Accessibility & User Privacy

We are committed to ensuring that all users can enjoy the benefits of the Springshare Platform. All our public pages are designed with accessibility in mind, and we are working on making admin pages fully accessible too.

Patron privacy is critically important in a digital-first world. All patron-identifiable information is encrypted, and we conduct regular privacy audits. Local administrators can scrub and purge any patron identifiable-info at regular intervals.
