FTC warns kids Web sites

Published on .

The Federal Trade Commission said it has sent e-mails to "scores'' of Web sites serving children, warning the sites may not be in compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act. The FTC said in a news release that while some sites didn't collect personally identifiable information, about half that did collect information had "substantial'' compliance problems. The law that took effect April 21 requires Web sites collecting kids data to get parental consent.
