Data sharing and collection information.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

For students at Ao Tawhiti this website is where we store notes and information on your individual learning programme. This includes goals you set for yourself, progress towards them and anything else pertinent to your learning at Ao Tawhiti.

This information is only accessible by you,  your caregivers and staff at Ao Tawhiti. An authenticated student account can only view another user’s names and homebase code. No student information is viewable without authentication.


Google Authentication

If you have an account on this website, we provide the ability to use Google OAuth to authenticate yourself when logging in.  Other than your email address, we do not use or store any information from your Google profile.



If you have an account and you log in to this site, this website may use cookies to retain authentication details and login information. These cookies will last no longer than a month.


Who we share your data with

We do not share your data with third parties.


Kamar directory service

We sync your user information from Kamar nightly. We only sync usernames, email, passwords and id’s needed for this site. 


How long we retain your data

Your data is retained through your schooling. When you leave Ao Tawhiti your account access is changed and you may no longer add new content. You will still be able to access and view all your content.

For users that are registered on our website, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. Website administrators and staff  can also see and edit that information.
