Compliance at Helperbird

Helperbird will never sell, store, or consume any user data.

Our dedication is especially profound when it comes to protecting the rights and safety of students and children under the age of 13. In alignment with our terms of service, we rigorously adhere to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), ensuring a secure and compliant environment for every user.

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

Our browser extension, designed to enhance the browsing experience, stands firm in its commitment to not collect any personal information or education records. In strict compliance with FERPA:

We do not access, use, or disclose any education records.

Our tools are crafted to ensure that student privacy is respected and protected at all times, and we do not knowingly collect or store any personal information from our users in this context.

Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)

In line with COPPA, Helperbird adopts a zero-tolerance policy towards collecting personal information from children under the age of 13. Our approach is designed to guarantee a safe, enriching online experience without compromising privacy:

No Personal Information Required

Our app functions without needing any personal details from our users, ensuring children can safely enhance their browsing without risk.

Understanding the importance of accessibility and privacy for users of all ages, Helperbird is committed to the principles set by COPPA and FERPA. We strive to create a safe and accessible online environment for everyone, including the most vulnerable users:

For users under 13, additional steps, including the requirement for parental or guardian consent, are in place to ensure safety and compliance with legal standards.

In-App (Extension) Verification

After signing up, users of the Helperbird extension are given the option to allow email verification associated with their browser profile. This process is crucial for accessing Pro features but is designed with privacy at its core. We do not engage in tracking or storing personal information, underscoring our commitment to not knowingly collect or store any personal data.

Subscription Key Method

For users preferring to maintain their privacy, we offer a subscription key method as an alternative. This option provides access to Pro features without the need to disclose an email address, aligning with our commitment to privacy and user choice.

Continuous Compliance and Improvement

We are continuously working to ensure our services comply with the latest standards, conducting regular reviews and updates to our practices. This commitment to ongoing improvement helps us stay in line with compliance laws and maintain the highest levels of privacy and security for our users.

Verifiable Parental Consent

To comply with online safety regulations for children under 13, we require schools or teachers to obtain parental consent before allowing a student under 13 to allow Helperbird to know their email. This step is necessary for us to verify whether the student has access to Helperbird Pro or is included in a Helperbird Pro Unlimited subscription. It's important to clarify that we're asking for the student's email, not for personal information, solely to check their subscription status.

We prioritize privacy, which is why our free version doesn't require users to log in or provide an email. For those who opt for Helperbird Pro, we offer a subscription key as an alternative. This method allows access to Pro features while maintaining email privacy, ensuring users can enjoy our services without sharing more information than they're comfortable with.
