Data in SchoolWorkSpace can be divided up into 3 areas, imported data, entered data and analytics data.
SchoolWorkSpace imports data from a school's Management Information System (MIS) . We do this using Groupcall Ltd's Xporter, or Wonde, or direct from the MIS. Data is always transferred encrypted over SSL (https) and is stored securely in Microsoft's Azure Data-Centre located in the UK. We do not transfer data outside of the UK except where individual customers are based outside of the UK (e.g. British International Schools). We only import and process the data required to provide the services to the school. Since this data comes from the school please contact the school if there are data errors.
Users of SchoolWorkSpace enter data into the system in order to use its functions. This data is stored securely in Microsoft's Azure Data-Centre located in the UK.
As users interact with SchoolWorkSpace we gather anonymous data both internally in the system and externally using Google Analytics and Microsoft's Application Insights. This data is used to improve our service.
SchoolWorkSpace will not sell or share data about you except in provision of a service for a school (e.g. the school sets Homework so we use your email address and send you an email). The school data sharing agreement is here.
SchoolWorkSpace uses external services provided by third party companies to provide the service.
Groupcall Xporter provides services for import and export of data from the School MIS. This is the standard method of interfacing with SIMS.
An alternative to Groupcall Xporter for import and export of data from the school MIS.
We can also import directly from your school MIS e.g. Arbor, Bromcom, iSAMS, Veracross.
We use mailgun for sending emails.
We use Brevo (SendInBlue) for sending SMS messages.
We use Groupcall Messenger as an alternative route for sending messages (Email, SMS, Xpressions/Push) if the school already uses Groupcall Messenger
We use Azure UK South data centre for servers and data storage.
By using SchoolWorkSpace software you agree to the use of the above mentioned third parties as sub-processors. Any changes will be notified to you for additional authorisation.
