Children’s Privacy: Video games must reboot to new UK guidelines

The UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has released new guidelines for video games to ensure they comply with the UK Children’s Code. Requirements include that companies must: 1) identify that if players are under 18, the game is not detrimental to them; 2) work to discourage false declarations of age; and 3) demonstrate that behavioral profiling for marketing purposes is switched off by default.
