Personal information is anything that would allow us to identify you in some way, like your name, gender, sexuality, age or health. It could also be your IP address and the information you give when you sign up for a Childline account, like which region you live in.
Whenever you talk to Childline it’s confidential. But sometimes we might need to tell someone. We may do this if:
- you ask us to
- we believe your life or someone else’s life is in danger
- you're being hurt by someone in a position of trust who has access to other children like a teacher or police officer
- you tell us that you're seriously harming another person.
