Snapquiz - Privacy Policy

Snapquiz ("We") are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. Please note this privacy policy was based upon and developed from the terms suggested by Host.North, available here.

This policy (together with our terms and conditions of use and any other documents referred to on it) sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be processed by us. Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal data and how we will treat it. We keep certain basic information when you visit our website and recognise the importance of keeping that information secure and letting you know what we will do with it.

For the purpose of the Data Protection Act 1998 (the Act), as this site is currently still in its in beta-testing period and is yet to generate profit, and as the data retained complies with the definitions set out by the Information Comissioner's Office here, we have not yet registered a Data Controller. We will, however, undertake this in due course, and will update this privacy policy as necessary when we have done so.

If, in the meantime, you have any questions about our use of data, please in the first instance refer to our FAQ page, and if you require further assistance then please contact

This policy only applies to our site. If you leave our site via a link or otherwise, you will be subject to the policy of that website provider. We have no control over that policy or the terms of the website and you should check their policy before continuing to access the site.

  • Where We Store Your Personal Data

    The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers. Such staff maybe engaged in the provision of support services. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

    All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

    Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

  • Uses Made of the Information

    We use information held about you in the following ways:
    • To ensure that content from our site is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer.
    • To allow you to participate in interactive features of our service, when you choose to do so.

  • Disclosure of Your Information

    We may disclose your personal information to third parties:
    • In the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we may disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets.
    • If we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, our customers, or others.

  • Your Rights

    You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. We will usually inform you (before collecting your data) if we intend to use your data for such purposes or if we intend to disclose your information to any third party for such purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by checking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data. You can also exercise the right at any time by contacting us at

    Our site may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partner networks, advertisers and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.

  • Access to Information

    The Act gives you the right to access information held about you. Your right of access can be exercised in accordance with the Act. Any access request may be subject to a fee of £10 to meet our costs in providing you with details of the information we hold about you.

    Please note, because for security reasons we do not store complete identifying information or personal email addresses of students, before we provide information about student accounts we will need to verify your identity with the teacher who created that student account. We will do this via the email address that teacher used to sign up to our service. The teacher who creates the student account is the only one who is able to verify the identity of that student. If we are unable to confirm with your teacher that a particular account is indeed yours, then there is no way to verify who the account belongs to, and as such we will be unable to provide access to the information held. This security measure ensures that teachers remain the ones in control of their students' data, and prevents even our own technical team from gaining undue access to personal information about students.

    This authentication procedure, requiring confirmation of the identity of a student with a teacher who knows them personally, is in place to offer maximum protection for any students using our service. If you are a student requesting access to your information, we advise you to inform the teacher who created your account of our student identity verification protocol and that we will be contacting them.

    As an additional security measure, we will begin to automatically delete student records that are more than ten years old, on the basis that no student will be taught by the same individual teacher for over a decade. This process is currently expected to begin in September 2024, though we reserve the right to change the length of time we hold your data before deleting it. If you wish to retain this data for any reason, it is your responsibility to contact us and make arrangements prior to your data expiring. In most cases, we will be unable to restore data once we have purged it from our systems.

    For the purposes of verifying student identities, we will retain all the data in teacher records (not including student data) for a period after the last student record that teacher created has been deleted.

  • Changes to our privacy policy

    Any changes we may make to our privacy policy in the future will be posted on this page and, where appropriate, notified to you by e-mail. However, we advise that you check this page regularly to keep up to date with any necessary changes.
