New Child safety protections with GDPR

The new EU laws taking effect on May 25th 2018 bring stronger protection for our children online. If you are a business or organization that collects data on children, for instance, children’s swim class registration, you should read about the huge consequences for your business.

We are already working with large multinational companies, banks, and IT vendors to help them to comply with the new laws. They all have their hands full when GDPR is enforced. What if you are a small business, social club or non-profit organization? Even in that case, your business or organization does not get exempt from the requirements for a parental consent

A high bar for lawful basis

The EU's new regulation for collecting, storing and processing of personal data greatly strengthens the protection of children below the age of 16. The biggest change is a high bar to prove that your company has the lawful basis for processing data about the child. For example, if you are offering an online registration for children to enroll into a soccer lesson, you will have to document and receive the guardians consent to process the children's personal data.

A new focus on social media

GDPR brings a new focus on giving kids more protection when it comes to using internet services such as social media networks. If your business, organization or association has any type of web based social interaction, a community site, a team website or similar, you also need to follow the tough new requirements of GDPR to avoid fines up to €20 million.

Full transparency with guardians and children

Your business or organization needs to ensure to have proper procedures in place to process personal information. Starting with creating or updating information you give to your users and members to processing any of the data you collected. GDPR law requires your business to inform all your members and users as to how their personal data will be used in clear and simple language, so that even children can understand.

What is the age cutoff to be considered a child?

According to the default in GDPR, everyone 16 years old and under is considered to be a child. Each EU country can choose to lower the age definition to as low as 13 years old. To avoid confusion and non-compliance we recommend to keep the age limit at 16.
