Privacy and Security

One of the biggest concerns when it comes to cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS) is privacy and security of sensitive data. In school registration management, we deal with documents such as birth certificates, proof of residency, and payment information — data that needs to remain accessible only to those with permission. Maintaining the privacy of student information is critical for everyone: the school, the parents, and the students themselves. That’s why we implement a comprehensive and strict privacy policy and invest heavily in a secure infrastructure; we understand the value of your data.

We commit to safeguard student privacy regarding the collection, maintenance, and use of student personal information. As a pledge member of The Future of Privacy Forum (FPF) and The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) Student Privacy Pledge, we hold ourselves accountable to:

• Not sell student information
• Not behaviorally target advertising
• Use data for authorized education purposes only
• Not change privacy policies without notice and choice
• Enforce strict limits on data retention
• Support parental access to, and correction of errors in, their children’s information
• Provide comprehensive security standards
• Be transparent about collection and use of data

“Data privacy is one of the most important issues affecting the education technology industry. Families and students need to be sure that the information they believe they are disclosing for educational purposes will not be misused by service providers. We are happy to be a leader in this effort and we challenge other K-12 service providers to join us,” says Louis J. Trotter, Jr., InfoSnap’s President and CEO.

Additionally, maintaining a sophisticated and secure infrastructure is a key tenet of InfoSnap. Your data is protected in two ways: electronically and physically. Digitally, we implement third-party security audits to ensure our infrastructure meets the highest SaaS security standards; your data is always protected by cryptographic algorithms for the encryption of data both when in motion or when at rest. Our customized dashboards are protected so that only authorized users have access to sensitive information. And in the real world, we maintain offsite hosting that’s backed by a sophisticated disaster recovery system. That way, in case of a natural disaster, we can continue to provide your solutions.

Storing your data with InfoSnap is actually safer than relying on paper documents, whereas physical files are subject to misplacement or environmental damage, our digital files will always be quick and easy to access. Our SaaS coupled with our advanced hosting infrastructure ensures usability, accuracy, and security.

Therefore, the combination of a comprehensive and strict privacy policy, coupled with a sophisticated and secure infrastructure, ensures that your data is protected.
