Our Privacy Policy – For Students

If you are a student taking part in one of our activities, we, Mangorolla CIC, will collect information from you to help us run our activities and send you updates.

Our ICO reference number is ZA243399.

1. What we ask for, and why

We’ll ask you a few questions on your profile page. You can answer these if you want to and edit them at any time.

Your account is linked to your teacher and school, so we can identify you if we need to. Sometimes we will be required to share your name and email with your teacher. This will happen if you break any of the House Rules or if we have a safeguarding concern.

This is what we ask all students:

Display Name
Your display name is shown when you ask questions, take part in live chats and leave comments. Please do not use your full name.
Full Name
To identify a student in the event of a safeguarding or behaviour concern.
Email address
To tell you when your question has been answered, about activity updates (including evictions/winners), and follow up surveys for you to tell us what they thought of taking part.
If you are 16 or over
To identify whether you are able to consent to share your information. If you are under 16, your teacher will consent for you. Also use anonomously for evaluation.

2. Our legal basis for collecting your information, and how you can remove it

We collect the above information from you as part of our legitimate business interests. If we didn’t have this information, we wouldn’t be able to run our activities.

If you would like us to remove any of your information you can email your request to privacy@mangorol.la with your name, email you used on our site and what project and zone you were involved in. We will remove your data within 30 days.

3. Who we share your information with

If you are a student taking part in our activities, any data you provide us when registering is only stored on our site.

We do NOT share your details with anyone else.

4. How long we keep your information for

If you have taken part in one of our activities your personal information will be removed at the end of the academic year, or after 6 months (whichever is later). That means we’ll delete your name and email address. We will then make any questions, comments or evaluation surveys you have sent on the site anonymous.

5. Accessing your information

You have a right to access all of your information. To request access, email privacy@mangorol.la with your name, email you used on our site and what project and zone you were involved in. We will then provide everything in your preferred format within 30 days.

If you are a participant in one of our events, you can view and edit your profile information at any time by logging in and clicking ‘Edit my profile’.

6. Site data

During the event our computers put a session cookie on your computer. If you block this cookie the site can’t work, so please don’t do that. A session cookie is a small file that identifies who you are. It allows you to vote once, to ask questions and take part in live chats showing the screen name you choose (we will never put your real name on the site). After you log off the cookie is removed from your computer.

As you use the site we do record some information that could be traced to you. We record how you vote so we can check the evictions are done fairly if necessary. This information NEVER gets released though, except on your profile page where logged in users in your zone will be able to see the engineer you most recently voted for.

We also record what questions you ask and what you say in Live Chat. We do this so the engineers know who they are talking to – at least they know your username. We also record when you log in and where you log in from (your IP address). We log the IP address so that if someone registers on the site claiming to be someone else then we can see where they are logging on from. It also helps us track any technical issues.

That sounds like a lot but it doesn’t get given away and nobody will be able to trace it to you.
