1. Who we are

Discovery Education is an online education service provider that produces and delivers high-quality digital content for primary and secondary education and beyond, including textbooks, streaming media and other rich content. The services we offer enable teachers and pupils to participate in enhanced learning experiences. Depending on the context of the personal data you or your school provides, Discovery Education may be the data “controller” or “business”, or “processor” or “service provider” of your personal data under applicable data protection laws. Discovery Education is a “processor” or “service provider” of its customer data, personal data submitted to the Services or collected through the Services on behalf of or at the direction of the subscriber (the schools or school districts who are the “controllers” of the personal data), and personal data it receives or collects from the subscriber. When Discovery Education is acting as a “processor” or “service provider”, Discovery Education will only process the personal data on behalf of and subject to the terms of its contract with the subscriber, to the extent such contract exists, unless otherwise required by law. If you have questions about our processing of your personal data on behalf of a subscriber, please refer to the subscriber’s privacy policy.

We respect the privacy of pupils, teachers, our customers, and users of our websites and services, and have developed this Policy to demonstrate our commitment to protecting your privacy. In order to deliver our services to you, from time to time we collect personal data. The information we collect from you, along with the content that you use on our services and the data on how you use our websites and services help us to provide a range of services that meet your needs.

Please read this Policy carefully. It is your choice whether or not to provide personal data to us. If you choose not to provide your personal data to us, you may not be able to use our Services.

2. Scope

This Policy applies to personal data that Discovery Education collects and processes about our customers, users of the password-protected online subscription services, and users of our websites (identified below) and through our provision of subscription services, digital content, virtual and in-person events, classroom contests and challenges and professional development services to teachers (“Services”). This Policy does not apply to Discovery Education, Inc., the related websites, and services. For information about Discovery Education, Inc.’s data privacy practices, please review the Privacy Policy available at: https://www.discoveryeducation.com/privacy-policy/.

For the purposes of this Policy, the term “Websites” shall refer collectively to www.discoveryeducation.co.uk as well as the other websites that we operate and that link to this Policy.

In this Policy, “personal data” means information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. An identifiable person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, and an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to a person’s physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural, or social identity. Personal data does not include aggregate information or de-identified information, meaning that the information can no longer be attributed to an identifiable natural person without the use of additional information.

Personal data is required for us to be able to provide the majority of our Services to you. In addition, some of the Services we provide require that we disclose your personal data to third parties, such as to companies that help us to provide our Services. If you are not willing to provide your personal data and have it disclosed to third parties in accordance with this Policy, you may not be able to use our Services.

Our Websites and Services may contain links to other websites that do not operate under this Policy. These third-party websites may independently solicit and collect personal data from you. We encourage you to review the privacy statements of all third-party websites you visit to understand their information practices.

While we strongly support the protection of privacy on the Internet, we do not have control over, and cannot be responsible for, the actions of other third parties. We encourage you to review each such third party’s privacy statement and other otherwise understand its privacy practices, before providing personal data directly to it.

This Policy does not apply to information that is collected from Discovery Education’s employees, job applicants, or independent contractors.

We also may use various technologies to collect information from your computer or device and about your activities on our Websites and Services.

  1. Information collected automatically. We may automatically collect information from you when you visit our Websites and Services. We use this information to deliver our webpages to you upon request, to tailor our Services to the interests of our users and to measure traffic within our Services.

Please see the privacy policy for the applicable social media site to learn more about how these sites share your personal data.
  3. Cookies. When you visit our Websites and/or Services, we may assign your computer one or more cookies to help you navigate our website efficiently, to personalise your online experience, and to perform certain functions, including website traffic analysis. Through the use of a cookie, we also may automatically collect information about your online activity on our site, such as the web pages you visit, the links you click, and the searches you conduct on our site. Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. If you choose to decline cookies please note that you may not be able to sign in or use some of the interactive features offered on our Websites and Services. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s computer for record keeping purposes. Cookies can be either session cookies or persistent cookies. A session cookie expires when you close your browser and is used to make it easier for you to navigate our website. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. For example, when you sign in to our Websites and Services, we will record your GUID (Globally Unique Identifier) in the cookie file on your computer. This cookie is removed when you sign-out. In the case of sites and services that do not use a user ID, the cookie will contain a unique identifier. We may allow our authorised service providers to serve cookies from our website to allow them to assist us in various activities, such as doing analysis and research on the effectiveness of our site, content and advertising. You may delete or decline cookies by changing your browser settings (click “Help” in the toolbar of most browsers for instructions).

  4. Other technologies. We may use standard Internet technology, such as web beacons and other similar technologies, to track your use of our Websites and Services. We also may include web beacons in promotional e-mail messages or newsletters to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon. The information we obtain in this manner enables us to customise the services we offer our Websites and Services visitors, to deliver targeted advertisements, and to measure the overall effectiveness of our online advertising, content, programming or other activities. Web beacons (also known as clear gifs, pixel tags or web bugs) are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web users or to access cookies. Unlike cookies, which are stored on the user’s computer hard drive, web beacons are embedded invisibly on the web pages (or in email) and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. Web beacons may be used to deliver or communicate with cookies, to count users who have visited certain pages and to understand usage patterns. We also may receive an anonymous identification number if you come to our site from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website.

Information Collected From Other Sources

We may also get information about teachers, educators, and school administrators from other third parties, such as entities that serve as resellers of the Services and entities that license datasets of teachers, educators, and school administrators. We may also obtain both personal and non-personal data about you from advertising companies, and ad networks business partners, contractors and other third parties and add it to our account information or other information we have collected. We may combine this information with information we collect through our Websites or from other sources.

4. How We Use Personal data

Legal Basis for Processing

If the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is applicable, our legal basis for processing your personal data will depend on the personal data concerned and the specific context in which we collect it. Discovery Education relies on the following lawful basis for processing personal data: explicit consent, processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, legitimate interest, and compliance with legal obligations.

When we have collected your personal data to provide you with Services that you have requested, our legal basis for the processing of that personal data is that it is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract. If you refuse to provide us with your personal data, you may be unable to obtain the products and services from us that you requested.

We also collect and process personal data about you as necessary to operate our business, sales, account management, provide direct marketing, product development and improvement, product usage analytics, meet our contractual and legal obligations, and/or fulfill our other legitimate interests (when not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms).

From time to time, you may provide us with your personal information in order to receive a discount on a product. In this instance, our legal basis for the processing of that personal data is your explicit consent. Where our processing of your personal data is based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. This does not affect the lawfulness of the processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

If you have any questions about or need further information concerning the legal basis on which we collect and use your personal data, please contact us using the contact details provided below.

How Long We Retain Your Personal data

We will retain your personal data for as long as is needed to fulfill the purposes set forth in this Policy, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law (such as tax, accounting, or other legal requirements).

Upon expiration or termination of any subscriber agreement, we destroy personal data previously received from the subscriber/customer when the subscriber signed up for the Services along with information relating to the subscriber/customer’s use of the Services no later than sixty (60) days following such termination, unless a reasonable written request is submitted by subscriber/customer/distributor to Discovery Education to retain such personal data.

For teacher or instructor users who provided their NAHT trade union membership number, Discovery Education purges the NAHT trade union membership number after it validates the membership with NAHT.

5. Sharing of Personal data

We share your personal data as necessary to provide the Services you request, including sharing information with third party service providers; when required by law; to protect rights and safety; and with your consent.

We may share personal data with:

  • Authorised service providers: We may share your personal data with our authorised service providers that perform certain services on our behalf. These services may include delivering our Website or Services to you or providing customer service and support to the Services you have licensed, providing marketing to you, performing business and sales analysis, supporting our Website and Service functionality, conducting surveys and research for product development and improvement, and supporting contests, promotions, sweepstakes, surveys and other features offered through our Websites and Services.

    1. In response to a subpoena or similar investigative demand, a court order, or a request for cooperation from a law enforcement or other government agency; to establish or exercise our legal rights; to defend against legal claims; or as otherwise required by law. In such cases, we may raise or waive any legal objection or right available to us.
    2. When we believe disclosure is appropriate in connection with efforts to investigate, prevent, or take other action regarding illegal activity, suspected fraud or other wrongdoing; to protect and defend the rights, property or safety of our company, our users, our employees, or others; to comply with applicable law or cooperate with law enforcement; or to enforce our website terms and conditions or other agreements or policies.

Third-Party Privacy Policies:

Any third parties to whom we may disclose personal data may have their own privacy policies which describe how they use and disclose personal data. Those policies will govern use, handling and disclosure of your personal data once we have shared it with those third parties as described in this Policy. If you want to learn more about their privacy practices, we encourage you to visit the websites of those third parties. These entities or their servers may be located either inside or outside the United States.

Aggregated and Non-personal data:

We may share aggregated and non-personal data we collect under any of the circumstances set forth in this Policy. We may share aggregated information with third parties, including advisors, partners, and potential customers, for the purpose of conducting general business analysis. For example, we may tell our advertisers the number of visitors to our Websites and Services and the most popular features or services accessed. This information does not contain any personal data and may be used to develop website content and services that we hope you and other users will find of interest and to target content and advertising.

6. International Transfer of Information

Your personal data may be transferred to, stored, and processed within the United States. Personal data regarding individuals who reside in the United Kingdom and a member state of the European Economic Area is controlled by Discovery Education Europe Limited and may be processed on its behalf by Discovery Education, Inc. Additionally, we may transfer your personal data to other countries in certain circumstances, for example because a server or third party service provider is located there. Discovery Education uses approved Model Contractual Clauses for the international transfer of personal data collected in the United Kingdom and the European Economic Area.

There are potential risks to you associated with transferring your information to the United States and other countries due to the absence of an adequacy decision and appropriate safeguards. These risks include the risk that you will not be able to exercise your data protection rights under applicable law to protect yourself from unlawful use or disclosure of your information. The data protection and privacy laws of certain countries, including the United States, may not afford you the same level of protection as those in your own country. BY PROVIDING YOUR PERSONAL DATA TO US, YOU ARE CONSENTING TO ANY TRANSFER, STORAGE, AND PROCESSING IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS POLICY.

7. Your Privacy Rights

You may have certain rights in relation to your personal data. If you would like to exercise any of them, please contact us (contact details below).

We will consider all such requests and provide our response within a reasonable period (and in any event within any time period required by applicable law). Please note, however, that certain personal data may be exempt from such requests in certain circumstances.

If an exception applies, we will tell you this when responding to your request. We may request you provide us with information necessary to confirm your identity before responding to any request you make.

How You Can Access or Request to Delete Your Information

If you have an online account with us, you have the ability to review and update your personal data online by logging into your account, to the extent that information is held within our subscription services. You can also review and update your personal data by contacting your school.

In addition, if certain information has already been provided to third parties as described in this Policy, retention of that information may be subject to those third parties’ policies.

Your Choices About Collection and Use of Your Information

You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but that may result in you being unable to use certain features of our website because such information may be required in order for you to participate in a contest, survey, or sweepstakes; ask a question; or initiate other transactions on our website.

Please note that changing information in your account, or otherwise opting out of receipt of promotional email communications will only affect future activities or communications from us.

For pupils using the Services, any personal data that may be provided, which may include, but is not limited to, first and last name, key stage and school, will be provided by the academy trust, individual school, or individual using the Service.

Use of Personal data Collected from Children

When we collect personal data from children, we will only use that information for the express purpose for which it was collected. The personal data will not be used for any other purpose.

Sharing of Personal data Collected from Children

Except as provided in this Section, we do not share personal data collected from children with any third parties. We may, however, share a child’s personal data that we have collected from the child’s school or from the child through the provision of Services in the following limited instances:

  • We may share such information with service providers who help Discovery Education maintain the Services and provide other administrative services to us. We seek to ensure that these service providers may not use the personal data for any other purpose. These service providers have agreed to maintain the confidentiality, security and integrity of the personal data.
  • We may disclose a child’s personal data to third parties if we believe we are required to do so in order to comply with law (including court orders and subpoenas); to comply with requests from law enforcement agencies or the government; to enforce our Terms of Use; to protect our rights, privacy, safety or property and the rights, privacy, safety or property of our employees or other users of our Services; to protect our operations; and to permit us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain.

10. Other Important Information

Below, you will find additional privacy information you may find important.

Security

While we are focused on the security of your personal data and follow strict standards, processes and procedures that are designed to protect your personal data, you must remember that the Internet is a global communications vehicle open to threats, viruses and intrusions from others and so we cannot promise, and you should not expect, that we will be able to protect your personal data at all times and in all circumstances.

Users should also take care with how they handle and disclose their personal data and should avoid sending personal data through insecure email.

No Rights of Third Parties

This Policy does not create rights enforceable by third parties.

We may also notify you by sending you an e-mail. We encourage you to review the Policy each time you visit one of our Websites and Services to see if this Policy has been updated since your last visit to make sure you understand how your personal data will be processed.
