Who we are
Our website address is: https://peepity.com. We are a small company founded by a Respiratory Therapist with the intention of helping educational facilities manage complex regulatory requirements put forth by agencies such as CoARC and ABHES.
PEEPity provides software that schools use to manage, track, and maintain records required by their regulatory authorities. Therefore, schools have primary access to collected data and are responsible for being aware of and following United States (U.S.) and local state laws regarding the privacy of collected data.
Additionally, PEEPity offers hosting services to respiratory therapy state societies. In such cases, the state societies are responsible for managing the privacy and integrity of data they collect and store on their individual sites. PEEPity acts in a web design and hosting capacity for state societies that use the service.

This site is scanned for potential malware and vulnerabilities by an third party security site scanner. We do not send personal information to the scanner; however, the scanner could find personal information posted publicly (such as in comments) during the scan.
Student regulatory data tracked through PEEPity software can be shared with third parties, like CoARC and ABHES, for compliance purposes. All schools agree to only share data according to current U.S. and state privacy laws. Schools are responsible for maintaining the privacy of collected data they manage on individual school sites.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username).
Security logs are retained for 60 days.
Student tracked data is retained for the CoARC mandatory regulatory period of 10 years.
