Privacy Policy

Effective 17 February 2022, we have updated our existing Privacy Policy. We have created a FAQ that you can read here

There are many different ways you can use our services – to create content, share information and communicate with other people. 

When you share information with us, for example, by creating an account with us, we can make those services even better – to help you connect with people or to make sharing with others quicker and easier. As you use our services, we want you to be clear how we’re using information and the ways in which you can protect your privacy. 

This Privacy Policy ("Privacy Policy" or "Policy") explains: 

  • What information we collect and why we collect it. 
  • How we use that information. 
  • The choices we offer, including how to access and update information. 

We’ve tried to keep it as simple as possible, but if you’re not familiar with terms like cookies, IP addresses and browsers, then read about these key terms first. Your privacy matters to us; whether you are new to EdApp or a long-time customer, please do take the time to get to know our practices – and if you have any questions, contact us at privacy@edapp.com.

Transparency and choice

People have different privacy concerns. Our goal is to be clear about what information we collect, so that you can make meaningful choices about how it is used and control who you share information with. By providing personal information to us, you consent to us collecting, holding, using and disclosing your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. You do not have to provide personal information to us, however, if you do not, it may affect your use of this Site or the products and/or services offered on or through it.

You may also set your browser to block all cookies, including cookies associated with our services, or to indicate when a cookie is being set by us. However, it’s important to remember that many of our services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled. For example, you may not be able to login to EdApp or utilise other services

What information we collect 

We collect information to provide better services to all of our users – from figuring out basic stuff like which language you speak, to more complex things like what content matters most to you.

We collect information in the following ways: 

  • Information you give us. We collect information about you and your company as you register for an account with us, create or modify your profile, use, access or interact with our services or websites (including but not limited to when you upload, download, collaborate on or share content, including photos and videos). Such content includes any personal information or other sensitive information that you choose to include. For example, when you sign up for an account with us, we may ask you to supply us with certain personally identifiable information, including but not limited to first name, last name and email address. We may present your name or  email address to other users in your organisation, or otherwise associated with your account in order to assist in sharing or recommendations. You may also choose to sign up on our website for webinars or to receive more information about our products and services.
  • Information we get from your use of our services. As with most websites and technology services delivered over the Internet, our servers automatically collect information when you access or use the Service and record it in log files. This information includes: 

    - Device information: We may collect device-specific information (such as your hardware model, operating system version, unique device identifiers, and mobile network information, which, for some users may include a phone number). We may associate your device identifiers or phone number with your account.

    - Log Information: When you use our services or view content on our services, we may automatically collect and store certain information in server logs.

    This may include: details of how you used our service, such as search queries; your Internet Protocol (IP) address; browser type and settings; 
    the date and time the service was used; information about browser configuration, plugins, crashes, system activity and hardware settings; language preferences; and cookie data that may uniquely identify your browser or your account.

    - Unique application numbers – Certain services include a unique application number. This number and information about your installation (for example, the operating system type and application version number) may be sent to us when you install or uninstall that service or when that service periodically contacts our servers, such as for automatic updates.

    - Local storage – We may collect and store information (including personal information) locally on your device using mechanisms such as browser web storage (including HTML 5) and application data caches.

    Cookies and anonymous identifiers – We use various technologies to collect and store information when you visit our services, and this may include sending one or more cookies or anonymous identifiers to your device. 
  • Information we get from your employer. We may also receive your information from your employer (our client), who will have a contractual relationship with EdApp to provide learning to you (its employees).

What do we do with your information?

We may use the information we collect, including your personal information and transaction information, from all our services in any one or more of the locations that EdApp operates or otherwise conducts business (these locations currently being Australia, the United States, the United Kingdom and the Philippines) for the following purposes: 

  • for internal and service-related purposes, such as to provide, maintain, protect, improve, and personalize our services, to develop new ones and to protect the rights, property, or safety of EdApp and our users; 
  • to communicate with you in order to provide you with information we think may be useful for relevant to you (including communicating with you about billing, account management services and administrative matters, delivering customer support and sending you prizes that you may have won through your activity on the service); 
  • to promote our services and related services; 
  • to analyse information in order to offer aggregated anonymised data products to third parties including for research, marketing, analytics, and other purposes; 
  • to enforce the Privacy Policy and our terms of service for use of our services and website; 
  • to monitor and analyse trends, usage, and activities in connection with our services and for marketing or advertising purposes or to offer to you tailored content; 
  • to investigate and prevent fraudulent transactions, unauthorised access to or use of our services, and other illegal or unusual activities;
  • when you contact us, to keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your email address to inform you about our services, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements;
  • from cookies and other technologies, to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our services; and 
  • as otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy.

To use the information we collect, we may require our systems to access, screen capture, store, video and/or scan your information. Where appropriate or required by data protection laws, we will ask for your consent before using information for a purpose other than those that are set out in this Privacy Policy.

How long do we keep your data?

We will retain your personal information for the time necessary to provide the services we perform for you, or to achieve other purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy, and you can always request that we stop processing or delete your personal information.

We may be required to keep some of your information for certain periods of time under law. When we no longer require your information, we will ensure that your information is destroyed or de-identified.

We may need to retain certain personal information after we cease providing you with products or services to enforce our terms, for fraud prevention, to identify, issue or resolve legal claims and/or for proper record keeping.

Disclosure of personal information outside Australia 

EdApp processes personal information on our servers in many countries around the world. We may process your personal information on a server located outside the country where you live. 

We may disclose personal information outside of Australia to third parties for the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy. You can request a list of sub-processors currently engaged by EdApp and authorised by you by emailing us at privacy@edapp.com. 

By providing us with personal information, you consent to the disclosure of your personal information to third parties who reside outside Australia. Where we disclose your personal information to third parties, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that any overseas recipient will deal with such information in a way that is consistent with the Australian Privacy Principles.

Information you share 

Many of our services let you share information with others. Remember that when you share information publicly, it may be indexable by search engines. Our services provide you with different options on sharing and removing your content. 

Information we share 

We do not share personal information with third parties unless one of the following circumstances apply: 

  • With your consent 

We will share personal information with companies, organisations or individuals outside of EdApp where we have your consent to do so. 

  • With account administrators (such as your employer) 

If your account is managed for you by an organisation administrator (such as your employer) then your organisation’s administrator and resellers who provide support to your organisation will have access to your information (including your email and other data). Your account administrator may be able to: 

- view statistics regarding your account; 

- change your account password; 

- suspend or terminate your account access; 

- access or retain information stored as part of your account; 

- receive your account information in order to satisfy applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request; 

- restrict your ability to delete or edit information. 

Please refer to your account administrator’s and reseller’s privacy policy for more information. 

  • With third party service providers

We may disclose personal information to: 

- third party service providers for the purpose of enabling them to provide their services, including (without limitation) IT service providers, data storage or management, web-hosting and server providers, debt collectors, maintenance or problem-solving providers, marketing or advertising providers, customer lifecycle management providers, data analytics or reporting providers, finance systems, cyber security providers, project management or collaboration providers, testing, research and alert tools, email service providers and payment system operators; 

- our existing or potential agents or business partners; 

- third parties, including agents or sub-contractors, who assist us in providing information, products, services or direct marketing to you. 

  • To address fraud, security or technical issues

We will share your personal information with trusted third parties where necessary to detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.

  • For legal reasons

We may disclose your information if required by applicable law, regulation or as part of any actual or prospective legal process (including if reasonably necessary to enforce applicable Terms of Service or in order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights). If we receive a request from a regulatory body or law enforcement agency, and if permitted under GDPR, the CCPA and other laws, we may disclose certain information to such bodies or agencies.

  • Merger or acquisition

If we merge with or are acquired by another business, we may share your personal information with the new owners of the business and their advisors. We will continue to ensure the confidentiality of any personal information and give affected users notice (for example, via a message to the email address associated with your account) before personal information is transferred or becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

We may share aggregated, non-personally identifiable information publicly and with our partners – like publishers, advertisers or connected sites. For example, we may share information publicly to show trends about the general use of our services. This could also include government bodies, industry groups, insurers and educational/training facilities.

Information security 

We have put in place robust measures regarding the security of the information we collect and store about you (including through the use of network and database security measures) and will use our reasonable endeavours to protect your personal data from unauthorised access to or unauthorised alteration, disclosure or destruction. In particular:

  • We encrypt many of our services using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) or Transport Layer Security (TLS).
  • We review our information collection, storage and processing practices, including physical security measures, to guard against unauthorised access to systems.
  • We restrict access to personal information to our employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to process it for us, and who are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.
  • We have multiple authentication and access control measures to ensure data is only accessed by authorised personnel.
  • We enforce strong encryption of all data at rest through the use of the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES-256).

The transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our servers via third party networks; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.


Our Privacy Policy applies to all of the services offered by EdApp and its affiliates, but excludes services that have separate privacy policies that do not incorporate this Privacy Policy. 

Our Privacy Policy does not apply to services offered by other companies or individuals, including products or sites that may be displayed to you in search results, sites that may include EdApp services, or other sites linked from our services. Our Privacy Policy does not cover the information practices of other companies and organizations who advertise our services.


We regularly review our compliance with our Privacy Policy. We also adhere to several self regulatory frameworks. When we receive formal written complaints, we will contact the person who made the complaint to follow up. We work with the appropriate regulatory authorities, including local data protection authorities, to resolve any complaints regarding the transfer of personal data that we cannot resolve with our users directly.


You may choose to restrict the collection or use of your personal information.  If you have previously agreed to us using your personal information for direct marketing purposes, you may change your mind at any time by contacting us using the details below.


You may request details of the personal information that we hold about you. An administrative fee may be payable for the provision of such information. In certain circumstances, as set out in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth), we may refuse to provide you with personal information that we hold about you.


If you believe that any information we hold about you is inaccurate, out of date, incomplete, irrelevant or misleading, please contact us using the details below. We will take reasonable steps to correct any information found to be inaccurate, incomplete, misleading or out of date.


If you believe that we have breached the Australian Privacy Principles and wish to make a complaint, please contact us using the details below and provide us with full details of the alleged breach. We will promptly investigate your complaint and respond to you, in writing, setting out the outcome of our investigation and the steps we will take to deal with your complaint.

External Links

Our service may contain links to other sites that are not operated by us. If you click on a third- party link, you will be directed to that third party's site. We strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy of every site you visit. We have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of (including information that is submitted to or collected by)  any third-party sites or services.

Children's Privacy

Our services are not designed to appeal to minors. We do not knowingly attempt to solicit or receive any information from anyone under the age of 13. If we discover that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information, we will immediately delete this from our servers. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your child has provided us with personal information, please contact us immediately at privacy@edapp.com.

Appendix 1 – Your Rights 

(a) GDPR

For the purpose of this Privacy Policy the controller of personal data is EdApp and our contact details are set out in the Contact section above. 

The Legal Basis for Processing your information

Under GDPR, the main grounds that we rely upon in order to process personal data collected by our websites and services are the following: 

  • Necessary for entering into, or performing, a contract – in order to perform obligations that we undertake in providing a service to you, or in order to take steps at your request to enter into a contract with us, it will be necessary for us to process your personal data;
  • Necessary for compliance with a legal obligation – we are subject to certain legal requirements which may require us to process your personal data. We may also be obliged by law to disclose your personal data to a regulatory body or law enforcement agency;
  • Necessary for the purposes of legitimate interests – either we, or a third party, will need to process your personal data for the purposes of our (or a third party’s) legitimate interests, provided we have established that those interests are not overridden by your rights and freedoms, including your right to have your personal data protected. Our legitimate interests include responding to requests and enquiries from you or a third party, optimising our website, applications and customer experience, informing you about our products and services and ensuring that our operations are conducted in an appropriate and efficient manner;
  • Consent – in some circumstances, we may ask for your consent to process your personal data in a particular way.

Third Party Service Providers

As mentioned above, we will share your personal information with trusted third parties where we have retained them to provide services that you or our clients have requested, and to perform maintenance or respond to technical incidents affecting our services. You can request a list of sub-processors currently engaged by EdApp and authorised by you by emailing us at privacy@edapp.com.

Where we disclose personal information to third parties, we require minimum standards of confidentiality and data protection from such third parties.

Processing Outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA”)

To the extent that any personal information is provided to third parties outside the EEA, or who will access the information from outside the EEA, we will ensure that approved safeguards are in place to ensure that we comply with GDPR, such as the standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission.

EdApp processes personal information on our servers in many countries around the world. We may process your personal information on a server located outside the country where you live, including outside the EEA. We use datacentres operated by our third party cloud hosting provider, Amazon Web Services (“AWS”) to store user data and data uploaded to our products. 

Retention of Personal Data 

We will retain your personal information for the time necessary to provide the services we perform for you, or to achieve other purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy, and you can always request that we stop processing or delete your personal information (see the section below regarding your rights).

Your rights in respect of information we hold about you 

You have certain rights in relation to personal information we hold about you. Details of these rights and how to exercise them are set out below. We will require evidence of your identity before we are able to act on your request.

Right of Access

You have the right at any time to ask us for a copy of the personal information about you that we hold. Where we have good reason, and if the GDPR permits, we can refuse your request for a copy of your personal information, or certain elements of the request. If we refuse your request or any element of it, we will provide you with our reasons for doing so.

Right of Correction or Completion

If personal information we hold about you is not accurate, out of date or incomplete, you have a right to have the data rectified, updated or completed. You can let us know by contacting us at privacy@edapp.com.

Right of Erasure

In certain circumstances, you have the right to request that personal information we hold about you is erased e.g. if the information is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or processed or our processing of the information is based on your consent and there are no other legal grounds on which we may process the information.

Right to object to or restrict processing

In certain circumstances, you have the right to object to our processing of your personal information by contacting us at privacy@edapp.com. For example, if we are processing your information on the basis of our legitimate interests and there are no compelling legitimate grounds for our processing which override your rights and interests. You also have the right to object to use of your personal information for direct marketing purposes.

You may also have the right to restrict our use of your personal information, such as in circumstances where you have challenged the accuracy of the information and during the period where we are verifying its accuracy.

Right of Data Portability

In certain instances, you have a right to receive any personal information that we hold about you in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.  You can ask us to transmit that information to you or directly to a third party organisation.

The above right exists only in respect of personal information that:

  • you have provided to us previously; and
  • is processed by us using automated means.

While we are happy for such requests to be made, we are not able to guarantee technical compatibility with a third party organisation’s systems. We are also unable to comply with requests that relate to personal information of others without their consent. 

You can exercise any of the above rights by contacting us using any of the methods in the Contact section above.

Most of the above rights are subject to limitations and exceptions.  We will provide reasons if we are unable to comply with any request for the exercise of your rights.

To the extent that we are processing your personal information based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. You can do this by contacting us using the details in the Contact section above.

Automated decision-making

Automated decision-making takes place when an electronic system uses personal information to make a decision without human intervention. It is specifically regulated under GDPR where such decisions are taken which have legal or other significant effects on individuals. It is permitted in the following circumstances:

  • Where it is necessary to enter into or perform our contract with you and appropriate measures are in place to safeguard your rights.
  • In limited circumstances, with your explicit written consent and where appropriate measures are in place to safeguard your rights.

You will not be subject to decisions that will have a significant impact on you based solely on automated processing, unless we have a lawful basis for doing so, we have notified you and given you a right to challenge the decision or to require that the decision be taken by a person.


If you are unhappy about our use of your personal information, you can contact us using the details in the Contact section below. You are also entitled to lodge a complaint with the UK Information Commissioner’s Office using any of the below contact methods:

Telephone: 0303 123 11113

(b) California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”)

The CCPA grants California residents certain additional rights regarding the personal information that EdApp may collect, disclose or sell. For purposes of this section, “Personal Information” means anything that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could be reasonably linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular California consumer or household. We do not collect, use or sell Personal Information of children aged 16 or under.
