How do we collect your data?

You directly provide Homebase with the data we collect, except in cases described below.

Data is collected through online forms during registration and is stored securely within AWS servers. Test-taker personal information, including name, photo, photo of government issued ID, are necessary to confirm user identity.

The user can elect to share score information with university administrators, if they do, personal information, including name and photo appear on the dashboard along with their test score. Otherwise data is not shared.

Homebase may receive your data indirectly from 3rd party sources

Homebase data is typically captured by the applicant themselves and/or the legal guardian of potential students. If the user registers for a Homebase account directly from their institution’s student information system (such as sunapsis or Terra Dotta), then only data required to create the user account will be received.

How will we use your data?

Users send scores to education institutions. Homebase needs to collect test taker personal information in order to ensure the accuracy of test taker identity. Without this verification, identities cannot be guaranteed as authentic.

How do we protect and store your data?

We have implemented appropriate technical and organizational security measures designed to protect your User Information against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure, unauthorized access, and other unlawful or unauthorized forms of Processing, in accordance with applicable law. In certain instances, we may use Secure Sockets Layer encryption and/or transfer certain User Information in a non-human readable format to provide protection. However, we cannot guarantee there will not be a breach, and we are not responsible for any breach of security or for the actions of any third parties.

Because the internet is an open system, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will implement reasonable measures to protect your information, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to us using the internet. Any such transmission is at your own risk and you are responsible for ensuring that any Personal Information that you send to us are sent securely.

We take every reasonable step to ensure that your User Information that we process is accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date, and any of your User Information that we Process that you inform us is inaccurate (having regard to the purposes for which they are Processed) is erased or rectified. We take every reasonable step to ensure that your User Information that we Process is limited to the User Information reasonably necessary in connection with the purposes set out in this Policy or as required to provide you services or access to the Services.

We take every reasonable step to ensure that your user Information is only processed for the minimum period necessary for the purposes set out in this Policy. The criteria for determining the duration for which we will keep your User Information are as follows: we will retain copies of your User Information in a form that permits identification only for as long as is necessary in connection with the purposes set out in this policy, unless applicable law requires a longer retention period. Unless there is a specific legal requirement for us to keep the information, we plan to retain it for no longer than is necessary to fulfill a legitimate business need.

Homebase has skilled and experienced personnel with hands on knowledge of Federal regulations and guidelines (including National Institute of Standards and Technology [NIST] publications – Guide for the Security Certification and Accreditation of Federal Information Systems standards, Government

Information Security Reform Act [GISRA], Office of Management and Budget [OMB] A-130, Computer Security Act, Privacy Act, and Federal Information System Controls Audit Manual [FISCAM]). We perform Security Audits of our environment at regular intervals to ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations and industry standards.

Homebase ensures the confidentiality of its information/data by complying with the applicable laws and regulations and utilizing industry best-practices for security and privacy of information. Availability of our client’s information/data, in an event of a disaster, is ensured by utilizing our robust database clustering technologies combined with our state-of-the-art business continuity and disaster recovery program. In addition, we ensure integrity of our client information/data in transit and in rest by leveraging industry best-practices and encryption technologies. Homebase uses managed intrusion prevention and intrusion detection services to detect and prevent any unauthorized activities in our hosted environment.

In addition, we leverage vulnerability scanning to assess our environment at regular intervals to ensure our servers are secure. Our applications do not maintain any sensitive data in browsers cache, hidden fields or any other risk prone locations. We disallow indexing of public files by search engines.

Homebase will keep your data for a period of 3 years from your most recent test attempt. Once this time period has expired, we will delete your data by performing a secure purge of the data in any and all databases or systems. Since no physical copies are stored, this logical disposal is significantly facilitated. Sensitive information, including photos of government-issued IDs, will be deleted at the completion of the test scoring at a maximum of 5 days.


Homebase will not share your data for any marketing purposes outside of Homebase. If you have agreed to receive marketing, you may always opt out at a later date.

You have the right at any time to stop Homebase from contacting you for marketing purposes or giving your data to other members of the Homebase organization.
