Personal Information means information or an opinion about an identified individual, or an individual who is reasonably identifiable whether the information or opinion is true or not and whether the information or opinion is recorded in a material form or not.
Survey data means information you provide in response to survey questions.
We, Us and Our means your school and the person(s) in your school responsible for the management and administration of the survey program.
You or Your refers to any user who responds to surveys administered through the site including members of a school community.
As far as possible, We will not collect information which identifies, or may identify, any person.
Specific survey questions are set by Us. In some cases, questions are used that have national application rather than being specific to Our school and We have obtained them from survey question libraries.
We collect Your survey responses and retain ownership of the survey data. Data collected will be reviewed and used by Us. Survey data may be included in Our school's annual report and may be provided to other parties. We will not, to the best of Our ability, publish survey data that identifies any individual.
You must not include any information in responses that is unlawful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory or offensive. We or ESA may delete information of this nature without notice.
You must not impersonate any other person or entity.
Your school administrator or ESA may modify, suspend or discontinue the online survey without notice, on a temporary or permanent basis, if it is necessary for the integrity and availability of the site.
Survey data will be stored in Australia under the control of ESA. ESA has in place security measures to ensure that survey data is stored securely. Data stored by ESA will not be accessed by unauthorised third parties except where required by law.
Unless otherwise indicated, intellectual property rights subsisting in the site are owned by ESA on behalf of ACARA and the Australian Government Department of Education.
