The UK’s independent authority set up to uphold information rights in the public interest, promoting openness by public bodies and data privacy for individuals.

The ICO is looking at the ways websites and apps use the information trail that children leave when they go online.

We’re producing an Age Appropriate Design Code, which gives the design standards we will expect providers of online services and apps used by children to meet when they process their data. The Code is a requirement of the Data Protection Act 2018 (the Act). The Act supports and supplements the implementation of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (the GDPR).

As part of this we asked organisations for their views. We have now published their responses and our summary of the responses.
