MOSCOW, September 1 (RAPSI) - Russia's telecom regulator Roskomnadzor reported on Monday that over 2,500 websites were revealed for the last four months that provide data on children in violation of personal data protection legislation.

Roskomnadzor has started monitoring the Internet in May, and over 2,500 websites were found which provide personal data on children in violation of the law, the statement of the watchdog reads.

Over 800 warnings were sent to the administrations of education facilities which run blacklisted websites.

Open access to children’s personal data may lead to adverse consequences such as encroachment on the family’s privacy, and minors’ health and sexual integrity, the agency says.
