Church Keeps Families Safe & Accountable Online

Kids stumble on graphic pictures. Lonely students search for information on violence and suicide. Good men and husbands struggle with the powerful temptation of pornography.

These aren’t problems that affect other people; they’re hard challenges our families deal with.

Big Bear Baptist WPM Flyer

Luke Angus at First Baptist Church of Big Bear Valley was searching for a way to help families in the community ensure the positive web experiences they wanted. First Baptist reaches roughly 150 kids in their area in middle school, high school, and some college age as well.

“There aren’t that many solutions for families out there, and everything I tested left a lot to be desired,” said Luke. It was then he discovered WebProtectMe. Its family and parental controls acted less like a snooping hall monitor and more like a trusted trail guide, helping families keep away from the dangers and pitfalls of the full internet in their pocket while providing peace of mind and increased trust for every member of the family.

“What impressed me the most is it actually works as a web browser. That was the biggest problem with the other solutions I tried: They were very slow and crashed so much, they were just unusable.”  A child might have to live with that, but no teenager or adult would put up with it, Luke explained. He was surprised when WebProtectMe not only provided great filtering, but was actually reliable and well maintained—crafted with the web experience an adult would expect.

Protecting Families & Guiding Accountability

“The search for a solution started with our high school guys group…it’s a pretty powerful thing for a teenage guy to ask his parents for help staying accountable rather than the other way around.  Apple’s built-in parental controls were largely worthless…so many false positives I had to go through nearly every site on a regular basis and whitelist each one. WebProtectMe’s ability to whitelist sites remotely is genius and incredibly helpful. Some of my high school guys served as testers for  other safe browser apps, and within a few days, not a single guy would continue using them. They were not well maintained or developed—slow, crashy, and unreliable.

WebProtectMe has worked really well and they’ve been very supportive of us and our program.”

Your Data, Information & Communications are Yours alone…and only Yours!

Since the news broke about the so-called PRISM surveillance and data collection program run by the NSA, we’ve seen a lot of questions regarding whether Internet companies can be forced by the government to access and disclose data that is stored by customers in the cloud or in dedicated environments.

It is DigiTar’s policy that we will not access, transfer, or deliver data stored by our customers on DigiTar SaaS systems to any government authorities other than pursuant to a properly issued, lawful request from appropriate law enforcement officials or other order from a competent Legal body of the country in which our systems are physically located. This applies to requests from law enforcement and includes those made under the Patriot Act. By agreement, our customers own the data they store on DigiTar systems.

This includes allowing them full control of the resources, and control of passwords used to access their data. Because of this, we take the view that, in legal terms, DigiTar has no “possession” over customer stored data; and that we are legally prohibited from accessing that data on our own.

DigiTar has not participated in any data mining or collection of customer data located within its hosted environments for U.S. law enforcement or security agencies, including the PRISM program. We are adamant about protecting the privacy rights of our customers and we continue to enforce policies to ensure customer-owned data is secure.
