New Digital Privacy Rights for Minors in California -Friday, February 13, 2015
As of January 1, 2015, a new California law grants several new privacy protections to California minors. See Bus & P C §§22580–22582. Most notably, one new provision (called the "Eraser Law") requires an operator of an Internet website or mobile app to permit a minor who is a registered user of the operator's website or app to remove (or to request and obtain removal of) content or information posted by the minor, with certain exceptions. Operators are also required to provide notice to minors of their right to remove content or information as specified.
