The Development Map™ by WatchMeGrow™ is the main source of data capture although simple client contact details may be held for communication and marketing purposes. The Development Map™ is the software which enables teaching professionals in a setting to input information about an individual child’s progress and to track their development over time. The data can then be used to produce reports about the child which tracks their development against early years learning goals. This data is for use in settings by the teaching professionals and also for sharing with parents. In time it will be available for parents to access via a secure intranet through a web browser.

Once a setting has registered and purchased the Development Map™ the software is accessed via a web browser. Data from observations will be input by professional staff at each setting directly into the Development Map™ software. Data will be added by the setting over time. Reports for each child and the setting overall can be produced and down loaded by the setting at any time.

Security of Data and Data Protection

The Development Map™ has been designed to ensure that client information is protected to safeguard confidentiality, integrity and availability. All information you provide to us is stored on secure servers. Access to the Development Map™ can only be gained via secure login processes including complex passwords. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of the Website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. Passwords can only be re-set via a known registered email address making such a request. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to the Website; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

Where you require that we delete any personal data which has been provided by you or any third party end user of Service, we will comply with any written request to do so.

Data is backed up on a daily basis to the secure server(s). Any data which you have exported should be backed up by you.

Control of Data

The Managing Director is WatchMeGrow’s and the Development Map’s Data Controller. Personal data is only accessed and managed by authorised persons who have been trained to do so.

We do not share your data with any third parties except where we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply our terms of use or terms and conditions of supply and other agreements; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of WatchMeGrow, our customers, or others.
