California: "Right to be Forgotten" for Minors

On 23 September 2013, the US state California amended its the California Online Privacy Protection Act ("CalOPPA") to include a section titled “Privacy Rights for California Minors in the Digital World.”

Most significant, The revised CalOPPA introduces among others the following changes:

  • "Right to be forgotten" for minors:  An online company will be required to permit a registered user who is under 18 to remove content that he or she has posted to the company’s website or app.
  • No "adult" product advertising to minors:  Online companies will also be prohibited from advertising “adult” products to minors and from collecting, using or disclosing minors’ personal information for such advertising – or allowing others to do so.

With these revisions, CalOPPA moves from being purely a disclosure law to actually imposing substantive requirements on certain companies that do business online.
