FERPA

Many of our users are schools, colleges, and universities (hereinafter “Schools”) that are subject to privacy requirements of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Involver is committed to assuring these organizations remain in compliance with FERPA by agreeing to not disclose any information posted on our site by Schools without the consent of the student. We limit the amount of information we receive from Schools to First Name, Last Name, and email address. Additionally, we record the affiliation with that School in Involver such that the user is a “member” of that volunteer community. None of this information can be seen by any other user outside of that School’s listed members, until the student logs-on the site and registers. At such time, the student’s basic information as noted above, will be available to all other Involver users. The student at any time can contact their School’s administrator and ask to have their privacy set to “Hidden” which will prevent that information from showing to all users on Involver. For more information about how Involver enables Schools to comply with the privacy restrictions of FERPA, please see our answers to frequently asked questions(FAQs)

SECURITY

  1. Personal information you provide will be secured in accordance with industry standards and technology. Since the Internet is not a 100% secure environment, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Involver. There is no guarantee that information may not be accessed, copied, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.
  2. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information, and for controlling access to your email communications at all times.
