The U.S. Federal Trade Commission announced it will accept comments on the effectiveness of amendments made to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Rule back in 2013. The COPPA Rule requires websites that collect data from users under the age of 13 to provide notice and obtain consent from parents whenever a child’s data is collected, used and disclosed. The FTC seeks feedback on whether the rule affected young users’ ability to access the sites and if the rule properly defines an online service or website that is “directed to children.” The agency will host a workshop on this topic Oct. 7. Comments will be accepted for 90 days once a notice is published in the Federal Register.
