Analysis of Proposed Consent Order To Aid Public Comment The Federal Trade Commission (‘‘FTC’’ or ‘‘Commission’’) has accepted, subject to final approval, a consent agreement applicable to Fantage.com, Inc. (‘‘Fantage’’). The proposed consent order has been placed on the public record for thirty (30) days for receipt of comments by interested persons. Comments received during this period will become part of the public record. After thirty (30) days, the Commission will again review the agreement and the comments received, and will decide whether it should withdraw from the agreement and take appropriate action or make final the agreement’s proposed order. This matter concerns alleged false or misleading representations that Fantage made to consumers concerning its participation in the Safe Harbor privacy framework agreed upon by the U.S. and the European Union (‘‘EU’’) (‘‘U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework’’ or ‘‘Safe Harbor Framework’’). It is among several actions the Commission is bringing to enforce the promises that companies make when they certify that they participate in the Safe Harbor Framework. The Safe Harbor framework allows U.S. companies to transfer data outside the EU consistent with European law. To join the Safe Harbor framework, a company must self-certify to the U.S. Department of Commerce (‘‘Commerce’’) that it complies with a E:\FR\FM\19FEN1.SGM 19FEN1 EMCDONALD on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 33 / Wednesday, February 19, 2014 / Notices set of principles and related requirements that have been deemed by the European Commission as providing ‘‘adequate’’ privacy protection. These principles include notice, choice, onward transfer, security, data integrity, access, and enforcement. Commerce maintains a public Web site, www.export.gov/safeharbor, where it posts the names of companies that have self-certified to the Safe Harbor framework. The listing of companies indicates whether their self-certification is ‘‘current’’ or ‘‘not current.’’ Companies are required to re-certify every year in order to retain their status as ‘‘current’’ members of the Safe Harbor framework. Fantage developed and operates a massively multiplayer online roleplaying game directed at children ages 6–16. According to the Commission’s complaint, since June 2011, except for a one-month period from November to December 2013, Fantage set forth on its Web site, www.fantage.com, privacy policies and statements about its practices, including statements related to its participation in the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework. The Commission’s complaint alleges that Fantage falsely represented that it was a ‘‘current’’ participant in the U.S.EU Safe Harbor Framework when, in fact, from June 2012 until January 2014, Fantage was not a ‘‘current’’ participant in the Safe Harbor Framework. The Commission’s complaint alleges that in June 2011, Fantage submitted a Safe Harbor self-certification. Fantage did not renew its self-certification in June 2012 and Commerce subsequently updated Fantage’s status to ‘‘not current’’ on its public Web site. In January 2014, Fantage renewed its self-certification to the Safe Harbor Framework, and its status was changed to ‘‘current’’ on Commerce’s Web site. Part I of the proposed order prohibits Fantage from making misrepresentations about its membership in any privacy or security program sponsored by the government or any other self-regulatory or standard-setting organization, including, but not limited to, the U.S.EU Safe Harbor Framework. Parts II through VI of the proposed order are reporting and compliance provisions. Part II requires Fantage to retain documents relating to its compliance with the order for a fiveyear period. Part III requires dissemination of the order now and in the future to persons with responsibilities relating to the subject matter of the order. Part IV ensures notification to the FTC of changes in corporate status. Part V mandates that Fantage submit an initial compliance VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:15 Feb 18, 2014 Jkt 232001 report to the FTC, and make available to the FTC subsequent reports. Part VI is a provision ‘‘sunsetting’’ the order after twenty (20) years, with certain exceptions. The purpose of this analysis is to facilitate public comment on the proposed order. It is not intended to constitute an official interpretation of the proposed complaint or order or to modify the order’s terms in any way. Dated: February 12, 2014.

Analysis of Proposed Consent Order To Aid Public Comment

    The Federal Trade Commission (``FTC'' or ``Commission'') has 
accepted, subject to final approval, a consent agreement applicable to 
Fantage.com, Inc. (``Fantage'').
    The proposed consent order has been placed on the public record for 
thirty (30) days for receipt of comments by interested persons. 
Comments received during this period will become part of the public 
record. After thirty (30) days, the Commission will again review the 
agreement and the comments received, and will decide whether it should 
withdraw from the agreement and take appropriate action or make final 
the agreement's proposed order.
    This matter concerns alleged false or misleading representations 
that Fantage made to consumers concerning its participation in the Safe 
Harbor privacy framework agreed upon by the U.S. and the European Union 
(``EU'') (``U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework'' or ``Safe Harbor 
Framework''). It is among several actions the Commission is bringing to 
enforce the promises that companies make when they certify that they 
participate in the Safe Harbor Framework. The Safe Harbor framework 
allows U.S. companies to transfer data outside the EU consistent with 
European law. To join the Safe Harbor framework, a company must self-
certify to the U.S. Department of Commerce (``Commerce'') that it 
complies with a

[[Page 9467]]

set of principles and related requirements that have been deemed by the 
European Commission as providing ``adequate'' privacy protection. These 
principles include notice, choice, onward transfer, security, data 
integrity, access, and enforcement. Commerce maintains a public Web 
site, www.export.gov/safeharbor, where it posts the names of companies 
that have self-certified to the Safe Harbor framework. The listing of 
companies indicates whether their self-certification is ``current'' or 
``not current.'' Companies are required to re-certify every year in 
order to retain their status as ``current'' members of the Safe Harbor 
framework.
    Fantage developed and operates a massively multiplayer online role-
playing game directed at children ages 6-16. According to the 
Commission's complaint, since June 2011, except for a one-month period 
from November to December 2013, Fantage set forth on its Web site, 
www.fantage.com, privacy policies and statements about its practices, 
including statements related to its participation in the U.S.-EU Safe 
Harbor Framework.
    The Commission's complaint alleges that Fantage falsely represented 
that it was a ``current'' participant in the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor 
Framework when, in fact, from June 2012 until January 2014, Fantage was 
not a ``current'' participant in the Safe Harbor Framework. The 
Commission's complaint alleges that in June 2011, Fantage submitted a 
Safe Harbor self-certification. Fantage did not renew its self-
certification in June 2012 and Commerce subsequently updated Fantage's 
status to ``not current'' on its public Web site. In January 2014, 
Fantage renewed its self-certification to the Safe Harbor Framework, 
and its status was changed to ``current'' on Commerce's Web site.
    Part I of the proposed order prohibits Fantage from making 
misrepresentations about its membership in any privacy or security 
program sponsored by the government or any other self-regulatory or 
standard-setting organization, including, but not limited to, the U.S.-
EU Safe Harbor Framework.
    Parts II through VI of the proposed order are reporting and 
compliance provisions. Part II requires Fantage to retain documents 
relating to its compliance with the order for a five-year period. Part 
III requires dissemination of the order now and in the future to 
persons with responsibilities relating to the subject matter of the 
order. Part IV ensures notification to the FTC of changes in corporate 
status. Part V mandates that Fantage submit an initial compliance 
report to the FTC, and make available to the FTC subsequent reports. 
Part VI is a provision ``sunsetting'' the order after twenty (20) 
years, with certain exceptions.
    The purpose of this analysis is to facilitate public comment on the 
proposed order. It is not intended to constitute an official 
interpretation of the proposed complaint or order or to modify the 
order's terms in any way.

    By direction of the Commission.
