#Kidtech Episode 10: Dona Fraser, Director of Children’s Advertising Review Unit (CARU)

Hosted in the Radio Waves building in New York –  the original home of Nikola Tesla – Dylan sits down with Dona Fraser, Director of CARU, the children’s arm of the advertising industry’s self-regulatory group.  

An experienced data privacy and entertainment lawyer, Dona talks through her background in music, the early days of COPPA (revealing which unsuspecting 90s pop stars were hit with the first ever $1 million dollar fines), the challenges of the FTC and her views on COPPA 2.0.

In light of the recent Tik Tok fines for collecting children’s personal data and the impact of GDPR-K, Dona and Dylan discuss the impact of technology on children: how parents are navigating it, what companies should be doing and how doing the right thing is not always the easy thing.
