Recently if you've followed the news about Facebook, you should be slightly more aware of the dangers of children, teachers, and 'officials' giving all sorts of personal details to random companies online to do anything they like with it.
If you use services like Faceboook, and/or any other social media site, you MUST only disclose data on those sites that BELONG TO YOU. You MUST NOT disclose any data relating to other people that are not YOU!
For instance, you might come across a website that asks you to give details of all your training partners, or who are your immediate rivals. You CANNOT do that. That data isn't yours to give. It is the personal data of others.
Sites like Facebook and others provide facilities to tag images of people to identify who they are - you CANNOT DO THAT under the law, YOU MUST NOT DO THAT. Everyone has a right to privacy, it is unlawful to publish other peoples' data online without their consent.
This year, major changes to the regulations relating to data protection come into force in May, everyone should already comply with these regulations by now, but there are way too many people who don't.
Please read a comprehensive guide to the new regulations relating to data protection which has been written by the ESAA website host Joe Lee. The new regulations have extremely important new rules relating to people building profiles of children, which is exactly what sites like Facebook are doing - they cannot continue to do this, and YOU CANNOT give other peoples' data to them.
