If you have given Consent, we may share your Information with carefully selected third-party organisations and business partners and they may contact you directly. If you prefer not to receive direct marketing communications from the third-party please contact them directly to withdraw the Consent.

CHILDREN

Although our education products are designed to be used with children, the BecomingX Platform is targeted at general audiences, educators and businesses. It is not targeted at children under 13 and children under 13 are not permitted to register to use the BecomingX Platform. We do not knowingly collect personal data from children under 13 and have in place safeguards to reduce the risk of this occurring. If you become aware that a child has provided us with personal data without parental consent, please contact us at privacy@becomingx.com. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with personal data without parental consent, we will take reasonable steps to remove information and terminate any account made by a child under 13 as soon as possible.

As a provider of surveying and reporting capabilities to our customers, we recognise that our education customers will likely administer surveys for students both under 16 and under 13. In this instance, BecomingX is a processor of the data on behalf of customers. It is essential that customers who administer surveys in their organisations follow all applicable laws relating to data privacy and are solely responsible for obtaining any consents required by data protection law. Educational institutions administering surveys must adhere to applicable child and student privacy standards, in particular ensuring parental consent for respondents under 13.

BecomingX designs its surveys in a way that limits the risk to any child respondents and supports a trusted relationship between customers administering surveys, their respondents and BecomingX. Specifically, we:

  • Provide guidance to customers (see our Terms & Conditions for more details): We stress to our customers the importance of them following the relevant data protection laws and guidelines when administering our surveys to children.
  • Provide age appropriate messaging: We provide clear and concise messaging to ensure children completing surveys understand its purpose and how the information they provide will be used.
  • Limit the information captured: We endeavour to design our surveys so that the responses are anonymous and child respondents have the confidence to provide truthful responses. Unless explicitly needed or requested, our surveys do not capture the following data from children:
    • Name
    • Day of birth (month and year only)
    • Contact information (e.g. email, phone number, address)
  • Limit the information provided to customers: In providing reports or data back to customers who have administered a BecomingX designed survey, we may suppress or aggregate any information if we believe they may be able to identify individuals.

For Business Purposes, BecomingX may use data from surveys which may include data provided by children. In these instances, we make the following commitments:

  • We will not use or share data beyond that required for educational, research or Business Purposes
  • Any data shared or published will never be personally identifiable i.e. it will always be anonymised or aggregated (unless explicitly requested or authorised)
  • We will never sell your Information
  • We will never build a personally identifiable profile of a student other than for supporting authorised educational purposes, or if authorised by the child or parent
  • We will never use this data for any targeting or advertising to children
  • We will maintain a comprehensive security program that is reasonably designed to protect the security, privacy, confidentiality, and integrity of children’s personal information against risks

Is your Information transferred internationally?

In short: We may transfer, store, and process your Information in countries other than your own but will take all reasonable steps to ensure it is p­­­­­rotected.

Whenever we transfer your Information outside of the UK, we will take all reasonable measures that we can to protect your Information in accordance with this Policy and applicable law. If the Information will be transferred outside of the European Economic Area, we will ensure than any additional required measures and/or safeguards are in place (e.g. the EU/US Privacy Shield if the transfer is to the USA, or that the EU model contract clauses are used, if applicable).

Your Consent to processing

You will be required to give Consent to certain processing activities before we can process your Information. Where applicable, we will seek Consent from you when you first submit Information to or through the BecomingX Platform.

If you have previously given your Consent you may freely withdraw such Consent at any time. You can do this by emailing privacy@becomingx.com.

If you withdraw your Consent, and if we do not have another legal basis for processing your Information, then we will stop processing your Information. If we do have another legal basis for processing your Information, then we may continue to do so, subject to your legal rights.

Please note that if we need to process your Information in order for you to use the BecomingX Platform and you object or do not provide Consent to us processing your Information, the BecomingX Platform will not be available to you.

How long do we keep your Information?

In short: We keep your Information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes outlined in this Policy, unless otherwise required by law.

We will only keep your Information for as long as it is necessary for the purposes set out in this Policy, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law (such as tax, accounting or other legal requirements).

When we have no ongoing Business Purpose to process your Information, we will either delete or anonymise it, or, if this is not possible (for example, because your Information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your Information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

How do we keep your Information safe?

In short: We aim to protect your Information through a system of organisational and technical security measures.

We have implemented appropriate technical and organisational security measures designed to protect the security of any Information we process. However, please also remember that we cannot guarantee that the internet itself is 100% secure. Although we will do our best to protect your Information, transmission of your Information to and from the BecomingX Platform is at your own risk. You should only access our services within a secure environment.

Third-party websites

In short: We are not responsible for the safety of any Information that you share with third-party providers who feature or advertise, but are not affiliated with, the BecomingX Platform.

The BecomingX Platform may feature links to third-party websites or contain advertisements from third parties that are not affiliated with us and which may link to other websites, online services or mobile applications. We cannot guarantee the safety and privacy of data you provide to any third parties. Any data collected by third parties is not covered by this Policy. We are not responsible for the content or privacy and security practices and policies of any third parties, including other websites, services or applications that may be linked to or from the BecomingX Platform. You should review the policies of such third parties and contact them directly to respond to your questions.

SOCIAL MEDIA FEATURES AND WIDGETS

The BecomingX Platform may integrate with social sharing features or other related tools which let you share actions you take on the BecomingX Platform with other apps, sites or media, and vice versa. These features may enable the sharing of information with your friends or the public, depending on the settings you establish with the social sharing site. For example, you may click on a Facebook "like" button, which publishes to your Facebook account that you "like" one of the videos or items featured on the BecomingX Platform. These features may also collect your IP address and which page you are visiting on the BecomingX Platform, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Your interaction with these features is governed by the privacy policy of the relevant social sharing site. Please refer to the privacy policies of those social sharing sites for more information. We cannot control the information or content you choose to make available publicly or how it is used by others.

ACCOUNT TERMINATION

You may terminate your account by deleting it on the BecomingX Platform. Once your account is closed, no further data will be collected, but we may retain your Information about you for the purposes authorised under this Policy, unless prohibited by law. We may keep and maintain anonymised data after you delete your account for analytics purposes.

WHAT ARE YOUR PRIVACY RIGHTS?

In short: You have certain rights in respect of your Information.

You have certain rights in relation to the Information that we hold about you. Details of these rights and how to exercise them are set out below. Please note we will require evidence of your identity before we are able to respond to your request. This is a security measure to ensure that your Information is not disclosed to a person who does not have the right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up your response. To exercise or discuss any of your rights please contact us at privacy@becomingx.com.

  • Right of Access: You have the right at any time to ask us for a copy of the Information that we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it. Where we have good reason, and where data protection law permits, we can refuse your request for a copy of your Information, or certain elements of the request. If we refuse your request or any element of it, we will provide you with our reasons for doing so.
  • Right of Correction or Completion: If Information we hold about you is not accurate or is out of date and requires amendment or correction you have a right to have the data rectified or completed.
  • Right of Erasure: In certain circumstances, you have the right to request that the Information we hold about you is erased e.g. if the information is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or processed or our processing of the Information is based on your consent and there are no other legal grounds on which we may process the Information.
  • Right to Object to or Restrict Processing: In certain circumstances, you have the right to object to our processing of your Information. For example, if we are processing your Information on the basis of our legitimate interests and there are no compelling legitimate grounds for our processing which override your rights and interests.

You may also have the right to restrict our use of your Information, such as in circumstances where you have challenged the accuracy of the Information and during the period where we are verifying its accuracy.

  • Right of Data Portability: In certain instances, you have a right to receive your Information that we hold about you in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.

In such circumstances, you can ask us to transmit your Information to you or directly to a third-party organisation.

While we are happy for such requests to be made, we are not able to guarantee technical compatibility with a third-party organisation’s systems. We are also unable to comply with requests that relate to personal information of others without their consent.

If we are relying on Consent to process your Information, you have the right to withdraw your Consent at any time. Please note however that this will not affect the lawfulness of the processing before its withdrawal.

Please note that we have the right to reject deletion requests that are unduly burdensome or repetitive or that cannot be honoured in light of legal obligations or ongoing disputes, or where retention is necessary to enforce our agreements or protect our or another party's rights, property, safety, or security. For example, we may retain information to prevent, investigate, or identify possible wrongdoing in connection with the BecomingX Platform or to comply with legal obligations.

If you do not agree to any change to this Policy, then you must immediately stop using the BecomingX Platform.

Safeguarding Policy

INTRODUCTION

As part of our activities, we at times work directly with children in schools, students in Universities and other youth-focused organisations. We are committed to providing an environment where young people feel secure, valued and listened to.

BecomingX has a responsibility to promote and protect child welfare in all that we do. Children and young people who feel secure make more successful learners and will be more likely to achieve their potential. As a UK-based company, this policy has been drawn up based on legislation, policy and guidance that seeks to protect children across the UK. In the UK, the 4 nations of England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, each have their own child protection system and laws based on the same principles to help protect children from abuse and neglect.

A summary of the key legislation and guidance is available from the NSPCC.

PURPOSE

The purpose of our safeguarding policy is:

  1. To protect children and individuals who use BecomingX’s products and services
  2. To ensure our core product and services are suitable for the intended audience
  3. To provide everyone that works with us, including children, our own staff and volunteers, with the overarching principles that guide our approach to child protection

POLICY STATEMENT

Our position on safeguarding is that:

  • No-one should experience abuse of any kind and everyone has the right to be protected from discrimination, in all its forms.
  • We have a responsibility to promote the welfare of everyone, to keep them safe and to operate at all times in a way that protects them.
  • The welfare of the child is paramount.
  • All people regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation have a right to equal protection from all types of harm or abuse.
  • Some people are additionally vulnerable because of the impact of previous experiences, their level of dependency, communication needs or other issues.
  • Working in partnership with schools, children, their parents, carers and other agencies is essential in promoting young people’s welfare.

We will seek to keep children safe by ensuring that:

  • We value, listen to and respect everyone we work with.
  • We have a nominated safeguarding lead; and our policies and procedures will be regularly reviewed to ensure best practice.
  • We ensure that all of our staff that work with young people have appropriate background checks completed (e.g. in the UK, Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service).
  • We ensure that all of our staff working with children complete appropriate training
  • We ensure all staff know they have a responsibility to report concerns to the appropriate safeguarding lead as soon as possible.
  • We provide effective management for staff and volunteers through supervision, support, and training.
  • We ask all partner organisations, who may provide services in conjunction with BecomingX, have their own safeguarding policies and processes in place.
  • We take any allegations against staff and volunteers seriously and we will respond swiftly and appropriately, in line with our complaints and whistleblowing procedures.
  • We record and store information professionally and securely, in line with regulations.
  • We provide a safe physical environment for children, young people, staff and volunteers when organising events ourselves.
