Internet Use Policy
Remember:

  1. Never meet in person with anyone you don't already know. People are often not who they say they are.
  2. Do not fill out any "fun" questionnaires that are forwarded to you, even if they're from your friends.
  3. Know everyone on your "friends" list.
  4. There's no such thing as "private" on the Internet. People can keep what you post forever.
  5. Do not answer e-mails or IMs from people you don't know.
  6. Be careful about posting pictures of yourself or other people.
  7. Do not download content without your parents' permission.
  8. Never share your password with anyone but your parents.
