MovieStarPlanet’s Head of Safety, Vernon Jones and Polish Community Manager will be attending the 7th International Conference
“Keeping Children and Young People Safe Online” in Warsaw, Poland on 18-19 September 2013.
MovieStarPlanet strongly believes that keeping children and young people safe online requires a collaborative effort from all industry groups. That is why our Head of Safety, Vernon Jones and our Polish Community Manager will be heading to Warsaw to participate in the 7th International Conference for “Keeping Children and Young People Safe Online”.
This conference will bring together over 500 leaders from the education sector, NGOs, law enforcement, government and industry to discuss a wide variety of issues regarding online safety including; privacy on social networking sites, managing online identity, educational strategies and emerging trends online.
Head of Safety Vernon Jones, “MovieStarPlanet is an extremely popular game in Europe and conferences like this enables us to establish valuable working relationship with key players in the industry. Online gaming is a very progressive field and we need to stay abreast of trends in order to keep one step ahead of our user base.”
The aim of this conference is to raise awareness of the new challenges and opportunities in fighting online threats and to help share best practice across different sectors. “I am so glad that our Polish Community Manager will be joining me at this conference.” Jones continued. “All staff members at MovieStarPlanet are committed to online safety and internal knowledge sharing is wonderfully valuable in the safety education process between staff.”
MovieStarPlanet’s safety features include utilising a combination of automated word filtering systems, user and parent engagement and live moderation throughout the game to be alerted to and monitor online behavior and content. We also purse and cultivate strong working relationships with law enforcement and NGO’s in each country we operate in to ensure we are taking the appropriate steps in keeping users safe while online.
MovieStarPlanet has already established positive third party relationships with NGOs throughout Europe. In Poland we work closely with the Nobody’s Children Foundation which is protecting children from abuse whether that be physical or online and in the Nordics we work with the relevant Save the Children organisations in each country. However, you can never do too much when it comes to keeping children safe and we are committed to ensuring we do everything we can to provide a safe and fun online environment from which children can enjoy playing MovieStarPlanet.
MovieStarPlanet can be played in 15 countries and 10 different languages. It is a fantastically fun online environment where tweens can be creative and expressive through making movies, designing clothes, decorating rooms and Artbooks and chatting with friends in a variety of safe online platforms.
