Check out a few of our favorite moments with Claire:
@cquinnprivacy makes a great point. CCPA & GDPR frames it as rights held by the child. I would love #COPPA to reflect this understanding (which is also how the UN talks about children and the internet).— Sara Collins (@SNolanCollins) October 7, 2019
@cquinnprivacy builds on this by saying age gates don't work because children want to be on the internet and fundamentally, children should be on the internet. We just need to build an internet that recognizes their unique needs. #COPPAWorkshop— Sara Collins (@SNolanCollins) October 7, 2019
@cquinnprivacy (from a safe harbor) notes that not all safe harbors are created equal, & companies shouldn't be able to shop around for safe harbors that are less stringent. #COPPAworkshop— Amelia Vance (@ameliaivance) October 7, 2019
@cquinnprivacy - you don't need to collect more data to know that you have children on your app/website. There are plenty of other indicators besides asking for age to determine the age of your users. #COPPAWorkshop— Sara Collins (@SNolanCollins) October 7, 2019
