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 has now submitted the Age Appropriate Design Code to the Secretary of State. The Code gives the design standards we will expect providers of online services and apps used by children to meet when they process their data. It 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 the development of the Code we published a draft of the Code for consultation. We have now published the consultation responses (apart from any made by individuals acting in a private capacity) and our summary of the responses.

For more information about what we do with personal data please see our privacy notice.
