Children’s privacy online: legal & ethical responsibilities – 9th October – 4pm (BST)
In this webinar our panel will discuss the ICO’s draft Age Appropriate Design Code, the GDPR and other regulatory guidance. We will look at the duty organisations’ have to develop particular approaches to managing and protecting the personal data of children online and how far this duty should stretch.
The GDPR, explicitly identifies children as ‘vulnerable individuals’ who should be awarded ‘specific protection. The Regulation contains provisions which are intended to enhance the protection of children’s personal data.
The ICO’s draft Age Appropriate Design Code sets out sixteen standards for Information Society Services likely to be accessed by children. These include standards surrounding transparency, data minimisation, default settings, Data Protection Impact Assessments and more.
There’s been a degree of concern that a number of organisations who do not intend their services to be accessed by children will fall under the scope of the Code. The onus is placed on organisations to be able to demonstrate children are not likely to access their services, rather than just assuming they won’t.
Our webinar on 9th October at 4pm (BST) will be hosted by Robert Bond, a partner at Bristow LLP and DPN Chairman.
Robert will be joined by;
- Roberto Colizzi, Senior Counsel at Turner
- Professor Andy Phippen, Professor of Social Responsibility in IT, from Plymouth University
- Boris Radanovic, Engagement and Partnership Manager, South West Grid for Learning
- Debbie McElhill, Senior Associate at the Data Protection Consultancy, Opt-4
