Disney is facing harsh questions for allegedly tracking kids personal information, according to a lawsuit filed last week in federal court.

The lawsuit filed by a mother and her child claims that ad-tracking software embedded in a mobile game called Disney Princess Palace Pets illegally gets the information of the users and then offers the acquired information to the third party.

Ad-tracking software is common in phone’s operating systems, but there are strict rules and regulations about the collection of data from kids under 13 years on the internet.

“based on a fundamental misunderstanding of COPPA principles.” said Disney’s spokesperson in his statement.

The lawsuit asks for damage figures to be determined at the court trial.
