The Children’s Code (or Age Appropriate Design Code to give its formal title) is a data protection code of practice for online services, such as apps, online games, and web and social media sites, likely to be accessed by children.
It came into force on September 2, 2020 with a 12 month transition period to give organizations time to prepare. The code applies to UK-based companies and non-UK companies who process the personal data of UK children.
