Almost all activities that involve young people nowdays have a virtual and online dimensions. That also applies to the youth work that civil society organizations are performing in order to promote the rights of the youth. Participants and activists of their activities should feel safe and free in the space that youth organizations are offering to them. In order to provide that feeling we should focus more on protecting their rights and among them their data and privacy. But, how are youth organizations doing this today?
