What information does SammTalk save?
SammTalk tries to minimise stored personal information. As of today, SammTalk stores necessary information of registered teachers, parents, and students. This information may include names, email address, ages of students (average of class, not individual dates of birth), school location details and contact information, user names and passwords, average proficiency level of students in each class (selected by teacher, not attached to any one student), number of students in a class, and the exact time of a class.
We need to collect and process personal information marked as ‘required’ on our forms in order to provide the requested services, or because we are legally required to do so. If you do not provide the information that we request, we may not be able to provide the requested services.
What is my information used for?
Information is used to facilitate the partnering classes between schools and to place students into learning groups. It is of course voluntary to consent and consent can be withdrawn at any time by contacting SammTalk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
