Date of Defense 2007-11-26 Availability unrestricted AbstractWith the increase of requesting personal information online, unauthorized disclosure of user privacy is a significant problem faced by today’s Internet. As a typical identity theft, phishing usually employs fraudulent emails and spoofed web sites to trick unsuspecting users into divulging their private information. Even legitimate web sites may collect private information from unsophisticated users such as children for commercial purposes without their parents’ consent. The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) of 1998 was enacted in reaction to the widespread collection of information from children and subsequent abuses identified by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
COPPA is aimed at protecting child’s privacy by requiring parental consent before collecting information from children under thirteen.
