Educational institutions in particular have to comply with numerous legal frameworks when dealing with personal data and protecting students. As a provider of schul.cloud®, we are aware of the great responsibility that we have towards you and your students in the context of data protection. In order to provide even more protection for these personal data, a new Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was introduced throughout Europe this year.

The new General Data Protection Regulation strengthens the rights of users of messengers and their personal data and punishes violations of providers with high fines. Messenger like WhatsApp, which require access to the private address book, may only be used in a purely private context. As soon as school data is stored there, the use according to GDPR is not compliant.

Data protection and schul.cloud®

For the optimal security of your data schul.cloud® offers a real end-to-end encryption. All data is encrypted and transmitted encrypted on the way to and from the server. The schul.cloud® is provided in a high security data center in Germany. This takes all necessary technical and organizational measures for data security.

In the course of the GDPR we would like to give you as transparent as possible information on the protection of the schul.cloud and make the introduction of schul.cloud at your school as easy as possible. Below you will find important data protection documents for download:
