Ensures REGO’s Compliance with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation
REGO’s GDPRkids™ Trustmark joins REGO’s COPPA Safe Harbor certification with PRIVO, which is a Federal Trade Commission approved designation certifying that REGO is protecting children while allowing them to engage in today’s digital world. The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) was enacted in 1998 in the U.S. and remains the nationwide standard for children’s privacy protection in the United States.
“REGO has gone to great lengths to ensure that they are handling child privacy compliantly and are meeting the highest standards to deliver an age-appropriate safe environment for kids,” notes Denise G. Tayloe, PRIVO’s co-founder and CEO. “We are delighted to have them in our Kids Privacy Assured Program and look forward to continuing to build on their good work as they develop their experiences for children,” added Tayloe.
“For REGO to achieve this compliance required a stringent and comprehensive review of its data security and data privacy practices, and is accredited to the company’s focus on children, as the platform was built with this type of security and privacy in mind since inception,” said Suzanne E. Kecmer, investment banking lead for REGO and founder of SKB Capital. “Strategically, REGO will be a strong global partner to any institution seeking to build a family wallet capability, especially financial and social media-based institutions. In addition, this compliance underscores that REGO is postured to address any further adoption of more stringent policy development for minors in the United States, such as the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).”
The platform is a secure mobile banking solution for families. It allows children to shop from parent-approved retailers, deliver peer-to-peer payments, teaches financial literacy, all while keeping identities safe.
REGO Digital Wallet is an unprecedented platform focused on families’ digital safety. It has patented attribution and identity management methods, patented real-time access and data control, and independent verification, validation, and auditing techniques, among other core capabilities.
PRIVO is an independent organization committed to safeguarding children’s personal information collected online. In order to obtain PRIVO Trustmarks, REGO is assessed on an ongoing basis to ensure it meets all requirements for privacy and identity management.
