At itslearning we believe that technology can vastly improve education. Part of this mission also means that we are committed custodians to data protection.
Our pledge is to all stakeholders. Whether you are an administrator, teacher, school staff, student or parent, you can rest assured that itslearning takes data protection seriously. We have enacted several measures both internally and externally to ensure that our platform is a secure system that you can trust. Unlike some other software providers we do not own any personal data. As our customer, you will always have full control of your data.
Data processed by itslearning is done in highly secure data centers in Europe and the US. (Important: All data from our customers in the EU/EEA is ONLY processed within the EU/EEA. You can find more information on our section ‘Commitment to privacy – GDPR compliant’ on this page.)
Our solution is robust and reliant with appropriate fail safe measures. We also have a Disaster Recovery Plan to prevent customer data loss, to recover data in the unlikely event of a disaster.
Regular testing by our internal security team and a strong focus on security across the development teams ensure that our platform security is not compromised. In addition to a strong security focused mindset among our engineers, itslearning is also security audited by third-party auditors several times a year.
Commitment to privacy – GDPR compliant
itslearning has always followed the principles of European data privacy and was one of the first learning platform providers to fully adhere to GDPR requirements. This General Data Protection Regulation is designed to significantly enhance the protection of personal data of EU/EEA citizens. Our commitment goes one step further in that we only process European customer data within the EU/EEA. This data batch is never transferred outside the EU/EEA region.
We do not own or control user data. We do not share user data with any third parties unless specifically instructed by our customers. The relationship we have with our customers is governed by GDPR compliant agreements.
