By default, only the video recorder has access to their recording. Only users who the recorder specifically selects to share with have access to the recording. This access is controlled by a recorder who can remove the share at any time.
Administrators do not have access to recordings unless a user shares with them, however, administrators are able to view a thumbnail view of any recording to enable them to ensure the appropriateness of any uploaded recordings. These previews have no audio and only show one frame every few minutes, to ensure that the feature can not be used for other purposes.
We developed this tool as we believe it provides the right balance for administrators to achieve GDPR compliance and provide safeguarding needs as required in their role as administrators, whilst maintaining the privacy of the users' recordings.

By default, users will only be able to share with other users in their organisation. This is to ensure data security and safeguarding requirements are met.
The exception to this is if a user is taking part in a Programme in which case as part of that programme sharing to a trainer or mentor in a different organisation may have been pre-authorised. Further information on Programmes can be found here.
If an organisation wishes to enable additional sharing to facilitate collaboration with other users outside of their organisation, an organisation's ‘network’ is able to be expanded to sharing either via the use of community groups or trust/collaboration networks, which both require administrator approval.
By default, data is stored within the IRIS Connect platform and not able to be downloaded.
Downloading is a restricted feature to ensure data security is maintained, as any data downloaded from the platform is at a much greater risk of being compromised. Whilst downloading isn’t by default permitted, we appreciate there are occasions when it might be needed. The downloading feature can be enabled, by request, by your IRIS Connect administrator for your organisation.
