Pixalate Launches COPPA Compliance Toolkit for Child-Directed CTV Apps on Roku and Amazon Fire TV Stores

Pixalate | January 17, 2023

Pixalate, which is an analytics platform for fraud protection, privacy, and compliance for connected TV (CTV) and mobile advertising, has released a compliance toolkit for CTV to find and evaluate child-directed apps in the Roku and Amazon Fire TV app stores. The toolkit is designed to enable Pixalate's customers to identify, review, and assess child-directed apps that run on Roku and Amazon Fire TV in order to ensure compliance with relevant laws such as the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). The Pixalate Trust and Safety Advisory Board, which is made up of qualified educators and led by a former FTC enforcer, looks at apps through the lens of the COPPA Rule to see if they are aimed at children. Pixalate's new toolkit gives brands, ad networks, and agencies the ability to accurately find and label apps that are made for kids. Allison Lefrak, Pixalate's senior vice president of public policy, advertising privacy, and COPPA compliance, said, "As advertisers are focusing more on programmatic Connected TV inventory, it is important for them to keep in mind that COPPA also applies in the CTV space." She further added, "Identifying which apps are child-directed and whether they are potentially risky from a COPPA compliance standpoint is crucial in avoiding hefty penalties." These manual reviews are blended with AI to assign a COPPA violation risk to over 50,000 Roku and Amazon Fire CTV apps. If a publisher or advertiser knows that a CTV app is aimed at children, they must follow COPPA, which includes getting permission from the child's parents before collecting and/or sharing personal information.

We work around the clock to protect your reputation and increase your media value.
