Frequently Asked Questions Related to FERPA Compliance

  • How does YuJa receive PII from education records?

    As a service provider to educational institutions, our company is considered a “school official” under FERPA. We may receive PII through contractual agreements with schools because we’re performing a service that furthers a “legitimate educational interest.”

  • What responsibilities do we have regarding student data?

    We must maintain student PII on behalf of, and at the direction of, the educational institution. We cannot use student PII for purposes other than those permitted by FERPA and our agreements with schools.

  • Can we use student data for marketing or advertising?

    No, we cannot sell student PII or use it for interest-based advertising. YuJa Inc. does not disclose, release, or sell any customer data to external entities. With specific regard to FERPA, we comply with all requirements regarding the maintenance and disclosure of student data.

  • What if a parent or student requests access to their data from us directly?

    Parents or eligible students must contact their educational institution to request access to, review, or delete student PII. If needed, we can assist the institution in fulfilling these requests.

  • How can we help educational institutions comply with FERPA?

    We can provide secure data storage, encryption, access controls, and tools that allow institutions to manage and protect student data. We also offer clear policies on data use and deletion.
