APPROPRIATE USE OF TECHNOLOGY:
BGCA has developed policies to ensure the safe and appropriate use of technology in Clubhouses, including computers, mobile technology and social media. Resources, trainings and activities are tailored for various audiences and age ranges, including kids, tweens, teens and adult staff members. Additionally, BGCA provides Clubs with digital use policy templates to help Clubs create their own local policies.

Internet Safety
HBGC is in compliance with CIPA (Childrens Internet Protection Act) Our system provide web content filtering and application control, as well as security measures for data privacy.
CIPA Compliance relates to the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA), a federal law enacted by Congress to address concerns about access to offensive content over the Internet on school and library computers.
CIPA imposes certain types of requirements on any school or library that receives funding for Internet access or internal connections from the E-Rate program – a program that makes certain communications technology more affordable for eligible schools and libraries. In early 2001, the FCC issued rules for CIPA compliance. More recently, Congress enacted additional protections for children using the Internet.
