House Members Introduce Student Privacy Bill

Congressmen Luke Messer (R-IN) and Jared Polis (D-CO) have introduced the "Student Digital Privacy and Parental Rights Act of 2015." The student privacy bill would prohibit companies from selling student information, using student information for targeted advertising, or otherwise disclosing student information for non-educational purposes. The Student Digital Privacy Act would implement portions of EPIC's Student Privacy Bill of Rights, including granting students access to their personal information collected by companies and requiring companies to provide notice of data security breaches. The bill is modeled on a new student privacy law in California.
