FTC Declines To Extend COPPA Changes' Effective Date
WASHINGTON (5/8/13)--The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has rejected requests by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and others to delay changes to the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and announced Tuesday the effective date is July 1, as originally scheduled.

The FTC said of its decision that the enhanced privacy protections now included in COPPA must be made available to children without delay, "especially in the face of rapid evolution in the ways children interact with the Internet."

The COPPA rules address the collection, use, and/or disclosure of personal information for children under 13 years old by websites and other online services, including credit unions that have websites and/or mobile banking applications. The recent changes aim to strengthen children's privacy protections and give parents greater control over the personal information that websites and online services may collect from their young children.

Also related to COPPA, the FTC late last month released a series of frequently asked questions (FAQs) that addresses the basics of the COPPA rule, as well as more specific concerns.
