TRiO Perks mission is to help TRIO Programs create a positive climate that encourages students to actively participate in TRIO. The TRiO Perks Service is purchased by TRIO Programs.
TRiO Perks enters into an agreement with the purchasing organization that defines our commitment to protecting data and to ensuring the availability of our service to the organization. Our core commitment can be found in our Platform Terms of Service.
Subscribing organizations fully control who can use the service. In some instances, this will include children under the age of 13. The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) defines what we can and cannot do with respect to users under the age of 13. Our COPPA Notice outlines our compliance with COPPA. This is updated annually and you should read this if you have a child under the age of 13 who is a student at an organization who uses TRiO Perks.
