If we do not make the correction, we will take reasonable steps to note on the personal information that you requested the correction. We may charge you our reasonable costs of providing to you copies of your personal information or correcting that information.

If you want to exercise either of the above rights, email us at support@edgelearning.co.nz.

Google Data Usage

Integration with Google Drive: Our application, Edge, features integration with Google Drive, enabling users to seamlessly upload documents and files from Google Drive into the Edge platform. This integration is designed to enhance user experience by providing a direct and efficient method for accessing and managing documents stored on Google Drive.

Authentication through Google Login: To ensure a secure and user-friendly experience, Edge utilizes Google login for authentication purposes. This means that when you log into our application, you can use your Google account credentials. This integration not only streamlines the login process but also enhances security, as Google's robust authentication protocols are leveraged.

Data Access and Privacy: When you connect your Google Drive with Edge, our application will request permission to access certain documents and files from your Google Drive. This access is strictly limited to the documents and files that you choose to upload to Edge. We do not access, view, or manage any other files in your Google Drive without your explicit consent.

Data Usage: The data accessed from Google Drive is used solely for the purpose of providing the services associated with Edge. We do not use your Google data for any other purposes, nor do we share this data with any third parties without your consent.

User Control and Transparency: You have complete control over the data shared between Google Drive and Edge. At any point, you can revoke our access to your Google data through your Google account settings. However, files that have already been uploaded to Edge will remain unless you delete them. Additionally, we are committed to transparency and will provide clear notifications regarding any changes to the way we access or use your Google data.

Data Security: Ensuring the security of your data is our top priority. We implement industry-standard security measures to protect the data accessed from Google Drive, ensuring that it is safeguarded against unauthorized access and breaches.

Compliance with Google's Policies: Our integration with Google Drive is fully compliant with Google's policies and guidelines. We ensure that our use of Google data adheres to these standards, maintaining the integrity and privacy of your data.

We use the technical information we collect for administration and auditing of our website, services and products, to have a better understanding of the way people use them, to improve the way they work, and to personalise them (and any advertising displayed on them) to be more relevant or useful to your particular needs and interests. We may also use this information to investigate a dispute or for troubleshooting purposes.
