When children can master a tablet before they learn to ride a bike, then the websites and apps they use must be designed with consideration of their rights and needs built in.
The Information Commissioner is currently calling for evidence and views on the Age Appropriate Design Code. The Commissioner will use the evidence gathered to inform further work in developing the content of the Code.
The Age appropriate design code will provide clarity on the design standards that the Commissioner will expect providers of online services accessed by children, which process their personal data, to meet. The Commissioner will take account the provisions in the Code when exercising her enforcement powers under the Data Protection Act 2018 and other regulatory functions.
