WASHINGTON (Legal Newsline) — The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has announced, after a public comment period, it has approved a final order resolving its complaint against Very Incognito Technologies Inc., which does business as Vipvape.

The settlement, first announced in May, came after allegations Vipvape deceived consumers about its participation in the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Cross-Border Privacy Rules (CBPR) system. The FTC had charged the company represented on its website that it was a member of this program but it was not actually certified to participate.

Under the terms of the settlement, Vipvape cannot misrepresent its participation, membership or certification in any privacy or security program, whether its sponsored by a government, self-regulatory or standard-setting organization.

The FTC voted 3-0 to approve the final order.
