Who are the NSPCC
We are the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC). We are the UK's leading charity specialising in child protection and the prevention of cruelty to children. We have been protecting children from abuse for over 120 years.
We are the only children's charity in the UK with statutory powers enabling it to act to safeguard children at risk.

We may collect and process personal information about you. This may include your name and email address. If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence. We may ask you to complete surveys that we use for research purposes, although you do not have to respond to them.
We may ask you for information when you report a problem with Net Aware.
We may also collect details of your visits to Net Aware, including but not limited to traffic data, location data, weblogs, and other communication data and the resources that you access.

- To allow you to participate in interactive features on our site, when you choose to do so, for example, we may help you complete forms by inserting your contact details for you to edit.
- To analyse and improve the services offered on our sites by providing you with the most user-friendly navigation experience we can for your computer or other internet device.
- With IP addresses, to identify your approximate location, block disruptive use or to establish the number of visits to the site from different countries.
