K-12 School Service Providers Pledge To Protect Student Privacy

The Future of Privacy Forum (FPF) and the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) today announced a K-12 school service providers' Pledge to safeguard student privacy built around a dozen commitments regarding the collection, maintenance, and use of student personal information.

The Pledge will make clear that school service providers are accountable to:

  • Not sell student information
  • Not behaviorally target advertising
  • Use data for authorized education purposes only
  • Not change privacy policies without notice and choice
  • Enforce strict limits on data retention
  • Support parental access to, and correction of errors in, their children’s information
  • Provide comprehensive security standards
  • Be transparent about collection and use of data

The Pledge and more information about how to support the Pledge are available at http://studentprivacypledge.org/.
