COPPA and CIPA deal exclusively with websites that children can access themselves. fastIEP is only accessible by educators and parents. Children never log in to fastIEP, so COPPA and CIPA are not relevant.

FERPA protects the privacy of student personal details and educational records. With fastIEP, the only personal information we store is the student’s name. We don’t store address, phone number, date of birth, grades, etc. fastIEP’s terms of service strictly prohibit us from sharing, selling, or otherwise transferring any data to any third parties. For increased protection, some schools enter only the student’s first name, a code/nickname, or student identifier instead of the full name.

HIPAA is applicable only to health care providers. fastIEP does not provide health care services or insurance, and therefore is not a "covered entity" by HIPAA.

PPRA covers only the collection of certain sensitive information about students' and their families' political affiliations, religious practices, etc. fastIEP does not collect any information that is covered by PPRA.
