Privacy Update: Complying with COPPA Under the FTC's New Children's Online Privacy Protection Rules

 

In December 2012, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) issued updated rules to the Child's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), which significantly expand COPPA's scope and application. COPPA, which governs the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information from children under 13 online, requires operators of websites and online services that are directed to children or that have actual knowledge that they are collecting information from children to provide notice to and obtain consent from the child's parents prior to collecting personal information from the child.

The new rules – which are effective July 1, 2013 – broaden the type of information covered by COPPA, apply to a much wider group of website and online service operators, and impose new data security, protection, retention, and deletion requirements.
