Mary J. Hildebrand CIPP/US/E speaks to Compliance Week about the FTC’s request for information from nine social media companies and streaming services, including, Facebook, and YouTube, concerning their collection, use, and sale of users’ personal information and the impact of those practices on children and teens. “I think this inquiry is long overdue,” she says. “And I doubt it will be the last one. I’m hoping the information they collect might inform a national data privacy law.” Hildebrand warns companies working with the nine organizations singled out by the FTC that they, too, may be affected: “If you’re a company that deals directly with the named organizations, or companies that may share data with these companies, you should take note.”
