Children’s Privacy: UK age-appropriate design code in full effect for online retail and social sharing as well as toys & edtech

After a 12-month grace period, the UK’s children’s design code requires compliance to protect by design and default if a user is, or is suspected to be a child (defined here as users under age 18). This applies to connected toys, games, and edtech as well as to online retail and other online services, including social and video sharing platforms.
