April 18, 2022— JASON Learning 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, JASON Learning will display the iKeepSafe Privacy badges to show that the product has been proactively and independently assessed by an experienced privacy protection organization.
This achievement is significant because it demonstrates JASON Learning’s commitment to protecting the privacy of students and their families. The privacy badges provide reassurance to school districts, educators, and parents that JASON Learning is a safe and trustworthy platform for students to learn and explore STEM education.
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.
