These guides can be found via the link below: 

Data Protection Guide for Children.


Data protection – what’s it all about?

This guide introduces children and young people to the idea of personal data and data protection, and why it’s important for them to know about it.

My data protection rights

Each of these short guides introduces children to a different data protection right and how to use it. These guides can be read together or separately.

Top tips for keeping your data safe online

This guide has fifteen useful tips to help children – and indeed everyone – keep their personal data safe when they go online.

The Data Protection Commission hopes that these guides will not only help children keep their data safe, but will also be useful to parents, educators and anyone interested in children’s safety and wellbeing online.
