August 31, 2019 Google would have agreed to pay a fine of between $ 150 and $ 200 million to terminate the procedure opened by the Ftc (the US Federal Trade Commission) against YouTube (Google's video platform) for breaking children's privacy policies .

The agreement, according to Politico, should be announced next week and could represent the highest fine ever imposed in the United States for violation of the Children Online Privacy Protection Rule.

The Ftc investigation concerns the collection, by Youtube, of data of minors without parental consent. The agreement on the sanction was approved by the FTC with 3 votes in favor (by the Republican representatives) and 2 votes against (by the democratic representatives) and should in any case be examined by the US Department of Justice.
