Support the Do Not Track Kids Act
The Do Not Track Kids Act introduced by Senator Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Representative Joe Barton (R-Texas), as well as Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and Representative Bobby Rush (D-Ill.), would expand and enhance the current Children's Online Privacy Protection Act rules about the collection, use, and disclosure of children's information, including providing important rights and protections to teenagers and promoting safer connected devices.
What the Do Not Track Kids Act would do:
- Provide parents of children under 13 and teens with control and choice over online tracking.
- Empower parents of children under 13 and teens with the right to delete content they themselves post online.
- Prohibit personalized targeted marketing to children entirely, and prohibit such marketing to teens without their permission.
- Require children's and teens' connected devices to have a privacy dashboard on their packaging, explaining information-collection practices and security provisions.
- Prohibit sale of insecure connected devices to children and teens.
