Personal data protection

Elementary schools collect, process, store, forward and use information from databases they keep in accordance with the regulations on personal data protection.

Personal information of pupils from databases is collected, processed, stored and used for the needs of compulsory education, and forwarded to the ministry responsible for education to carry out tasks determined by law, and to the National Examinations Centre to carry out national examinations.

Personal information may be used and published for the needs of scientific and research work, and the implementation of statistical analyses in a manner that does not disclose the identity of pupils.

Databases of pupils, their progress, issued certificates and other documents are kept permanently, while other databases managed by elementary schools are kept for one year following the conclusion of schooling of pupils.
