Abstract

This paper aims to present an overview of the provisions about children and teenagers’ data protection laws worldwide in order to find out what are the best paths related to the subject or to identify if there are legislative models with safeguards, in theory, more beneficial. To achieve this goal, the authors analyze the legal data protection standards for children and teenagers’ in the United States of America, South Africa, Latin American (Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, Uruguay) and in the European Union. The conclusion is that, although there is no specific law that can serve as a paradigm for all others, there is a range of positive legal provisions adopted in all analyzed laws and that can serve as a parameter for legislative improvement worldwide.
