Everybody knows somebody that has had something happen to them online so it's important to know what your rights are when things go wrong.

If you, or someone you know, has experienced a problem online from bullying to someone sharing your images without your consent, it is important to know that it is not your fault. It may even be illegal under New Zealand law (even if you originally shared or made the images/video with someone else).

If you have experienced behaviour online that makes you uncomfortable, check out Netsafe for more info and make sure you reach out to someone you trust for support.
