2 What is COPPA? The Childrens Online Privacy Protection Act went into effect in 1998 to protect children 13-under as they used the Internet COPPA monitors what information is collected from kids, and stored and or shared with 3 rd parties. It also dictates that publishers positively ID parents and gain their permission before collecting any information from kids. COPPA has been aggressively enforced Since 2008, Mobile apps have become the dominant delivery system for entertainment and games Smartphones and tablet apps present a new and complex set of privacy issues

3 COPPA 2.0 is here Revised in 2012, in force July 1, 2013 Addresses explosive growth of online data collection, behavioral marketing, and ubiquitous use of tablets, smartphones and other mobile devices by children Puts legal responsibilities on app and game developers to obtain verifiable parental approval for kids app usage No marquee prosecutions yet, but its just a matter of time For publishers, ignorance of COPPA is not a viable strategy

4 Whats the best solution? Positive parental ID, disclosure, and app approval are new friction points that could reduce game play and limit monetization If every publisher creates their own verification system, parents will quickly tire of confirming their identity again and again The industry needs a single, highly optimized system that manages COPPA compliance for both publishers and parents
