The app, “AskMe! Your online safety friend (Opens in new tab)” is addressed to children aged 13 to 18. This webapp will act as a virtual friend, providing useful information and resources on key online safety issues in the format of interactive storylines and conversations. The goal is to provide children with a better understanding their rights online and to strengthen their skills to navigate the online world safely. Our core partners for this project are UNICEF and CyberTrust.
“You”, means the child using the app.
We aim to create an environment where any children feel comfortable, no matter their nationality, cultural background, gender, religion, sexual orientation or political conviction.
You must be at least 13 years old to create an account.
With this in mind, here are some rules of use we request our users to follow:
Keep your personal information safe.
Don’t create a username that is inappropriate or offensive.
Don’t share your password with anyone else.
You agree to provide us with information that is true, complete, up-to-date, and accurate.
You may not use the app to do anything:
You are responsible for keeping your password and your account secure. You are responsible for all uses of your account, even if your account is used by someone else.
If you have any reason to believe that your account is no longer secure – if your password has been stolen, for instance – you should change your password as soon as possible.
If you forget your password, you will have several attempts to remember it, however, if you cannot remember, you will have to create a new account to continue using the app.
If you create a new account, kindly note that you will not be able to retrieve your previous information associated with your other account.
We do not have access to your account and cannot change, retrieve or reset passwords.
You can delete your account on your own at any time or request your account to be deleted by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
