The legal bases for which we collect and use the information depends on what the information is and why we collected it.  

WHERE THE SCHOOL OR ORGANISATION IS THE DATA CONTROLLER

Where an application is provided to a user by a school or organisation which uses the provided platform to add the parent and their child’s relevant data then the school is fulfilling the role of Data Controller and Life Ninja Education Ltd (the application and platform publisher) is fulfilling the role of a Data Processor. 

In the event you wanted to exercise any of your rights under GDPR you would contact the school to make your request. Life Ninja Education Ltd admin systems have been designed to help schools or organisations easily fulfil their obligations under GDPR, we also will assist schools or organisations as required to help them fulfil any such obligations as required.

THE FOUR LEGAL BASIS WE RELY ON

Contract. This means we need the information to perform our contract with you.  For example, in order to create a login to your school or organisation account we need to be provided with your email address. 

Legitimate Interests. This means we have a legitimate interest that does not outweigh your privacy rights. When we collect and process information based on our legitimate interests, we consider how we can accomplish what we need to in a way that is the least obtrusive on your privacy. 

Legal Obligation. We may need to use your personal information to comply with a law enforcement preservation request, subpoena, or other legal process or to protect the rights of other users.

Consent. If we have no other legal basis for collecting or using your information, we will ask you for consent for a specific purpose.  If we do, you have the right to withdraw consent at any time.
