Data Processing Agreement

This Data Processing Agreement only applies to those schools which sign up to Natterhub’s Social Media Platform Service. This is because when Natterhub contracts with schools to use the Social Media Platform Service, they are considered “data controllers” of personal data. Natterhub acts on behalf of the school as data controller in regards to what personal data Natterhub processes to provide the Social Media Platform Service. Natterhub is therefore, considered a “data processor” of that personal data.

When a data controller uses a data processor, a data processing agreement must be drawn up to identify the responsibilities and liabilities of each party for the processing of personal data.

This Data Processing Agreement forms part of the agreement between the school and Natterhub along with the Standard Terms and Conditions and the School Terms and Conditions. The definitions used in the School Terms and Conditions apply to this agreement. The definitions used in the Standard Terms and Conditions do not apply to this Data Processing Agreement. If there is a conflict between any of these documents, the School Terms and Conditions shall take precedence.

How long do we keep your personal information?

We will retain personal information where we have a contractual, legal or legitimate obligation to do so. We will retain such information for as long as reasonably required to meet such contractual, legal or legitimate obligations. We may have to retain your information for a number of years in order to satisfy these obligations. For example, we may need to comply with an applicable UK, EU or international law with regards to tax and accounting requirements.

When we have no purpose and lawful grounds to use your information, or where you can exercise your rights under your country’s data protection law, we will take reasonable steps to delete or anonymise it.

How do we keep your personal information secure?

We have safeguards in place to protect your personal information. These measures are reviewed regularly and updated when necessary to meet our business needs and regulatory requirements. Examples of procedures and organisational measures include, but are not limited to:

  • encryption of your personal information when in transit and storage;
  • role-based access of data through strict policies and procedures;
  • employees and contractors subject to the relevant confidentiality commitments and vetting (e.g. employment checks, contracts and confidentiality agreements);
  • on-going training on systems, software and training in security and data protection laws;
  • policies, procedures and technical measures to protect against accidental loss and unauthorised access, use, destruction or disclosure of data. Some examples are: firewalling and content filtering; virus/malware scanning and protection; vulnerability scanning; multi-factor authentication; pseudonymization; logging, monitoring, inventory and auditing; secure design; privacy impact assessments, physical security controls; system authentication/role-based access control, high availability configuration and regular backups;
  • business continuity and disaster recovery strategies, designed to safeguard the our continuity and to protect you and your personal information.

We will take steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your personal information is protected. Although we do our best to keep your personal information safe, we cannot guarantee the security or integrity of any personal information which is transferred from you or to you via the Internet. The use of the Internet is not entirely secure and no company can ever make this guarantee to you. Any transmission is therefore, at your own risk.
