The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) gives parents control over what information websites can collect from their kids. Brokers and cell phone apps are not website operators and skirt the law. Information abut your child is being collected with and without your consent. Companies use this information to sell where you live, social media accounts, email and telephone numbers. Data brokers are a dominant group that often act with total disregard of any form of law or sense of morality.
