Children's Online Privacy and Data Protection

The Law Library of Congress is proud to present the report, Children's Online Privacy and Data Protection

This report surveys how selected countries from the European Union (EU) and the laws of the European Union (EU) itself provide privacy rights for children online. The EU introduced the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in 2016. As a regulation, the GDPR is directly applicable in all Member States, but most Member States have introduced legislation to ensure consistency and compliance with the GDPR in their domestic laws. France, Denmark Germany, Greece, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden, and the UK have introduced legislation that serves to implement or codify the GDPR in the country’s domestic legislation. (Apr. 2021)
