ferpa (the family educational rights and privacy act)

FERPA is a federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. Originally passed in 1974, FERPA has been updated most recently in 2011. FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children’s education records. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level.

Key Privacy Rights under FERPA:

  • FERPA requires that federally funded institutions, under programs administered by the U.S. Department of Education, comply with certain procedures with regard to disclosing and maintaining educational records. FERPA was not enacted to preclude the disclosure of educational records simply because the records identify a student by name; rather, it was designed to protect the student’s educational information and status as a student
  • FERPA prohibits the disclosure of a student’s “protected information” to a third party. This disclosure is prohibited whether it is made by hand delivery, verbally, fax, mail, or electronic transmission.

coppa (children's online privacy protection act)

In effect as of 2000, COPPA is to place parents in control over what information is collected from their young children online. COPPA is designed to protect children under age 13 while interacting with online applications and the Internet. The act applies to operators of commercial websites and online services directed to children under 13 that collect, use, or disclose personal information from children, and operators of general audience websites or online services with actual knowledge that they are collecting, using, or disclosing personal information from children under 13. The Rule also applies to websites or online services that have actual knowledge that they are collecting personal information directly from users of another website or online service directed to children.
