The Badger Group wants to make it easy for our customers to complete their projects efficiently and within budget. This is why we provide tools such as our InSite prepress portal and FTP site for quick, paperless proofing and file transfers.

Here you will find instructions for using our Badger Group tools for your print and direct mail projects.

Secure Data Procedures

The Badger Group takes seriously the handling of financial and protected health information (HIPPA). We have put the following procedures in place to handle secure data:

  • Secure data projects will be color-coded internally to highlight data sensitivity.
  • Data will be sent to The Badger Group via secure method – sftp, provided disk, etc.
  • Data will be placed on a local protected data folder that has been excluded from all backup and archive scripts. This is to prevent the files from being copied onto The Badger Group’s tape/disc backups.
  • Files will be completed internally and uploaded to Lorton Data for automated NCOA handling. Once completed, the files and reports will be returned to The Badger Group for our production needs. Lorton Data has completed Service Organization Control – Type 2 (SOC2) certification.
  • Names on all variable data proofs generated will be “John Q. Public” and those of Badger Group employees. This is to display that the behavioral needs of the files are being met. At no time will live data files be used to generate proofs.
  • Format files (used for variable data generation) will reside outside of the local protected data folder. This is done to insure that they are copied to our daily backup. There is no personal information associated with these files.
  • All variable output files are to reside within the local protected data folder, and content therein will be removed from our servers and destroyed.
  • Data destruction is a witnessed event and will be noted on the job ticket prior to closing the job.
