Firewalls, passwords, and encryption technology protect the information about our customers that we collect and securely store.
Star Typers may release customer information when we believe, in good faith, that such release is reasonably necessary to (i) comply with law, (ii) enforce or apply the terms of any of our member agreements or (iii) protect the rights, property or safety of Star Typers our customers or others.

How does Star Typers Protect Student Data:
Student information collected is limited to what is required for the teachers to identify the students in their class. This includes: username, password, name and grade. Only this information is stored securely online for students. Furthermore, Star Typers understands the importance of protecting student data and information. Personal student information is NOT required to be able to use the Star Typers program. In light of this, the only parties that have access to student information will be: District Administrators, Teachers and Star Typers support and their respective resellers and this is strictly limited to customer or technical support purposes only.
In the event of an unauthorized disclosure of a student’s records, Star Typers will report to the master account holder of the affected school or district in an app communication and email as to the depth and breadth of the data breach and provide messaging that can be shared with the parents of legal guardians of the students.
In addition, following a one year period of time after a school or districts account expires, student identifying records will be deleted from our database archives and no longer available for use by Star Typers. For reporting purposes, an overview report of the school or districts progress (excluding student identifying data) will be retained for analytical purposes. Prior to this one year period and during the duration of the Star Typers subscription, students, parents, teachers, and administrators can print a report of an overview of the work that the student accomplished while on the program.
Please note: student passwords are visible to teachers and administrators of the program. Best practice is NOT to have students use common passwords or passwords they use elsewhere.
Typing Agent shall take actions to ensure the security and confidentiality of all students, including but not limited to designating and training responsible individuals on ensuring the security and confidentiality of student records, by securely storing student data behind a 256 Bit secure SSL certificate. Schools and districts have control over how they would prefer to identify their students within the Star Typers program. In addition, only Star Typers support staff, teachers or school administrators have access to student records. The minimal student identification information that is required to use Star Typers, is a username. Personal student contact information is NOT required to be able to use the Star Typers program. Star Typers does allow schools or districts to enable third party single sign on applications. Schools and Districts who elect to do this are responsible for managing their student privacy relationship with those third party entities.
Parents, legal guardians, or eligible may review personally identifiable information in the student’s records and correct erroneous information by contacting their teacher or school administrators directly.
