Know Your Rights – A Guide to Children’s European Rights to Online Privacy and Safety

After the successful launch of our Know Your Rights Guide last year, the Children’s Rights Alliance were delighted to have the opportunity to work with the Department of Foreign Affairs and the Communicating Europe Initiative to develop a guide for children and young people focused solely on their rights to online privacy and safety under EU law.

Once again, we worked with member organisations to ensure that the information in the Guide was relevant and responded to some of the main concerns and questions young people had around their rights in the online space. We would like to thank our members for their continued support for our Know Your Rights project.

Click on the link below to access and download the digital version of the guide.
