Social features and private messaging
An important part of education is communication, and Memory attempts to support this by offering social and chat facilities for which we do our best to ensure a duty of care towards users. The non-Schools version of Memory offers private messaging services and public forums to allow users to communicate. Any user account created on the Schools version of Memory will be unable to use messaging or social services. Public forum messages "threads" can be deleted on request. Private messages are stored for 90 days on our server in encrypted format. They are not read or monitored by Memory staff and the data is stored securely during its life period. Users can also delete messages in their entirety for both the sending and receiving party at any time. The chat facility is intended for communication between members. Profanity is not allowed and we may automatically suspend the accounts of any user who attempts to use profanity or are discovered by way of our "detection technology". This includes the detection of pornographic image uploads and profane words in messaging. User abuse counts are stored automatically. Memory does not share any of this data with other parties but, in the event of an investigation by law (including but not limited to: an accusation of cyber bullying or extremism), Memory be required to release and unencrypt chat messages. Private messages can only be sent if both the sender and recipient have mutually accepted to follow each other and is therefore considered an opt-in service by default, however you can opt out of chat and social features at any time in the user settings area, including removing your visibility from other users entirely. Children under the age of 13 are not permitted to use private messaging facilities. If an adult is creating an account on behalf of anyone under this age it is expected that the age is set correctly in account settings to ensure this is disabled.
