Artist Arena, LLC agreed to settle charges by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) in a consent decree in which the company agreed to pay a $1 million penalty, delete the information it improperly collected, and link to an FTC publication about protecting children's privacy. The FTC stated Artist Arena registered 25,000 children without parental consent and kept information for another 75,000 children who started, but did not complete, the registration process for paid fan clubs and free fan online newsletters.
