The German Voluntary Self-Monitoring of Multimedia Service Providers (FSM e. V.) provides its information on the protection of minors and media education now also in English language. The newly translated version can be found at www.fsm.de/en.
The website not only targets companies and providers of online content, but also teachers, parents and the general public. The range of content includes German legal provisions of youth media protection and particularly the clear and comprehensible explanation of the 'Interstate Treaty on the Protection of Minors in the Media'' (Jugendmedienschutz-Staatsvertrag - JMStV), the requirements for providers, the work of the FSM Hotline (founding member of the INHOPE network) and media education projects of FSM.
The FSM website answers questions such as:
- What does a provider of online content need to know about the protection of minors in the media?
- How can providers determine the appropriate age level for their content? And how can providers make sure that children under the appropriate age are not exposed to this content?
- How can parents introduce their children to the internet safely?
- How can parents be competent partners for their children when it comes to surfing the Internet or using social networking sites?
- What is parental control software and who can use it?
- Where do I find current information and materials on media literacy in the family or at school?
