iKeepSafe SOPIPA Badge

iKeepSafe SOPIPA Badge

iKeepSafe has made available a new SOPIPA badge for education service providers to help them communicate to schools, parents and other stakeholders that they are responsible with student data and are complying with the laws that govern student privacy.

The California Student Online Personal Information Protection Act is quickly being adopted by other states as the model legislation to govern the use of student data. iKeepSafe’s California Student Privacy Assessment builds off of its FERPA Assessment and is designed to help educators and parents find products that meet the expectations of the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. iKeepSafe also operates a COPPA Safe Harbor recognized by the Federal Trade Commission, to help companies show compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act.

Visit iKeepSafe’s website to view the full list of student privacy assessments they offer here.
