TrustEd Apps™ Seal of Data Privacy
Data Privacy Certification Requirements
With its community-developed app vetting process, the1EdTech community strives to ensure that educational technology applications fulfill requirements for privacy and security and to assure responsible usage of the information gathered by these applications.
For suppliers, the TrustEd Apps Seal of Data Privacy identifies that an application satisfactorily completes the TrustEd Apps vetting process, is certified for Data Privacy, and its ratings on the TrustEd Apps Data Privacy Rubric are fully disclosed and meet a specified level of expectation of data privacy.
For educational institutions, the TrustEd Apps Seal certifies that an institution successfully completes training in the TrustEd Apps data privacy vetting process and possesses the necessary skills to vet applications for privacy and security using the TrustEd Apps Data Privacy Rubric. Institutions may seek out suppliers with the TrustEd Apps Seal of Data Privacy. They may require that suppliers without the seal obtain it before procuring those resources and include the requirement for the seal in their contracts and requests for proposals (RFPs). 1EdTech staff collaborates with suppliers to complete the TrustEd Apps data privacy vetting process to address potential or identified areas of concern.
