Welcome to Exam.net (“the Service”, “the Services”, “the Platform”, “the Website”),
provided to you (“the user”, “you”) by one of the following:
jointly “Exam.net”, “we”, “us”.
The Platform is a cloud-based service which assists teachers in carrying out on-line exams with their students. The access and subscription is administered by the relevant educational institution attended by the students.
The Services are not intended for use by users under the age of 18, provided however, that students may use the Services for educational purposes at the invitation and direction of their school or teacher. We do not knowingly collect information from users under the age of 18, other than students using the Services at the invitation of their school.
In some cases, we may need to verify the provided user information, in order to make sure that you are an eligible user. You accept that we share certain personal information of yours, such as name and email address, with your school representatives (for example head teacher, school administrator or similar) for that purpose.
As a user, you are entitled to close or remove your account from the Platform at any time, provided that such removal will not delete data, content and materials owned by the educational institution.
The Services are primarily aimed at teachers as users, but users could also be employed in other teaching roles or administrative functions. Students do not have accounts, and only use the Platform at the invitation and direction of their school or teacher.
Using the Services
After having registered your account, you are able to create and upload tests, quizzes, exams and similar material (in this document referred to as “exams”) on the Platform. Exams that are uploaded to the Platform are considered User material, please refer to the section section INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS AND USER MATERIAL for terms and conditions on User material.
For each exam, you may enable and disable a range of tools in the exam settings, and you select what personal information the students have to enter before starting the exam. When you are finished editing the exam and its settings, you may let students access the exam and see the questions and/or the writing area in the Platform by distributing a so-called “exam key”. The students go to exam.net, enter the exam key along with their personal information as selected by you, and then gain access to the specific exam.
During the exam, you can monitor the progress of the students’ work on the Platform.
When the exam is finished, the students’ answers may be viewed by you. Students’ answers may also be printed and/or downloaded to a chosen space or folder of your choice and control, for sake of clarity, outside of the Platform.
Student personal information notice
Exam.net has no other purpose to collect and process student personal information apart from ensuring that the teacher can connect submitted answers to the right student and to prevent cheating. Exam.net does not use student personal information or contact details for its own use.
The responsibility for ensuring that applicable parties have provided consent, if applicable, to Exam.net’s collection and processing of student information lies solely on the educational institution and its principal organizer. Exam.net shall not be responsible for obtaining such consent and shall not be held liable in the event the educational institution has failed to obtain a valid consent from the students and/or their legal representatives.
