Voluntary Commitments

The FSM is setting standards in youth protection by working with its member companies to develop voluntary commitments for various areas of the online world. The function of a self-regulation organisation like the FSM is to breathe life into the prescribed legal framework on a practical level. If industry standards are developed in collaboration with these companies, this guarantees that youth protection will be both maintained and implemented in practice. The rules determined in these voluntary commitments are based on legal principles, though they also have the particular advantage that they can be adapted more quickly and flexibly to new trends and technologies.
