Parents and Educators
PRIVO recognizes the importance of:
- Your time
- Your privacy
- The privacy and safety of your kids' information
- Parental controls over what your kids do online
PrivoLock™ is a free service that allows kids and their parents to create a sign–on name and password for use across all PrivoLock™–enabled websites. Parents have control over which sites and what activities on those sites their kids may participate in. Parents also have control over how the companies interact with their kids. As COPPA (the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act) dictates, parents can edit, change or delete their child's profile, and all personal identifiable information is securely stored.
With PRIVO, you have control over which sites your child interacts with and what they do when they get there.
The result: You can rest easy knowing he or she is having a safe online experience.
The other children safety success factor is Teachers. As the online environment becomes more important in the teaching-learning process, teachers access the Internet to enhance the learning experience. PRIVO enables teachers to register their students at multiple sites without repetitive data entry and provides a single place to manage passwords and subscriptions. PRIVO is also working with leading industry organizations to develop programs to help teachers understand their role in COPPA, CIPA (the Children's Internet Privacy Act) and other privacy legislation that affects Internet use in the classroom. PRIVO developed a special Teacher's Module to meet your needs for registration and account management. If you have any suggestions, please send us an email email@example.com.
PrivoLock™ benefits for Teachers
Schools are a place where kids use the Internet for homework, research and learning activities. Providing a safe environment and choosing good sites for kids is a big task for educators. PrivoLock™ gives educators safe choices when building surfing options.
Educators will be able to register multiple students at multiple websites to take advantage of exciting online curriculum, when the school's own polices allow them to do so. With PrivoLock™, the personal information of every child will be safely registered and safe guarded. In addition, once a child is a PrivoLock™ user, registration on additional sites is one click away. PrivoLock™ makes registration easy.
Educators want to create engaging Web portals where kids can surf. Teachers can use PRIVO to find acceptable websites. They can create different groups of sites for different educational programs. PrivoLock™ helps teachers create better Web experiences.
If a site that an educator wants to use in class is not on the approved list, PRIVO takes charge by contacting the site and presenting the advantages of PrivoLock™ protection. If the site becomes a member of PRIVO, the educator knows that it is a safe place to build into their educational program. PrivoLock™ makes it easier for teachers to develop engaging, appropriate and safe online educational programs.
