Typically, COPPA rules come into play for children-focused websites that seek to be more interactive for the child or seek contact information for follow-up e-mails or newsletters directed to the child (a child's e-mail address or screen name that reveals the child's e-mail address is considered personal information that if collected, must comply with COPPA). Good examples of websites that are COPPA-compliant are Disney's and Nickelodeon's (which are also compliant with California's separate online privacy rules). The COPPA Rule seeks to strike a balance between privacy of children's information and the effect on the ability to access content of their choice online.
