Staying safe online a young person s contract
Staying Safe Online:http://www.wiredsafety.org/flashandvideo/YNK-Meangirls(G).swfA Young Person's Contract

1. I will ALWAYS tell a parent or another adult immediately, if something is confusing or seems scary or threatening.

2. I will NEVER give out my full name, real address, telephone number, school name or location, schedule, password, or other identifying information when I'm online. I will check with an adult for any exceptions.

3. I will NEVER have a face-to-face meeting with someone I've met online. In rare cases, my parents may decide it's OK, but if I do decide to meet a cyberpal, I will make sure we meet in a public place and that a parent or guardian is with me.

4. I will NEVER respond online to any messages that use bad words or words that are scary, threatening, or just feel weird. If I get that kind of message, I'll print it out and tell an adult immediately. The adult can then contact the online service or appropriate agency. If I'm uncomfortable in a live chat room, I will use the "ignore" button.

5. I will NEVER go into a new online area that is going to cost additional money without first asking permission from my parent or teacher.

6. I will NEVER send a picture over the Internet or via regular mail to anyone without my parent's permission.

7. I will NOT give out a credit card number online without a parent present.
