COPPAediting

When we started posting the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Rule FAQs, we told you we’d update them periodically – and we’re doing our best to make good on that promise.

If you’re the COPPA cop at your company, you’ll want to take a look at the updated FAQ H.5 about verifiable parental consent.  What else is different? Revised FAQ H.10 addresses whether the developer of a kid-related app can use a third party – for example, an app store – to get parental consent on the developer’s behalf. And don’t miss brand new FAQ H.16, which mulls over the liability considerations if a platform wants to help app developers operate on that platform by providing a verifiable parental consent mechanism for them to use.

You’ll also see something new on the page: a note at the top highlighting the most recent revisions.

FAQ H.16 doesn't appear to be included in the current FAQ as of 7.16.14.
I'm very happy... and thanks
Unfortunately, the FAQs page has not been updated to reflect the changes (last update noted April 2014.) Please update for the world to see! Thank you!
Thank You Very Much
Is the link provided to the most recent revision? If one follows the link, there is no H.16 and the top of the page indicates the FAQs were revised in April 2014.
Anything we can do to help and Protect Children is not too much. Continue too send me emails and if there is anything I can help with, let me know. Dr Lee Jackson Esq.
Thanks you all
