Tribe is built into the Open P-TECH platform so that users can access the Tribe community through Open P-TECH single sign-on for authentication. In GDPR terms, Tribe is the data processor, and IBM is the data controller. Tribe is a community forum functionality that enables monitored conversations about specific technical and career topics of interest to our users.
The data fields passed to Tribe include first name, last name, email address, and unique id. The data shown to other users of the Open P-TECH Tribe instance only includes first and last name (students are unable to add personal photos, location data, or show their email addresses).
Students using Tribe will be searchable by their name and whether or not they have made or responded to a post. Posts and responses made by students are viewable by all other Open P-TECH participants if the post is in a public group, or viewable by a smaller, select group if made in a private group. All posts are automatically moderated by our Digital Success team on a daily basis.
