Media Advisory: AgeCheq to Showcase COPPA Compliance Solution at GDC 2014

AgeCheq COPPA Compliance Ecosystem

Developers given golden opportunity to have their mobile games reviewed for COPPA compliance, have COPPA questions answered, and get expert advice for easing COPPA compliance pain points

YORK, Pa. – March 6, 2014 – MobilityWire – AgeCheq (www.agecheq.com) today announced it will be showcasing its platform that aids game developers in complying with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) at the 2014 Game Developers Conference (GDC), in San Francisco, California, March 17-21. AgeCheq will be found in the South Hall Expo at booth #133 at GDC, the world’s largest professionals-only game event, which attracts nearly 23,000 attendees, consisting of mobile game developers, programmers, and other individuals who play a role in game development.

GDC 2014 attendees can visit the AgeCheq booth to see a live demonstration of AgeCheq’s integrated cloud service and API solution which dramatically reduces the effort required to meet the new COPPA standards. The AgeCheq solution is a free service for developers which can be integrated into any iOS or Android game, tested for compliance and posted to the app store within a day.

Roy Smith, founder and CEO of AgeCheq, and a team of AgeCheq game specialists will be in attendance at GDC to answer developers’ questions about the recent COPPA revisions and how this newly updated law affects their mobile games.

During GDC, the AgeCheq team will meet with game developers to help them consider how COPPA should influence their games’ privacy and data storage practices. AgeCheq will also explain why so-called “Safe Harbor” certification programs do not provide full COPPA compliance. Developers are encouraged to take advantage of AgeCheq’s offer to educate them on the process of becoming COPPA compliant and avoiding potentially massive fines from the FTC.

For App and Game Publishers:
With AgeCheq, developers and publishers eliminate the cost and effort of creating their own COPPA compliance suite. AgeCheq delivers a complete solution to verify parents’ identities; provide them with simple-to-understand disclosure statements about the information each app collects, stores, and shares; and offers a streamlined parental “dashboard” showing approved apps and enabling parents to revoke approval. Native iOS, Android and HTML5 SDKs allow an existing app or game to be retrofitted for COPPA compliance, tested, and updated to the app store within one day.

For Parents:
AgeCheq provides parents a central location to easily see and then approve or disapprove of what is going on behind the scenes within the mobile apps their children use. As the industry’s de-facto parental supervision portal for mobile apps, AgeCheq obviates the need for parents to go through multiple ID verifications or learn different ways to approve apps for their kids. Parents set up an AgeCheq account only once, and from there AgeCheq handles all COPPA parental interaction, giving parents complete transparency into what information each app is capturing and storing, before a child uses it. The AgeCheq logo on an app tells parents who care about their kids’ privacy that they’ll be able to easily see and manage their child’s use of the app. Parents who wish to sign up for AgeCheq can learn more and join the waiting list at http://www.agecheq.com/parents.

AgeCheq offers app and game developers COPPA compliance with minimal effort and no cost. Publishers interested in becoming COPPA compliant tomorrow can sign up today at http://www.agecheq.com/developers.
