One in four Spaniards want to prohibit minors from accessing the internet

Half of network users say they do not have much information about data protection, according to the latest CIS report

    The Spanish are aware of the benefits and dangers of the Internet, especially for minors. One in four (27.3%) consulted by the Center for Sociological Research (CIS) believe that minors should have access to the network forbidden. In addition, 57.4% of respondents do not advocate to prevent young people from accessing websites but to have more restrictions due to the dangers that exist in the network. 36.3% believe that there is a danger that minors will broadcast photos and videos. The second most preoccupying issue is that they offer more information than necessary.

The report of the CIS also reflects the concern of Internet users for the use of the data they offer in different web pages. Almost half (47.7%) affirm that their data are used for commercial purposes and, in some cases, misused. 63% of Spaniards are convinced that a company with which they have no relationship has sent them an SMS or they have made a phone call. In addition, 37.8% never give their consent for the use of these data when they ask for it.

   However, users claim that there is little information, especially regarding their rights when providing personal data. Half of Spaniards consider themselves little or not informed about the risks that the proportion of personal data may entail (35% little informed and 15% not informed). Perhaps due to this lack of knowledge, 73.1% have never asked for their data to be deleted from the network.

On what information they would give, on several opinions 66.7% would give their nationality. Then, tastes and opinions (46.8%), hobbies (43.3%) or work history (27.7%) are placed. Regarding social networks, 61.1% believe that they should not change their privacy policies without the consent of users. 78.6% point out that personal data should not be communicated to third parties.
