SEATTLE (CBS) — If your child has ever bought something on an app without your permission – you may be in luck.

Amazon is now offering refunds to customers for in-app purchases – like upgrades for mobile games – made by children without their parents’ OK.

The Federal Trade Commission says emails have gone out to eligible consumers. The policy covers $70 million in charges between Nov. 2011 and May 2016.
