Administrator’s guide to usage on apps, software and website ...
EdPrivacy helps ensure that the software and websites your students use are compliant with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), FERPA and other student data privacy regulations. This easy-to-understand privacy scoring system cuts through the legalese to help you understand exactly how the company plans on using student data, allowing you to make informed decisions. You can share this information with parents via Education Framework hosted public pages, ensuring you're in compliance and with local, state and federal student data privacy legislation.
EdPrivacy analyzes every app and website you submit and gives you a score based on a five-star system to show you how safe your student data is. If it doesn’t rank five stars, they can tell you exactly why so that you and parents know what personal information is being collected, how it’s retained, if that information will be used for commercial purposes and if parents have the ability to review or delete the student data that’s collected. You can then determine, based on the recommendations, if the software can be used in your classrooms, if direct parental consent is required or if you should stop using the software altogether.
