Continuing on from yesterday's article about Classroom Spies, the following comment was made by one visitor to this site:
"Its true and is happening!
Our son came home from school on Thursday and told us that their class had been asked to do an on-line survey. Many very personal questions were asked about their parents & homelife."
Now here are the questions/points that I would ask/raise with this school, were I parent confronted with learning that my child had to answer an online survey of this nature:
1 What are the security arrangements wrt the data collected?
2 Does it comply with the data protection act?
3 Who will have access to this data?
4 As the child is a minor, parental permission should have been sought before personal data such as this was collected. Why was no permission sought?
5 What do you intend to do with this data?
6 I do not give you permission to collect, use or share this data. Delete it immediately.
Having raised those points with the school, make a formal complaint to the Data Commissioner.
