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.
