¿Cómo cumple Prodigy con la LEY 16-189 de Connecticut (CT)?

Prodigy se toma muy en serio la protección de la privacidad de los maestros, padres y estudiantes. Nos hemos asociado con iKeepSafe, experto en privacidad de la industria, para revisar nuestro cumplimiento de privacidad y hemos obtenido la certificación de conformidad con la Regla de protección de privacidad en línea para niños (COPPA), la Ley de privacidad y derechos educativos de la familia (FERPA) y la Certificación de privacidad de estudiantes de California (CSPC).

CT 16-189 es una ley pública específica de Connecticut sobre la privacidad de los datos de los estudiantes. CT 16-189 se basa en FERPA e incorpora varias disposiciones para proteger la privacidad de la información de los estudiantes, que incluyen:

  • Restringir cómo la información de los estudiantes puede ser utilizada por entidades que contratan para proporcionar software educativo y almacenamiento electrónico de registros de estudiantes y por operadores de sitios web, servicios en línea o aplicaciones móviles.
  • Aclarar que los datos de los estudiantes recopilados para fines escolares no son propiedad de ninguno de estos contratistas externos
  • Requiring local boards of education to notify parents when they execute a new contract with a software, data storage, or internet service provider
  • Stipulating data security and privacy provisions that must figure in all contracts between local school districts and software, data storage and internet service providers
  • Requiring school districts to withhold the release of student directory information if the local or regional board of education determines that a request for such information is not related to school purposes

 

Within CT 16-189 Prodigy would be considered an operator because we operate a website or online service that is designed and used for educational purposes and we collect and use some student information. As an operator, Prodigy is committed to:

  • NOT performing targeted advertising using student data
  • NOT storing/collecting student data for anything other than school purposes
  • NOT selling data to third parties 

In order to ensure that Prodigy is compliant with CT 16-189, where a contract is present with both local education authorities and third parties, each contract will contain certain provisions, including the following:

  • Pupil records provided by the education agency be the property of and under the control of the educational agency
  • Pupils retain possession and control of their content
  • Legal guardians or the pupils have the ability to review and/or correct personally identifiable information
  • Where a contract exists, Prodigy will not to retain pupil records beyond the terms of the contract, unless a parent/guardian is linked to the student account
  • Where a contract exists, third parties are not to use pupil record information for purposes beyond those specified in the contract
  • Prodigy will not use personally identifiable pupil record information to engage in targeted advertising
  • Prodigy will ensure the security and confidentiality of the records
  • Prodigy will notify the local education agency in the event of an unauthorized disclosure
  • Prodigy will work together with local educational agencies to ensure compliance with the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

Prodigy maintains a comprehensive set of security practices that are reasonably designed in accordance with commercial best practices to protect the security, privacy, confidentiality and integrity of student personal information against risks – such as unauthorized access or use, or unintended or inappropriate disclosure – through the use of administrative, technological and physical safeguards. Prodigy’s practices include a notification to school boards of unauthorized releases of information.
