The Information Commisioners Office (ICO) is hosting a Children’s Code Risk Workshop on Thursday November 26 from 13.30 – 15.00.
On September 2, in the UK, the Age-Appropriate Design Code came into force, with a 12 month transition period.
This affects all online services used by children – including videogames.
According to the ICO, the code seeks to protect children within the digital world, not protect them from it.
The code sets out 15 standards of age appropriate design reflecting a risk-based approach. The focus is on providing default settings which ensures that children have the best possible access to online services whilst minimising data collection and use, by default.
It also ensures that children who choose to change their default settings get the right information, guidance and advice before they do so, and proper protection in how their data is used afterwards.
