Our team works hard behind the scenes to keep your data safe, secure, and private. This is our responsibility to you, your students, your alumni, and your broader community, and we take it seriously.
We require secure connections for all users (HTTPS TLS 1.2) and encrypt all data at rest. We follow application security best practices. PeopleGrove hosts all data with the leading cloud providers (Amazon and Google), all of which have secure SSAE 16 audited data centers. Unless by request, we exclusively host data in the United States. We also work with third-party security services and network scanning tools to reduce vulnerabilities and security threats to your data.
On the PeopleGrove platform, you control how your data is shared and accessed with others via your settings. And when you enter sensitive information, we encrypt the transmission of that data using industry-standard encryption. At PeopleGrove, we believe that the best way to achieve security is to build all systems and processes with security in mind and to leverage all the modern tools and technology at our fingertips.
We know trust is earned, not just given. And we believe it starts with being transparent about our system’s status and performance. The PeopleGrove status page (status.peoplegrove.com) shares our app and API availability at all times.
