ParentPay and GDPR

Our responsibility to customers

ParentPay is now meeting the requirements of the GDPR legislation.

Our promise to customers and partners: 

  • We only manage data with agreement of the data controller
  • We will use and continue to update safeguards around data handling
  • Impose confidentiality requirements on its personnel
  • Work to help the controller meet the rights of the data subjects.

Helping your school demonstrate compliance

Under the data protection law, controllers (i.e. the schools) will need to demonstrate their compliance, which in turn means they need to assess the compliance of all of their service suppliers.

As a supplier of a service to schools, ParentPay expects to be scrutinised by its customers.

In order to make the task of vetting their suppliers easier and more focussed for schools, ParentPay has partnered with the UK trusted data experts GDPRiS (GDPR in Schools)

How GDPRiS can help your school

ParentPay have joined Capita, GroupCall and several other leading educational suppliers to work with GDPRiS.

School, local authority and MAT subscribers can use GDPRiS to streamline the school’s effort of achieving, demonstrating and retaining their compliance to GDPR.
