The following outlines our policies relating to the major federal laws and regulations we research, investigate, and operate in accordance with. As federal laws and regulations are created and updated, so are our policies relating to them.
Each of these terms are part of our Terms of Service and this document is provided as a convenience in understanding how PBIS Rewards complies with federal laws and regulations.
|Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)||FERPA is the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, a federal law enacted to protect the privacy and accuracy of a student’s education records. Some states have enacted further enhancements to the federal law. FERPA is a compliance issue between the student and the School/School District. PBIS Rewards does not collect any Data directly from students that is subject to FERPA. All Data collected that is subject to FERPA is entered by the School/School District staff users. PBIS Rewards will support fully the school’s efforts to meet their FERPA obligations. If a parent or student contacts PBIS Rewards directly, PBIS Rewards will redirect the parent or student to the School/School District. If the School/School District needs assistance when fulfilling a FERPA request, PBIS Rewards will cooperate fully to ensure the School/School district is able to meet its obligation.|
We will support fully a School/School District’s efforts to meet its FERPA obligations. If a parent or student comes to us directly, we will refer them back to the School/School District and take any action requested by the School/School District related to their FERPA obligations.
|Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)||COPPA is the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. PBIS Rewards complies with COPPA. PBIS Rewards collects Data from students for the delivery of its educational services only and solely for the benefit of the student and the School/School District.|
PBIS Rewards may collect the following personal information directly from a student/child under 13: a) Student ID/Login Information; and b) Requests for Purchases. PBIS Rewards does not use any of this information for any purpose except for providing the PBIS Rewards service. PBIS Rewards does not maintain this Data longer than necessary to provide its educational service.
The School/School District consents to this collection as described in this section titled COPPA. The School/School District agrees that it has the right to consent with the collection of this limited data from students under 13 because it is used solely for educational purposes.
The School/School District can mark a student as “limited” so that the student is prevented from signing into the PBIS Rewards service. The student will still be an active student who can benefit from the PBIS Rewards service, but the only data collected by the PBIS Rewards service will be data entered by staff as part of using the PBIS Rewards service.
PBIS Rewards will provide the school with the required notices for COPPA compliance. This annual notice will be sent electronically to the School/School District and will be clearly available on the PBIS Rewards website at https://www.pbisrewards.com/policies/coppa/.
PBIS Rewards complies with COPPA. We collect limited information from students covered by COPPA and we use this information solely for the benefit of the student and the School/School District. Our consent to collect this data is provided by the School/School District by contracting for the PBIS Rewards Service. The School/School District can prevent a student from providing information directly to the PBIS Rewards Service if a parent/guardian has made that request. Last, PBIS Rewards does comply with the requirement of notice regarding COPPA.
|Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment|
|PBIS Rewards complies with The Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment (PPRA). PBIS Rewards does not survey students and does not use any personal information about students for any purposes other than delivering services to the School/School District.|
PPRA is specifically about surveying students and asking questions of a personal nature. We do not survey students.
|Americans with Disabilities Act|
|PBIS Rewards complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). As we create or update parts of our platform and services over time, we continually have the ADA in mind. This means we think about ease of access and use with individuals with a motor, auditory, cognitive, and/or visual disability. If a necessary accommodation becomes apparent, we will employ any reasonable measure to remedy the issue.|
PBIS Rewards will always do what we can to ensure every student who participates in our program can positively benefit, especially if a student has a disability.
If you have any questions regarding our compliance with law or regulation that is not included on the table above, please send us an email at [email protected] or contact us by phone at 1-844-458-7247.
