Be safe online

• Tell anyone you meet on the internet your home address, your telephone number or your school name , unless your parent or carer specifically gives you permission.


• Never send anyone your picture, credit card or bank details, without first checking with your parent or carer.


• Never arrange to meet anyone unless your parent or carer goes with you and you meet in a public place. People you contact online are not always who they seem, even people who become pen friends or 'keypals.' People don't always tell the truth online, no one can see them.


• Never open attachments to e-mails unless they come from someone you already know and trust. They could contain viruses or other programs which would destroy all the information and software on your computer.


• Never respond to nasty or suggestive messages. Always tell your parent or carer. if you see rude pictures while online and report them to your Internet Service Provider.


• Always check with your parent or carer that it is ok to be in a chat room.


• Always keep your password to yourself, do not share it with anyone.


• Always be very careful in chat rooms. Even if a chat room says it is only for children, there's no way at the moment to tell if everyone there is really a child. It might be an adult or an older child trying to trick you.


• Always get out of a chat room if someone says or writes something which makes you feel uncomfortable ar worried. Make sure you tell your parent or carer.


• Always be yourself and do not pretend to be anyoune or anything you are not.


• Always stay away from sites that say they are for people over 18 only. The warnings are there to protect you. Adult sites can sometimes cost a lot move on your phone bill too.
