Please note that when Replit enters into agreements with Educational Institution Customers, Replit includes its U.S. Student Data Protection Addendum, pursuant to which Replit agrees to process Student User data in accordance with applicable U.S. federal and state student privacy laws (i.e., FERPA). To the extent there is any conflict between such contracts and the terms of this K-12 Privacy Statement, the terms of our contracts with Educational Institution Customers will control.
Replit is a signatory to the K-12 Student Privacy Pledge (“Student Privacy Pledge”) with respect to its Educational Services. Click here to learn more about the Student Privacy Pledge.
