    As more of our daily activities take place online, and smart connected devices make their way into our lives and homes, Tim Loveridge talks to the Bailiwick’s Deputy Data Protection Commissioner, Rachel Masterton, about the digital footprint we leave behind. Rachel and Tim consider the importance of understanding what data is being collected and how to clear your history or update your privacy settings to restrict what you share.
  • UK ICO Children's Code resources: our UK counterpart, the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) have a number of useful resources related to The UK's Children’s code (or Age appropriate design code to give its formal title).
