Durham Catholic District School Board Mobile App (iOS and Android) Privacy Statement
Last Updated: February 8, 2017
Durham Catholic District School Board ("DCDSB"), the owner of the DCDSB Mobile App, believes in the personal right to privacy, and is respectful of your rights in this regard. The App will only collect information vital to the functionality of the application and some basic analytics information to allow us to continue improving the program.
- Once you sign in to a school and select "My Classes" (ClassAlert) or School & Bus Alerts (NewsAlert), your unique device ID is sent to the hosted eSolutionsGroup Limited (eSolutions) servers so that update notifications and school notifications can be delivered to you. You can disable these notifications at any time using the settings page accessible via the "Gear" icon in the top right hand corner of the DCDSB App Dashboard.
- If you sign up for any optional notifications, your location as a latitude and longitude, and the details of the notification you would like to receive are collected and stored so that we can send you the appropriate notification. You can disable these notifications at any time using the settings page accessible via the "Gear" icon in the top right hand corner of the DCDSB App Dashboard.
- Page visits within the DCDSB App are recorded solely for analytics purposes but cannot be tied back to an individual as only a unique "device id" is transmitted to the hosted eSolutions servers. The type of device being used such as the user agent and device type (iOS, Android) is also stored. These analytics are viewable by DCDSB as well as eSolutions.
- When a "Report Bullying" is submitted within the DCDSB App, the hosted eSolutions servers relay the information to DCDSB and may keep the report information in the eSolutions database so that the DCDSB can review it from their secure portal.
All data noted above that is transmitted to the hosted eSolutions servers is transmitted over the HTTPS secure protocol.
Under no circumstances will DCDSB and eSolutions provide collected information to any third party with the exception of the analytics noted above unless compelled by a court order or applicable law.
