The FTC Collaborates Internationally to Protect Children's Online Privacy

Efforts are underway internationally by both the the Federal Trade Commission and 27 members of the Global Privacy Enforcement Network (GPEN), a group of privacy enforcement agencies around the world, to protect children's online privacy.
Studies by the FTC in 2012 found that many apps and websites weren't arming parents with the information they needed to make informed decisions about protecting their children's privacy. The FTC, in conjunction with privacy experts from the FTC's Office of Technology and Research and Investigation have started an initiative to analyze privacy disclosures, interactive features and information collection practices of children’s mobile apps. Findings are expected to be released before the end of the year. 
Businesses looking for guidance on how to comply with COPPA can reach out to CARU, which is the FTC's first COPPA-approved Safe Harbor program. To learn more, please contact Jay Black [jblack@caru.bbb.org/(212) 705-0111] or Wayne Keeley (212) 705-0112.
