The US state-of-the-art FTC recently drew attention to itself in headlines as it announced its plans to take over Activision Blizzard, but Epic Games also had contact with this and now these are becoming very expensive.

Epic Games settled a lawsuit with the Federal Act of the United States, but has agreed to a settlement, but this is literally a cost for the company. Due to the violation of the COPPA guidelines in Fortnite, the developer has to pay a whopping 520 million dollars, which means a hundred-fourths of refunds and penalties. It is the largest regulatory penalty ever introduced on gaming.

What is this about? The Childs Online Privacy Act of 1998 was behind the COPPA. There is mostly for protecting the privacy and privacy of children. Epic Games is just as successful in the long-running Fortnite game. Spicy: The violations have only been known until when Epic Games filed lawsuit against Apple from 2021; Due to this legal dispute between the two technology giants, the FTC has also studied the data protection and other practices at Epic Games and found what they’re looking for.

All the proceeds from the annual COPPA report will be reimbursed for 125 million dollars. According to the Federal Trade Commission, the vast supply of skins and cosmetics has already generated a million complaints from unintended buyers.

Lina M. Khan, whose mother-and-go fight against technology giants on the Activision-Microsoft deal, denounced the privacy-violating default settings and the deceptive user interface, with which Fortnite Players are sometimes misled, a group of children and teenagers. The FTC is always seeking such illegal practices to protect the end customers and, in particular, children.

According to the FTC, Epic Games collected personal information without the consent of parents in Fortnite. According to sources, the defaults were child chatting with strangers, also leading to sexual harassment and bullying. Parents who would have asked Epic Games to delete their children’s private data would have had to jump over unreasonably high hurdles to enforce this. Epic Games is now being sanctioned for all this.

The refund is due to a separate FTC process, not COPPA violations, and result of in-game purchases that customers could not make. Both proceedings were settled; Epic Chairman Tim Sweeney signed that on December 2.

Epic Games has published a statement in this regard and insists on the fact that Fortnite was transformed into a new project. The aim is to respond better and faster to customer complaints in the future, and to resolve the concerns about privacy and data protection. Even if you are under 13 years old, account creation is a way of being transparent. In this case, a e-mail address for a legal guardian must be approved and the use of Fortnite must be approved first.
