CR ratings: Child and youth protection

Depending on supply and technical distribution, Deutsche Telekom implements different youth protection functions to protect children from getting access to inappropriate content.
Deutsche Telekom offers the age verification system ID-Pass for specific content to guarantee that even adults only get access if a special Adult PIN is typed in correctly. The verification system is fully in line with legal requirements in Germany.
Amongst others, we ensure youth protection by being in compliance with legal requirements regarding age dependent transmission times of relevant content. Classified content over the age of 16 is available after 10pm, content over the age of 18 only after 11pm. Moreover, we label content with technical age markers that can be read by youth protection programs.
