FTC SEEKS COMMENTS ON PROPOSED REVISIONS TO CHILDREN’S ONLINE PRIVACY PROTECTION RULE

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is seeking public comments on proposed amendments to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Rule (the Rule), which gives parents control over what personal information websites may collect from children under 13 years of age.
