This addendum

This Data Processing Addendum (the DPA) to the FamiyBookform Terms of Service applies whenever we process personal data on behalf of schools and other educational establishments (referred to in this DPA as ‘you’). We do this when teachers or students upload content that contains personal data to a book created using the eBookform technology. More information about the personal data that we process and the purposes for processing is set out in the Schedule to this DPA.
