Call for evidence – Age Appropriate Design Code

The Information Commissioner (the Commissioner) is calling for evidence and views on the Age Appropriate Design Code (the Code).

The Code is a requirement of the Data Protection Act 2018 (the Act). The Act supports and supplements the implementation of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (the GDPR).

The Code will provide guidance on the design standards that the Commissioner will expect providers of online ‘Information Society Services’ (ISS), which process personal data and are likely to be accessed by children, to meet. Once it has been published, the Commissioner will be required to take account of any provisions of the Code she considers to be relevant when exercising her regulatory functions. The courts and tribunals will also be required to take account of any provisions they consider to be relevant in proceedings brought before them. The Code may be submitted as evidence in court proceedings.

Further guidance on how the GDPR applies to children’s personal data can be found in our guidance Children and the GDPR. It will be useful to read this before responding to the call for evidence, to understand what is already required by the GDPR and what the ICO currently recommends as best practice. In drafting the Code the ICO may consider suggestions that reinforce the specific requirements of the GDPR, or its overarching requirement that children merit special protection, but will disregard any suggestions that fall below this standard.

The FLASH Technique

This is an external event.

NEW! The flash technique has CHANGED. It  has been evolving over the past eight months, and now it is substantially different from what was originally described in the November, 2017 Journal article. Now, it is easier, faster and still as effective.

Also, the FORMAT OF THE WEBINAR HAS CHANGED! Our colleagues in EUROPE and ISRAEL have been asking for a webinar that they could participate in without staying up all night. The new morning format of two 3 hour webinars (July 11 and 12) will make that possible.

As always, if you can not arrange to participate in all or part of the webinar, you can view the video recording and receive ce credit. Now, you can also sign up early and watch the video from the previous webinar before participating in the next live one.
