Children’s Privacy: TickTalk Tech agrees to terms to provide parents clear, transparent info on kid data it collects

TickTalk Tech has come to an agreement with the US BBB’s Children’s Advertising Review Unit (CARU), which works with brands to gain self-regulatory compliance. The smartwatch company, which had been found in violation of CARU standards for its privacy policy, has now agreed to: 1) clearly disclose data collection practices, 2) ensure the privacy policy is not hidden, 3) explain data retention and deletion practices, and 4) obtain verifiable consent from parents before collecting kids’ data. That’s good practice for any responsible, privacy-forward company to adhere to – and even better when done proactively in privacy by design.
