Only information that is needed for the Company to provide the Service is disclosed to the Company. These disclosures are authorized under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), a federal statute that regulates the privacy of student records by schools and other educational institutions that receive financial assistance from the U.S. Department of Education. The Company, as a contractor to such schools, receives the disclosures on the same basis as school officials, consistent with FERPA regulations.  The Company is subject to the same conditions on use and redisclosure of education records that govern all school officials, and the terms of this Privacy Policy are intended to comply fully with its obligations under FERPA.  In the event of any conflict between this Privacy Policy and FERPA, FERPA will govern.
