On June 27, the New Jersey Attorney General’s office announced a consent decree and injunction against 24x7digital LLC, a mobile app company, settling charges under the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). The company created a series of apps for children in preschool through second grade that encouraged children to provide their first and last names and photos for personal profiles. Under the settlement, the company agreed to stop collecting, using, and disclosing children’s personal information without verifiable parental consent. The company also agreed to provide direct notice to parents of the types of information it collects and what it does with that information.
