10 Rules to keep you safe and happy on the internet:

1) Never give out any personal information such as your full name, address, phone number, school name or parent's work.

2) Only use a computer when an adult is nearby. 

3) Tell an adult if you come across anything that makes you upset, scared or uncomfortable.

4) Never send a picture to anyone you don't know or haven’t met before.  If you are sending pictures to a good friend or relative, make sure your parents say it’s ok to send it. 

5) Never arrange to meet up with someone you meet on the internet, even if you feel you have become good friends and they seem really nice. 

6) Use a mixture of letters, numbers and symbols in any passwords you have, to make it hard to guess.  Never give your password to anyone except you parents.  

7) Don't download anything from the internet without asking a parent first.  It could be unsafe and damage the computer.

8) Do not engage with cyberbullies, tell a parent straight away if someone is being mean to you online, or making you feel uncomfortable.

9) Do not be a cyberbully.  Don't say mean and hurtful things to other.  Think of how you would feel if those words were said to you.

10) Do not buy anything online without your parent’s permission
