Privacy online and icons
This workshop looks at online privacy and how icons can educate young people. Last year we collected thousands of children’s drawings, cartoons and icons that illustrate important points from Privacy Policies. The icons are designed to help protect your personal information when you are on the internet. Drawings have been selected and we want to hear your views on whether these particular icons deliver the right message.
What are Privacy Policies?
Why are Privacy Policies important to me?
Privacy Policies are important to you, because you need to know what a company does with your personal information. It is important that you understand what your rights are. For example: whenever you are asked to fill in a form on a website, look for the box that you can tick or un-tick to show that you do not want the information to be used by anybody else for advertising products to you. By controlling where and how your personal information is used you are protecting your reputation and looking after your future image.
