Telecompaper reports:

Snappet, a Dutch supplier of tablets and software for the classroom, has adapted its privacy policy following pressure from the Dutch data protection regulator CBP. The CBP started an investigation into the company last September, amid concerns it was not handling pupil results in line with personal data protection law. Snappet compared students’ results across its tablet user base, without the written order of schools involved. The data was also insufficiently protected. Snappet offers schools and parents online access to the results with multiple options for analysis. The CBP has now approved its conditions for handling the data and ended its investigation.


This article (in Dutch) indicates that the data security/privacy issue included inadequate protection from processing of the data by unauthorized third parties.
