Data Privacy

We strive to protect the rights, freedoms and dignity of all of those who entrust us with their personal information, including learners, customers and employees.

We recognize our responsibility to keep their personal information safe and secure, and we have systems, processes and expert staff devoted to implementing such security controls, and safeguarding data protection, across our business.

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.
