Online friendships and relationships are formed through digital platforms or communicated on the internet.
Rules and limits that you set for yourself when using the internet or engaging with others online. Just like you have rules at home or school to keep you safe, online boundaries help keep you safe when you use the internet.
Right to Switch Off
Having the right to switch off means that you can choose to stop using the internet or any online platforms whenever you want. It's important to remember that you are in control of your online activities and that you can choose to take a break or disconnect from the internet if you feel uncomfortable or overwhelmed.
