  • Your child’s personally identifiable information cannot be sold or released for any commercial purposes.

 

  • If your child is under age 18, you have the right to inspect and review the complete contents of your child’s education records.

 

  • Safeguards must be in place to protect your child’s personally identifiable data when it is stored or transferred. These safeguards must meet industry standards and best practices. Examples of such safeguards include encryption, firewalls, and password protection.
