July 26, 2019 — Toddle has been awarded the iKeepSafe FERPA and COPPA Privacy badges in recognition of their 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, Toddle 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 are really glad to have received the iKeepSafe Privacy Certification for COPPA and FERPA,” said Deepanshu Arora, Founder and CEO of Toddle. “The certification just highlights our commitment to growing responsibly and creating a safe and secure environment for all of our users—teachers, students, and parents. Our goal is to help teachers do better what they do best, i.e. creating great learning experiences for students, and data privacy is central to achieving this goal of ours.”
“We congratulate Toddle for undergoing iKeepSafe’s comprehensive privacy assessment.” said Amber Lindsay, iKeepSafe Vice President. “Protecting student privacy is essential for keeping youth safe in the digital age. By completing our assessment, Toddle has demonstrated a commitment to the safety of their users.”
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 Toddle, their 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.
