Proctorio receives IMS TrustEd Apps Data Privacy Seal

Proctorio has proudly met the criteria required to be awarded the IMS Data Privacy Seal for privacy and data security policies and practices. The IMS Global Learning Consortium is the leading, non-profit collaborative whose goal is to advance ed-tech interoperability, innovation, and learning impact.

The IMS TrustEd Apps Seal certifies that an ed-tech application or extension has satisfactorily completed the IMS TrustEd Apps vetting process. The product’s ratings on the IMS TrustEd Apps Rubric are reflective of each application or extension’s approach to four key areas: collecting data, maintaining security, sharing data with third parties, and managing advertisements.

During the vetting process, Proctorio met the highest level of expectations in all four areas, meaning that Proctorio’s policies transparently state: how data is collected, stored, and protected; whether data is shared with third parties; and how Proctorio manages its advertising. Finally, Proctorio’s Terms of Service and Privacy Policy were confirmed compliant with GDPR, FERPA, and COPPA regulations.

Mike Olsen, Founder and CEO of Proctorio, said: “Receiving the IMS Data Security Seal demonstrates Proctorio’s commitment to protecting user privacy and data security with transparency. This is yet another milestone that acknowledges our team’s urgency to surpass the industry’s most stringent security standards.”

Proctorio also recently became a SOC 2 Type 1 compliant proctoring provider, was recognized as an EdTech Digest finalist in the Student Data Privacy Solutions category for the 2021 EdTech Awards, and was featured on Forbes America’s Best Startup Employers 2021 list.
