ICO’s Sandbox Seers Report: Benefits of Consent Management Platform for Child Privacy

Seers was selected to participate in the Sandbox to mitigate risks and implement data protection by design into their product or service, ensuring that appropriate protections and safeguards are in place. 

In the Sandbox, Seers has been working to enhance its Consent Management Platform (CMP) to provide consent management for its clients in a way that respects children’s privacy.

Seers provide a privacy and consent management platform to help companies comply with UK data protection legislation (i.e. the UK General Data Protection Regulation and the Data Protection Act 2018). 

The Seers Child Privacy Consent Management Platform (CPCMP) feature enables children, or their parents or guardians dependent on their age, to provide informed consent to process personal data through cookies and operating scripts on the website they are visiting. Before allowing the end-user to access the website’s content, the CPCMP asks them to self-certify their age and then displays age-appropriate information about the cookies and scripts used on the client’s website. 

The CPCMP was created to assist clients in complying with the ICO’s Age Appropriate Design Code (AADC), often known as the Children’s Code, and ensuring that children are safer online. As a result, they applied for ICO’s Sandbox. 

Seers was accepted into the Sandbox on 6 November 2020, and completed its participation on 7th October 2021.

Seers is eyeing exponential growth as it has saved more than 50,000 companies from fines and is successfully managing 1.2bn+ consents all over the globe. 

The Seers Consent Management Platform provides consent in compliance with the UK GDPR and the AADC) to enhance children’s security and safety. Let Seers assist you in your journey towards children’s privacy compliance.
