Date: 5th February 2013

On 5th February, Safer Internet Day 2013, the Commission presented the results of joint work of media, technology, telecoms and online companies undertaken since their December 2011 commitment to make the internet a better and safer place for kids.

Safer Internet Day 2013 is the tenth edition of the event and the theme for the day is 'Online rights and responsibilities'. 29 leading companies involved in the self-regulatory exercise have reported on how they will collectively set a new benchmark for child protection online.

The industry is also working to ensure that parents are aware of, and make use of, these tools. In addition, best practices have been established in terms of age-appropriate privacy settings and effective take down of child abuse material.
