- languages online extra keeps a record of your first name, surname and e-mail address, as well as your town and country, if you have supplied these details. This is needed to allow you to have an account on the site, and to be identified by your teacher within your course as well as by me as site administrator. In addition, if you actively and voluntarily add any further information to your profile, this is also saved by the website in your account area. Please note that any information you add on your profile page can only be seen by you.
- Once you begin completing exercises within your languages online extra course(s), the website will retain your scores in your grades area. This allows you, and your teacher, to track your progress. This information is visible only to you, to your teacher and to me, the site administrator.
- Other students assigned to the same course as you can see your name within the course class list when they click on “Participants” in the menu, as well as your profile picture, if you have set one. If they click on your name, they can see only your name and what badges you have earned on the course. No further personal information from your profile is visible to other student course users.
- The Teacher within your course has access to your basic account data (first name, surname, e-mail address, profile picture, town or city and country (if you have entered this)), as well as all tracking data to do with your progress on the site – marks for activities, date and time completed and badges earned.
