Understanding the Age Appropriate Design Code (Children’s Code)

Earlier this month the Information Commissioner’s Office organised a webinar about the Age Appropriate Design Code, or Children’s Code – a code of practice placing the best interests of children at the heart of online services.

The Children’s Code helps organisations to develop services that recognise children warrant special protection in how their personal data is used and came into force on the 2nd of September 2020 with a 12 month transition period.
