The Federal Trade Commission, United States’ consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online.

Fair Information Practices
The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.
In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur we will:
- Contact our third-party processor(s) in order to put into place our data breach procedures and processes
- Inform affected individuals without undue delay about a breach when it is likely to result in a high risk to their rights and freedoms
- Inform the supervisory authority for our processing activities
- Notify the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) of a breach within 72 hours of becoming aware of it, even if we do not have all the details
- Put into place our process to assess the likely risk to individuals as a result of a breach
- We may also temporarily remove access to our service completely, in order to mitigate damage and protect sensitive data we hold
We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
