Hardly anyone could imagine the world of today without the use of Internet. The World Wide Web has turned into a self-sufficient environment for communication, work, business and entertainment. The age for young people going online is dropping by the day. However, Internet is also posing risks both for adults and for children. This is the reason why the European Commission has set up the Safer Internet Programme in 1999. The program and its tools aims at educating kids, teachers and parents and thus providing them with a safer, more useful and more pleasant cruise across the World Wide Web.
