Subject: UKNM: Childrens Online Privacy Protection Act
From: Sam Michel
Date: Tue, 25 Apr 2000 18:07:24 +0100

Hiya Gang...

Anyone got any comments (our learned friends perhaps?) on the Childrens
Online Privacy Protection Act? I got an email from Excite saying something
about changing their email system to comply with it. The law is being
instituted by the Federal Trade Commission in the US.

I haven't read up on this, so please excuse any incorrect interpretations,
but this law means a site can't gather any information on a child under 13
without parental consent including setting a cookie on the child's machine.
I don't know if there's a way round this with a disclaimer, but it would
seem the consequences are far-reaching.

I may well have missed some nuance. Any comments? Anyone know how this
affects UK-based sites?
