Amended Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) Rule Compliance Deadline Approaching

Time flies when it comes to compliance deadlines   As we have blogged here, the Amended COPPA Rule compliance deadline is approaching.   And if you haven’t addressed your compliance issues by Monday, you will be late.

Effective July 1, 2013, regulations issued in the December 2012 amendment to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) will be subject to enforcement by the FTC. Operators of commercial web sites and online services (including mobile apps) that collect, use, or disclose personal information from children under 13 need to be aware of how the amended COPPA rule will affect their business practices, and what is required to stay in compliance. We have prepared a comprehensive guide to the specifics of the rule, including new requirements related to personal information that was collected prior to the rule being implemented, as well as tracking, and responsibility for third-party use of information.
