It is very important that the information we hold about you is accurate and up to date. Please let us know if at any time your personal information changes by emailing us at the above address.

We may collect the following information 

Employee information

This is where you provide us with employee information to allow us to run effective surveys and filters on your behalf. Where you provide us with this information, it is your responsibility to ensure that you have employee consent to provide this to us. The lawful basis for collecting this information is to perform a contract with you.

We may also collect information directly from employees. Where you are an employee and we do this, we may collect information regarding your job role, start date, age, employment type, department information and details of your line manager. This is in order to provide our service to you (a survey) and to allow you to participate. You do not have to provide this information, but we cannot provide the survey without it.

More specifically, we collect the following information:

  • Employees provide information when they complete a survey
  • Employers provide information about their employees such as their start date, date of birth, department or job role, whether they work part or full time, etc. They also provide their work e-mail address so we can send invitations to allow them to complete a survey.
  • We may also automatically collect information when a school registers to use our platform, when we administer the system on behalf of a client school, and to ensure the right access is given to users.
  • We also collect aggregate and summary information relating to employee engagement and wellbeing from freely available resources.

Information provided by employers and employees is used to analyse and report on surveys carried out by client schools. Information is summarised and aggregated with that of all employees and employers. It may be compared with benchmarks and with past or future data.

Information will never be used to identify individuals. All survey responses are anonymous and there is no requirement for employees to complete our surveys.

We share product information with clients and users, including new features and benefits. We ask clients to share feedback on how we might improve our products and services and may also use information to effectively manage any questions or complaints.

We do not collect any Sensitive Data about you. Sensitive Data refers to data that includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health and genetic and biometric data. We do not collect any information about criminal convictions and offences.

Other information we collect:

Identity: This includes first name, surname, username, title, date of birth and gender. We use this information to allow us to provide our products or services to you, and to enable you to create an account on our site. Our lawful basis for collecting this information is to perform a contract with you.

Contact information: This includes your e-mail address, phone number, delivery address and billing address or school address. We use this information to allow us to contact you regarding your purchase of our products or services. Our lawful basis for collecting this information is to perform a contract with you.

Financial: This includes your bank account and payment card details. This is ordinarily not collected by us, as we routinely collect financial details of businesses/schools only. However, on occasion, we may collect financial details of individuals, where an individual’s payment card is used to make a purchase. Regardless, we use a third party payment processor, who will process your payment details in accordance with their privacy policy. We do not capture or store this information.

Transaction: This may include details about payments between us and other details of purchases made by you. As above, this normally relates to transactions of businesses/schools, but on occasion, there may be transactions that pertain to individuals. We collect this information in order to keep track of payments and our contractual obligations to you. Our lawful basis for doing so is our legitimate interest to ensure we are satisfying our contractual obligations with our clients.

Technical: This may include your login data, usage of our site, internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and version, browser plug-in types and versions, time zone setting and location, operating system and platform and other technology on the devices you use to access this site. This information is aggregated, and does not identify you personally. We use this information to improve our website experience. Our lawful basis for doing so is out legitimate interest to continuously improve the website we provide

Marketing and Communications: This includes your email address and preferences in receiving marketing communications, or information regarding competitions, prize draws, promotions or surveys, from us and our third parties. We will always ask for your consent before adding you to our marketing lists or providing your information to third parties to market to you. Our lawful basis for processing this information is consent. Or we will send you emails where you click links to access information from us. This is based on our legitimate interest to provide you with information we believe you have an interest in receiving.

We also make it easy to opt-out of communications by providing direct opportunities on the emails or texts we send.

Where you opt out of receiving our marketing communications, this will not apply to personal data provided to us as a result of a product/service purchase, warranty registration, product/service experience or other transactions or where we have a legal obligation to retain your financial transaction data.

We may use this for

  • Internal record keeping.
  • To improve our products and services.
