Askja is operated by InfoMentor ehf, a software company which has developed educational solutions to support teaching and learning for over twenty years. Askja provides a planning tool inside Microsoft Teams to organise teachers resources. It allows teachers to create, edit and upload long- and short term plans. Furthermore, Askja provides easy navigation to stored resources needed for the day, by providing a ‘link to calendar’ option. Although developed for teachers and those working within education, Askja enriches any document-rich sector that would profit from a file organisation system that encourages collaborative working.
When a user adds the Service, we collect: DisplayName, Email address, TenantId, Office365Id and the IP Address to be able to identify the user and administer the account. This is used only for the purpose of improving the Service.
The data is stored within EU/EES and the service runs in Microsoft‘s Azure Cloud Service (North Europe), which is located in Ireland. No transfer of the data for external parties will take place. The Askja database stores plan names, file names and links to the SharePoint URLs, meaning the content of the files itself can‘t be accessed by Askja Team members.
Askja uses HTML5 LocalStorage to optimise user experience. LocalStorage stores data on the user‘s computer enabling faster load times. Unlike Cookies LocalStorage is not readable except by the user‘s browser and is not sent to the server. Askja does not use LocalStorage to track users. The user can erase all LocalStorage by clearing the browsers cache.
