Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is currently investigating Google for violations of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), stemming from the operation of its Google Education platform and related products and services. COPPA restricts websites and online services’ data practices pertaining to children under the age of thirteen. The law requires that online services clearly disclose their practices for data collection, use, and disclosure, and obtain parental consent prior to their implementation. An investigation by the New Mexico Office of the Attorney General found that Google, via Google Education, routinely violated COPPA in service of its own commercial interests. The Office promptly filed a lawsuit against Google on behalf of the State of New Mexico. Millions of children across the United States use Google Education products and services daily, putting their private data at risk of unlawful commercial exploitation.
