Teacher Tapp collects data with the aim of helping the schools community get smarter and finding the answers to questions we’ve long wanted to know.
We aim to do this in a fair, transparent and ethical way.
Your personal information will not be passed to a third party organisation.
Any information we gain about you is available for you to see. Under the Data Protection Act you can ask to see what information we hold about you, request changes to the data, or instruct us to delete it.
Why we collect your information
We collect your email address as a form of personal identification in case you change your phone and in case we need to contact you about the app. We collect your school name and postcode as a way of capturing information about your location and school type. Through the app we also collect information about your opinions so we can share teachers’ collective views on issues. Results of questions are available each day on the app. We also publish a free weekly blog analysing results, and we plan to take part in deeper research for both academic purposes and at the request of other educational organisations.
Storing your information
We have procedures and security features in place to keep your data secure. Your personal information is kept separately from app question answers. We have strict controls over who can see the data.
We operate on the basis of consent given at the time of sign-up. If you wish to withdraw consent please remove the app. You can also instruct us to delete your data by emailing email@example.com.
If you have any further questions, comments, ideas, surprises, requests, gifts to give us, please send us an email.
You are also able to complain to the Information Commissioners’ Office if you believe we are doing something wrong but we’d prefer it if you emailed us first. We do really want to get this right and are happy to correct mistakes.
