  1. PROCESSING OF THIRD PARTY DATA.

In general, it is forbidden to provide us with or publish in our Services any third party data. As an exception to the above, the following third party data may be communicated on the Portal:

  • your ratings of other TEACHERSPRO Users provided for in the Services themselves; and
  • data of third parties who have expressly consented to the processing of such data in our Services, i.e. with the informed consent of the third party owner of such data (or their parents/guardian, if applicable) as well as the express authorization in this regard with TeachersPRO, once TeachersPRO has submitted evidence of the corresponding consents through the procedure established in the Portal, or by email to feedback@teacherspro.com.

Therefore, the User shall, to the extent possible, remove or anonymize any information containing personal data of third parties in the contents and materials uploaded by the User to the Portal (e.g. documents with names of pupils or students, photographs with faces of third parties). Insofar as it is not possible (with videos, sound recordings), the User must obtain the informed consent of the interested parties (or parents or legal guardians as the case may be) necessary for these treatments.

In those cases in which the User transmits to the Website or Portal User content/s containing personal data of non-User third parties ("Non-User Third Party Data", for example, first and last names or photos of students, filming, etc.), the User ("Responsible User") is obliged to obtain the informed consent of such Non-User Third Parties or their Legal Guardians appropriate to this Privacy Policy and also:

  • It undertakes and guarantees TeachersPRO that, at the request of the company (by means of e-mail to the e-mail address indicated at the time of registration or the relevant one indicated for this purpose by the User through the Portal prior to the communication process), it will immediately send as soon as possible evidence of compliance - on its part or that of the Responsible Third Party - both of the collection of the necessary informed consent and of the other obligations as the party responsible for the file(s).

TeachersPRO will remove any third party personal data communicated by a User if it discovers that the publication of the same through the Portal does not comply with these conditions.

If you have any questions, please consult the FAQ section of the Portal or contact us at feedback@teacherspro.com.

  1. DISCLOSURE

We treat your personal data confidentially in accordance with applicable law. Your personal data will not be disclosed or transferred to third parties without your consent, except as indicated below.

We may share your personal information with the parties listed below:

  • Service providers that act as data processors, under contracts that meet the guarantees provided by law.
  • Third parties with whom we may choose to sell, transfer or merge parts of our business or our assets. Alternatively, we may seek to acquire other companies or merge with them, if we are party to a bankruptcy or other change of control proceeding.
  • Third parties with whom we must share your information to investigate suspected fraud, harassment or other violations of any law, rule or regulation, or website policies.

We will also disclose any information, whether or not of a personal nature, about the User or the User's use of our Services (a) pursuant to a legal obligation, or (b) to comply with other obligations under the applicable regulations and rules set forth in the Portal Terms. In particular, your user name will be visible in any contribution of yours on the Portal (post, uploaded material) for the purpose of identifying its provenance and/or author.

Likewise, in order to provide our Services correctly and always according to the instructions indicated by the User (including the configuration of the User's Service and his/her actions in TEACHERSPRO), the company will communicate to third parties the personal data that the User has determined to publish. Thus, sometimes (as determined by the User):

  • They may be viewed by certain Users of the Service.
  • They can be viewed by all Users of the Service.
  • They can be viewed worldwide by all Internet users.

In addition, in the case of Registered Users sponsored by an educational entity, the entity that is sponsoring their subscription to the Premium Service may view their personal data (such entity must request their consent and inform them of this according to the means deemed necessary by the entity itself).

  1. INTERNATIONAL TRANSFER OF DATA

The User's personal data provided for this purpose by the User (according to his/her instructions, as indicated in the previous clause of this Policy) may be accessed and/or viewed by other Users of the Portal in all countries of the world for the specific purpose of providing the Service, in particular for communications between Users and the evaluation of their teaching evidence. The User expressly consents to this international transfer of such personal data to other Users, for the purposes of participating in the TEACHERSPRO User community and fostering relationships between Users.

In those cases in which the Responsible User transmits to the Website or Portal content/s of "Non-User Third Party Data", he/she is obliged to obtain the informed consent of such Non-User Third Parties or their Legal Guardians appropriate to this Privacy Policy (especially but not only with respect to necessary international data transfers).

  1. ACCESS AND USE BY USERS AND TEACHERS PRO OF THIRD PARTY PERSONAL DATA

The Service involves two data processing operations for which TeachersPRO is not a data controller:

(a) access by Users to the personal data of other Users that are processed under their responsibility ("Responsible User"), for which TeachersPRO is a data processor; and, if applicable,

(b) access by TeachersPRO and other Users to "Non-User Third Party Data" (as defined in clause 4 of this policy) that is processed under the responsibility of the Responsible User or a Responsible Third Party.

According to the provisions of the applicable regulations on the protection of personal data (RGPD), these accesses by a User and/or TeachersPRO (hereinafter, "Contractor") shall not be considered as communication or transfer of data, but as simple access to third party data necessary for the provision of the Services (including, but not limited to, the functionalities of visualization and evaluation of the activity of other Users), and, consequently, the Contractor, upon accessing such data, shall be considered as "data processor" of such data, and to such effect the provisions of Annex 1 shall apply.

In the event of non-compliance with the obligations set forth in Annex 1, the User as "processor" will be considered responsible for the processing and will be liable for the infringements incurred personally, exonerating TeachersPRO and any other data controller of the accessed data from any liability (without prejudice to the possibility of termination of the contract by TeachersPRO).

  1. OWN AND THIRD PARTY COMMERCIAL COMMUNICATIONS

By completing and submitting your personal data (by clicking on the corresponding box), the User expressly agrees to receive commercial electronic communications from us related to the products and services of Instituto, including alerts, notifications, newsletters, offers and promotions from TeachersPRO and third parties (see next paragraph). If you do not wish to receive such commercial communications, please indicate so on the form or as indicated in each such commercial communication.

Likewise, the User consents to the sending of communications - including electronic and commercial - about services or products of TeachersPRO or third parties (partners or collaborators of TeachersPRO) for advertising or commercial prospecting in the sectors of training and education, publishing, and consumer products.

  1. THIRD PARTY LINKS AND SOCIAL NETWORKING SERVICES

This website may include links to third-party websites, plug-ins and applications. Clicking on those links or enabling those connections may allow third parties to collect or share data about you. We do not control these third party websites and are not responsible for their privacy statements. When you leave our website, we encourage you to read the privacy notice of each website you visit.

The website may integrate social networking services. You understand that we do not control such services and are not responsible for the manner in which they operate. While we may provide you with the ability to use such services in connection with our website, we do so merely as an option and, like you, we rely on those third-party services to operate properly and fairly.

You should be aware that personal data you voluntarily include and transmit online in a blog, social network or other publicly accessible medium may be viewed and used by others. We cannot control such uses of your personal data, and by using such services, you assume the risk that personal data provided by you may be viewed and used by others.

  1. DATA SECURITY

We have implemented appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being lost, accidentally used or accessed in an unauthorized manner, modified or disclosed; however, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee the security of information provided online. We also limit access to your personal data to employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data in accordance with our instructions and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have implemented procedures to address any suspected personal data breaches and will notify you, as well as any relevant regulatory body of any breach where we are required to do so by law.

  1. DATA RETENTION

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which we have collected it, including to comply with legal, accounting or reporting requirements.

In determining the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data, whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and applicable legal requirements.

In some circumstances, you may ask us to delete your data: see Delete requests below for more information.

In some circumstances, we may anonymize your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use and retain this information indefinitely without notice.

  1. YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS

In certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data. You have the right to:

  • Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a "data subject access request"). This allows you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to verify that we are processing it lawfully.
  • Request correction of personal data we hold about you. This allows you to correct any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you, although we may need to verify the accuracy of the new information you provide.
  • Request the deletion (erasure) of your personal data. This allows you to ask us to delete your personal data where there is no good reason for us to continue to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to the processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to delete your personal data in compliance with local law. However, please note that we may not always be able to comply with your deletion request for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
  • Object to the processing of your personal data where, although you have a legitimate interest (or that of a third party), there is something about your particular situation that makes you want to object to the processing in this area because you consider that it has an impact on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object when we process your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may be able to demonstrate that we have legitimate and well-founded interests in processing your information that override your rights and freedoms.
  • Request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. This allows you to ask us to stop processing your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the accuracy of the data; (b) when our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to delete it; (c) when you need us to retain the data, even if we no longer need it to exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data, but we must verify whether we have legitimate reasons to use it.
  • Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide you, or a third party you have chosen, with your personal data in a structured, commonly used and readable format. Please note that this right only applies to automated information that you authorized us by consent to use, as well as information necessary to enter into any contract with you.
  • Withdraw consent at any time where we rely on your consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdrew your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide you with certain products or services. We will notify you if this is the case at the time you withdraw consent.

You will not have to pay any fees to access your personal information (or to exercise any of your other rights). However, we may charge you a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

We may need to ask you for specific information to help us confirm your identity and secure your right to access your personal data (or exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to anyone who is not entitled to receive it. We may also contact you to request further information in relation to your request in order to expedite our response.

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally, it may take us more than one month if your request is particularly complex or if you have made a series of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.

You may file a complaint with the relevant data protection authorities.

To exercise your rights, please contact us at contact@teacherspro.com.

The assignment of rights also includes both the use of all such materials for teaching purposes and their publication in the public virtual spaces in which you interact in TeachersPRO. This license will expire upon termination of the User's membership, without prejudice to keeping a copy of the User Content in TeachersPRO's backup copies for the legally required period of time.

Without prejudice to the prohibitions indicated above, TeachersPRO does not permit the distribution or communication of User Content that deteriorates the quality of the Service or that does not meet the quality parameters established in TeachersPRO.

TeachersPRO does not monitor or supervise the User Content. However, TeachersPRO reserves the right to remove those contents that TeachersPRO considers inappropriate to the characteristics and purposes of TeachersPRO or contrary to these Terms and Conditions or the applicable Particulars (especially but not only in the event that such User Content has been reported). In the event that TeachersPRO must remove User Content, TeachersPRO may also terminate its contractual agreement with the User or temporarily and/or partially suspend its Services to such User.

If you believe that Content posted on TeachersPRO violates this policy, please contact us as set forth below in 10 Notifications.


In order to draft an appropriate legal clause regulating the use of a ChatGPT-based AI to provide expert constructive feedback to TeachersPRO users, it is essential to consider the current legal framework in Finland related to data protection, user privacy, and the use of artificial intelligence. Given my latest point of knowledge in April 2023, relevant legislation would include the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applicable in Finland, as well as local Finnish privacy and technology laws.

The clause should specifically address consent to the use of personal data, the purpose of data processing, transparency about how AI is used, and security measures taken to protect user data. Below, I provide you with an example of how such a clause could be drafted, although I strongly recommend you consult with a technology and data protection lawyer in Finland to ensure compliance with current and country-specific legislation.

  1. Use of Artificial Intelligence for Constructive Feedback Clause in TeachersPRO
  2. Acceptance and Consent: By using the TeachersPRO platform, you expressly agree to the use of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies, including one based on ChatGPT, to analyze evidence of your educational practice and provide personalized constructive feedback. This analysis will be performed respecting your profile and the history of evidence provided to the platform.
  3. Purpose of Data Processing: The information collected and analyzed by AI will be used exclusively for the purpose of improving the quality and relevance of the feedback provided, contributing to your ongoing professional development. This process is based on our commitment to educational excellence and support to the teaching community.
  4. Transparency and User Rights: TeachersPRO is committed to maintaining transparency about the operation of AI and the use of your data. You have the right to request information about the data processed, obtain a copy of such data, and require rectification or deletion of such data, in accordance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and applicable Finnish law.
  5. Security and Data Protection: We are committed to implementing the necessary technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal data against unauthorized access, alteration and any form of illegitimate processing. This includes data encryption, restricted access to authorized personnel, and regular security audits.
  6. Applicable Law and Modifications: This clause is governed by the laws of Finland and the regulations of the European Union, including the GDPR. TeachersPRO reserves the right to modify this clause at any time, in accordance with legislative changes or improvements to our AI practices. Any changes will be communicated through our platform and will become effective immediately upon posting.
  7. Intellectual and Industrial Property Rights

Except as expressly set forth in these General Terms and Conditions and the Particular Conditions of application or in the Creative Commons licenses linked to specific contents, all intellectual and industrial property rights of the contents of TeachersPRO and/or available on or through this portal are reserved.

The texts, designs, images, databases, logos, structure, trademarks and other elements of TeachersPRO are the property of TeachersPRO and are protected by the laws and international treaties on intellectual and industrial property. Any reproduction, transmission, adaptation, translation, modification, communication to the public, or any other exploitation of all or part of the content of TeachersPRO, made in any form or by any means, electronic, mechanical or otherwise, is strictly prohibited without prior written permission from TeachersPRO or third party owners. Any infringement of these rights may result in appropriate civil or criminal judicial or extrajudicial proceedings.

  1. Notifications and complaints

For the purposes of preserving the possible rights of TeachersPRO or third parties, in the event that a User or third party considers that there has been a violation of their own rights or those of third parties, or generally a breach of these General Conditions or the Particular Conditions of application, by the publication of certain content on TeachersPRO, the User or third party must notify this circumstance, in writing, to Instituto Escale, S.L., CIF B-65809667 and registered office at C/. Numancia, no. 185, 2o. 2a, 08034 Barcelona and email to contact@teacherspro.com, indicating (under the email subject "Legal infringement"):

- Identification and indication of the allegedly unlawful content (by URL or other means of locating the content).

- Explanation or justification of why it is considered unlawful or infringing.

- If applicable, identification data of the interested party who is the owner of the allegedly infringed rights. If the claim is filed by a third party other than the interested party, he/she must indicate the representation he/she is acting on behalf of the interested party.

- Accreditation of the existence, ownership and validity of the aforementioned infringed rights.

- Express declaration in which the interested party accepts responsibility for the truthfulness of the data and information provided in the notification referred to in this point.

- Signature and contact information (preferably email and/or telephone).

The User also has the option to make such notification through the "Report" button whose operation is detailed in this link.

In both cases TeachersPRO undertakes to investigate the matter indicated in the notification (hereinafter "Complaint"), and will communicate with the complaining User, as well as the reported User, if applicable, to resolve the matter in the most efficient manner possible, and making reasonable efforts to preserve and defend its own rights and the rights of Users and third parties. TeachersPRO reserves the right, in any event, to remove any reported content, temporarily or permanently, at its discretion.

  1. Warranties and liability

TeachersPRO. TeachersPRO does not undertake to monitor User Content or User activity on TEAGHERSPRO and therefore cannot make any warranties about User Content of any kind.

Except in those cases expressly described in these General Terms and Conditions and the rest of TeachersPRO's regulatory framework, TeachersPRO only accepts liability for direct (consequential) damages and to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law shall not be liable for indirect damages (lost profits) that may be due to lack of accuracy, completeness, timeliness, as well as errors or omissions in the information and services provided by TeachersPRO which may be accessed through the same.

TeachersPRO assumes no liability whatsoever:

  • For the contents, data and/or information provided by the Users of the Portal, in particular, but not limited to, the opinions expressed by the Users and the actions carried out by the Users through the Portal, forums, communities, or other tools for participation or opinion; or
  • For the contents of external websites to which there are links. In particular TeachersPRO does not guarantee that these contents are true, fulfill a certain purpose or can serve that purpose.

TeachersPRO does not guarantee the availability, continuity or infallibility of the operation of the Portal, and consequently excludes, to the maximum extent permitted by current legislation, any liability for damages of any kind that may be due to the lack of availability or continuity of the operation of TeachersPRO and the Services provided therein, as well as errors in access to the various web pages or those from which, where appropriate, such services are provided.

TeachersPRO shall not assume any liability for the non-performance or delay in the performance of any of the obligations assumed under these general conditions, if such non-performance or delay is the result or consequence of an event of force majeure or fortuitous event admitted as such by Jurisprudence.

The Sponsored User. The User Sponsored by an educational entity agrees that, as set forth in the Privacy Policy, the Sponsor may have access to information about its use of the Service, the cost of which is being borne by the Sponsor. The Sponsored User warrants to TeachersPRO that the Sponsor has sufficiently informed the Sponsored User in this regard and (by means unrelated to TeachersPRO) obtained the Sponsored User's consent to this transfer of personal data for the purposes that the Sponsor has indicated to the Sponsored User.

  1. Links to third party sites

TeachersPRO includes within its contents links to sites owned and/or managed by third parties in order to facilitate access to information available through the Internet.

TeachersPRO does not assume any responsibility derived from the existence of links between the contents of this site and contents located outside this site or any other mention of external contents to this site. Such links or mentions are for informational purposes only and in no case imply the support, approval, marketing or any relationship between TeachersPRO and the persons or entities authors and / or managers of such content or owners of the sites where they are located.

  1. User Noncompliance and Indemnity

If the User breaches the clauses of these Terms of Use and/or the applicable legal regulations:

  • User shall indemnify and hold TeachersPRO and any other User or injured third party harmless from and against any and all claims, liabilities, losses, damages, costs and expenses (including attorneys' fees) arising out of any claim arising out of such breach(es).
  • TeachersPRO reserves the right to cancel and/or delete the Contents of the User, to expel and deny access to TeachersPRO, as well as to terminate the contractual relationship with the User and cancel the User's account, without the User being able to claim any compensation whatsoever, as well as to claim the corresponding indemnities from the User.
  1. Resolution

General. The User may unsubscribe at any time, through the process established in the Portal. Otherwise, by email to TeachersPRO at legal@teacherspro.com, attaching a copy of your identity document, which will be verified by TeachersPRO before the cancellation.

TeachersPRO may terminate the contractual relationship with its Users in the following cases:

- By discontinuing all Portal Services, at its discretion, upon at least 30 days' notice.

- For breach of these Conditions by the User, by means of a notification sent to the User's contact email address.

- When required by judicial or administrative order.

Upon termination of this contractual relationship (to one or more Users), TeachersPRO will remove all User Content communicated by such User/s, except for those Contents that for technical reasons or due to the continuity or validity of the use of the contents and materials available on the platform (discussion threads, materials posted and commented by third parties, events or materials shared among several Users, etc.), TeachersPRO cannot remove. In the latter case, it will use reasonable efforts to anonymize the Content of the corresponding User(s) remaining on the Portal.

Specifications with respect to Sponsored Users. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Sponsored User agrees that in the event Sponsor ceases to pay for the Service (either permanently or temporarily), TeachersPRO may retain your data for the purpose of continuing to provide the Service to you. The system will automatically display the price and payment methods available to continue receiving the Service. If the User (until then a Sponsored User) then complies himself with the obligation included in condition 5 "Price, Validity of Offers and Prices; Payments", he will continue to receive the Service. If the User does not comply with this obligation, TeachersPRO may terminate any contractual relationship with the User.

It should be noted that TeachersPRO is not obligated to offer a trial period in these cases since the User is already familiar with the Service.

  1. Applicable Law and Jurisdiction.

The present Legal Conditions and the rest of the conditions of the portal will be governed by the Spanish legislation, without prejudice to the law of obligatory application in any jurisdiction where the consumer User is domiciled.

For any questions that may arise or actions to be exercised arising from the provision of services and contents of TeachersPRO and on the interpretation, application, enforcement or breach of the provisions herein, TeachersPRO and the User:

  • in all cases both parties agree to try to resolve them amicably. For this purpose you can send us your complaint to the e-mail address feedback@teacherspro.com under the subject "complaint".
  • if you are a Consumer User and the law determines that you may submit to a certain jurisdiction, that rule of submission to jurisdiction shall apply.
  • if the above assumption is not applicable nor is there any mandatory law to the contrary, expressly waiving any other jurisdiction that may correspond to them, they submit to the jurisdiction of the Courts and Tribunals of Barcelona.

The European Commission also provides an online dispute resolution platform available at the following link: http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/.
