I invite you to join me in updating the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) by cosponsoring H.R. 5703, the PRotecting the Information of our Vulnerable Children and Youth Act (Kids PRIVCY Act). The Act will require opt-in consent for all individuals
under 18, create a protected class of “Young Consumers” ages 13-17 and ban companies from providing targeted advertisements to children. These updates are necessary because technology, tracking and data gathering have outpaced privacy protections. Companies
are taking advantage of gaps in the law to collect enormous amounts of data on our children and profit off their personal information.
