November 19, 2018 —TechPilot Labs has earned the iKeepSafe COPPA Safe Harbor, FERPA, and California Student Data Privacy Certifications. These certifications signify that TechPilot’s mobile device management and Chromebook classroom management products have been proactively and independently assessed by iKeepSafe, an experienced privacy protection organization.

COPPA certification, among other things assures parents and educators that any collected data is not used for marketing purposes. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that affords parents the right to have access to their children’s education records and have some control over any personally identifiable information.
“We are pleased to earn these key privacy certifications, showing our commitment to keeping student data safe,” said Jarrett Volzer, TechPilot founder and CEO.
“By earning the iKeepSafe COPPA Safe Harbor, FERPA, and California Student Privacy Certifications, TechPilot Labs has clearly shown their dedication to safeguarding student data,” said iKeepSafe President Holly Hawkins. “Schools can now feel confident that TechPilot Labs meets iKeepSafe’s high standards of data privacy protection.”
