Mums and Kisses Keeping Children Safe
Mums and Kisses has always huge steps in Keeping Children Safe. The Federal Trade Commission made the COPPA – Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act effective April 21st, 2000 that prohibits any child under the age of 13 from opening, maintaining, or otherwise using an online account. This restriction stands even when parental permission is granted.
In 2018 the UK incorporated the GDPR into its national law through the Data Protection. Act 2018. And Coppa spread.
In 2021-2022 Senator Edward Markey D-MA, introduced Senate Bill S.1628 into congress on May 13, 2021 that will strengthen laws on websites that sell children’s items.
In December 2022 the Federal Trade Commission up the ante on websites requiring them to Keep Children Safe by allowing websites to register as “Kid Safe” with entities that verify websites.
Mums and Kisses has begun the registration process through IKEEPSAFE to ensure that our policies are more than covered.
We have always used an internal database to make sure that any information collect by our website remains in house. We never sell information. We at Mums and Kisses have children too and we never would want our children’s info exploited and therefore have always maintained a healthy database that is kept offline and away from hackers.
We are writing this post today to encourage all mum makers, suppliers, and Homecoming Mum Industry Professionals to also make big strides to keep their data safe. By making sure parental consent is made online, and making sure that data stays in house always. We encourage Mum Pros with websites to add children privacy, COPPA, related material to their privacy pages and together make sure our children stay safe.
