Tips for children online 1. Never give out personal information : Personal information includes your name, the names of friends or family, your address, phone number, school name. It also includes pictures of yourself and your e-mail address. 2. Don't believe everything you read : You can't tell when a male pretends to be a female online or a 50 year old pretends to be a 12 year old online. People online may not send their own photographs either. Do not be fooled by pictures that your so-called online friends send you. 3. Passwords should be kept secret : Never tell anyone your password except your parents or guardians. Your password is for your own protection, giving strangers your password could be really harmful. If someone calls and says theyre with an online service or your Internet Service Provider and need your password, get their name and number and e-mail address. Call the service and ask if such a person works there and whether they allow employees to ask for passwords. 4. Use Netiquette : Be polite to others online just as you would offline. If someone treats you rudely or meanly - do not respond. Online bullies are just like offline ones -they WANT you to answer (don't give them the satisfaction). 5. Never open strange emails : Delete strange e-mails. DO NOT open e-mails from strangers. E-mails from strangers could contain malicious codes (Viruses, Worms, Trojans etc.) that would be harmful to your computer. If in doubt, ask your parents, guardian or another adult.

Tips for children online 6. It's okay to talk about what you view : While surfing the Internet, if you find something that you don't like, that makes you feel uncomfortable or scares you, turn off the computer and talk about it to an adult. 7. Take breaks : Give yourself a break; dont stay online for too long. Spend time with your family and friends off line. 8. Read website contracts : The contracts and user policies on websites are aimed at laying down guidelines for your use of the website. Read the same with your parents and ask them to explain the implications of those contracts to you. This will help you and your parents understand issues of safety on the Internet. 9. Copying is not cool : Do not copy things from websites to use for anything, unless you have the Webmasters permission. 10. Protect yourself : Never arrange to meet with someone you met online unless your parents go with you. If you are meeting them make sure it is in a public place and you are accompanied by your parents or a guardian. 11. Teach your Parents : Spend time teaching your parents about your online activities – show them your favorite sites let them watch you use the Internet. Keep them involved in your online activities. They may feel happy to know that you are secure while using the Internet. 12. Be careful : Some sites that offer free virus development kits actually cause harm to your computer by planting a virus in your computer. Never visit these sites and also discourage your friends from doing the same. Asian School of Cyber Laws.
1.I will not give out personal information such as my address, telephone number, parents' work address/telephone number, my photograph or the name and location of my school without my parents' permission. 2.I will tell my parents right away if I come across any information that makes me feel uncomfortable. It is not my fault if I get a message like that. 3.I will never agree to get together with someone I "meet" online without first checking with my parents. If my parents agree to the meeting, I will be sure that it is in a public place and take my mother or father along. 4.I will not respond to any emails that are mean or in any way make me feel uncomfortable. If I do receive such an email, I will tell my parents right away so that they can contact the online service. 5.I will talk to my parents so that we can set up rules for going online. We will decide upon the time of day that I can be online, the length of time I can be online, and appropriate websites for me to visit. I will not access other areas or break these rules.
