BLOOMBERG BNA WEBINAR EVENT: Get Ready to Comply with the FTC’s Updated Children’s Online Privacy Protection (COPPA) Rule
Tuesday, April 16, 2013
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM ET
In December 2012, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) issued substantial changes to the COPPA Rule which expand the basis for COPPA enforcement by the FTC and state attorneys general. These changes include (i) making additional companies subject to the updated COPPA Rule; (ii) expanding the types of personal information covered by the updated COPPA Rule; and (iii) increasing the liability of companies regarding information flowing to third parties through their websites.
With a compliance deadline of July 1, 2013, it’s time to focus on complying with the updated COPPA Rule. In this program, the speakers will provide real-world examples about how personal information is shared with plug-ins, analytics services and advertising networks to help participants understand how their websites and mobile applications might be impacted by the updated COPPA Rule.
