Everyone is trying to get into the mobile payments space—technology companies, device manufacturers, software developers, retailers, and financial institutions. News reports of Apple entering the mobile payments space with its next iPhone underscore the importance of this market segment.

As companies continue to innovate in the mobile space, the law has fallen behind. There are no laws specific to mobile payments, and existing consumer financial services laws and regulations are not always easily adapted to the unique challenges associated with the mobile channel. At the same time, the Federal Trade Commission, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and other federal regulators have begun to focus on whether consumers engaged in mobile payments are adequately protected. 

Please join us for a webinar as we provide an overview of the mobile payments landscape and highlight some of the legal challenges to providing financial services through mobile channels. Topics will include:

  • Mobile wallets, peer-to-peer payments, virtual currencies, and carrier billing products 
  • Special UDAAP considerations when using mobile devices to deliver financial products 
  • Safeguarding data and customer privacy for mobile transactions
  • Ensuring compliance with E-SIGN, EFTA, TCPA, CAN-SPAM, and other consumer financial protection laws and regulations 
  • AML and related concerns involving mobile payments 
  • Managing customer agreements on mobile platforms
  • Using text messaging and other mobile functionality for marketing campaigns
