Aside from our website data, any applicant that submits data to Vision Teaching shall be subject to our full Data Protection and Information Security Policy - a copy of which can be found here.
The procedure by which we follow our Data Protection and Information Security Policy can be found here.
Our website is secured to ensure that any information you provide is not unlawfully processed. Your registration details are contained behind secured networks and are only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to our system and who are obligated to keep the information confidential.
Unfortunately, Vision Teaching cannot guarantee the security of any data you disclose online and can only be held responsible for the breach of security where Vision Teaching has been negligent. The internet is not a totally secure channel, therefore please accept the implications of using the internet and providing information online.
- Your information
When you register online, ask us a question or provide feedback, Vision Teaching requires you to provide certain information, such as your contact details. This allows us to keep a user profile so that we may customise preferences to you and each specific user, as well as provide a faster method for you and other users to submit information to us and receive back the information desired.
We gather this information for our own use in order to understand your requirement, respond to your query and occasionally notify you about important changes to the site, new features and services, and special offers we think you will find useful. Our policy is to comply with the provisions of the Data Protection Act 1998.
- Disclosure of information
The only time we will share information with third parties is in an aggregate form to our advertisers and strategic partners. These statistics will not include any information that can be used to identify you personally. If you can be identified from the information to be passed, we will first notify you and obtain your permission. At no point will Vision Teaching rent, sell or otherwise provide personally identifiable information about you and your account to anyone except registered schools in the UK. However, in the event that Vision Teaching teachers are sold or incorporated with another business, your details may be disclosed to our advisors and any prospective buyers' advisors and will be passed on to the new owners of the business.
Our website links to other websites. However, when you choose any of these websites, we have no control over and accept no responsibility in the material on these sites not controlled by Vision Teaching. The links do not mean that we approve the linked site or any material, products or services on other sites. You agree that we will never be held responsible or liable for any loss or damage, personal injury or death caused (or alleged to have been caused) by use of dependence on any linked site or dealings with advertisers. We are also not responsible for the use of any information you provide them.
