Fantage.com, a children's online entertainment company, is the latest to settle with the FTC on charges that it falsely claimed that it was currently a self-certified member of the U.S.-European Union Safe Harbor Framework. It is the 13th company this year to settle similar FTC charges. The proposed settlement prohibits the company from misrepresenting "the extent to which respondent is a member of, adheres to, complies with, is certified by, is endorsed by, or otherwise participates in any privacy or security program sponsored by the government or any other self-regulatory or standard-setting organization," including the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework.
