Student Online Privacy

Saigon South International School (SSIS) teachers, as part of their teaching and learning, make use of online resources and software. This is done in a phased, developmentally appropriate way. Students receive individualized usernames, passwords and restricted email accounts beginning in Grade 1. Some of the soft­ware appli­ca­tions and web-based ser­vices are oper­ated not by this school but by third par­ties. The table below lists some of the internet-based software that your child may have registered for using their ssis.edu.vn account. 

In order for our stu­dents to use these pro­grams and ser­vices, cer­tain per­sonal iden­ti­fy­ing infor­ma­tion -- gen­er­ally the student’s name and email address -- must be pro­vided to the website oper­a­tor.  

The regulation allows for schools such as ours to col­lec­tion per­sonal infor­ma­tion on behalf of all of its stu­dents, thereby elim­i­nat­ing the need for indi­vid­ual parental con­sent given directly to the website operator. 

The guidelines and regulations are specified in the Children's Online Privacy and Protection Act (COPPA) and the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation article 8.
