February 8, 2022 — Yaizy has been awarded the iKeepSafe COPPA badge in recognition of their alignment with iKeepSafe’s guidelines surrounding the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). As part of this achievement, Yaizy will display the iKeepSafe COPPA Assessment badge and COPPA Safe Harbor seal to identify that the product has been proactively and independently assessed by an experienced privacy protection organization.
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 seal 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.
