This includes basic information such as your IP address, when you visited, the website from where you came prior to visiting us, the website where you go when you leave our websites, your computer’s operating system, location data, and the type of web browser that you are using. Our websites automatically record this basic information about you.

An application programming interface key (API key) is a code passed in by computer programs calling an application programming interface (API) to identify the calling program, its developer, or its user to the Web site
You can always choose not to provide us with information. However, if you do withhold information, you may not be able to make use of some or all of our websites’ services and features.
Some transactions between you and our websites may involve payment by credit card, debit card, checks, money orders, and/or third party online payment services. In such transactions, we will collect information related to the transaction as part of the course of doing business with you, including your billing address, telephone number, and other information related to the transaction.
We may also obtain information from third parties, for example, our business partners, third-party suppliers, and customers.
WHAT WE DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION
We use your information to operate our business activities. For example, we may use this data to contact you about changes to our website, new services, or special offers, provide you with notices about your account, resolve disputes, troubleshoot issues, enforce our website’s terms and conditions, to carry out our obligations and enforce our rights arising from contracts entered into between you and us, to protect our business interests and the interests and rights of third parties, and to fulfil any other purpose for which you provide data.
As a general rule, we will not give your data to third parties for direct marketing purposes without your permission. However, there are some important exceptions to this rule that are described in the following paragraphs and the paragraphs above.
We may, in our sole discretion, provide information about you to comply with a court order, law or legal process, to law enforcement or other government officials for purposes of fraud investigations, alleged intellectual property infringement, or any other suspected illegal activity or matters that may expose us to legal liability or infringe on our rights or the rights of third parties.
We may provide information about you to a buyer or other successor in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution or other sale or transfer of some or all of our assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation or similar proceeding, in which personal information held by us about our website users is among the assets transferred.
We may disclose aggregate data about our websites’ visitors to advertisers or other third parties.
From time to time, we may use third party suppliers to provide services on our websites. If a supplier wants to collect information about you through our websites, you will be notified. We restrict the way third party suppliers can use your information.
We will share information with third parties to fulfil the explicit purpose for which you provide it. For example, we will post information that you enter into our blog’s comment system to our blog; share information where you give consent; and use information for the purpose that is disclosed by us when you provide the information; we share information with third parties who assist us in operating our business; for example if we use an email-service-provider, we may provide your email to such vendor to assist us in sending email communications.
All information inputted into Reach2Teach Assessment for Inclusion tool (AFIT) is stored in the cloud (Azure, AWS or Linode) and is fully encrypted and secure.
If you have a registered account and are a user of Reach2Teach Assessment for Inclusion Tool (AFIT), all information and data that you enter will remain the property of the school or institution the account is held by. Should you archive data or unsubscribe from AFIT the deleted data will be encrypted in the cloud and lie dormant and remain the property of your school or relevant institution.
In order to help other professional users of AFIT follow the progress of pupils who have been assessed by you we have created a facility to transfer data. This is particularly useful for those responsible for looked after children to be able to keep track of a child when they move to a new area away from their school.
Should a pupil move school or institution, a professional at their new school (providing they are a registered user of AFIT) can search the AFIT database to see if the pupil’s UPN number is registered on AFIT (either an active account or an archived account). No information regarding the pupil is divulged at this stage. The professional can request for the pupil’s account to be released from their old school and transferred to the new. The Team Leader of the old school will receive a notification with the requester’s details and contact information, should they need further information and can either accept or decline the transfer. In the event of the old school no longer being a subscriber of AFIT, the AFIT team will contact the school and gain written consent to transfer the pupil account before any data can be transferred.
You can refuse to agree to a data transfer. In general, however, it is clearly helpful for those taking on responsibility for the welfare of a pupil after your relationship with the pupil has ended that they have as full a picture of the pupil’s history as possible. We therefore hope that you will agree to transfer data when requested.
USER NAMES AND PASSWORDS
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a username and password for access to certain parts of our website, you are responsible for keeping the username and password confidential.

We cannot delete your personal information except by also deleting your user account. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.
