Why is sexting risky?
Sexting is when someone sends erotic photos/videos taken of himself/herself or sexually explicit text messages to a friend or acquaintance by mobile phone or over the internet.
What is the Internet Hotline?
The Internet Hotline is a legal advisory service. We help to quickly remove illegal content found around the Web based on reports.
When and how should we be contacted?
We accept reports in nine categories on this website and by email, even anonymously.
What do we do when we receive a report?
If the content reported is indeed illegal, we call on the editor of the publishing website or the operator of the server hosting the content to delete the parts concerned with the complaint.
Not an administrative procedure, but still effective
The Internet Hotline’s action is not an administrative procedure, but the high number of cases solved goes to show that our procedure is very effective.
