credentialing standards

Open Standards

Built on W3C and IMS standards, our credentials are designed from the ground up for portability and interoperability.

Comprehensive Compliance

CPRA/CPPA

Although the CPPA will be superseded by the CPRA in 2023, we're already prepared with measures such as protection of "Sensitive Personal Information", a ban on both selling and sharing recipient data for the purpose of advertising, and avoidance of "Profiling".
For further information on the CPRA, we recommend visiting the website of the Californians for Consumer Privacy, which has summaries, changes from the CPPA, and even annotated versions of the CPRA.

GDPR

In addition to handling the CPRA/CPPA, we also stay on top of the GDPR. On our website, we follow best practices on cookie consent and have eliminated all non-essential cookies. Meanwhile, aside from those needed for authentication, our SaaS application has zero mandatory cookies in it.  Following the GDPR isn't too challenging for the team at Digit.ink since we're just not interested in gathering information through intrusive methods.

Data Security

The Schrems II decision invalidated the EU-US Privacy Shield framework, forced drafting of new Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs), and generally threw established data transfer arrangements into disarray. Fortunately, Digit.ink has stayed on top of the regulatory situation and we've incorporated the latest SCCs into the agreements we sign with data controllers based in the EU.
