Our commitment to data security
Imabi Ltd recognises the importance of respecting and protecting your personal data (information), whilst providing you with a range of quality services. To do so we need to collect, process, and share a certain amount of information about you.
This document explains what information we’re likely to hold, how we collect it, and how we will use or share it. It also explains your rights, and how to contact us or the UK regulatory authority should you wish to exercise your rights or make a complaint. We will treat your personal data fairly and legally and always with discretion and respect.
This policy applies to all your information however captured, including from our App, through our website, or via telephone conversations with our staff. This includes when you:
- visit our branded social media pages
- use the Imabi platform as a private account holder
- use the Imabi platform and associated services (the “App”) as an authorised user, for example, as a pupil or employee of one of our customers who provided you with access to our services
- communicate with our offices or contact our operational teams via phone or email, or otherwise receive communications from us
- register for, attend and/or otherwise take part in our events, webinars or campaigns
As a private customer you will need to enter into a contract with us before you can access our App and services. In these circumstances Imabi will determine the purpose for collecting your data as well as its use. In these circumstances we are controllers of your data with a legal responsibility to process your data transparently, lawfully and with integrity as outlined in this policy.
As we evolve and develop our App we may look to users who are willing to participate in that evolutionary process. This is to assist us to enhance the App by expanding its functionality and ease of use before making it more widely available. We will work closely with private customers, schools and business to assist in identifying volunteers to participate with our development programmes. We will only enrol you as a volunteer with your full consent.
The data we collect
If you are using the App as a service offered by your school or employer, the information we require is limited to your name and email address. This will enable you to set up your own account to access our services. Our App for schools includes innovative functionality, it enables you to create your own free text and structured reports to send back to your school. We do not routinely access or process the contents of your personal reports. We treat this information with the utmost confidence, recognising it is a private communication between you and the recipient nominated by your school. The only exception might be if were necessary for us, or a third party acting under our control, to resolve technical issues or install system upgrades.
If you are a private customer, we will limit the personal information we collect. This means we will only collect the information we require to set up your user account and personal profile. This will include:· Full name · Postal Address · Age · Mobile Phone Number · Email address · Financial Information
Using Our Website.
Imabi does not process sensitive data, known as “special category data” in data protection legislation. As part of its reporting function, the Imabi4Education App provides custom text fields in which sensitive data may be added by either you or your school. We do not access this data unless it’s necessary to resolve a technical issue. We recommend that you or your school do not add sensitive data to these fields. Any data entered into these fields is intended to be accessed and used only by the school who will exercise control over its contents.
Our App is designed with the best interests of its users in mind, particularly children. It provides accurate and timely information directly to their smartphone or tablet, assisting individuals to make important lifestyle decisions on matters of personal wellbeing and safety. We and our Clients follow the Children’s Code; a code of practice published by the Information Commissioners Office. (Add link to code or add a copy as a tile to the website)
If you are a pupil and your school has given you the option to use our App, they will apply the codes of practice to determine if use of the App is in your best interest and will have exercised a risk-based approach to ensure each child has reached an appropriate age and capability to use the App without compromising their rights or freedoms.
If you are a private customer between the age of 10 and 12 years, defined as transitional years by the UK regulator, we require the consent of a parent or guardian before a contract can be agreed.
We fully understand the importance and duty we have in protecting your privacy. We take appropriate organisational and technical steps to safeguard it whilst it’s in our care. This includes:
· When transferring data to a third party, sending it securely using encryption or password protection, or a reliable secure courier
The data that we collect from you is stored and hosted in the European Economic Area (“EEA”). Following Brexit in June 21, the UK has been deemed adequate in terms of EU data protection legislation, therefore many of the GDPR rules still apply. Occasionally, we may need to process your personal data outside the EEA, for example, where it is processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for one of our suppliers. These transfers are subject to special rules under European and UK data protection law because non-EEA countries may not have the same data protection laws. If we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by making sure at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
- We will only transfer your data to such third-party suppliers who have agreed to comply with the required data security standards, policies and procedures and have put adequate security measures in place
- We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission and the UK
- Where we use certain service providers, we will use standard data protection contract clauses which have been approved by the European Commission. These are designed to re-create data protections equivalent to those we enjoy in the EEA and in the UK
How long do we keep your data.
Where we process personal data for site security purposes, we generally retain it for 12 months.
If you are using either Imabi4Education or Imabi4Business we will retain your data for one year after you have closed your account with us.
Where we process personal data under a contractual arrangement with you we generally keep the data for 6 years from your last interaction with us.
We may also keep personal information for longer periods where we are required to do so for legal or regulatory reasons, such as tax and accounting.
You have the right to access your personal data, and any such requests made to us shall be dealt within the legal time limits set.
Your rights include:· The right to be informed about the collection and use of your personal data. This is a key transparency requirement of the GDPR · The right to access information held about you · The right to have inaccurate personal data rectified or completed if incomplete · The right to have personal data erased · The right to request the restriction or suppression of the processing of your personal data · The right to data portability · The right to object to the processing of their personal data in certain circumstances · Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling
You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner Office who can be contacted via their web site www.ico.org.uk
GDPR does not insist for requests to be made in writing, however it will enable us to manage your request more quickly if you were to use either email or letter, accompanied by some form of identification, such as a copy of a passport or driving license. Your request should be directed to:
In most circumstances charges will not be made. Information will be provided promptly and no later than 30 days following receipt of the request.
Our privacy notice is reviewed at least every 12 months. This privacy notice was last updated on 23rd September 2021.
