PRIVACY POLICY

MathemaTIC (“we”, “us”, or “our”) values your privacy. We are committed to protecting your personal information whether you are engaging in learning, conducting business with us electronically, or simply browsing for information. As such, MathemaTIC has developed this Privacy Policy in order for you to understand how we collect, communicate, disclose and make use of your personal information.

The MathemaTIC team considers data security to be our top priority and we are committed to maintaining the highest standards in accordance with established best practices and legal requirements. We strive to hold your data in a secure manner while helping you attain your educational goals.

Your ministry of education, academic institution, or organization decides the purpose and method of data processing on MathemaTIC and are therefore considered "Data Controllers". Vretta, as the learning technology partner for MathemaTIC, is considered a "Data Processor" since the data is processed on behalf of the Data Controller, as per its instructions.  

This privacy policy will explain how our organization uses the personal data we collect from you when you use our website.

PRIVACY STATEMENT

MathemaTIC strongly adheres to the principles outlined in the Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data. This Regulation applies to all users with whom MathemaTIC interacts in the course of its business, including international users and minors.

GENERAL PROVISION

  • We will collect and use your personal information only within the bounds of this Privacy Policy and the documented instructions of the relevant Data Controller
  • We undertake to collect your personal information solely by lawful and fair means.
    • It is ultimately the responsibility of the Data Controller to ensure personal data has been processed legally. However we have put in place measures to ensure that data is not processed without justifiable legal basis. The lawful basis for processing your data in this case is your explicit consent.
    • In some cases the legal justification may be different and in those cases your Data Controller has chosen to utilize other means of justifying processing.
  • We will not share your personal information with any third parties, except as necessary to provide you with the services and products you have requested or to comply with the law.
  • We will not sell or rent our mailing list.
