Govt online policies for Australian students

Cloud Regulations for schools

Thursday 19th March 2015

Many schools now use Google Apps for Education, and other online services, on a regular basis for both curriculum and administrative functions.

However, the companies providing these services have a minimum age restriction for the use of their services – usually 13 years of age.

In the US the use of such services by children is governed by COPPA – the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act.

Are there any similar Australian Acts / Regulations / Guidelines for use of online services by children in this country?
