Setting the standards in student data privacy.

HelpKidzLearn, the provider of accessible online software designed for children with special needs, has earned the iKeepSafe COPPA Safe Harbor, FERPA, and California Student Data Privacy Certifications – signifying their HelpKidzLearn Hub meets the highest standards for child safety and privacy. To ensure the effectiveness of their current security measures and to provide an extra layer of assurance to educators and parents, HelpKidzLearn partnered with iKeepSafe, a leading non-profit organisation championing child safety and privacy online. Their HelpKidzLearn Hub underwent a rigorous assessment, where their data practices and security protocols were reviewed against stringent security guidelines and regulations. The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) is a U.S. law that protects kids' online privacy by requiring parental consent for data collection from children under 13. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) ensures parents' rights over their children's educational records, including access and correction. In California, the Student Privacy Certified (CSPC) extends these protections with stricter regulations under AB 1584. HelpKidzLearn’s Hub is currently used by over 6,500 schools and organisations worldwide and specialises in a range of products suited to children with special needs. Their most popular product, Games and Activities, which offers game-based learning experiences that progress upwards from cause-and-effect skills. Other products within the Hub include ChooseIt Maker and ChooseIt Readymades, which specialise in multiple-choice and play-based activities; along with their interactive sensory stories and resources, known as Inclusive Stories. Finally, Insight, where teachers can access students with visual difficulties using eye gaze technology.
