April 13, 2023—Inspirit has been assessed and awarded the iKeepSafe FERPA and COPPA Privacy badges in recognition of its alignment with iKeepSafe’s best practice guidelines surrounding the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). As part of this achievement, Inspirit will display the iKeepSafe Privacy badges to show that the product has been proactively and independently assessed by an experienced privacy protection organization.

iKeepSafe Privacy Assessment badges help schools easily identify websites, apps, data management platforms, and other technology products that are in compliance with various privacy laws governing student data. Products that carry the iKeepSafe seal provide educators and parents with the assurance that the product meets iKeepSafe’s standards in the areas of privacy, safety, and security.

“We congratulate Inspirit for undergoing iKeepSafe’s comprehensive privacy assessment.” said Amber Lindsay, iKeepSafe CEO and President. “Protecting student privacy is essential for keeping youth safe in the digital age. By completing our assessment, Inspirit has demonstrated a commitment to the safety of their users.” 

“Student safety is of utmost importance as more schools adopt Edtech solutions to address learning gaps,” said Inspirit co-founder Amrutha Vasan. “We’re proud to receive 2 certificates from iKeepSafe as we continue our journey to provide students interactive XR STEM experiences in a safe environment that students, teachers, parents, and administrators can trust.”

Products participating in the iKeepSafe assessment program must undergo annual re-evaluation to continue displaying the iKeepSafe badge. For the evaluation, an independent privacy expert reviewed Inspirit, its policies, and their data governance practices.

For over a decade, iKeepSafe has been a trusted resource for schools and parents looking for balanced information about safe and healthy use of connected technologies.
