The Data Protection Commission (DPC) has published three short guides for children on data protection and their rights under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The purpose of these guides is to explain in language that children can easily understand what data protection is and why it’s important, what data protection rights are and how to use them, and to give children practical advice on keeping their personal data safe in the digital environment. These guides are intended mainly for children aged 13 and over.
Protecting children’s personal data also means giving children the knowledge and tools they need to stay safe when they go online.With this in mind, we are sharing these guides with our pupils by publishing them on our school website so that more children will have the opportunity to read them and learn about their data protection rights.
