Dugga AB (”Dugga”, ”we”, ”our”, “us”) is a software company which has developed a web based application for knowledge assessment and to conduct exams, tests and assignments in classroom and remotely called the Dugga Learning Assessment (the “Service”). We at Dugga know that our users (“you”, “your”) care about how personal information (“Personal Data”) is used and shared, and we take your privacy seriously. Therefore, we will be transparent with you about the type of Personal Data we collect and how we use that Personal Data. Dugga has taken appropriate measures to ensure that we follow EU/GDPR data protection laws and regulations. We also continuously develop our work with data privacy to ensure that we always are in line with any legal requirements concerning the processing of Personal Data.
- Responsibility for processing of Personal Data
A party that processes Personal Data is either a controller of Personal Data or a processor of Personal Data. The controller is the party that determines the purposes and means of the processing of Personal Data while the processor is the party that processes Personal Data on behalf of a controller. The person whose Personal Data is being processed is referred to as a data subject.
It is the controller that has the overall responsibility for ensuring that the processing of Personal Data is carried out in accordance with applicable data protection legislation, while the actual handling of the Personal Data may be performed by processors of Personal Data on behalf of the controller.
- Processing for which Dugga is a processor
When a School enters into an agreement to use the Service the School is acting as a controller for the processing of Personal Data described in this section.
It is the controller (the School) that establishes the purposes of the processing of Personal Data in the Service, Dugga only processes the Personal Data for the purposes stated by the School.
How we obtain access to your Personal Data
We receive and store any Personal Data you or your School actively provide to us, and that is provided to us when your use one of the login services (for example through your use of login with a username and password at app.dugga.se, through Microsoft or Google, or through Single Sign On (SSO) starting from the portal that you use). The Personal Data received is described further below and will depend on your role. In the Service you can have different roles as Teacher, Student, Administrator, Study Administrator or Exam guard.
Which Personal Data we process
We process the data provided through the Service which can include your full name, email address, class and School. In some cases, you or the School can choose to share your personal number/social security number and a photography but that is not necessary in order to use the Service.
For students: we may process information related to answering questions in for instance a test, exam or assignment (including completed assessment and given grades). In some cases, you as a student may also opt to share id, audio, screenshots, keyboard input and video during an exam event to secure the integrity of an exam event and the environment. This tool is mainly used for remote examinations and for higher levels of education.
For teachers: we process the name of the teacher that has carried out the assessment of a student, course and calendar information, course participants to synchronize students to our database so that teachers can see their students in the Service and are able to schedule exams with specific students/groups. We need access to your assignment information so that your students can create and update their course work in Google Classroom. When students submit their exams/assignment, it will be uploaded to Google Classroom in which they can see their results once it is graded.
In order to maintain your account we also process your user account information, logins, events (create, change, read, delete), change of roles/permissions, activation of users and data on last login. The data processed depends on which login provider your School has chosen for your user account:
- For Microsoft integrations
When a user uses the Service in Microsoft O365 or Teams we also collect; Office 365 user Id, Office 365 tenant details in order to be able to identify the user, for error reporting and to improve the Service.
Students: we use your profile information, email information and your open ID for single sign on into our application. If you are a G-Suite user, you will be able to login with your google account to our application.
For complete information regarding which data is processed via the teaching platform used by your School, please contact your School or our support department.
In order for it to be permissible to process Personal Data, there must always be support in the GDPR, referred to as the legal basis. It is the controller (the School) which establishes the legal basis for the processing which we perform on its behalf and which shall provide you with the information on the legal basis used.
How long we keep Personal Data
It is the controller (the School) which decides the how long we keep the Personal Data (the retention period) and which shall provide you with the information of the retention period. For most Schools, your Personal Data will be kept for as long as your account is active and the Service is provided, or for as long as your School needs the examination result saved on the Service.
