Online privacy is about protecting your identify and personal information online. In the digital world, your data is highly valuable. It is often collected, sold, and analysed by big companies – including that of children and young people.

There are many layers of a child or young person's information that is of interest to other people and corporations, including their address, date of birth, gender, and telephone number. Furthermore, each time a child or young person visits a website, shops online, or uses social media, their data is being collected and they are leaving a digital trail behind.

For that reason, it’s important that both trusted adults and children understand how their online privacy and security may be compromised and the importance of keeping their personal information and data online as secure as possible.

This webinar is presented by broadcaster and online safety advocate Myleene Klass. Its content has been developed in collaboration with our expert Heather Cardwell, a practising online safety lead who is CEOP (Child Exploitation Online Protection) trained.
