It looks too good to be true. Is this real?

How does Jibo respect my privacy?

A combination of technology and company policies are used to protect users privacy. Jibo complies with FTC Bureau of Consumer Protection guidelines including the Children’s Online Privacy and Protection Act (COPPA). A company security officer reviews security of all customer data at all phases of use. Jibo employs industry-standard best practices regarding the way data is stored and transferred. Passwords are stored using cryptographic one-way hash functions. This ensures that nobody, even the company security officer, can ever gain access to a user's password.

How does Jibo respect my privacy?

A combination of technology and company policies are used to protect users privacy. Jibo complies with FTC Bureau of Consumer Protection guidelines including the Children’s Online Privacy and Protection Act (COPPA). A company security officer reviews security of all customer data at all phases of use. Jibo employs industry-standard best practices regarding the way data is stored and transferred. Passwords are stored using cryptographic one-way hash functions. This ensures that nobody, even the company security officer, can ever gain access to a user's password.
