What kind of information is collected from students? So far, it appears like school email address, gender, and age range are all connected with survey responses. Is student information that is collected housed on your server or on ours? Where is data kept? How do you ensure privacy and security? What if there is a breach?
Student information is collected with the survey instrument at https://demo.elearnready.com/s/. The system also logs user’s browser type, operation system, IP, and completion date/time. The information is stored on our own server in the format of mySQL database. Due to copyright management, eLearnReady may only be hosted on our server. Several methods are employed to ensure privacy and security. First, SSL is employed to secure the connection between our server and the end-user’s browser. Second, several means are employed to prevent potential attacks at server level and site level (See our security plan for detail). Third, the database is fully backed up on a daily basis to a remote server including the use of an encryption key. If there should be any data lost, the system can be restored within 24 hours.
