Student Privacy Rights

Privacy LawsStudent Privacy Rights vary from nation to nation. MJR strives to act in compliance with the rights established for student privacy in the US, Canada, Israel, and UN Member Nations. We believe that compliance with these four sets of national laws will have us in compliance for any other nation a student might hail from, but will certainly research this when the case arises to ensure that there is no breach on our part.

  • US students: your rights are established and protected by FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974).
  • Canadian students: your rights are established and protected by PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act  of 1999); and in Ontario, MFIPPA (Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act of 1990) and the Education Act of 1990.
  • Israeli students: your rights are established and protected by the State Education Law of 1953.
  • EU Member Nation students: your rights are established by the EU Privacy Directive.
