The age-gating clause in the DPDPA will be applicable to almost all organisations that will now make sure their customers are not minors
The new data law will mandate scores of companies including, telcos, banks and ecommerce to verify the age of minors through parental consent, according to a media report on Monday.
The law will not just be limited to social media platforms, but all companies will need to have age verification mechanisms, or else there will be no way to record the verifiable consent of users, the report added. The mandate will be high in cost and time-consuming, which is worrying all firms.
Technology and telecommunication lawyers who are being approached for guidance on the implementation of the Digital Personal Data Protection Act, 2023(DPDPA), have informed companies to read the finer details of the rule.
The age-gating clause in the DPDPA will be applicable to almost all organisations that will now make sure their customers are not minors.
DPDPA will demand that the personal data of children and persons with disabilities be processed only with the consent of their parents or lawful guardians.
