- Where you are going to be, or usually hang out (Mall, Park, etc.)
- Where your parents work
- Landmarks around your house (I live by...)
- Similar information about friends or family
- Never agree to meet & greet offline - period.
- If you receive an E-mail from someone you do not know, don't open it - ask a trusted adult for help.
- Never fill out membership forms without your parents or the lab supervisor's permission.
- Chat rooms are like shouting on the Internet. Even if you are talking with someone you know from school, others are watching and listening, so don't use personal information or discuss specific plans on the Internet.
- Be Respectful and polite. The Internet is a community much like your neighborhood. Don't be mean or rude on the Internet.
