The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a US federal law that protects the privacy of students’ education records, including personally identifiable and directory information. Lab.computer has made the following contractual commitments that attest to FERPA compliance:
In its Online Services Terms, Lab.computer agrees to be designated as a “school official” with “legitimate educational interests” in customer data as defined under FERPA. When handling student education records, Lab.computer agrees to abide by the limitations and requirements imposed by 34 CFR 99.33(a) just as school officials do.
Lab.computer also contractually commits not to disclose customer data except as the educational institution directs, as described in the contract, or as required by law. Schools that provide education records to Lab.computer can thus be assured that those records are subject to stringent contractual restrictions regarding their use and disclosure.
