MDM: Privacy Information

Stanford University respects your privacy and cannot access your application data, your call history, your voicemail, or your SMS messages.

We cannot and do not collect your personal data. We do not track end-user location information.

Here's what we collect and why:

  • Device and network ID, and information on storage capacity, operating system, carrier, and firmware (to identify your device if it’s lost or stolen)
  • List of apps installed by MDM but not your personal apps 
  • Add/remove accounts (to set up Stanford Email and Calendar [if you opt in])
  • Add/remove restrictions (to establish minimum device management best practices such as requiring a device passcode and auto lock)
  • Remotely erase Stanford  data  (if you leave the University or you lose your device). The University will never do a full wipe of your phone — only you can do that.
  • Jailbreak or root detection (if you work with Restricted data, your device must use its built-in security features. Jailbreak or root detection informs you if these features have been disabled).

This  data is considered to be Confidential Information in the University's data classification program.

See the Administrative Guide for Stanford's official policy regarding privacy. If you have any questions about this policy, please submit a HelpSU request

For each device, we store the following:

  • Name
  • UDID (Unique Device Identifier)
  • Wi-Fi MAC address
  • Phone number
  • Cellular technology
  • Cellular network ID
  • Model   
  • Model name   
  • SIM carrier
  • Last carrier   
  • Serial number
  • Carrier settings version
  • Modem firmware version
  • Capacity
  • Jailbreak or root status

We also store the time of enrollment in the service and the time of each access to the service by your mobile device.
