Office for Personal Data Protection
on the occasion of the “Personal Data Protection Day” – January 28, 2010


the 4th year of the competition for children and youth

in age categories from 7 to 11 years and from 12 to 18 years

“My privacy! Don't look, don’t poke about!“

The experience obtained during the previous three years of the competition shows that privacy is often important also for children, and especially for young people. For every one of us, personal data are key to our privacy. The Office is obliged to provide for their protection by those numerous institutions that maintain our data. However, it is necessary that we also learn to protect our personal data ourselves, wherever possible.

Since we are aware that children and young people spend a lot of time on the Internet and often provide information they would never tell even their best friends, we would like to offer them mutual cooperation in protection of their privacy and personal data:

Create your own guard to help you! This is not a bodyguard to protect your body, but a “privacyguard" who will help you protect your personal data and privacy.

Do you ask how? This is a small character, figure or any creature that you create as an animated GIF for your computer. Taking an existing GIF found on the Internet would constitute theft – and it would also no longer be only yours; so, please don’t do it. Your GIF will be reminding you on the screen of your computer that you should pay close attention to what you are communicating over the Internet. Indeed, what you reveal never disappears and can always be found by someone … Will you be happy if something that you say today is known in ten years time, when you might be looking for a job, wooing a lover, challenging your superior or having children browsing the Internet …?

Small children (up to 11 years), who might not be familiar enough with computers to be capable of creating a GIF, may draw an animal which they believe best protects their privacy; but write us why you think that the animal you chose is the best.

The winners of the individual categories will be selected by a professional jury and, early in June, they will be invited to Zlín to the International Film Festival for Children and Youth (children under 15 with their parents), where they will be ceremonially presented with their awards. Moreover, the author of the best privacy guard will be invited to take part in the children’s jury for the 50th edition of the festival.
