With a career centered on the creation of new technologies and markets that often disrupted existing industry incumbents, Roy Smith founded AgeCheq in 2013 after studying The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) from a developer perspective. Roy recognized that COPPA forces app developers to do many things that they are not good at, such as parental verification and permission, and it was clear to him that someone needed to build a central service to aggregate these functions for all app developers. With deep experience in gaming and app developer tools, Roy founded AgeCheq to meet this growing market need.
AgeCheq leads the industry with innovative technology solutions covering the intersection of privacy and mobile devices. The company delivers cloud-based privacy disclosure, regulatory compliance and management services to mobile app and game publishers and web site operators. As the mobile industry’s premier CaaS (compliance as a service) provider, AgeCheq’s patent pending COPPA service fulfills the need for a single sign-on “common consent mechanism” that streamlines compliance for both parents and publishers. Its cloud-based PrivacyCheq service delivers Regulation P and CalOPPA compliant privacy notices to mobile users on any device or operating system. For more information visit http://www.AgeCheq.com.
