The Future of the COPPA Rule: An FTC Workshop will examine whether to update the COPPA Rule in light of evolving business practices in the online children’s marketplace, including the increased use of Internet of Things devices, social media, educational technology, and general audience platforms hosting third-party child-directed content. The COPPA Rule, which was enacted in 2000 and updated in 2013, requires certain Web site operators to obtain parental consent before collecting, using, or disclosing personal information from children under 13. Workshop topics will include:
- How the development of new technologies or business models, the evolving nature of privacy harms, and changes in the way parents and children use websites and online services, affect children’s privacy today;
- How the Rule should address parental consent for education technology vendors that collect personal information consented to by schools, following on discussions that occurred during the FTC’s Student Privacy and Ed Tech workshop in December 2017;
- Whether the Rule should include a specific exception to parental consent for audio files containing a child’s voice that website operators collect and then promptly delete;
- Whether the Rule should permit general audience platforms to rebut the presumption that all users of child-directed content are children, and if so, under what circumstances;
- Whether the revisions to the Rule made in 2013 have worked as intended or require modification; and
- Whether the Rule should be amended to better address websites and online services that do not include traditionally child-oriented activities, but that have large numbers of child users.

The 2-day workshop will introduce you to the EuroPriSe certification scheme: You will learn about EuroPriSe criteria and procedures and train how to specify a target of evaluation (ToE) and to apply the certification criteria in the field. In addition, you will start to work on an exercise to be completed after the workshop, which is one important precondition for being admitted as a EuroPriSe Expert.
The workshop is a combination of classroom and group work and involves practical examples. You will deal with privacy use cases to apply what you have learned and to benefit from the professional exchange with other workshop participants.
