Internet Complaint Office of "Deutschland sicher im Netz"
The Internet Complaint Office was affiliated by the initiative Deutschland sicher im Netz (Germany Safe on the Net). On 7 February 2007, the 'Safer Internet Day', a further commitment of actions was presented to the public. The initiative's aim is to save users from security problems and crime on the internet, to motivate a responsible use of IT and to strengthen the trust in technologies. The commitment to actions under does not only promise to provide an Internet Complaint Office but, above all, to publish its existence with internet users.
Legal prosecutions are often not possible due to an inability to track down the location of illegal content. The Internet Complaint Office cooperates with law enforcement agencies, with internet service providers and others partners worldwide in order to ban these contents and to convict the delinquents. Everyone can help to make the internet a safer place, but only a few people know about the possibility of making complaints confidentially.
