I'm a relatively new freelance web developer that's creating a site for a client that's geared solely towards children. I have read through the guidelines on how to comply with COPPA and I'm doing my best to comply, but feeling unsure if I'm doing things exactly right. I can't afford a lawyer (unless I passed the charge onto my client), so I'm not sure what to do.
I have a few questions:
- Is COPPA compliance an area where I (or my client) should really consult a lawyer? Or can I get away with just following the guidelines to the best of my ability.
- Is there a clause I can put in my contract that would protect me from being sued by my client in the case that my client is fined or sued?
