  • Teens, privacy and online security Mantelero © 2013 There is a wide debate among scholars focused on teenage behaviour in the online environment (e.g. Danah Boyd, Sandra Cortesi, Urs Gasser, Sonia Livingstone) Different studies demonstrated that teens share a wide range of information about themselves in the online environment, but teens also show an increased consciousness of the value of personal information and of the consequences of personal data sharing. The different approach adopted in this study: The study focuses on the aspects of online behaviour most related to regulatory profiles, namely online privacy and security Partner: CSP (Safetykids@school project)
  • Teens, privacy and online security Mantelero © 2013 Structure of the study Type of survey: pilot survey Geographical area: Piedmont (Italian North-west region, official population: 4.446.230) Period: May-June 2013 Structure: 35 questions, 7 sections First sample • Lower secondary schools students (“scuola secondaria di primo grado”) • Dimension of the sample: 435 students (respondent rate 96.1%) Second sample (stratified sample, two strata) • Upper secondary schools students (“scuola secondaria di secondo grado”) • Dimension of the sample: 1051 students (respondent rate 91.54%)
  • Teens, privacy and online security Mantelero © 2013 Key findings In the second sample, the results show that different educational backgrounds do not affect the online behaviour of teens. There are not relevant differences between students with a humanistic background and students with a technological of scientific background, also with regard to the technical aspects of online security The most used devices to interact online are still computers, nevertheless there is an increasing use of mobile connections and gaming consoles (among male students of Lower secondary school)

  • Teens, privacy and online security Mantelero © 2013 The nature of teens’ networks The social networks are mainly used to remain connected with family members and existing friends. The use of these network to make new friends is lower and decreases with the age of respondents. Use of SNs to remain connected with family members Relevance (blue = high, red = low, green = irrelevant) LSS 2nd yr USS 5th yr USS

  • Teens, privacy and online security Mantelero © 2013 How many friends do you have on Facebook? Use of SNs to remain connected with existing friends (green = 51-100, yellow = 101-200, dark green = 201-500, brown = >500) LSS 2nd yr USS 5th yr USS Legal implications: definition of the border between private and public life, disclosure of private facts, right to be forgotten
  • Teens, privacy and online security Mantelero © 2013 Awareness of persistent nature of online information The results shows that the awareness of the persistent nature of online information increases with the age of the respondents. Have you ever decided not to post something online because you were concerned that it might reflect badly on you in the future? (blue = yes, red = no, green = undecided) LSS 2nd yr USS 5th yr USS
  • Teens, privacy and online security Mantelero © 2013 Online safety A central role is played by parents and other members of the family in giving first information on online safety. The importance of these figures decreases with the age of the respondents, conversely teachers and media also play a more important role. (blue = parents, red /green = other family members, dark green = teachers, brown = media) LSS 2nd yr USS 5th yr USS
  • Teens, privacy and online security Mantelero © 2013 Data protection and notice-and- consent model The results of the survey confirm that the traditional model of notice-and-consent is going into crisis. The respondents are aware of privacy risks and of means of managing their own profiles, nevertheless they have low interest in reading privacy notices. They consider notices unclear, difficult to find or unnecessary. In many case, respondents give importance to the merely presence of privacy policies and to the reputation of service providers Legal implications: the role of new EU Proposal for a General Data Protection Regulation (simplified information in the form of standardised icons)
