We take the security of student data seriously. Our platform employs state-of-the-art encryption protocols and stringent access controls to safeguard sensitive information from unauthorized access or data breaches. From emergency contact details to medical records, we prioritize the confidentiality and integrity of every piece of data entrusted to us.

SOC 2 Certification: A Gold Standard in Security

FIPPA Compliance: Protecting Privacy in Education

In addition to SOC 2 certification, we are fully compliant with the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA).

By adhering to FIPPA standards, we ensure that student privacy rights are upheld and respected at all times.
