11.2. We use SSL certificates and HTTPS security to encrypt data sent from you to us. When using the Languagenut website, if the URL of a web page starts with HTTPS, or you see a locked/green padlock symbol, your data is encrypted when it is sent from your computer to our server.

11.4. We may collect students’ names in the process of setting up classes and to allow schools to administer their accounts. This is the only personal information about students using our products/services we collect and it is only used for this purpose. Student usernames are generated by our system and are in the form of a combination of the student’s first name and (if entered) the first letter of their family name. Students will not be contacted by Languagenut and parents/schools may request that a child’s data be removed at any time. Removal will be completed by Languagenut after receiving a request by email.

12.3. We respect your right to change your mind. If you decide that after opting in, you no longer wish to be informed about our products, please contact us. If you no longer wish to receive emails, you can click on the ‘unsubscribe’ link included in all our marketing emails.

13. Use of students’/children’s personal information
