AgeCheq 3 Delivers 'One Stop' Privacy Law Compliance for US and EU Publishers
'Compliance as a Service' Facilitates COPPA, GDPR, PECR for mobile apps, games and web sites
YORK, Pa., Feb. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, PrivacyCheq announces the worldwide availability of version 3.0 of its AgeCheq privacy compliance service. Since 2013, AgeCheq has assisted mobile app and game publishers' compliance with the U.S. Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). Today's major enhancement adds native language compliance with European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulation (PECR). AgeCheq 3.0 dramatically reduces the costs and friction of privacy compliance for both US and EU privacy regulations.
Mobile and web publishers intending to comply with worldwide privacy laws face a very complex landscape of different languages, parental identity methods and ages of consent. AgeCheq 3.0 provides an easily integrated compliance solution that handles applicable privacy regulations properly and in the correct language, depending on the user's country.
"With recent high profile child privacy breaches such as VTech and Sanrio, the ratification of GDPR in the European Union, and increased COPPA enforcement from the FTC in the U.S., it's clear that content publishers who ignore child privacy regulations or handle private data improperly will lose," said AgeCheq founder and CEO, Roy Smith. "AgeCheq is the only privacy enhancing technology that is optimized for the needs of global content publishers with hundreds of millions of worldwide users, offering analytics, real time control over compliance, and an optional encrypted PII storage service that eliminates the risk of a massive data breach."
Since the AgeCheq service is a single-sign-on 'common consent' system, recurring user notice and consent activity is streamlined to a few seconds in every session after initial account setup. Users can interact with their privacy dashboards in English, German, French and Spanish. Publishers have full control over user flow and 'look and feel', allowing privacy compliance to be fully integrated into games and apps for the best user experience.
The AgeCheq privacy compliance system has been built for extreme performance using the worldwide Amazon AWS cloud computing platform, and can reliably handle as many as one billion app starts per day. With SDKs for native iOS and Android, Unity, Cocos2D, ActionScript and HTML5, any game or website can achieve GDPR and COPPA compliance within a matter of hours. By adding a single line of code to their website, publishers can provide a responsive 'cookie notice', fully complying with PECR.
