Guidelines for connecting you to safe surfing
- NEVER tell anyone you meet online your address, your telephone number or your school’s name
- NEVER send anyone your picture, credit card or bank details
- NEVER arrange to meet anyone without checking with your parent or carer. Make sure they go along with you to meet them.
- NEVER give your password to anyone – not even your best friend.
- NEVER stay in a chat room if someone says or writes something that worries you or makes you feel uncomfortable.
- Treat other people as you would like to be treated – don’t shout or get angry.
- Take care of younger children. Remember the library belongs to everyone, and that other people can see what you are looking at on the computer.
