ScienceWiz assiduously complies with the federal Family Education Right to Privacy Act (“FERPA”). The FERPA protects the confidentiality of student educational records.
ScienceWiz assiduously complies with the California’s Student Online Personal Information Privacy Act (“SOPIPA“). SOPIPA is a comprehensive student student privacy law, and in January 2016 took effect in California and New Hampshire. The law:
- Prohibits K-12 mobile and online service operators from using student information to target advertisements to students;
- Prohibits online service providers from creating K-12 student profiles for commercial purposes; and
- Forbids companies from selling student information.
SOPIPA also prohibits companies from disclosing student information, unless the disclosure is: (1) for K-12 purposes; (2) for legal and regulatory compliance; (3) in response to a judicial process; (4) “to protect the safety of users or others or security of the site”; or (5) to the website’s service provider. Under SOPIPA, K-12 mobile and online service operators must establish security measures and delete student information at the request of a school or district. The law permits K-12 mobile and online service operators to use de-identified student information to improve educational products. SOPIPA also allows students to “download, export, or otherwise save or maintain their own student created data or documents.”
