Data Collection and Security at School Stream

  • names

  • in-app messages
  • app interactions
  • other actions including content and folder preferences

Data Retention for Compliance

For compliance with government and education department audits, certain types of data, including but not limited to, in-app messages, and form submissions intended for your school or organisation, are required to be retained. School Stream maintains these records in accordance with legal and regulatory requirements to ensure transparency and accountability. This retention is critical for providing necessary oversight and maintaining the integrity of our services in educational environments.

Third parties like Zendesk (support/feedback tickets) and Google Analytics/Firebase (anonymous analytics and crash reporting data) may also retain information submitted through the app.

Response Time and Transparency

Upon receiving a deletion request, our team will respond within 7 days, verifying identity through email or phone and providing an estimated timeframe for deletion. General requests are processed within 30 days, while more complex actions may take up to 60 days.


By empowering our users with these options, School Stream ensures a transparent and user-centric approach to data management and security.
