Data Privacy


Most educational applications are designed and managed by vendors who attempt to protect the identity of the individuals accessing the program and the data that they generate. However, a comprehensive review of student privacy, data security, and other safety issues is the responsibility of the school or district to ensure that appropriate safeguards of student data are in place. Vetting educational applications can provide additional assurance that the information gathered by these educational applications is being used responsibly.

The TrustEd Apps program for Data Privacy includes the 1EdTech process of vetting applications and certifying them for data privacy using the rubric which was collaboratively developed by the 1EdTech community.

The IMS TrustEd Apps program is a really important tool to demonstrate our commitment as a supplier to privacy. IMS helped us understand what we needed to do to meet our community's privacy requirements and needs. We now use the IMS data privacy rubric as part of our internal privacy auditing program.
