Abstract: In recent years, there has been a growing emphasis on protecting privacy in the global internet economy and innovation. Consequently, governments have implemented strict regulations on the issue. However, information society service providers (ISS providers) may approach this problem differently due to their unique service domains. Compliance with regulations such as the ICO code and COPPA may present challenges for operators due to technical difficulties and unclear guidelines. Unfortunately, these issues ultimately harm users, especially children. To address this problem, this note examines the key elements and regulations of the ICO code and analyzes the privacy policies for children issued by five major technology companies. The aim is to clarify existing protective measures and identify areas for improvement. Additionally, this note highlights the challenges ISS providers face when trying to identify children. The author’s objective is to provide a clear understanding of the current system for protecting children’s privacy, with the goal of improving the situation.
