Description

Adopted California Age-Appropriate Design Code Act (AB 2273) including data protection regulation

On 29 August 2022, the Age-Appropriate Design Code Act (AB 2273) was adopted by the Senate of California. The Bill requires every business providing products that will be likely accessed by children to comply with specified standards of design and transparency as regards privacy and terms of service information. Moreover, the Bill prohibits businesses providing products likely to be accessed by children from collecting or using personal data collected from children users. The Bill would also require such businesses to establish with reasonable certainty the age of their consumers and restrict the extent and type of personal information that can be collected, sold, shared, or retained about these users. Finally, the California Privacy Protection Agency shall establish the "California Children’s Data Protection Taskforce" to specify the best practices to apply the bill's provisions and identify the list of products that are likely to be accessed by children.
