At Wonde, we take privacy very seriously. We have prepared this privacy notice to ensure that we communicate to you, in the clearest way possible, how we treat your personal information. We encourage you to read this privacy notice carefully.

This notice sets out how we look after your personal data if you are a:

  • Parent or student;
  • Member of staff at a school;
  • Visitor to our website;
  • Supplier or business contact of Wonde.

We may update this notice from time to time, and you can find our latest notice on our website or by asking us for a copy.

2. What does Wonde do?

We provide applications and platforms to help schools better manage and securely control their data. Our Wonde platform integrates with a school’s management information systems, to allow schools to seamlessly transfer data to and from third party application providers.

We also provide applications to schools, such as our TestRegister application.

In most cases, Wonde acts as a data processor. This means we assist the school and the application provided to transfer your personal data, and that of pupils, to and from each other. In these cases, the school will be the data controller and the person responsible for deciding how and when your personal data is collected and used, whilst we follow the instructions of the school. The school, and, in some circumstances, the third party application provider, will be a data controller. The school should provide you with their privacy policy or privacy notice, setting out how the school uses your personal data.

Where we act as a data processor, we have legally binding agreements in place with the school (and application provider) which restrict how we process your personal data, in accordance with data protection laws. This includes personal data processed through the TestRegister application.

When you log in to our platform, visit our website, or contact Wonde support, we will receive certain data directly from you, such as your name and login details. For this limited data only, we will be the person responsible for deciding how and when your data is used, and we will be the data controller.

We are a data controller when we collect personal information from suppliers and other third parties who interact with us.

3. The purpose of this privacy notice

The purpose of the remainder of this privacy notice is to set out how we use your personal data when we act as a data controller.

This notice does not apply when we act as a data processor. In those cases, our private agreement with the school will apply, and you should read the school’s privacy policy or privacy notice to understand what personal data is collected and how it is used and shared.

4. The data we collect and how we collect it
