Schools will refer students with pseudonym to ensure privacy




It is ‘desirable’ that schools will inform parents about their children’s private data as they pass on to publishing teaching methods. That says Secretary Dekker. Moreover, schools will use pseudonyms in the data so as to ensure privacy.

The passing of the private data of children is permitted by State Sander Dekker, because it is intended to make education better. The purpose of the publisher would then be the same as the purpose of the school. Therefore, it is to inform their parents not required, argues Dekker. “Well, I think it desirable that schools are attracting increasing attention to this subject, good processor conclude agreements and inform parents about right.”

Dekker published a report in April which PricewaterhouseCoopers found that this way of acting or is in conflict with the law, in September. Which turned him to criticism because several MPs accused him of deliberately holding back this information.

The Minister says that there will be measures to ensure privacy. Schools would use a pseudonym for their students, allowing data they transmit not be linked to the children. Thus the system needs to be able to help students individually by analyzing data, may persist. When the pseudonyms comes, is still unknown.
