FPF submitted comments to the FTC on proposed amendments to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. FPF commends the FTC’s commitment to protect the privacy of children in a rapidly developing online marketplace. FPF’s comments focus on amendments affecting those areas that correspond with the organization’s specific expertise and experience, namely: (I) The proposal to modify the definition of “personal information”; (II) the proposed revisions directed to protecting the security, confidentiality and integrity of information collected from children; (III) geolocation issues; (IV) apps and platform issues; and (V) new parental consent mechanisms.
