Schedule 2: Creation and Operation of accounts

The Account is accessible from a browser-based dashboard and may be accessed by any number of Administrators chosen by the School, each Administrator having individual links to the Platform for supervisory, safeguarding and regulatory purposes through each of every Administrator’s personal Account.

The creation of the School’s Account further enables Teachers to set up their own personal Accounts to enable them to deliver online music lessons to relevant Students. The foregoing Accounts may then create links with such Students generally with their parents or guardians wishing to receive music lessons from any Teacher/s (these links may be to the parents or guardians of the Students) and the contact details of the Students/parents/guardians who respond positively are forwarded (with valid legal justification under the Data Protection Legislation as the School’s responsibility) to Practice Pal.

The links are generated in an automatically sent email when the name and email address of the parent or guardian is entered into the dashboard of the Teacher before the parent or guardian is invited to enter into the Student Terms. Once the parent or guardian received the email with the link, they can then choose to create a Student Account. Practice Pal thereafter sets up the Account with respect to each such Student which is activated on the conclusion of Student Terms with each of them. Each Student is then enabled through his own mobile application provided by Practice Pal to connect to the Account of the relevant Teacher and receive music lessons on the Platform at scheduled times.
