Find a Question:
Facebook and Snap Chat violate age-related rules DPA
Companies like include Facebook and Snap Chat breached the Data Protection Act by not asking whether registrants under 16 have parental consent to create an account when the law prescribes it.
This is shown by research from Yahoo! News. Arnoud Engelfriet, consultant at ICT law opposes the new media that “the Data Protection Act is not written with the Internet age in mind.” and that “regulators but take little effort to take forward these violations.” Services like Facebook and Snap Chat hold a minimum of 13 years for their registrants. This is an age that is valid in most of the world, but not in the Netherlands, as can be read in article 5 of the Data Protection Act. The law has been in force since the year 2001.
