Third Party User Consent Information

The use of web based educational resources has risen steadily over the last decade.  Teachers are increasingly using these resources across Queensland to improve student-learning outcomes.
Our school and teachers make decisions about the best technology to meet the needs of our students.  While the Department provides most of the resourcing we use at school, sometimes a need exists that is not included.  On these occasions, it is beneficial for students to utilise services provided by third party web based providers.
Coomera Springs State School wishes to utilise the third party web based service providers listed below to aid students learning.  For your child to use these services, their teacher will need to register them as a user. Registering with these providers requires student personal information to be disclosed to the provider of the service.  Registration may include disclosing the following information about your student:
·         Student Name
·         Year group
·         Class Teacher
·         Student Education Queensland email address
In the case of the services outlined below they are private companies that are hosted onshore in Australia and/or outside of Australia.  Outside of Australia means that data that is entered to register for these sites will be stored on servers that are not based in Australia and therefore are not bound by Queensland’s privacy laws.
We need your permission for the registration and use of these sites by your child.  Please complete the consent form on the reverse of this page and return it to your child’s teacher.
Note: It is not compulsory for you to provide this consent – If you decide not to provide consent, this will not adversely affect academic achievement, or any relationships with teachers or the school.
Before you complete this consent form it is important that you understand the reasons that these websites collect this information, what will be done with it, who may have access to it and where the data is stored. This information can be found in the hyperlinks below referring to each website’s terms and conditions and/or privacy policy.
Please read these and ensure that you understand the implications of using this service before giving your consent. If you have any queries around the storage of student’s information, please feel free to contact the Principal. Please note that, given the significance that these services provide, the school will contact you to discuss your reasons should you not consent or fail to provide a response.
