May 19, 2022 —— Polygon has been assessed and awarded the iKeepSafe COPPA badge in recognition of their alignment with iKeepSafe’s guidelines surrounding the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).
The iKeepSafe COPPA Assessment badge assists schools to easily identify websites, apps, data management platforms or other technology products that are in compliance with COPPA, a federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. Products that carry the iKeepSafe Safe Harbor program badge provide educators and parents with assurance that the product is compliant with COPPA, a Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Rule designed to ensure that parents remain in control of personal information collected from their children online.
“Polygon is a new kind of psychology practice that specializes in assessments and support for dyslexia, ADHD, and other learning differences. We utilize technology to provide a better experience for both clients and our expert team of in-house licensed psychologists,” said Polygon Founder and CEO Jack Rolo.
“iKeepSafe congratulates Polygon on taking this essential step in protecting youths’ personal information,” said Amber Lindsay, president and CEO of iKeepSafe. “Each day, more school districts and parents are making privacy and safety a priority. It is important that they have a quick means of determining whether products are safe to use.”
Meryll Dindin, Polygon Co-founder and CTO also commented that “given the intersection of child and healthcare data, security and compliance are a key part of our DNA as a company”.
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.
