*E-DBRC© Confidentiality & Security

Confidentiality and security are among the highest priorities of e-DBRC©. The purpose of this document is to summarize the policies and practices currently in place for providing a confidential and secure environment for gathering, storing and using e-DBRC© data. For purposes of the User Agreement, users refer to the district, school or teacher level users.

e-DBRC© data are the legal property of the licensing user. Data entered into e-DBRC© are the sole property of the user entering into a licensing agreement. e-DBRC© operators are not legally able to share the data from a user with anyone (including a district representative) without the express written approval of the licensing user.

Personalized Password. Security of e-DBRC© data are enhanced through the personal selection of password. The password is available to the user, the e-DBRC© Facilitator, and the e-DBRC© system operator. Access to the information for any specific user account requires use of the individual password. The greatest security risk within e-DBRC© lies in the possibility that an unauthorized individual will gain access to a user password. All user levels using e-DBRC© are encouraged to safeguard their own passwords with care.

Encrypted data transfer. Information sent to or from e-DBRC© is encrypted en route to minimize the remote chance that the data could be re-routed and interpreted.

Unique server space. Each user sending data to e-DBRC© has a protected and unique space on the e-DBRC© servers. No individual has access to the information from another user account without use of the individualized password.

Professional quality firewall that is continuously monitored and upgraded. The e-DBRC© database in protected by a firewall of high professional quality. The effectiveness of this firewall in preventing unauthorized access to e-DBRC© accounts is monitored continuously, and upgraded regularly.

Use of e-DBRC© data. Most users using e-DBRC© have agreed to have their data added to a state research database funded by the U.S. Department of Education. The purpose of this database is to document large demographic patterns, and to allow users to compare their ODR results with similar groups of schools (elementary, urban, etc). You must agree specifically to include your data in the Research Database the following considerations are important.

All user names are deleted before data are transferred to the research database.

The research projects summarizing the information in e-DBRC© comply with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), (34 CFR 99.31(6)).

The research projects summarizing the information in e-DBRC© have been reviewed and approved by Texas A&M University Internal Review Board for Protection of Human Subjects (45 CFR 46).

All data reported in research reports and presentations are done in aggregate format that prevents the identification of individual users.

We welcome questions and comments related to confidentiality and security of information entered into e-DBRC©. If you have additional questions, or suggestions please contact our Support Team (d2k@tamu.edu).
