Austin, Texas (PRWEB) January 06, 2015
InfoSnap®, Inc., the nation’s leading provider of cloud-based registration management solutions, designed specifically for Pre K-12 independent, charter, and public schools, announced today that it has signed the Student Privacy Pledge sponsored by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) and The Future of Privacy Forum. In doing so, InfoSnap joins other notable K-12 technology pioneers such as Follett, Edmodo, and Microsoft.
“In order to provide services to its more than 650 K-12 clients, InfoSnap processes personal information for millions of students and families,” says Louis J. Trotter, Jr., InfoSnap’s President and CEO. “It is important that those clients, families, and students know that InfoSnap will not sell or misuse this data. By signing the Student Privacy Pledge, we are reaffirming a commitment to privacy that we first made when we started in business 15 years ago.”
The Pledge will hold school service providers 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
“Data privacy is one of the most important issues affecting the education technology industry. Families and students need to be sure that the information they believe they are disclosing for educational purposes will not be misused by service providers. We are happy to be a leader in this effort and we challenge other K-12 service providers to join us,” says Trotter.
