FTC Seeks Comment on Verifiable Consent Method
CHILDREN’S PRIVACY—U.S.September 13, 2013
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is seeking public comment on a proposed verifiable consent method submitted by Imperium, according to an agency press release. Under a provision within the new Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act Rule, organizations may submit new verifiable consent methods for FTC approval. In addition to seeking comment, the FTC examines whether the method is already covered by existing methods and whether it will ensure the individual providing consent is the actual parent. The comment period will be open until October 9.
