Hi, what are you looking for?

Agenda and Reading List: Children and Privacy on the Internet; Dec 9 #Ad

We are getting ready for our discussion on Children and Privacy on the Internet next week. MediaNama is hosting this session online on Wednesday (Dec 9), with a curated and invite-only audience of policymakers, lawyers, businesses, technology, and researchers.

Registration is still open, you can apply to attend here.

The impending Personal Data Protection Bill, which carves out a governance framework specifically for children, is likely to cause a sea change in how online services for children operate. We will focus on the data privacy issues around children’s use of online services (educational apps, games, or streaming video), including the role of guardian data fiduciaries, implications of restriction on profiling of children’s data, implications of restrictions on age of consent.

Along with a broad agenda and sessions, we have a reading list below to get you up to speed. 


02:00 PM – 02:15 PM: Check-in
02:15 PM – 03:30 PM: Discussion on Children and Consent
03:30 PM – 04:45 PM: Discussion on regulation of Guardian Data Fiduciaries
