How we set up a file depends on the age of your child.
These are the guidelines we adhere to:
For children under 12 years of age, the file is set up in the name of your child and the authoritative parents receive the login details.
Giving information to parent/parents with the authority can only be refused if the interests of the child will be harmed or when the privacy of another person is impaired and this privacy interest weighs heavily.
For children between 12 and 16 years of age, the file is in the name of your child and, if desired, the login data may be shared with the authoritative parents. We discuss this with you and with your child. We take into account the independence (ability to estimate his/her own interests) of your child and the topic discussed. It is also possible to take part in the file as 'supporter:' (you will then see a limited portion of the file -- the plan of approach -- and you have the ability to send and to read group messages).
A child may object to access by parents. If the caregiver feels that the child is able to decide about this, he/she will not allow access to the parents if this is in the child's best interests.
For children 16 years of age and older, we create the file for the child. After you have your child's permission, the login data can be shared or you can as ‘supporter’ participate in the file.
