Cookie Consent Exemption
EU users may notice that despite using a cookie, we do not ask you to accept it. This is because our cookie is strictly necessary to provide our service - we could not provide a secure personalised service without it. This means we satisfy Criterion B of Article 5.3 of Directive 2002/58/EC as amended by Directive 2009/136/EC, and are exempt from providing the right to refuse a cookie.
Our services are used by customers in over thirty counties. It would be impractical and expensive to set up and manage servers in each country, so we use centralised servers based in the USA.
We use Google Cloud Platform, which provides far better security, scaling and availability than any system we could afford to build. Google employs the best system engineers in the world, and everything these engineers do to protect Google properties also protects School Interviews. In-depth analysis here.
Our use of Google Cloud Platform does not give Google Search any special access to School Interviews data. We don't use Google authentication or tracking cookies, so there is no way Google can use School Interviews data to identify or track you.
Google offers Data Processing and Security Terms (DPST) that incorporate Standard Contract Clauses (SCC) that meet the security, contracting, and data transfer requirements under EU, UK, and Swiss GDPR data protection laws.
