Safe Communications Endorses Representative Barton and Markey's New Child Privacy Legislation
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Nov. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Safe Communications, Inc. (Pink Sheets: SGTB.pk - NEWS), the leader in offering secure online experiences for young children, is pleased to announce its support of H.R.1895, the "Do Not Track Kids Act of 2011" sponsored by Representatives Joe Barton (R-TX) and Ed Markey (D-MA). Barton and Markey serve as Co-Chairmen of the Congressional Privacy Caucus. The pending legislation establishes clear rules regarding child privacy and requires verifiable parental consent. Under the new rule, the FTC would be instructed to place strict limitations on the use of childrens personal information. With over 5 million kids under the age of 10 on Facebook, children are exposed to outside exploitation and predators like never before.
Rep. Barton, acknowledged Safe Communications support and endorsement and said, "I am happy that Safe Communications is endorsing the "Do Not Track Kids Act of 2011". Danger on the Internet is just a click away and it is evident this company values protecting children from online predators. My friend Mr. Markey and I share this goal, which is the reason we introduced our bill. I am glad to have the support of Safe Communications and I look forward to their help in making sure our bill becomes law."
John Venners, President/CEO of Safe Communications stated, "We applaud Congressmen Barton and Markey for taking this bold step on behalf of our innocent children. It's vital that Congress acts immediately to address this growing problem. We certainly hope other providers and site operators, especially those in the social media, will get behind this important legislation and lend their support."
