Pikmykid Student Privacy
We take great pride in keeping your schools and students’ personal information safe and private. We constantly evaluate and improve upon our own privacy practices and standards by challenging ourselves and every person who works at PikMyKid to think closely about student privacy. We work closely with schools to understand their needs and concerns through feedback sessions to increase data privacy.
Student Privacy Pledge
