We take security and privacy very seriously at edX. Here's a quick overview of how your verification photos are managed:
- All photos are encrypted and sent to our secure authorization service for review. We use the highest levels of security and ensure that the images are appropriately stored for processing.
- Our authentication partner is private. The pictures are not stored in their system, but the user’s name and pass/fail and reason are stored.
- This data is retained via Hostway and in the Amazon cloud.
