With two daughters at school, @alcinnz, you might know how I feel these days.
@Shamar Yeah, I feel disgusted everytime I'm driven past my old high school ("college") & I see their proud "Microsoft Showcase School" banners...
@Shamar @alcinnz exactly... My school provided us with a Google account. We have to use Google Meet everyday, with the provided account because, as my professors say, the school uses it to check user participation.
Ita: ogni giorno usiamo google meet. Dicono che dobbiamo usare l'account scolastico google perché le presenze devono essere tracciabili
@alexl I'm not a lawyer, but to me that sounds like a very strong case of GDPR violation. If your university gave the full details of students' detailed contacts with lecturers and each other, including private correspondence, to a private corporation, and in doing so, exported it outside of the EU, then the GDPR fine should be huge.
Maybe @LaQuadrature could give you suggestions of what would be most practical to do?
If you're in the EU, then that's very likely illegal. You should officially inform your professors that they're violating the #GDPR by forcing you to transmit your private data (IP number, name, student ID number, school name) for unnecessary reasons outside of the EU:
Your school could have to pay millions of euros in fines.
"But the pupils/their parents already signed a GDPR declaration on paper" does not make the privacy violation legal.
