Classroom Secrets Kids Privacy and Data Agreement for Home Educators and Schools
In Product Data Collection and Use
Classroom Secrets Kids provides a personalised experience for its users. Account information for Classroom Secrets Kids users including teachers, home educators and children are password-protected so that only the users have access to this personal information. In the case of children, their data can be accessed by the parents, home educators or teachers who have added their accounts. By requiring users to log in, students using Classroom Secrets Kids can access the relevant content and their progress can be monitored.
We recommend that you do not disclose your password to anyone to keep your data secure. Classroom Secrets Kids will never ask you for your password when contacting you by phone or email. Classroom Secrets Kids automatically logs users out after a period of inactivity if they are logged in as an individual user. When you have finished using Classroom Secrets Kids, we recommend that you log out. This is to ensure that others cannot access your account information if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place such as a library.
Classroom Secrets Kids collects the following data and stores it securely:
Classroom Secrets Kids enables teachers and home educating parents/carers to create and set up their own account(s). This allows teachers or parents/carers to upload and manage their own students, set work and monitor progress with added security. We ask home educators for their title, first name, last name, email address, postal address (including their postcode), country and telephone number. We ask teachers/schools for their school name, school address, first name, last name and email address.
At all times, within the definition of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the parent/carer retains the status of Data Controller for the data stored on our cloud service. The data obtained from the home system always remains in the ownership of the parent/carer. Classroom Secrets Kids shall be the Data Processor for the purposes of the GDPR.
When creating a new student account we require a username for each child. This can be set by the teacher or home educator under their own class settings. It is strongly recommended that a secure password is set for each user and that this information is kept secure. Anything uploaded to our web portal is done so securely.

How long does Classroom Secrets Kids keep data?
Classroom Secrets Kids stores data for its users. To ensure that Classroom Secrets Kids does not hold user information in perpetuity, it has set criteria for the deletion of unused data.
Classroom Secrets Kids holds data for Student and Parent/Carer or Admin/Teacher user accounts. If these accounts are left inactive for two years they will be deleted. The definition of inactive is if the user has not logged in (via any route) for two years.
- Score and Results Tracking
Any saved score data and data for pupil accounts will be deleted after seven years on a rolling basis. Even if the student is still active, we will only hold seven years’ worth of results per child. If a student is deleted as a result of being inactive for two years, all score data held for that student is also deleted.
Classroom Secrets Kids has a strict policy of not sharing any information about students with anyone outside the organisation. Please note that the usernames/passwords are controlled by the users themselves. It is each user’s responsibility to make these well-chosen and securely stored.
Classroom Secrets Kids will not share data with third parties, and we will never sell user information or data collected from our website.
