This is to inform you of Oregon SB 187, the Oregon Student Information Protection Act, which goes into effect July 1, 2016

About OSIPA

OSIPA was designed to prohibit companies from storing K-12 student data so that students do not unintentionally disclose sensitive personal information while using educational technology in the classroom.  It would end targeted advertising based on information obtained or inferred from the student's online behavior.

What does this mean?

Starting July 1st, operators of Internet website, online service, online application or mobile application with actual knowledge that their site, service or application is used primarily for kindergarten through grade 12 schools; and was designed and marketed for kindergarten through grade 12 schools, will have to indicate in their privacy policy that they are complying with Oregon SB 187.  If this is not the case, usage of such service or application will be terminated until changes to their privacy policy is made.
