Tools4ever, a market leader in identity governance and administration (IGA), announces that it has signed the Student Privacy Pledge. This pledge aims to ensure the privacy of student data, including the collection, maintenance and use of student personal information.
The Student Privacy Pledge outlines a dozen commitments regarding the responsible collection, maintenance, and use of student personal information. School technology service providers have made to affirm K-12 student data is maintained in a secure, private and responsible framework. The Pledge was developed by FPF and SIIA in 2014 with guidance from school service providers, educator organizations, and other stakeholders following a convening by U.S. Representatives Jared Polis (CO) and Luke Messer (IN). The pledge has also been endorsed by the National PTA and the National School Boards Association, among others.
“Companies that serve students understand that they must maintain the trust of parents, students and teachers,” said Jules Polonetsky, executive director, FPF. “Although many states are passing new laws to govern student privacy, the pledge plays a key role in setting a national standard for protecting student data and ensures companies are aware of the central restrictions in statutes, such as FERPA and COPPA.”
“Tools4ever has, from the beginning, had a commitment to enabling the education industry to streamline their account and password management processes while also putting measures in place to maintain and ensure the utmost in data security,” said Dean Wiech, managing director at Tools4ever. “We are proud to sign the pledge and to assist with furthering the protection of student information.”
