In a blog post on Wednesday, Google claimed it had done nothing to invade the privacy of students using its laptop educational software, pushing back against accusations from a top advocacy group.

The response comes as the Electronic Frontier Foundation filed a complaint on Tuesday with the Federal Trade Commission, asking the agency to probe Google for breaking its own privacy commitments. The EFF alleged that Google for Education, the search giant’s school initiative, collects and shares personal student data in violation of the Student Privacy Pledge, which Google signed in January.
