The Rule applies to operators of commercial websites and online services (including mobile apps) directed to children under 13 that collect, use, or disclose personal information from children, and operators of general audience websites or online services with actual knowledge that they are collecting, using, or disclosing personal information from children under 13.Some FAQs refer to a type of document called a Statement of Basis and Purpose. The Rule also applies to websites or online services that have actual knowledge that they are collecting personal information directly from users of another website or online service directed to children.A court can hold operators who violate the Rule liable for civil penalties of up to ,654 per violation.
The final Rule amendments, among other things: The FTC has a comprehensive website which provides information to the public on a variety of agency activities.Examples of online services include services that allow users to play network-connected games, engage in social networking activities, purchase goods or services online, receive online advertisements, or interact with other online content or services. If you are concerned about your children accessing online pornography or other inappropriate materials, you may want to consider a filtering program or an Internet Service Provider that offers tools to help screen out or restrict access to such material.Mobile applications that connect to the Internet, Internet-enabled gaming platforms, voice-over-Internet protocol services, and Internet-enabled location-based services also are online services covered by COPPA. COPPA only applies to personal information collected online children, including personal information about themselves, their parents, friends, or other persons. In enacting the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, Congress determined to apply the statute’s protections only to children under 13, recognizing that younger children are particularly vulnerable to overreaching by marketers and may not understand the safety and privacy issues created by the online collection of personal information. The Rule governs the online collection of personal information from children by a covered operator, even if children volunteer the information or are not required by the operator to input the information to participate on the webssite or service. Information about such tools is available at organizations such as and from manufacturers of several operating systems. COPPA covers operators of general audience websites or online services only where such operators have that a child under age 13 is the person providing personal information.The first thing you should do is read the FTC’s Children’s Privacy guidance materials.
