Dailymotion has signed the European Safer Social Networking Principles and is actively involved in raising awareness of Internet risks amongst both children and their parents.
Also, in order to take an active role in raising children's awareness of Internet risks, Dailymotion sealed a partnership with the French association E-Enfance. Association E-Enfance aims to allow children and teenagers to makea safe use of new technologies of communication (Internet, mobile phone, network games). E-Enfance has also the role to advise parents so that they can exert an authority as "cyberparent". To this end, Dailymotion put on line "a code of conduct" in the form of a video carried out by E-Enfance in order to point out some essential principles regarding the use of the site. This video can be found below and on E-enfance dedicated page.
Complementary to that partnership, in the frames of a the european charter signed in February 2009, Dailymotion joined the safer internet programm - represented in France by "Internet Sans crainte" - in order to promote good and safer practices of the internet. A video on cyberbullying created by "Internet sans crainte" can be found below and on their dedicated page.

Some practical advice for young people: if you are under 18, and you regularly use Dailymotion, we ask you to carefully read the following information and advice.
-First, tell your parents if you create an account on Dailymotion. It is important to have their agreement, and to explain to them how you plan on using the site (to send or share videos, create groups, etc.)
-Never give your personal information to other users. You have the option of making information private in your account settings. Similarly, if your videos contain personal information or you do not want them to be public, consider making these videos "private" by using the "visibility" option in the video edit page. You can share private videos only people you want to.

Some tips for parents and teachers:
Dailymotion provides all the tools necessary to ensure a safe experience for its users, particularly minors. On Dailymotion, and on the Internet in general, it's important to be prudent just as it is in daily life.
We encourage parents to talk with their children about how they use Dailymotion, especially concerning the videos they watch, and what they upload and share with others. It is also important to make them aware of the various tools available to protect their personal information, to manage their contacts and communications on the site, and to immediately report any inappropriate content. You can refer to the advice given above aimed at younger users.
Our Support team, available 24/24 through the contact, treats all reported content quickly, and we also work closely with the relevant authorities. Dailymotion cooperates with bodies of child protection mentioned above, all of which have a dedicated space on the site.
Finally, keep in mind that as a parent, you can - if you deem it necessary - request that your child's account be closed by contacting our support team.
