Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., has written to the CEO of Spiral Toys, seeking answers on the company's data protection practices in light of a breach affecting its CloudPets brand and more than 800,000 of its customers, Computerworld reports. Nelson said that incident called into question how well Spiral Toys was able to adhere to the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, the report states. Among his nine questions for the company were inquiries into the type of information Spiral Toys collects from its users via their products, if that information was sold to third-party vendors, and if the company provided notice of these collection practices, should they exist, to its customers, the letter states. He asked for a response from Spiral Toys by March 23.
