Privacy is important to Blackboard and the teachers, learners and educational institutions that we serve. Blackboard is committed to following both legal obligations and best practices with regard to the collection, protection, use and storage of private information. We also support the privacy policies of your educational institution.
Privacy: Your institution, Blackboard, and you
Blackboard provides certain products run by educational institutions at non-Blackboard sites. For such products, Blackboard recommends that you consult with your educational institution’s privacy policies. Blackboard provides a number of configuration options to allow such institutions to implement their privacy guidelines within our products.

Support for SSL encryption
Any institution may choose to run its Blackboard Learn solution under SSL. SSL is a browser technology that encrypts the data transmitted between your computer and the Blackboard server. SSL websites have an address that begins with https:// instead of http:// (note the additional “s”). Blackboard strongly encourages all schools to run under SSL to ensure data privacy of transmitted data and to secure the transmission of login and password information.
The Blackboard Social functionality includes the ability of its users to determine appropriate privacy settings for users’ data, subject to limitations imposed by the users’ applicable institutions. All users of the social media functionality are solely responsible for monitoring and updating their privacy settings on a regular basis, in order to help protect the privacy of the users’ data in accordance with the users’ preferences.
