How to Protect Kids' Privacy Online: A Guide for Teachers
Date CapturedWednesday May 23, 2007 09:21 AM
Whether playing, shopping, studying or just surfing, today's kids are taking advantage of all that the web has to offer. But when it comes to their personal information, who's in charge? The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, enforced by the Federal Trade Commission, requires commercial website operators to get parental consent before collecting any personal information from kids under 13. COPPA allows teachers to act on behalf of a parent during school activities online, but does not require them to do so. That is, the law does not require teachers to make decisions about the collection of their students' personal information. Check to see whether your school district has a policy about disclosing student information. Here's a look at the basic provisions of the law and what they mean for you and your students.

This year’s conference continues the commitment between the United States and the European Union regarding the agreement concluded in 2000 on transfers of personal data from the European Union to the United States for commercial purposes. The EU’s Data Protection Directive, implemented in 1998, provides member states with the authority to block such transfers to countries whose privacy enforcement regime does not meet the directive’s requirements. Under the US-EU Safe Harbor Framework, the United States received an “adequacy” determination from the European Commission limited to those U.S. organizations that self-certified to Safe Harbor which allows data transfers to take place without prior approval.]
