Privacy Protection and Security
Creaza, October 2020
The purpose of privacy protection is to protect your private life, personal integrity and ensure the quality of personal data is adequate
The processing of personal data in Norway is primarily regulated by the Personal Data Act, but a range of other laws such as the Electronic Communications Act, the Marketing Control Act, and the Accounting Act also provide guidelines for how information that can be connected to a person should be processed.
With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) set to take effect, on May 25th 2018, we want to provide a statement on our work to comply with new regulations and ensure that our customers who use Creaza can continue to do so with confidence.
At Creaza, we have done extensive work to protect the privacy and security of our customers (and of our staff and learners):
- We have Data Processing Agreements (DPAs) with customers that regulate how personal data is defined and how we process this data.
- DPAs also regulate sharing of personal data. We use personal data solely for the purpose of providing the agreed service for the customer and its users. No personal data is disclosed to third parties. Creaza uses the following sub-processors:
Type of processing
Inspera AS (Norway)
Development, maintenance, and service
Expert Software Application srl. (Romania)
Development, software, and service
AWS Amazon (Ireland)
Infrastructure, internet access, hosting, and AWS services
Wevideo Inc (USA)
Video-rendering service. No personal data is being stored.
TrackJS LLC (USA)
Information about municipality, county, school, role, name, and email addresses is necessary for the service to work as expected. This information is only used to distinguish users from each other, and for adjustments and workflow.
Listed below is the personal information Creaza uses:
- Name (first and last name)
- Role (teacher/student)
- Email address
THINGS YOU CREATE OR PROVIDE TO US
When you use your Creaza Account, you provide us with personal information. By far, most users log into Creaza using a single sign-on, like Skolfederation, SLI, Skolon, Google, Microsoft, Feide, UNI-login or similar. Upon first login, we receive your name, email, role, school, and municipality. With this information we create your account, were your content is stored. Upon the next login, we receive your unique id to give you access to your content.
Even if you aren’t signed into a Creaza Account, you provide us with information — like an email address to receive updates about our Services. When you upload content such as videos, photos, and audio for use within the services, we collect that content within your account so that you may access it. We also collect comments you make on published works, be they your own or those that others have shared with you.
