Home / GDPR
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has just been passed and looks like COPPA isn’t going to be the toughest rule to deal with anymore. The EU is taking it up a notch causing a good bit of alarm for companies that target or attract minors under the age of 16.
Organizations need to become familiar with the provisions of this regulation and start to plan necessary changes by the time the GDPR goes into effect in 2018.

What You Need to Know

  • Collecting information from any minor under the age of 16 will need parental consent. Individual Member states will be allowed to lower this age, but many of the 28 states are expected to retain the “under 16” age limit.
  • Violations for non-compliance could result in penalties up to 4% of the organizations worldwide revenue or 20 million Euros, whichever is greater.
  • Your organization must be compliant by 2018.

The countdown begins!

Don’t wait to the last minute to become compliant. Reach out to us if you are interested in learning more about PRIVO’s GDPR Readiness Review.
