Children & The Web is an essential event for any organisation reaching out to a young target audience through the internet and emerging media such as mobile devices, interactive television and interactive gaming.

Online interaction for social, entertainment and educational purposes is now part of daily routine for children from an increasingly young age. For organisations aiming to interact with children online this brings great opportunities and great risks.

Failing to appreciate the vast importance of protecting children online will lead to harsh fines and catastrophic reputational damage.

This event will give an in-depth analysis of current regulations from leading data protection lawyers. Our expert industry speakers will use their own experience to explain how your organisation can develop with children's data protection at its core so as to reap the commercial benefits of a safe, trusted service.

Topics will include:

- Online Tracking: Tracking Childrens’ Online Behaviour
