Providing our educational services to children around the world and offering young students equal opportunities in learning and education is one of Express Publishing's most valuable principles.
Accordingly, Express Publishing is committed to protecting children in the most efficient way as well as ensuring that their rights and privacy are being respected and safeguarded.
To that end, we have designed certain mechanisms and implemented technical measures, so as to be sure that parents are aware of their children's interactions and their rights while using our services.
Special Note to Teachers: All teachers of young students, when acting on behalf of their students, are strongly advised to have evidently secured the explicit consent of their students' parents and/or guardians, before submitting personal data of their students to Express Publishing.
In order to verify that the consent is given in a legitimate and appropriate way, certain requirements may be requested on your behalf or certain actions may need to be taken, that will guarantee the identity of the person giving the consent and that this person is authorised to act on behalf of the child (parent, legal guardian etc.) and provide their consent. Such additional measures may indicatively include the use of Two Factor Authentication Tools, verification via email and/or text messages, direct communication etc.
If you fail to follow such procedures or if we have reasons to believe that the person acting is not authorised to do so or is attempting to mislead or provide false information, we have the right to deny access to our services.
The information we request is the minimum possible so as to secure the highest level of protection for your child's personal data.
Such information may include your child's full name, date of birth, username and password and their contact details, for example, an email account.
It is also possible that we collect other personal information for your child, especially when using our services, such as IP addresses, information about the device they are using, geographical locations, educational level and status, activities and preferences about products and services when using our website and applications etc.
All this information is considered as personal data of your child and subsequently comes under the regulations regarding the protection of personal data and is treated as such, especially with regards to sensitive groups like children.
We will never disclose and/or sell any of your child's personal data to any third party without your explicit permission and consent, unless we are obliged to do so due to a court decision or a law enforcement.
However, due to the fact that our services are usually offered not only directly by Express Publishing but through a network of associates, such as language schools, educational institutions, private tutors and other third parties, we are obliged to share and transfer your child's personal data to such associates in order to be able to provide the full range of our services.
These partners, associates and/or providers are obliged to treat your child's personal data in confidentiality as well as to abide by the applicable legislation regarding the protection of personal data.
