All online form data is stored securely on our website (s4scienceportal.co.uk) which is hosted by Swansea University and is backed up on a secure server.
Email Contact – For interactions that involve the S4 Project directly contacting an individual if consent was given. The portal user (educator or learner) will be contacted by a member of the S4 Project team using the email address provided when completing the online form.
Anonymous data is processed for the purpose of statistics and analysis. Anonymising data will involve removing their full name and email address. The school name may be pseudonymised if necessary.
Data collected from the S4 Portal may be made available, in an anonymised dataset, to external bodies for analysis, impact and funding purposes.
