This paper investigates children's perception of online privacy and data collection. An initial pilot study was carried out applying a participatory approach to a creativity workshop including 25 fourth-grader children between 10 and 11 years of age, from a primary school in Denmark. For most of the children the concept of privacy mainly concerned strangers not being able to find them. Furthermore, the results showed that the children experienced the concept as abstract, with many different meanings and relations. More studies on this topic are needed to establish design goals for developing tools for collecting ethically responsive data on children's actions in gameplay situations.
