Three toymakers and a children’s TV broadcaster have been penalised after their sites were found to contain cookies and other tracking tech.

 

The New York attorney general said the four firms involved had agreed to pay penalties totalling $835,000 (£630,000) as a consequence.

The US prohibits websites targeted at under-13s from collecting personal information about them without permission from their parents.

An inquiry into other sites continues.
