Virtual Piggy Lets Kids Under 18 Safely Spend Money Online

This post is a part of our live coverage of FinovateEurope 2013.


Wrapping up FinovateEurope 2013, Virtual Piggy demonstrated how kids can use its online payment platform to safely make online purchases:
“Virtual Piggy is the first e-commerce solution that enables kids to manage and spend money within a parent-controlled environment. 
The technology delivers online security platforms designed for the under-18 age group in the global online market, and also enables online businesses the ability to function in a manner consistent with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and similar international children’s privacy laws. Virtual Piggy enables the U-18 audience to play, transact and socialize in a secure online environment guided by parental permission, oversight and control.”
