Disney is denounced for tracking data of children with a mobile application

Disney was denounced for alleged illegal tracking of activity and personal data of children using the application for mobile phones “Disney Princess Palace Pets,” reported today the specialized media The Hollywood Reporter.

The plaintiff is Amanda Rushing, a mother who filed her complaint Thursday in a federal court in San Francisco, California.

According to the indictment, “Disney Princess Palace Pets” hides in its code a software that allows to collect personal data of the children who use this application.

The information obtained, according to the report of the complaint, can be sold to third parties to personalize their advertising and specifically address the children.

The complaint alleges that this practice is illegal because it is prohibited by the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), which prevents software developers from collecting data from children under the age of 13 if they do not have authorization from their parents.

Although Rushing focuses on the Disney Princess Palace Pets application, the complaint, which could lead to class action, points to others who also incorporate alleged illegal tracking tools such as “Beauty and the Beast: Perfect Match”, “Cars Lightening League “,” Frozen Free Fall “and” Moana Island Life “, among many others.
