On September 25th, 2022, California passed a new law—the California Age-Appropriate Design Code Act (CAADCA). It goes into effect on July 1st, 2024, but compliance may feel challenging for many.
Inspired by the UK Age-Appropriate Design Code, the CAADCA regulates the collection, storage, and processing of personal data of children under 18. Here’s everything you need to know about it.
Understanding the CAADCA
The CAADCA will regulate the collection, storage, processing, and transfer of children’s data. It expands upon the existing Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and California’s Parent Accountability and Child Protection Act.
