  • At Audiri, we take the protection of your data and that of your school community very seriously.

  • Information in a form submission could contain sensitive or personal information, for this reason, by default, the contents of the form submission are not included in the notification emails as this removes our ability to prevent unauthorised access to this information.

  • This is the recommended approach as per the Australian Privacy Principle Guidelines.
