FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION UPDATES: FTC Declines to Extend COPPA Changes’ Effective Date 

The Federal Trade Commission has rejected requests by numerous agencies to delay the changes to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and announced the effective date will remain July 1.

The COPPA rules address the collection, use and disclosure of personal information for children under the age of 13 by websites and other online services, including credit unions that have websites and mobile banking applications.

In addition, the FTC issued an updated set of frequently asked questions designed to help website operators, mobile application developers, plug-ins and advertising networks operating on child-directed websites and online services prepare for upcoming changes to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Rule.
