The following FAQs are meant to summarize the information in our Privacy Policy. They are not a replacement nor an addendum to our Policy. 

What personal information do you collect?

Exam.net collects the minimum amount of personal information required to operate our business and deliver our services to you. If you have registered a teacher’s account with us, we collect your name and your email address, what school or organization you are connected to and what subjects you teach. We also collect basic usage data, and any information you choose to share with us, for example if you email us. 

If you are a student, you are invited to use Exam.net by your school or your teacher. For each exam, test or quiz, your teacher chooses the personal information you must provide before starting the exam. It could be one or several of the following: name, email address, class/course/group, telephone number or student ID number. We never use your personal information for any other purpose than to let your teacher connect your texts or answers to you.
