Privacy Policy & Student Protection

Summary

We don’t share your data with anyone and it is stored safely on our servers in Australia provided by ventraip.com.au. Student portfolios and sites are publicly available on the internet. However individual pages on a student’s site can be password protected and the entire site can be made private and unavailable on the internet.

All site registrations require an email address and password which will never be shared with any other party.

Media

If you upload images to your website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included and any other identifying images or information. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms & Cookies

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

Embedded content from other websites

This site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

We don’t share your data with anyone. For users that register on our website, we only store your email address and password which Website administrators can also see and edit.

Anonymity

By default StudentSites is setup to prevent any communication or interaction with Users creating Sites for student protection reasons.

All pages on all created sites can be fully password protected, if desired, so that anybody wishing to view published sites will need the password from the site owner.

When creating sites, users of StudentSites need to ensure that they don’t inadvertently place identifying information on their Site such as names, photos or geolocation data etc.

For some sites you may deliberately want to advertise details about your School or Class but this should only be done under the direct guidance of your Teacher/School. For example, you may want to create a class project website and then link or embed that on your school website?

Websites created on StudentSites are hosted on the internet and can be viewed by anyone who has the URL so Users need to take responsibility and consider preserving their anonymity when adding content to their Site Pages or password protect viewing of their pages.

Page Comments

Page comments are turned off throughout StudentSites by default for student protection reasons i.e. site viewers on the internet cannot post comments like a blog etc. As mentioned above, even viewing the site can be password protected easily by the site owner.
