JUNIOR MATHS

Privacy Policy

As the majority of visitors who purchase memberships on Junior Maths (herein referred to as members) are young adults, we take the privacy of our members very seriously. Our Privacy Policy, as described below, reflects this stance in a transparent manner.

Anyone who uses this website, be they visitors, members or otherwise, will herein be referred to as users.

Data can be collected from users in various different ways, each of which is outlined and described in the policy below.

By using this website, a user agrees with this policy as described.

Membership

When purchasing an individual membership, or a school licence, a user provides Junior Maths with the following information:

\[\,\]

1) Email address

This is requested for three reasons:

  • to send a confirmation email that the order was successful
  • to be used as a “username” when logging in
  • to inform a member about any substantial changes to either the Terms and Conditions or the Privacy Policy herein discussed

This email address is not used for any other purpose and is not shared externally (unless we are legally obligated to do so).

\[\,\]

2) Payment details

This is requested only so that a membership (or school licence) purchase may be processed.

Payment details are processed securely by an external payment provider (Stripe or PayPal) and are never stored on our servers.

When making a payment on Junior Maths, visitors are therefore instead bound by the Privacy Policy of the corresponding payment provider (Stripe or PayPal), of which Junior Maths is in no way affiliated.

Browser

When accessing the website through a browser, data may be collected in various forms, including a user’s IP address, browser type and version, the time spent on the website and other diagnostic data.

The collection of this data is used only for the following reasons:

  • to address any technical difficulties that a user may be having
  • to ensure that a user is not breaking the Terms and Conditions of the website
  • to improve the user experience on Junior Maths

This data is not used for any other purpose and is not shared externally (unless we are legally obligated to do so).

Media

When members use the Teacher Chat feature, they may upload attachments, typically in the form of images or screenshots. This media is used only to answer any questions relating to that media. Such media is not used for any other purpose and is not shared externally (unless we are legally obligated to do so).

When booking a grind, the user has the option, with their parent’s permission, to have that grind recorded. If that request is made, this grind will be uploaded as an unlisted video and will remain uploaded for at least 3 years to ensure that it can be accessed by the student at any point up to their final exam. 

Such recordings are not used for any other purpose and are not shared externally (unless we are legally obligated to do so). Users are also entitled to request that this recording be removed at any point within these 3 years.

Cookies

When visiting and/or logging into the website, Junior Maths creates a temporary cookie in order to determine if a user is willing to accepts cookies. This cookie does not contain any personal data and is discarded when the user’s browser is closed.

If a user is willing to accept cookies, Junior Maths may use various types of cookies as a user navigates the website, including cookies associated with security and user preferences.

When a member logs in, cookies are created regarding login information and the user’s screen display options. If a member chooses the Remember Me option when logging in, that member’s login will persist on the device for which this option was chosen. When manually logging out, such cookies are then removed.
