TickTalk Earns iKeepSafe COPPA Safe Harbor Certification

PRESS RELEASE

July 25, 2022 —— TickTalk has been assessed and awarded the iKeepSafe COPPA badge in recognition of its alignment with iKeepSafe’s guidelines surrounding the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).

The iKeepSafe COPPA Assessment badge assists parents and guardians in easily identifying websites, apps, data management platforms, or other technology products to comply with COPPA, a federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. Products that carry the iKeepSafe Safe Harbor program badge provide educators and parents with the assurance that the product is compliant with COPPA, a Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Rule designed to ensure that parents remain in control of personal information collected from their children online.

“We’re guided by the idea that the technology products our children use shouldn’t cost families their peace of mind,” said Ying Gong, President and Co-Founder of TickTalk Tech LLC. “With more families understanding the importance of protecting our children’s digital footprint, we’re excited to be spearheading a new era of responsible tech products for kids that prioritizes transparency.”

“iKeepSafe congratulates TickTalk on taking this essential step in protecting youths’ personal information,” said Amber Lindsay, President and CEO of iKeepSafe. “Each day, more school districts and parents are making privacy and safety a priority. It is important that they have a quick means of determining whether products are safe to use.”

Products participating in the iKeepSafe COPPA Safe Harbor program must undergo a rigorous, annual re-evaluation to continue displaying the iKeepSafe badge. For the evaluation, an independent privacy expert reviewed TickTalk, their privacy policy and practices, as well as their data security practices.

For over a decade, iKeepSafe has been a trusted resource for schools and parents looking for balanced information about safe and healthy use of connected technologies.
