Is Parent/Guardian Involvement Required?
Is there social networking on this site?
Kidpreneurs must be signed in to access Kids Biz and their avatar + First Name & the initial of their last name only will be displayed. There is no functionality allowing photographic uploads on the wall at this stage and parents will be advised via email if this changes in the future.
The site is moderated and it is a condition of use that no personal details be provided for public access.
Is the Site Moderated?
Here are some reminders for kidpreneurs: Don’t post any information online which identifies who you are. E.g. phone number, full name, your home address, email address, web addresses, references to any other online profiles or pages you may have, the name of your school, or even sport clubs or other activities you participate in. The only place Club Kidpreneur will ask for some of these details is when you first sign up to the Club by filling out the registration form. We only ask for the absolutely necessary details and these are stored securely and not shared with anyone. Never share any of these details anywhere else on our site. Use an “undercover” codename as your username instead of your real name. Make sure your codename is not inappropriate, rude or offensive. Never share your password with anyone except your parents. Do not post any information online which could be rude, inappropriate, insulting, racist or offensive. If someone says or does something on this website or anywhere on the Internet that makes you feel uncomfortable, or if they ask for your personal information, stop talking to them and tell your parents right away. Never agree to get together with someone you “meet” online without first checking with your parents. If your parents agree to the meeting, be sure that it is in a public place and bring an adult with you. Do not post any pictures of yourself on the Club Kidpreneur website. You can post heaps of pictures of your business and your products, but make sure you or your friends and family are not in the photos. Always follow your family’s rules for Internet use
You and your kids can learn more about how to keep safe online at www.cybersmart.gov.au.
Child Security in Club Kidpreneur Programs
Where Club Kidpreneur’s programs are facilitated or run by individuals who are not registered mentors or volunteers with the Foundation (e.g. school teachers, childcare workers, parents, members of community organisations delivering the program to children in their care) Club Kidpreneur takes no responsibility for the qualification or vetting of these individuals. The organisation itself must adhere to its own child security policies and practices. However, reasonable care will be taken to ensure kidpreneurs are in a safe environment during all of our programs.
