1. What is personal information?

Personal information tells other people who you are and where to find you. Things like your name, address, school and what you look like. You should not share this kind of information with people you don’t know.

If you play games on a website you might be asked to log in. To do this you need to make up a ‘user name’. This name is also personal information.
