How does Prodigy use Third Party Service Providers?

Prodigy is very serious about protecting the privacy of teachers, parents and students. We have partnered with a third-party privacy expert (iKeepSafe) to ensure we remain fully compliant with all federal privacy legislation (like FERPA and COPPA) as well as state legislation (like SOPIPA or AB1584 in California).

A key element in keeping out site up and running is through the use of third party service providers. As a website trusted by millions of educators, parents, and students worldwide, Prodigy is committed to never selling or leasing your or your students’ personal information with third parties.

Prior to engaging into a relationship with a third party service provider, Prodigy will first review their privacy policies and ensure that these are compliant with those regulations that Prodigy is adhering to and that they are aware that Prodigy is directed to children. Third party service providers who will have access to any Personally Identifiable Information (PII) will have their privacy policies reviewed by Prodigy on an annual basis to ensure that any changes made do not affect compliance with all applicable legislation.
