Ganz’s Ad Policy claims parents can opt their children out of seeing third-party ads on Webkinz. But in direct contradiction to that claim, Ganz continues to expose children to third-party advertising even after parents opt out.
Ganz’s practice of installing cookies on children’s computers to track their activities and serve kids targeted ads without affirmative parental consent constitutes an unfair trade practice.
