If you're in the EU, then that's very likely illegal. You should officially inform your professors that they're violating the #GDPR by forcing you to transmit your private data (IP number, name, student ID number, school name) for unnecessary reasons outside of the EU:

Your school could have to pay millions of euros in fines.

"But the pupils/their parents already signed a GDPR declaration on paper" does not make the privacy violation legal.

Well well - this looks most sensible: h/t @alcinnz - now the question is: when will NZ follow suit? Because it's obviously the right thing to do.

Concerned about #GDPR #DSGVO #HIPAA and other #dataprotection regulations? #selfhosting is the easiest and most reliable way to be compliant. Learn about #SecureFileExchange #EFSS and how it can help you get your data back under control!

Yabbut, people in that study dropped out and died. The tricky wording is *AFTER 6 days*. Bunch of them didn't make it 6 days.
Saw link to the study on hacker news. After reading, discarded.

While humans carry out social distancing, a group of 14 elephants broke into a village in Yunan province, looking for corn and other food. They ended up drinking 30kg of corn wine and got so drunk that they fell asleep in a nearby tea garden.
