Young Persons Safety On The Internet - Notes To Parents And Teachers
Prior to opening the young gardeners' club, my staff and I considered the whole question of safety on the Internet, for young people. Using a focus group comprising of parents, head teachers and young people, we have formed a basic code of principles that will govern how this particular section of this web site is used by GardenAdvice.co.uk, and the younger users.
The code covers these basic principles:
- We will never use a young person's surname in any content on any web site or paper-based newsletters.
- We will never disclose in whole or part a young person's address to a third party without express permission from the young person's parents or guardians.
- Membership details of the young gardeners will be held on a secure server with access only available to two senior staff members.
- We will require parental or guardian consent as part of the membership application procedure for members under 13 years of age.
