Senior cit­i­zens safe­ly online

A pratical guide

Increas­ing num­bers of elder­ly peo­ple are dis­cov­er­ing the inter­net and the new pos­si­bil­i­ties that it can offer them. This online guide explains the rules and con­ven­tions that apply there in a con­cise and under­stand­able way.

The online guide deals with top­ics such as data pro­tec­tion, free licens­es, social media and what to con­sid­er when deal­ing with copy­right. On the one hand, gen­er­al expla­na­tions are given in an eas­i­ly com­pre­hen­si­ble form; on the other hand, con­crete prac­ti­cal sce­nar­ios are played through using the exam­ple of the retired cou­ple Mr. and Mrs. Net­zbach. The aim is to pro­vide the nec­es­sary infor­ma­tion in a clear way so that the urge to explore the inter­net can be pur­sued with­out worry.

The online guide can be down­loaded here free of charge (PDF, approx. 8 MB, German).
