Help children recognise and understand commercial activities
“The ad should be different from the content I am expecting.”
(Myra, 4 years old, USA)
- Label marketing clearly so children can not confuse it with information.
- Clearly state when actions in your product or service commit children to download content, or commit to exclusive use of your product.
- Confirm that children understand any purchases they can make before paying for them. Implement parental control for payments to reduce risks.
