The Commission proposes to amend the Children's Online Privacy Protection Rule (``COPPA Rule'' or ``Rule''), consistent with the requirements of the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act to respond to changes in online technology, including in the mobile marketplace, and, where appropriate, to streamline the Rule. After extensive consideration of public input, the Commission proposes to modify certain of the Rule's definitions, and to update the requirements set forth in the notice, parental consent, confidentiality and security, and safe harbor provisions. In addition, the Commission proposes adding a new provision addressing data retention and deletion.
