Privacy notice Moodle Mobile Application

Who are we?

Moodle Pty Ltd is a software company which allows educators, of any kind, to create a private space online, filled with tools that easily create courses and activities, all optimised for collaborative learning. The Moodle® software is open source, and may be hosted by Moodle Pty Ltd, but also by anyone who wishes to manage an installation. The Moodle Mobile Application is the mobile version of the Moodle software made available by Moodle Pty Ltd.

Beyond the Moodle Mobile Application, users can access additional services through external websites hosted or not by Moodle Pty Ltd. In such cases if collection and processing of personal data is required user consent is obtained by the relevant external supplier and should be compliant with relevant privacy laws. Because we take privacy very seriously we have adopted the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as our company’s global standard.

What’s covered by this Privacy Notice?

Under the GDPR personal data is: “any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. An identifiable natural person is anyone who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.


Why the Moodle Mobile application doesn't need to collect and store personal data?

We do not need your personal data to provide you with our Moodle Mobile Application and we have no interest in collecting data beyond making our service(s) work for you.

If we provide you with separate additional services through external installations hosted or not by Moodle Pty Ltd, we will always seek a confirmation from you that it’s ok to do that. 

For avoidance of doubt, in case the installation the user accesses via the Moodle Mobile Application is hosted by Moodle Pty Ltd as part of a MoodleCloud service, we process users’ personal data in the MoodleCloud installation only but not in Moodle Mobile Application.
