FTC to Review Children’s Online Privacy Rule
The Federal Trade Commission has scheduled a public meeting to consider changes to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA") Rule. "Protecting Kids’ Privacy Online: Reviewing the COPPA Rule" will be held June 2, 2010 at the FTC Conference Center in Washington, DC. The COPPA Rule applies to 1) operators of commercial Web sites and online services directed to children under 13 that collect, use, or disclose personal information from children; and 2) operators of Web sites or online services focusing on general audiences where those entities have actual knowledge that they are collecting, using, or disclosing personal information from children under 13.
The free event will examine the COPPA Rule in light of the wave of new technologies (e.g., smart phones, interactive TV) that weren’t present when the Rule became effective 10 years ago. To recommend a speaker or submit a proposed topic for discussion, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any questions about the COPPA Rule, or other privacy matters, please contact any member of the Frankfurt Kurnit Technology, Digital Media, & Privacy Group.
