COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) gives parents control over the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation's consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which outlines what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online.

Fair Information Practices

The Fair Information Practices Principles are the foundation of U.S. privacy law and the concepts they include have played a major role in the development of data protection laws throughout the world.

Likewise, we support the Individual Redress Principle, which guarantees individuals the right to pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who do not adhere to the law. In accordance with this principle, individuals should not only have enforceable rights against data users, but also be able to involve courts or government agencies in investigating and/or prosecuting non-compliance by data processors.
