This article is for school leadership and IT support at schools using a ClassLink integration.
Do not enable Classlink’s DataGuard on any fields for your Linewize products without contacting Linewize support first.
ClassLink’s DataGuard is an Identify and Access Management (IAM) tool that limits what data ClassLink shares with other applications, including School Manager. Enabling DataGuard may prevent your Linewize solutions from working as needed. Key School Manager and Classwize functions rely on ClassLink data, including creating reports and correctly applying filtering rules.
We are developing a DataGuard configuration profile that will let you enable DataGuard without affecting your School Manager or Classwize experience. Until then, do not enable DataGuard on any fields without contacting Linewize support or your customer success manager first.
Is my data protected without DataGuard?
Privacy is of critical importance to Linewize. We collect and use data strictly in accordance with best practices and relevant laws. We collect the minimum information necessary and retain this only for as long as is necessary to provide our services, or until you tell us to delete it. Your data is never shared with anyone else.
Linewize has implemented the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and holds any company we deal with to the same high standards. Find out more about our approach to privacy.
What happens if I don’t activate the DataGuard?
Your products will continue to operate as normal without interruption to your service. You do not need to take any further action.
