Sharing of your information

The developer has access to all information.

Instructor addresses are submitted to Google to calculate road distances to place of work, which helps us make decisions on where your training will take place. The Google Maps API is also used to populate fields in your expense claim form.

Your name and DBS number are viewable by school staff - when they log in to the system - to satisfy safeguarding requirements. Your name and DBS number can be seen by staff at those schools on your schedule.

Your name, contact details and work locations for selected dates are shared with the Instructor Training Organisation, Kingston Council, to arrange mentoring visits.

If you gained your accreditation through Surrey County Council then your contacts details will have been provided to the Instructor Training Organisation running your accreditation course to enable them to provide you with course materials and venue details.

Where your information is stored

The personal information you share with us is stored in a database on a live server. A list of pages you visit are stored on a live server in separate log files.

For how long is your information retained?

Your personal information on the website is retained whilst you are employed by Surrey County Council. After you leave, your name will still be recorded against courses you taught and will also be on the copies of the course register for their retention period.

How information is protected against breaches

The servers are protected with two independent firewalls. All ports excepting those required for operation of a website are closed or access regulated by IP address.

All communications with the servers are encrypted to prevent man-in-the-middle attacks.

The hosting is cloud-based so there is no single physical presence, however data centres are protected by 24 hour security. Data Centres are located in the UK.

How information is protected against losses

Data are backed up daily and stored securely off-site for 1 month. After one month data are destroyed.

Cloud-base hosting ensures there is no single point of hardware failure.
