G-Suite for Education

At International School of Lusaka(ISL), we use G Suite for Education as a basis for provision of technology to both staff and students.

G Suite for Education is a set of secure, cloud-native collaboration education productivity tools from Google which includes Gmail, Calendar, Docs, Classroom and more used by tens of millions of Students and Teachers around the world. ISL students use their G Suite accounts to complete assignments, collaborate with peers, communicate with their teachers, sign into their Chromebooks, and learn 21st century digital citizenship skills.

We are now required to get parental consent to offer this service to student by the EUs General Data Protection Regulation and Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and and Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act due to the age of our learners. Kindly see below some common questions about G Suite core service, additional services and what Google can and can’t do with your child’s personal information:

What personal information does Google collect?
How does Google use this information?
Will Google disclose my child’s personal information?
Does Google use student personal information for users in K-12 schools to target advertising?
Can my child share information with others using the G Suite for Education account?

Thankfully Google provides information about the information it collects, as well as how it uses and discloses the information it collects from G Suite for Education accounts in its G Suite for Education Privacy Notice. You can read the notice here
