"Young people need guidance on how to protect their personal privacy. More and more gadgets and toys offer the option of going online - even traditional stuffed animals now come with codes that allow kids to register online and play with other kids! And young people are embracing this technology, going online to connect with friends and make new ones, to buy products, listen to music, watch videos, play games, learn - the list could go on and on. The following information is intended as a guide to address important data privacy issues that relate especially to youth. Each section starts with an important privacy issue and then offers ideas for generating discussion about that issue."
