Privacy and security is a mission-critical requirement for the Kaymbu system. We have many thoughts about this, both from the company perspective and as parents ourselves. We serve hundreds of early education programs across the county, including private preschools, Head Start programs, public school districts and private K12 programs. This is our only business and there is nothing we take more seriously than the security of the data and media we manage on their behalf.
The conventional process for classroom photo and video documentation is spread across multiple digital cameras, personal phones or devices. It involves media being stored across home computers or disks, and communicated with public email platforms like Gmail, Yahoo, etc. We feel strongly that using a dedicated system like Kaymbu is actually much more secure, as it's designed specifically for school environments. It's also centralized and controlled, so in the event of an issue accounts can be locked and managed.
While no digital system is 100% impervious to intrusion, we meet or exceed industry best-practices and couple them with security features specific to school environments, for example:
All data is encrypted and securely hosted over HTTPS
The system is completely 'closed' and separated by school; this is a private system specific to each school
There is no overlap or integration with public websites or any social media services
All system access is controlled by school administrators
All of the data, media, information is entirely the property of schools. Kaymbu can and will not share or publish it outside of your system. If schools discontinue service with Kaymbu, we will delete and/or provide all of the media files for your archives.
