Congress enacted COPPA in 1998 to limit the collection of personally identifiable information from youngsters without their parents’ consent. The Commission’s Rule implementing COPPA, effective since April 2000, requires websites to post a complete privacy policy, notify parents directly about their information collection practices, and get verifiable parental consent before collecting personal information from their children – or sharing it with others.
