YouTube Has To Pay US$170 Million Penalty for Collecting Personal Information Data on Children

Google, which is owned by Alphabet Inc, and its YouTube video service will pay US$170 million to settle allegations that it broke federal law by collecting personal information about children, the Federal Trade Commission said on Wednesday.

YouTube had been accused of tracking viewers of children’s channels using cookies without parental consent and using those cookies to deliver million of dollars in targeted advertisements to those viewers. Google declined comment when this settlement leaked last week.
