What is COPPA – and why it matters to advertisers
For nearly 25 years, children’s online privacy in the United States has been governed by COPPA and its implementing rules, but COPPA is under scrutiny as regulators seek to apply it to today’s complex advertising ecosystem. increase.
COPPA prohibits collecting data from children under the age of 13 without verified parental consent. Advertisers, ad buyers, and sellers are exposed to the risk of collecting personal data of children from apps that are not clearly marked as made for children in the app store. As gatekeepers of mobile app stores, Google and Apple are well positioned to provide clarity, but require developers of apps that target children to identify that, or make that information prominent in app stores. I will never pick it up like that. Doing so will not only help parents protect their kids online, but it will also help ad tech companies comply with her COPPA.
