What Personal Information Do We Collect
“Personal information” (or “personal data”) generally means any information about an individual from which that person may be identified. For example, it may include your name, email address, and your IP address, device ID and location information. It does not include data from which the identity of an individual has been definitively removed along with any identifiers connected to such individual.
Depending on who you are – such as a student or a teacher – and how you use the Services, we collect different types of information. We collect personal information directly from you when you provide it to us, as well as indirectly through automated technologies such as cookies.
Information Collected Directly

When you sign up for our Services, we always collect your name and email address. Once you have registered, you have the option of providing more information about yourself, including a profile photo. Please be aware that, if you include a photo, it may be viewed by other users of the Services.
If you are a teacher, we will ask you for additional information. Teachers must provide proof of certification(s) and/or teaching credentials before they can begin teaching via the Services. Once those credentials are uploaded to deepmove's dashboard, we will review and either admit the new teacher, or request additional credentials, should those provided be invalid or insufficient.
Payments are collected by our payment processor, as explained here.
You may register to join or log in to the Services directly or by using a third-party platform sign-in via Apple or Google.

How Long Do We Keep Your Personal Information?
We will retain the personal information that we collect where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so, including to provide you with our Services or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements.

If this is not immediately possible because your personal information has been stored in backup archives, we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible. If you have questions about, or need further information concerning, our data retention periods, please send an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Protecting Your Personal Information

We have put in place reasonably appropriate security measures designed to prevent your personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorized way, altered or disclosed.
We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. If required by applicable law, we will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach.

Categories of Recipients of Personal Data
The categories of recipients of personal data with whom we may share your personal data are listed in Disclosure of Your Personal Information above.
Purpose of the Processing and Legal Bases
deepmove processes your personal data for a number of different purposes. Some are essential for us to provide the App, Site and Services or to fulfill our legal obligations, while some help us run the Services efficiently and effectively. In all cases we must have a legal ground for processing your personal data, as explained below.
Performance of a Contract
- Teaching credentials
- Transaction information
- Device and Usage Information
We may process personal data where we believe that it furthers our legitimate business interests, but only to the extent that they our interests are not outweighed by your fundamental rights and freedoms. We generally rely on legitimate interests to provide and maintain the App, the Site and the Services, to ensure that they work well and securely, to carry out fraud prevention, or to generally improve the Services. We process the following categories of personal data when we believe it furthers the legitimate interest of us or third parties:
- Teaching credentials
- Device and Usage Information
Examples of these legitimate interests include:
- Communicating with individuals who contact us via the App or otherwise
- Responding to and fulfilling your requests or other inquiries
- Understanding how you use the App and/or Site, as well as the Services, and performing research and analytics
- For security, debugging and fraud protection
In some cases, and as may be required by law, we may process personal data based on the consent you grant to us at the time we collect such data. When we process personal data based on your consent, it will be expressly indicated to you at the point and time of collection, and you always have the choice of withdrawing your consent.
Other Processing Grounds
From time to time we may also need to process personal data to comply with a legal obligation, if it is necessary to protect the vital interests of you or other data subjects, or if it is necessary for a task carried out in the public interest.
How Long Do We Keep Your Personal Information?
We use the following criteria to determine our retention periods: the amount, nature and sensitivity of your information, the reasons for which we collect and process your personal data, the length of time we have an ongoing relationship with you and provide you with access to our App, the Site and our Services, and applicable legal requirements. We will retain personal information we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to comply with applicable legal, tax, or accounting requirements), when we are unable to reasonably verify your identity, or as may otherwise be required by applicable applicable law. Additionally, we cannot delete information when it is needed for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims (also known as a “litigation hold”). In this case, the information must be retained as long as needed for exercising respective potential legal claims.
When we have no ongoing business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
Staying in Control of Your Information: Your Rights

For more information about these rights, or to submit a request, please email us at email@example.com. Please note that in some circumstances, we may not be able to fully comply with your request, such as if it is frivolous or extremely impractical, if it jeopardizes the rights of others, or if it is not required by law, but in those circumstances, we will still respond to notify you of such a decision. In some cases, we may also need you to provide us with additional information, which may include personal data, if necessary to verify your identity and the nature of your request.
- Access: You can request more information about the personal data we hold about you and request a copy of such personal data.
- Rectification: If you believe that any personal data we are holding about you is incorrect or incomplete, you can request that we correct or supplement such data.
- Erasure: You can request that we erase some or all of your personal data from our systems.
- Withdrawal of Consent: If we are processing your personal data based on your consent (as indicated at the time of collection of such data), you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. Please note, however, that if you exercise this right, you may have to then provide express consent on a case-by-case basis for the use or disclosure of certain of your personal data, if such use or disclosure is necessary to enable you to utilize some or all of our Services.
- Portability: You can ask for a copy of your personal data in a machine-readable format. You can also request that we transmit the data to another controller where technically feasible.
- Objection: You can contact us to let us know that you object to the further use or disclosure of your personal data for certain purposes, such as for direct marketing purposes.

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights) unless your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive, or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request under those circumstances.
We will respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally, it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated as required by law.
