BAW EDU’s politik vedr. GDPR og databehandling

BAW EDU’s system er designet som ’Privacy by Design’, dvs. at vi gemmer mindst mulige data.

Det ligger os meget på sinde, at være ansvarlige, dataminimere og følge gældende lovgivning på området.

En gang årligt gennemgår vi vores system, og sikrer at, der ikke indsamles nogen form for person-data og at sikkerheden er i top.

 

I praksis foregår det således
Lærere: Når en lærer har fået adgang via. sit Unilogin, kan læreren logge ind. Efter vellykket login hos STIL, videresendes login fra STIL (https://www.stil.dk/) til BAW. Der oprettes automatisk en brugerkonto hos BAW og lærerens Unilogin-navn gemmes envejs-krypteret. Der hentes ingen yderligere data hos STIL og der gemmes ingen yderligere data hos BAW om læreren. Dette betyder, at lærere er anonyme i BAW’s system og at vi ikke kan fremsøge data på læreren (eller eleverne). Der gemmes altså ingen person-data om læreren i BAW’s system.

Hvis det ønskes, kan en kunde bede om at få slettet en bruger i BAW’s system. Dette kræver, at vi får oplyst lærerens Unilogin-navn. Så slettes kontoen og de dertil hørende BAW-kort.

Elever: Elever logger ikke ind med Unilogin. Elever logger ind med et lærer-id, en tilfældigt genereret PIN-kode og et elevnummer, som de får udleveret af læreren. Der gemmes ingen person-data om eleven i BAW’s system.

Læreren og eleverne kan vælge at skrive et navn ind per spil-session, et alias, fx ‘Peter’ eller ‘Super Maria’. Disse navne er temporære og gemmes ikke.

 

Hvor behandles og gemmes data?

BAW-Servere og database: Amazon EC2 / Dublin Ireland
BAW-kort og opdateringsfiler: Amazon S3 / Dublin Ireland
BAW-Database: Amazon RDS / Dublin Ireland

Hos Amazon anvendes ‘buckets’. De buckets der anvendes til at hente generelle opdateringer til BAW EDU spillet, er ’public’, mens buckets der anvendes til kort-data, er ’private’.

BAW-kortene indeholder ikke PII (Personally identifiable information).

En lærers unilogin-navn gemmes på Amazon RDS.
