What is wrong with It's Not Okay?
It's Not Okay is a campaign website against Child Sexual Exploitation by Project Phoneix.
The website includes advice for Children and Young People
This includes a Videos section with a video about how young people have been supported by Project Phoneix
The website uses the Youtube embedded player in Privacy Enhanced Mode
Childline do something similar and thus much of the nature of concerns on the NSPCC page about the suitability of YouTube and this mode of player are true here too.
For instance, the player includes unnecessary and identifiable analytics requests
Also, and more significantly, the player is a promotion to a child interested in Child Sexual Abuse Exploitation to go to YouTube at that point in time.
This poses similar risks as the "Stop It Now!" risks, where video content that might be suitable for most, might not be in the best interests of a child in this situation and the project does not know what YouTube will recommend to the child.
Who are It's Not Okay?
This is where it gets a little confusing, their legal notice includes an email contact that doesn't work and the project does not clearly state what legal entity is responsible.
The project appears to be supported by a combination of local governement and policing bodies in and around Manchester
