Disney, the world's most iconic kids brand, is under scrutiny by the Federal Trade Commission for flunking the ABCs of children's online privacy laws.
Eric Goldman, a professor of law at Santa Clara University School of Law and director of the school's High Tech Law Institute, had some pointed advice for websites and apps trying to comply with the new updates to the federal government's children's privacy law: avoid it.
Four months after the Federal Trade Commission passed sweeping updates to the children's online privacy law, the agency released a key document that websites and mobile apps directed to children will need to consult in order to become compliant by July 1.
The Federal Trade Commission is getting quite an earful over the pending July 1 implementation date for the updates to the children's online privacy laws.
Path, a social networking app, agreed to settle privacy charges with the Federal Trade Commission that it collected personal information from users' mobile address books without their knowledge or consent.
