Data Privacy

We believe that careful and appropriate use and analysis of data offers a real opportunity to improve learning outcomes everywhere and increase the positive impact that education has on people’s lives.

Pearson’s role is as a steward rather than the owner of student data, and therefore we are governed by and adhere to the terms and conditions of our contracts with states, institutions and learners themselves. Within the bounds set out by these arrangements, we are committed to using data to improve the quality and efficacy of our services for learners.

Pearson strives at all times to act as a careful steward of our institutions’ and learners’ data. When we are entrusted with student data by our customers, we work diligently with them to protect that information.

We take our responsibility to protect our customers’ and learners’ data extremely seriously and have systems, processes and expert staff devoted to implementing such security controls, and verifying data protection, across our business.
