Cyber Saftey

*Note* Cyber safety is crucial to internet usage, this isnt real a rule or regulation, but is important enough to be in this section for people to read.

Public vs. Private.

You are entitled your privacy everywhere. Therefore you are not obliged to give out any personal infomation if asked.

Your privacy is yours alone and should NEVER be given to anyone on the internet unless you know know them in reality, and are 100% certain you can trust them, however there are limitations on this depending on your age.

anyone over 18 SHOULD follow the above instructions, and anyone below MUST follow them.

If you are under 18 you MUST always tell your parents about people you have met online and any information you have given out, never meet anyone you have met on the internet without a trusting adult around that you as a person are 100% certain you can trust.

Meeting people on the internet can be extremly dangerous, even adults are not immune to dangerous people who exploit the internent for their own gain.

for more information be sure to visite this site : Think U Know?

The moral being NEVER give out any personal information!

this includes:-

  • Real
  • Age
  • Date of Birth
  • Address
  • School or anyother place you visit.
  • ETC.

Remember you can trust know one.

Here are a few tips kindly given to Online Users by the Think U Know? Website.

Website : Think U Know?

  • It's best not to give out your personal details to online mates.

  • Personal stuff includes your messenger id, email address, mobile number and any pictures of you, your family or friends.

  • If you publish a picture or video online – anyone can change it or share it.

  • SPAM/ Junk email & texts: don’t believe it, reply to it or use it.

  • It’s not a good idea to open files that are from people you don’t know. You won’t know what they
    contain – it could be a virus, or worse – an inappropriate image or film.

  • It’s easier to get on with people online and say stuff you wouldn’t offline.

  • Some people lie online.

  • It’s better to keep online mates online. Don’t meet up with any strangers without an adult you trust.

  • Better to be uncool than unsafe!

  • It’s never too late to tell someone if something makes you feel uncomfortable.

  • There are people who can help. Report online child abuse, or find more advice and support.

As a bonus they have also highlighted a few points for perants to look out for on the internet.
