacy policy does not apply  to that collection, use, or sharing (our legal obligations are instead set out in the contract  between us and the relevant data controller). For the purposes of our Services that are  covered by this privacy policy, we are a data controller of your personal information. 

By engaging with Secure Schools online and through other channels, you agree and  acknowledge our collection, use, and disclosure practices, and other activities, as  described in this privacy policy. If you do not agree with the practices disclosed in this  privacy policy, discontinue use of the Services. 

2. The Personal Information We Collect About You

Personal information means any information about an individual from which that person  can be identified (directly and indirectly). It does not include data where the identity has  been removed (de-identified data). 

We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal information about you  that we have grouped together as follows: 

  • Identity Data includes first name, maiden name, last name, username or similar  identifier, marital status, title, date of birth and gender.

  • Contact Data includes billing address, delivery address, email address and  telephone numbers. 

  • Financial Data includes bank account and payment card details. 

  • Transaction Data includes details about payments to and from you and other  details of products and services you have purchased from us. 

  • Technical Data includes internet protocol (IP) address, your login data, browser  type and version, time zone setting and location, browser plug-in types and  versions, operating system and platform, and other technology on the devices you use to access this website. 

  • Profile Data includes your username and password, purchases or orders made  by you, your interests, preferences, feedback and survey responses. 

  •  Usage Data includes information about how you use our website, products and  services. 

  • Marketing and Communications Data includes your preferences in receiving  marketing from us and our third parties and your communication preferences. 

    We also collect, use and share Aggregated Data such as statistical or demographic  data for any purpose. Aggregated Data could be derived from your personal information but is not considered personal information in law as this data will not directly or indirectly  reveal your identity. For example, we may aggregate your Usage Data to calculate the  percentage of users accessing a specific website feature. However, if we combine or  connect Aggregated Data with your personal information so that it can directly or  indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as personal information which will be  used in accordance with this privacy policy. 

If you fail to provide personal data

Where we need to collect personal information by law, or under the terms of a contract  we have with you, and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able  to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to  provide you with goods or services). In this case, we may have to cancel a product or  service you have with us but we will notify you if this is the case at the time.

Secure Schools’ use and transfer to any other app of information received from Google  APIs will adhere to Google API Services User Data Policy, including the Limited Use requirements. 

6. International Transfers

Many of our external third parties are based outside the EEA so their processing of your  personal information will involve a transfer of data outside the EEA. 

Whenever we transfer your personal information out of the EEA, we ensure a similar  degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards  is implemented: 

Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved by the  European Commission which give personal information the same protection it has in  Europe. For further details, see European Commission: Model contracts for the transfer  of personal information to third countries.

Please review our EEA Privacy Policy or contact us if you want further information on  the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal information out of  the EEA. 

7. Data Security

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorized way,  altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal information to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal information on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality. 

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal information breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so. 

8. Data Retention

We will only retain your personal information for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal,  regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. We may retain your personal information for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you. 

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements. 

By law, we have to keep basic information about our customers (including Contact,  Identity, Financial and Transaction Data) for six years after they cease being customers for tax purposes. 

In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see your legal rights below for further information.
