1-3: Changes to this Statement
Changes to the Privacy Statement apply to your use of our Services after the “effective date.”
Educate Magis can modify this Privacy Statement, and if we make material changes to it, we will provide notice through our Services, or by other means, to provide you the opportunity to review the changes before they become effective. If you object to any changes, you may close your account.
You acknowledge that your continued use of our Services after we publish or send a notice about our changes to this Privacy Statement means that the collection, use and sharing of your personal data is subject to the updated Privacy Statement.
2: What Data Do We Collect?
2-1: The Data You Provide Us With
You provide us with data when you register as a Member of the Community.
To create an account, you need to provide personal data including your name, email address, city, country, role, preferred email language, school name, school city, school country and a password.
You create your own Educate Magis profile (a complete profile makes global collaboration and networking easier).
You have choices about the information on your profile, such as which fields you choose to fill out and who you choose to share this information with. Some Members may choose not to complete all profile fields. You don’t have to provide additional information on your profile; however, profile information helps you to get more from our Services, including making it easier for other members to connect with you. It’s your choice whether to include sensitive information on your profile and whether to make that sensitive information public. Please do not post or add personal data to your profile that you would not want to be publicly available.
Note: we do not require Members to include sensitive data (e.g., race, ethnicity, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, physical or mental health, sexual orientation or criminal record) in their Educate Magis profile. If you choose to post any such data, it is visible to others like the rest of the profile information you provide.

Others may post or write about you on Educate Magis.

If you are a Head of School or have another significant leadership role in the school your Provincial, Education Delegate or Regional Network may have provided us with your personal data (name, email address and role) to add to our searchable school database. This is to help other Educate Magis members to contact you. If you wish to have this information removed, please contact us.

We are improving our Services, which means we get new data and create new ways to use data.
Our Services are dynamic, and we often introduce new features, which may require the collection of new information. If we collect materially different personal data or materially change how we use your data, we will notify you and may also modify this Privacy Statement.

We keep most of your personal data for as long as your account is open.
We retain your personal data while your account is in existence or as needed to provide you Services. This includes data you or others provided to us and data generated or inferred from your use of our Services. Even if you only use our Services every few years, we will retain your information and keep your profile open until you decide to close your account. In some cases we choose to retain certain information in a depersonalized form.
5-2: Your Rights to Access and Control Your Personal Data
You can access or delete your personal data. You have choices about how your data is collected, used and shared.
We provide you with choices about the collection, use and sharing of your data in relation to deleting or correcting data you include in your profile, controlling the visibility of the data in your profile and controlling our communication with you.
For personal data that we have about you:
- Delete Data: You may request to have your data erased (e.g., if it is no longer necessary to provide Services to you). To do this, please email [email protected] with the subject line “Data Deletion Request”. Note: requests must include scanned copies of two different forms of IDs, sent as an attachment.
- Change or Correct Data: You can edit some of your personal data through your account. You can also ask us to change, update or fix your data in certain cases, particularly if it’s inaccurate.

We monitor for and try to prevent security breaches. Please use the security features available through our Services.
We implement security safeguards designed to protect your data, such as HTTPS. We regularly monitor our systems for possible vulnerabilities and attacks.

Our third-party service providers may be based in countries outside your country of residence, including the United States, and may have different data protection laws than in your country. These third-party service providers are required to protect Personal Data entrusted to them and not use it for any other purpose than the specific service they are providing on our behalf. Where we ask third parties to work on our behalf, we ensure that they have sufficient information security measures in place before sharing information.
