FTC Releases 2012 Update to Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, "COPPA"


Today, The Federal Trade Commission enacted the final amendments to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Rule, which it had been working on since 2010. The amendments strengthen children's privacy protections and give parents greater control over the personal information that websites and online services may collect from children under 13. The Federal Trade Commission chose to update the Rule in order to keep up with changing technology, the increased use of mobile and tablet devices as well as the novel ways children use these devices. After several rounds of public comment and many roudtable sessions discussing the update, the Federal Trade Commission released the final changes to COPPA today.

Visit the Federal Trade Commission's website for more detailed information about the update.
