The following are only the Rules published in the Federal Register after the published date of Title 16.
For a complete list of all Rules, Proposed Rules, and Notices view the Rulemaking tab.
The Commission amends the Children's Online Privacy Protection Rule (“COPPA Rule” or “Rule”), consistent with the requirements of the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, to clarify the scope of the Rule and strengthen its protections for children's personal information, in light of changes in online technology since the Rule went into effect in April 2000. The final amended Rule includes modifications to the definitions of operator, personal information, and Web site or online service directed to children. The amended Rule also updates the requirements set forth in the notice, parental consent, confidentiality and security, and safe harbor provisions, and adds a new provision addressing data retention and deletion.

§ 6501 - Definitions
The following are ALL rules, proposed rules, and notices (chronologically) published in the Federal Register relating to 16 CFR 312 after this date.
The Commission is proposing to further modify the proposed definitions of personal information, support for internal operations, and Web site or online service directed to children, that the FTC has proposed previously under its Rule implementing the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA Rule”), and further proposes to revise the Rule's definition of operator. These proposed revisions, which are based on the FTC's review of public comments and its enforcement experience, are intended to clarify the scope of the Rule and strengthen its protections for children's personal information. The Commission is not adopting any final amendments to the COPPA Rule at this time and continues to consider comments submitted in response to its Notice of Proposed Rulemaking issued in September 2011.
