  • When we collect children’s personal information, we make it clear that we require the parent/guardian’s permission in order to collect it. We do not actively seek to collect children’s data without this consent from a parent or guardian.
  • Information we collect on children will include their full name, year group, school, and any other personal information provided to us with consent. This information will only be used to allow us to provide the service that has been requested.
  • We treat this data in the same way as other data outlined in this policy.
