At EdTechTeam, we are committed to safeguarding and preserving the privacy of our product users. This Privacy Policy explains what happens to any personal data that you provide to us or that we collect from you while you use our software.

Chrome Extensions and Google Drive Add-On

Whisper

Whisper utilizes token-based authentication in order to sync directly to Google Classroom. All conversational data are collected and stored in Google Cloud storage, which meets the EU-US Privacy Shield framework adopted by the European Commission. This complies with data protection requirements and GDPR legislation when transferring data outside of the EU. Conversation data are only accessible by the two parties in the conversation with no access to conversation logs by EdTechTeam employees. Further, no user-identifiable information is available or accessible to EdTechTeam employees.

Data are controllable by the Google Classroom teacher. The Chrome extension has a button that allows them to clear the message history from Google Cloud servers. In addition, each message that is sent through Whisper is also sent by email to both teacher and students. Email is sent on teacher’s behalf and stored and archived in accordance with school or district email archival policies.
