Trust is built through transparency, and we believe it’s important that schools, teachers, families, and students understand how we protect their data when they are using our solutions.
The Common Sense Privacy Program published privacy evaluations of the top 10 edtech products used in schools and districts across the U.S.
Summit Learning received their highest score.
Our core set of commitments:
Data is used solely for educational purposes.
We only use student personal information for educational purposes. No exceptions.
Data is never for sale.
We never sell the personal information of any student or user
You own and control your own data.
School staff, families, teachers, and students own and control their personal information (not Gradient Learning or Summit Learning).
We go beyond compliance.
In addition to compliance with federal privacy laws like the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), we voluntarily comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), and are committed to the Software & Information Industry Association and Future of Privacy Forum’s Student Privacy Pledge.
We practice privacy by design.
Everything we do—from improvements to the platform to how we train our staff—is deeply mindful of privacy and security.
We only work with trusted partners.
We rely on service providers to help develop and support our offerings. As part of these partnerships, they are required to comply with strict privacy and security terms.
We’re committed to continuous improvement.
We’re committed to evolving our security as technology evolves and work with families, schools, vendors, and industry leaders to ensure we’re upholding the best practices in privacy and security.
