Protect children from unfair practices

If you are a parent or a legal guardian of a person under the age of 16, remember that when she or he uses the so-called information society services (provided electronically), e.g. social networks, applications or games, you decide on giving consent to the processing of his/her personal data. This is important, because children are often less aware of the risks and consequences of processing of their personal data. The GDPR indicates that special protection should be provided to them when their data is used for marketing purposes or for the creation of personal profiles. Pay attention to whether the messages addressed to them by the controller are formulated in a language that they can understand.
