The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe and to protect and empower all EU citizens’ data privacy. GDPR-K is the portion of GDPR governing children’s privacy. GDPR-K requires apps or sites directed at children under 16 (or younger depending on the EU country) to obtain verifiable parental consent before collecting any personal information about the child.
