The Committee on Civil Liberties and computing (CLI) is an association that actively works to defend the right of personal data protection, raising awareness among citizens, companies and public administrations. The Association for Human Rights of Spain and the Federation of Associations for the Defence of Public Health are members of this committee. At this time, CLI is developing the project PROMETEO (project for children and adolescents to promote at school the use of ICT, and raising awareness on the protection of personal data). CLI has published three handbooks for children and adolescents with activities to enhance the safe use of internet which include
examples of cyber bullying (www.asociacioncli.es/?q=node/26).
There are also some foundations that are contributing to cope with cyberbullying. For example, the IBIT Foundation has launched campaigns on Internet safety aimed at parents, teachers and seniors, funded by the plan Avanza2 (mentioned before in this report). Besides, IBIT has carried out studies about the risks of Internet and mobile phones in children.
Actions developed by ICT companies
Although ICT companies are not
information related to it. For instance, Vodafone has signed a “code of conduct” with other mobile operators and a "Protocol of appropriate use of ICT", which we can find in its website (www.vodafone.es). They have also a section about bullying and harassment that includes a video on the prevention of harassment produced by the European Union and Protégeles. At last, Vodafone has collaborated in the design of the educational portal TeachToday (http://es.teachtoday.eu/).
Meanwhile, Microsoft through its website provides necessary information to children and parents about a safer use of internet and cyberbullying (www.microsoft.com/colombia/internetseguro/padres_cyberbulling.aspx). In its web, a cyber-pet helps the users to obtain the relevant information through the comic. They also offer a definition of cyberbullying and how to respond to cyberaggressors.
