COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)
When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation's consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online.
We do not specifically market to children under 13.
The Florida Information Protection Act of 2014 (FIPA) came into effect July 1, 2014, expanding Florida's existing data breach notification statute requirements for covered entities that acquire, use, store or maintain Floridian's personal information.
FIPA modified Florida's existing data breach notification law and applies to commercial and government entities.
Importantly, FIPA is an extraterritorial law, which means any company that acquires, uses, stores or maintains the personally identifiable information (PII) of Floridians must comply.
This means in the event of a security breach, FIPA will apply to any entity which the personal information of Floridians, regardless of the number of people or volume of data.
In addition to the reactive component of FIPA, covered entities must report data breaches, FIPA also has a proactive component that imposes obligations on covered entities regardless of whether they suffer a breach or not.
Each covered entity, governmental entity or third-party agent must take reasonable measures to protect and secure data personal information in electronic form.
Additionally, covered entities must take reasonable measures to dispose or arrange for the disposal of customer records containing PII. Such disposal must involve shredding, erasing or otherwise modifying the PII in the records to make it unreadable or undecipherable.
Third-parties who have been contracted to maintain, store or process personal information or security systems for covered entities have up to 10 days to report breaches to said entities.
Upon receiving notice of the breach, covered entities become responsible for providing the required notices within the stipulated 30-day period.
The third-party agent may notify affected individuals and the Attorney General on behalf of the covered entity, but the agent’s failure to provide proper notice is deemed a violation against the covered entity.
This is why vendor risk management is so important. As it turns out managing third-party and fourth-party risk is foundational to cybersecurity, ensuring business continuity and maintaining regulatory compliance.
A robust vendor risk management (VRM) program can help you comply with FIPA because you will understand your vendor risk profile and be able to mitigate cybersecurity risk rather than relying on incident response.
FIPA reduces the time period allowed for reporting a breach of security to 30 days, from 45 days under the previous Florida statute.
However, if a good cause is sent in writing to the Florida Department of Legal Affairs (i.e. the Florida Office of the Attorney General) within 30 days of determining a breach, FIPA authorizes the department to authorize an additional 15 days to provide notice.
Like any notice requirements, prompt coordination with law enforcement agencies is essential.
Additionally, law enforcement may delay required notices if they believe it could interfere with ongoing criminal investigations.
In the event of a breach involving 500 or more individuals, notice to affected individuals must be made as soon as practical and without unreasonable delay. Additionally, a notice of the particulars must be provided to the Department of Legal Affairs.
For breaches involving 1,000+ individuals, covered entities must send notices to nationwide consumer credit reporting agencies.
However, individual notice may not be required if the covered entity determines the breach has not and will not likely result in identity theft or financial harm to the affected individuals.
In this situation, covered entities need to provide written determination to the Department of Legal Affairs within 30 days of their decision to not notify affected individuals.
