ProctorTrack is a mandatory SPYWARE enforced onto the students by Mohawk College in order to conduct tests and exams (as opposed to a more secure, reasonable alternative). We as a community of students understand that there needs to be certain precautions against cheating and to enforce academical honesty. However, the program enforced by Mohawk, ProctorTrack, is nothing short of malware, and requires access to extremely personal information. We, as students of Mohawk, care about who has access to our information, and a third party software with not even a Wikipedia page in their name is not acceptable. On their secluded website, they state that they "commit to safeguarding your information from malware, viruses, theft, data breaches, destruction, misuse, disclosure, and unauthorized access." However, this is just an attempt to sugar coat the fact that the amount of information gathered is massive. These kinds of "safeguards" are in position in every institution that you WILLINGLY lend your information to -- schools, banks, the CRA, your employers-- but these institutions only use the amount of information that they need (to comply with laws and regulations). As found on their website, ProctorTrack collects:

Name
Photograph of an identity document, such as a DRIVER'S LICENSE
Photograph of you
Telephone Number
Name of the Test Sponsor(s)
E-mail address
Test submissions
Screen-captures
Audio and video recordings of you taking tests 
Room scan- scan of the test-room environment
Biometric data: Face and optionally, Knuckle voice scan, which may be considered as biometric information under certain regulatory regimes
Hardware and software details: background process list, system configuration information, browser history (including browsing as well as downloads)

As one could easily see, these are some very invasive data that are being collected. Best part is, this is just the data that is being collected from the students and their computers. Imagine what could be done, should they want to.
