Last Updated: 4 Nov, 2014

This Privacy Policy explains how information about you is collected, used and disclosed by Scriblr Education when you use our websites, mobile applications and other online products and services (collectively, the "Services") or when you otherwise interact with us.

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the date at the top of the policy and, in some cases, we may provide you with additional notice (such as adding a statement to our website's homepage or sending you a notification). We encourage you to review the Privacy Policy whenever you access the Services to stay informed about our information practices and the ways you can help protect your privacy.

Your Choices

Privacy Settings

Through settings on our Website, you can choose whether or not to take photos with the school attendance functionality.

Account Information

You may update or correct information about yourself by editing your account settings within the Scriblr Education website. If you wish to delete your account, please click on your "Preference" and then on the link "Close Account", but note that we may retain certain information as required by law, for legitimate business purposes, or as part of our regular retention practices. We may also retain cached or archived copies of information about you for a certain period of time.

Image taking

Certain features of the Services require access to your tablet's / phone's image taking applications (e.g. when you have selected a photo to be taken each time you select an option). If you later decide to revoke your consent and prevent us from continuing to access your photo taking applications, you can do so by changing the settings as Administrator.


When you first launch any features of our Services that collect location information, you will be asked to consent to our collection of this information. If you initially consent to our collection of location information, you can subsequently stop the collection of this information by changing the preferences on the website. You may also stop our collection of location information by setting that no IP addresses should be collected.


A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website’s server and only that server will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers. It allows a website to remember things like your password. Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove or reject browser cookies. Please note that if you choose to remove or reject cookies, this could affect the login on the website and a password would need to be provided each time you access the Services.
