CARU Privacy Program

In January 2001, CARU's self-regulatory program became the first FTC-approved Safe Harbor under the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA). Participants who adhere to CARU's Guidelines are deemed in compliance with COPPA and essentially insulated from FTC enforcement action as long as they comply with program requirements. CARU Supporters who want to become part of the Safe Harbor program should contact Wayne Keeley, CARU’s Director, at 212-705-0112 or email
