Education Development International plc (‘EDI’) is committed to protecting your privacy. Before proceeding, please read the following important information which concerns the protection of your personal data.
Purposes for which we gather information about you
EDI will hold and process any personal information that you as a user provide to EDI on this website ("the Site") in order to facilitate and enhance the services which EDI provides. EDI may also use such information for the purposes of identifying and carrying out research about the users of its services and to provide you with information about offers which EDI believes will be of interest to you. EDI may from time to time make your personal information available to carefully selected third parties. EDI may also make your personal information available to third parties where there is a legal obligation to do so.
Information requests and updates
Please be assured that, on request from you, EDI is happy to provide details of any personal information that you have provided to EDI (this may be at a charge) and / or to cease to make use of your personal information for the purposes mentioned above. As EDI takes the issue of protecting your personal data seriously, EDI follows strict storage and disclosure procedures which means that EDI will require proof of identity from you prior to disclosing such information.
So that EDI may provide you with an optimum service and comply with its obligations under UK Data Protection legislation, EDI would be grateful if you could please contact the EDI Enquiries team in the event that any personal information that you have provided becomes inaccurate or out of date.
EDI cannot be held accountable for any outdated information provided. However, once updated information is provided by you, EDI will endeavour to update your stored information within a reasonable period of time.
Transfer of information overseas
As EDI is an organisation with educational contacts in a number of countries outside the United Kingdom, EDI may from time to time have occasion to send your personal information overseas (including outside the European Economic Area). EDI will consider your confirmation given below to be explicit consent to this.
As you may be aware, no data transmission over the Internet can be entirely secure. As a result, whilst EDI will always use reasonable endeavours to protect the personal information you provide, EDI cannot guarantee the security of your information and the transmission of your personal information. EDI shall have no liability for loss of information or its corruption and therefore any information provided is at your own risk.
EDI’s Rights to User's Material
If you send any communications or materials to the Site by electronic mail or otherwise, including any comments, data, questions, suggestions or the like, all such communications are, and will be treated as, non-confidential and non-proprietary. Thus, you give up any claim that any use of such material violates any of your rights including moral rights, privacy rights, proprietary or other property rights, publicity rights, rights to credit for material or ideas, or any other right, including the right to approve the way EDI uses such material.
Any material submitted to this Site may be adapted, broadcast, changed, copied, disclosed, licensed, performed, posted, published, sold, transmitted or used by EDI anywhere in the world, in any medium, forever. Furthermore, EDI is free to use, without any compensation to you, any concepts, ideas, know-how or techniques contained in any communication you send to the Site for any purpose whatsoever, including but not limited to developing, manufacturing and marketing products using such information. However, you agree and understand that EDI is not obligated to use any such ideas or materials and you have no rights to compel such use.
Internet transmissions are never completely private or secure. You understand that any message or information you send to this Site may be read or intercepted by others unless there is a special notice that a particular message (for example, credit card information) is encrypted (sent in code). Sending a message to EDI does not cause EDI to have any special responsibility to you.
This Site may contain contests or offers that require you to send in material or information about yourself. Each contest has its own rules, which you must read and agree to before you may enter.
