Gnosis IQ Assurances Related to the Family Educational Rights Privacy Act

Gnosis IQ understands that many of its agency and institutional clients are subject to the Family Educational Rights Privacy Act (“FERPA”) and provides this statement of its data protection practices to provide assurance to those clients.

To the extent Gnosis IQ receives from its clients’ education records (as FERPA defines that term), Gnosis IQ notes that the client chooses what information to provide to Gnosis IQ and also configures who—e.g., employees, students, and parents—has access to that information via the Gnosis IQ product/system. In addition, Gnosis IQ offers the following assurances:

  • Gnosis IQ provides reasonable security for the education records (and the personally identifiable information contained therein). Only those Gnosis IQ employees and agents with a “need to know” can access the education records.
  • Gnosis IQ does not use education records for any purpose other than the purposes for which the information was provided to Gnosis IQ or in attempting to enhance the usability or efficacy of our products, services, and systems.
  • Gnosis IQ does not disclose education records to third parties except at the direction of the client who provided the education records to Gnosis IQ.
  • Gnosis IQ will consider destroying education records upon the written request of the client who provided the education records.
  • There are various circumstances when Gnosis IQ may deny the request, including (but not limited to) when Gnosis IQ believes that applicable law or court order requires it to retain the education records, when Gnosis IQ believes that retention of the education records is necessary to protect its rights, or when the request extends to backed-up, electronically stored education records, the destruction of which would be unreasonably burdensome.
