Microsoft Must Pay US Government $20 Million Over Xbox Privacy Violations - GameSpot

Story Highlights:

Our proposed order makes it easier for parents to protect their children's privacy on Xbox, and limits what information Microsoft can collect and retain about kids," FTC Bureau of Consumer Protection boss Samuel Levine said.

Microsoft has been fined $20 million by the Federal Trade Commission for collecting personal information from children via Xbox, which the FTC says was done without consent from parents.

According to the US watchdog group, Microsoft failed to notify parents and has violated the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) in the process.
