The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts requirements on websites and online services (including mobile applications) collecting, using, or disclosing data from children under 13 years of age. These requirements include clearly posting a privacy policy along with a direct notice to parents to obtain consent before collecting any personal information from the child. It also requires providing parents access to their child’s personal information to allow them to prohibit or delete this information. This rule further states data collected is retained only for as long as needed to fulfill the purpose of collecting the information.
