In a new legal column by Berger Kahn attorney Kent Clayton, he highlights two new cybersecurity features in California: the “Eraser Button” and “Do Not Track” disclosure – new requirements of California’s Online Privacy Protection Act.
Says Kent about these new online protections:
“In today’s age of big data and our increasingly large “cyber footprints, ” recent legislative changes to California’s Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA) offer some new protections to users of all ages, especially minors, by requiring updates to both website and mobile app privacy policies with disclosures about how “Do Not Track” signals are handled and a new “eraser button” feature permitting users under the age of 18 to remove content and information posted by the minor. In addition, CalOPPA now also prohibits online marketing and advertising of certain products and services to anyone under age 18.”
