EL SEGUNDO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/08/13 -- Fuhu Inc., creators of the award-winning nabi tablets, announced today its participation in the TRUSTe Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) Safe Harbor program and is certified to display the TRUSTe Children's Privacy Seal, certifying that the company's business is compliant with the COPPA Rule and letting parents know that their kids' information is safe.
In addition, Fuhu is also the first tablet provider to partner with TRUSTe, the leading FTC-approved children's COPPA Safe Harbor certification provider, to help ensure COPPA compliance with a new category of devices: children's tablets.
"As the leader in providing kid-safe experiences and solutions, we are proud to be the first tablet made for kids to receive TRUSTe Children's Privacy Seal," said Jim Mitchell, CEO of Fuhu, Inc. "We have always prioritized children's safety and experience, and we are thrilled to partner with TRUSTe to help define new privacy procedures for the kids tablet category and protect children's privacy beyond apps and websites."
"Parents are deeply concerned about their children's safety online," said Chris Babel, CEO at TRUSTe. "With the TRUSTe Children's Privacy Seal, Fuhu, Inc. sends a clear signal to parents that they respect and protect their children's personal information. We look forward to working together in their continued efforts to make children's safety and privacy a priority, and create privacy policies and terms that are simple, safe and effective for parents."
The TRUSTe Children's Privacy Certification specifically applies to devices, websites and applications that are directly targeted toward children under the age of 13 and to general audience websites that knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. Children's Seal holders must abide by the requirements of the TRUSTe COPPA Safe Harbor Program, including ongoing site monitoring and privacy dispute resolution.
