ESRB Privacy Certified Seals
The ESRB Kids Privacy Certified seal applies if any part of a member's website or mobile app is directed to children under 13 (12 years and younger) or if a company has actual knowledge that it collects personal information from children under 13. U.S. federal law requires such products to comply with the requirements of the Children's Online Privacy Protection Rule (16 C.F.R. Part 312). The ESRB Kids Privacy Certified seal requirements may be modified as necessary to meet the requirements of the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), including the process of obtaining parental consent and implementing best practices for the management of in-game chat and chat rooms.
The ESRB Privacy Certified seal is for websites and mobile apps directed to users 13 and over. Compliance under COPPA is still required for these products in addition to giving special attention to compliance with an ever-growing number of U.S. (federal and state) and foreign laws and best practices. These include CAN-SPAM; PIPEDA (Canada); the EU cookie law; regulations pertaining to data breach preparedness and data storage practices; reconciliation of privacy policies with EULA or TOS; implementation of sweepstakes, contests, e-mail campaigns and newsletters; deployment of COPPA-compliant age gates; enhanced privacy disclosures for mobile, and others.
The ESRB EU Privacy Certified seal assures EU-based consumers that a member website is in compliance with the EU Data Protection Directive and cookie law when/if collecting personal information. In addition to assisting with the administration and submission of U.S. - EU Safe Harbor certification applications to the Department of Commerce, we ensure that privacy policies meet the strict requirements of the EU Directive and cookie law.
