May 12, 2016 – iKeepSafe announced that it will be awarding a FERPA privacy badge to Quizlet Inc. Quizlet is a digital learning platform hosting free study tools and games, including millions of user-generated study sets.

iKeepSafe’s FERPA badge is the first independent assessment program for the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. The program seeks to help educators and parents identify edtech services and tools that protect student data privacy.

“It is Quizlet’s mission to provide a place where everyone can learn, share knowledge, and advance their education, in or outside of the classroom. Strong data privacy and security practices are essential to maintaining a safe, supportive learning environment for all Quizlet users,” said Thompson Paine, Vice President of Operations and Business Development at Quizlet. “We are happy to work with iKeepsafe on following these best practices to better support the many K-12 students, teachers, and schools using our platform.”

“We congratulate Quizlet on demonstrating their commitment to privacy by obtaining the iKeepSafe FERPA badge,” said Marsali Hancock, President and CEO of iKeepSafe. “Schools are increasingly relying on independent, third party reviews of technology companies in order to determine the quality of their privacy and safety practices. They can now feel confident that Quizlet meets iKeepSafe’s standard of quality in this area.”

Products participating in the iKeepSafe FERPA assessment must undergo annual re-evaluation to continue displaying the iKeepSafe FERPA badge. For the evaluation, an independent privacy expert reviewed Quizlet, its privacy policy and practices, as well as its data security practices.
