FERPA. iLearn, Inc. is compliant with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records.

Specifically, GlobalEd Connector agrees to comply with the provisions of CFR §99.33. To the extent that a public school shares personally identifiable information from an education record, iLearn agrees not to disclose that information to any other party without the prior consent of the parent or eligible student. Furthermore, any information received from a school is stored in a database that is not publically accessible.

In our normal course of business, the only personally identifiable information provided to GlobalEd Connector by a school is the first and last name of a student. We encourage schools to register students in the GlobalEd Connector system using only their first name and last initial, with up to two additional characters of the last name in order for the teacher in the classroom to identify specific students using the GlobalEd Connector system. Schools also have the option to provide no names of students but to register them with a unique identification number generated by the School, School District, or State.

Any information provided to iLearn by a school may be used by the officers, employees, and agents of GlobalEd Connector only for the purposes for which the disclosure was made.

GlobalEd Connector does not knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under age 13 without parental consent. GlobalEd Connector does not share children’s personally identifiable information with third parties.

CIPA. The Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA), a federal law addressing concerns regarding access to offensive content on library and school computers, imposes requirements on schools and libraries that receive funding for internet access through the “E-rate” program. GlobalEd Connector does not provide links to external resources, and does not contain inappropriate material.
