Our Commitment To Children’s Privacy

The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) was created to protect children under the age of thirteen from unsuspecting practices related to collecting, using, or disclosing any information about them. Our services are neither intended nor directed for use by children under the age of thirteen. Satarii does not knowingly accept, collect, maintain or use any information from any child under the age of thirteen, and if a child whom Satarii knows or suspects to be under the age of thirteen sends personal information to us online, we will only use that information to respond directly to that child, notify the parents, or seek parental consent.

Distribution of Information

Except as stated in our Privacy Policy, we will not disclose personally identifiable information about our users to any third party without your prior consent.

We share personally identifiable information with third parties only to the extent necessary to render services you have requested, for example to trusted business partners who process information on our behalf. We require that these parties agree to process such information based on our instructions and in compliance with our Privacy Policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures.

We may share non-personal, aggregate information regarding customer demographics, traffic patterns, sales, and site usage with our partners, advertisers or sponsors. We may offer some services on or in collaboration with other Internet web sites. Personally identifiable information that you provide to those third-party sites may be sent to us so that we can deliver the requested service. We process such information under our Privacy Policy.

We may also provide you with access to third party applications, such as gadgets or extensions, through our website. Any information collected when you enable a third party application on our site is processed under our Privacy Policy, but any information collected by a third party application provider is governed by their privacy policies.

We may also share your personally identifiable information with third parties if we have a good faith belief that access to or use of this information, or the preservation or disclosure of this information is reasonably necessary to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request; to enforce our Terms of Service, including for investigation of possible violations; detect, prevent, or otherwise remedy fraud, security threats or breaches, or other technical issues; and to prevent harm to the personal or property rights of Satarii, or other third parties, as permitted by applicable laws.

Satarii Security

Your personally identifiable information is kept secure. Only authorized employees, agents and contractors (who have agreed to keep information secure and confidential) have access to this information. Specifically we take the extensive steps outlined below to ensure security.

Satarii Security Overview

Swivl Cloud runs on Amazon EC2 Compute Cloud for the core application. Swivl Cloud uses Amazon S3 for storing your video. Amazon states that they have highly secure data centers which utilize state-of-the art electronic surveillance and multi-factor access control systems, that its data centers are staffed 24×7 by trained security guards, and access is authorized strictly on a least privileged basis. You can learn about Amazon’s security at the AWS Security Center. AWS has achieved ISO 27001 certification and has been validated as a Level 1 service provider under the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS). AWS undergoes annual SOC 1 audits and have been successfully evaluated at the Moderate level for Federal government systems as well as DIACAP Level 2 for DoD systems. Access to Swivl Cloud data portal management is limited to several key employees and is protected by a two-factor authentication mechanism for access, requiring authorized team members to first log in using their email address and password, then enter a six-digit access code that refreshes every 30 seconds from a linked mobile device. All private data exchanged with Swivl Cloud is always transmitted over SSL. For API connectivity between Swivl Capture app and Swivl Cloud, we use OAuth authentication occurring over SSL protocol.

User Video Access 

Other Cloud users can’t see your projects unless you deliberately share public links to projects or share projects via email or group. If a video is shared with a specific user via email, if someone else gets this email, they will be unable to access the video unless they have login credentials of that user. Public projects are only viewable by people who have a link to the project(s). Videos that are deleted by the user are retained for 30 days for recovery purposes due to accidental deletion (per user request) and then removed permanently from the Swivl Cloud storage servers. Swivl Cloud user listings are not available or visible to individual users and thus all student data is hidden

Only Swivl Cloud Institutional Account administrators have additional visibility to their member data, 
but it is specifically configured by each administrator and has to be explicitly accepted by each Institutional Account member.

Company Policies 

Satarii employees are prohibited from viewing the content of files you store in your account. Employees may access file metadata (e.g., file names and locations) when they have a legitimate reason, like providing technical support. Like most online services, we have a small number of employees who must be able to access user data for the reasons stated in our privacy policy (e.g., when legally required to do so).

A very select number of employees (senior engineering leadership) have the ability to access video data only when legally required or requested by customer for technical support.
