The giant Google and its subsidiaries YouTube on search engines pay a record amount of sharing personal information collected illegally from children without parental consent.
A Google official agreed Wednesday to pay $ 170 million to settle the alleged illegal collection and sharing of data from children on YouTube video services without parental consent announced by the US government on Wednesday.
The agreement between the Federal Trade Commission and the New York State Attorney General is the largest amount in a case involving the 1998 Federal Law on Children's Online Privacy Act (COPPA).
"YouTube has become popular with promising business customers," said FTC Chairman Joe Simons.
"But in terms of compliance with the COPPA, the company didn't admit that part of the platform is aimed at children. There's no excuse for violating YouTube's law," he said.
President Donald Trump accused the U.S. government of “ very closely watching Google '' in early August, opposing the 2016 campaign and starting a re-election bid in 2020.
