Our 3 Guiding Privacy Principles
Published January 1, 2021
At Edkairos, we're committed to protecting the information we receive by ensuring it's used only to support students, institutions, and education. Privacy is paramount in education, and therefore, privacy standards are embedded in our corporate DNA as we strive to support educators and students worldwide.
In addition to the tangible work that we do to uphold our promises, Edkairos will embrace three key principles: accountability, security, and confidentiality.
1. Accountability: As a requirement and best practice, we strive to demonstrate our commitment to privacy in concrete and tangible ways. We work diligently to ensure that our documentation, policies, and procedures support student and institutional privacy from the ground up.
2. Security: We will maintain a clear focus on the technical and organizational measures we use to protect student and institutional data. At Edkairos, we have an open security program which is based on both preventative and detective measures, as well as processes, controls, and tools helping to mitigate risks that might impact data, people, systems, operations, products, and our mission as a company.
3. Confidentiality: We provide clearly established rules that limit access to student and institutional data entrusted to Edkairos. We strive to protect that data from unauthorized access or unlawful processing.
