Pedagoog is committed to maintaining your confidence and trust with respect to your privacy. Please read this privacy policy carefully to understand how we collect, use and share your personal information data.


This privacy policy applies when you visit or use our websites and other services, including events, that refer or link to this privacy policy (each, a “Service”). It also describes your choices regarding use, access and correction of your personal information. If you do not agree with the terms of this privacy policy, do not access or use the Services. This privacy policy may be supplemented by additional privacy statements, terms or notices provided to you or in the case of School Users to your School or Other Institutional Subscribers.

This privacy policy does not apply to any third party applications or software that integrates with the Services, or any other third party products, services or businesses (“Third Party Services”). In addition, a separate agreement may govern delivery, access and use of the Services (the “User Agreement”), including the processing of any content submitted through your use of the Services (collectively, “User Data”). User Data may include, among other things, your name, user name, email address, academic or other professional information, digital object identifier, and other contact and demographic information when you register and set up an account, fill out a form, submit a comment or contact us by e-mail or other means. The School or Other Institution or Organisation (e.g., your employer or another entity or person) that entered into the User Agreement (“User”) controls the content submitted through the Services and any associated User Data.


We collect information about you in three ways: directly from your input, from third-party sources, and through automated technologies.

Your Input – information you provide to us: The types of personal information that we collect directly from you depends on the content and features of the Service you use and how you otherwise interact with us and may include:

We cannot control the actions of other Users with whom you may choose to share your information or of the Admin User at your employer School or Other Institution. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that your information will not be viewed by any authorised or unauthorised persons. You understand that when you use public areas of the Services, your information will be available to other Users and in some cases may be publicly available. We recommend you be cautious about giving out personal information to others or sharing personal information in public areas, whether designated as public or private. We are not responsible for the personal information you choose to share in these public areas or for the actions of any third parties with whom you share personal information.


The Service may also automatically collect information (‘metadata’) about how you and your device interact with the Service, such as:


Typically, Third Party Services are software that integrates with our Services.  The provider of a Third Party Service may share certain information with Pedagoog. Individual Users should check the privacy settings and notices in these Third Party Services to understand what data may be disclosed to Pedagoog. When a Third Party Service is enabled, Pedagoog is authorised to connect and access other information made available to Pedagoog in accordance with our agreement with the Third Party Provider. We do not, however, receive or store passwords for any of these Third Party Services when connecting them to the Services.


We collect data through our servers and the use of cookies and other technologies. You can control cookies through your browser’s settings and other tools. However, if you choose to block certain cookies, you may not be able to register, login, or access certain parts or make full use of the Service. We use cookies to track the website(s) use to help us learn how well the Services perform. We also use cookies to understand, improve and research products, features and services, including to create logs and record when you access the Services from different devices, such as your work computer or your mobile device.


This Section describes how Pedagoog may share and disclose information. Depending on how you interact with us and the Service, we share your personal information in the following ways and contexts.

User Consent:

We use information to fulfil requests made by you, such as to:

Manage the Service:

We use information to provide, update, maintain and protect our Services, websites and business. This includes use of information to:

Manage Security:

We use information to enforce our rights, prevent fraud, and for safety and to protect and defend the rights, property or safety of Pedagoog or third parties, including enforcing contracts or policies, or in connection with investigating and preventing fraud or security issues, in the following ways:

Provide technical, product and other support and help to keep the Service working, safe and secure, for example to:

Legal and Corporate Compliance:
Other Legitimate Interests:

If information is aggregated or de-identified so it is no longer reasonably associated with an identified or identifiable natural person, Pedagoog may use it for any business purpose. Users determine their own policies and practices for the sharing and disclosure of information, and Pedagoog does not control how they or any other third parties choose to share or disclose information.


We retain your information for as long as necessary to provide the Service and fulfil the transactions you have requested, or for other essential purposes such as complying with our legal obligations, maintaining the Service, resolving disputes, maintaining security, detecting and preventing fraud and abuse, enforcing our agreements and other legitimate interests.


We work hard to protect information you provide from loss, misuse, and unauthorised access or disclosure. We take into account the sensitivity of the information we collect, process and store, and the current state of technology. We follow generally accepted standards to protect the information submitted to us, both during transmission and once it is received. If you have any questions about the security of your information, you can contact us at  

Given the nature of communications and information processing technology, Pedagoog cannot guarantee that information, during transmission through the Internet or while stored on our systems or otherwise in our care, will be absolutely safe from intrusion by others. The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where Pedagoog has given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of the websites, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone, and we urge you to be careful about giving out information in public areas of the websites. The information you share in public areas may be viewed by any user of the websites.


Your information will be stored and processed by Pedagoog in the United Kingdom. We take steps, including through contracts, to ensure that the information continues to be protected wherever it is located in a manner consistent with the standards of protection required under applicable law.

Where personal information is transferred from the United Kingdom or the European Economic Area (“EEA”) or Switzerland, we rely on appropriate safeguards such as the European Commission-approved Standard Contractual Clauses and Privacy Shield Frameworks to transfer the data and/or as otherwise authorized by applicable law.


When we collect from you any personal information within the scope of European data protection laws, we do so:

Where we rely on your consent to process personal information, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time, and where we rely on legitimate interests, you may have the right to object to our processing it.


Pedagoog may change this privacy policy from time to time. Laws, regulations and industry standards evolve, which may make those changes necessary, or we may make changes to our business. We will post the changes to this page and encourage you to review our Privacy Policy to stay informed. If we make changes that materially alter your privacy rights, Pedagoog will provide additional notice, such as via email or through the Services. If you disagree with the changes to this Privacy Policy, you should deactivate your Services account. You will need to contact your School Administrator if you wish to request the removal of Personal Data under their control.
