Exploring Future-Generation Internet Privacy Governance Frameworks

Exploring Future-Generation Internet Privacy Governance Frameworks

Background

Many children are exposed to the digital world even before birth, starting with ultrasound photos, babbling videos, photos from their preschool life, travel tickets, elementary school class blog posts with text and images, junior high school graduation trip group photos, and captivating video clips of high school club performances. As children grow, these texts, images, and videos, along with their names, school uniforms, and life experiences, are recorded and uploaded to various social media platforms or video-sharing platforms. During their educational journey, children use email accounts and free online teaching services provided by commercial companies on campus. In their teenage years, to discuss current trends with peers, they provide personal information to register for various short-lived online services, with their focus on a plethora of short video content.

A significant amount of personal data belonging to children and teenagers is constantly being collected in the digital world. This includes not only data shared by parents but also personal information actively provided by children themselves, as well as various digital footprints left behind while browsing these online services. The most significant difference in internet data protection between children and adults is that they often lack a full understanding of the potential risks, consequences, or protective measures associated with sharing personal data. Additionally, due to their age or other limitations, they may not have the opportunity or means to express their thoughts and opinions.

This seminar aims to explore the issue of power imbalance between data collectors and children when they use various online services. It also seeks to address how to handle children’s personal data through mechanisms such as transparency and examine the current policies and implications of internet service providers regarding children’s personal information. Furthermore, the seminar will attempt to prioritize children’s interests in establishing a data governance or privacy framework that centers on children’s well-being.
