safety tips for your own web site
|Here are a few guidelines for
sharing information with other people while staying safe.
- Keep your last name, address, or
telephone number off your Web page and out of your e-mail.
Everyone has access to your Web site
once you make it. There are a lot of strange people in the
world and we only want them to visit your Web site and not in
person. This is the most important thing to remember. Many people
even choose nicknames for their Web sites.
- Be careful when e-mailing or chatting with people.
E-mail is a great way to talk to people without
giving out your address and telephone number. You can post your e-mail address on your Web site. If
somebody sends you something that makes you feel funny, it is very
important to tell an adult immediately. You should never give out
your street address or phone number on the web and you should never send
them to someone in the mail either.
- Ask for graphics, music, or text that isn't yours.
Viewing other Web sites can be a great
way to learn. If you find a graphic or music on somebody else's Web
site, it doesn't belong to you. You may either ask for the graphic
or go to the many "free" graphic sites and get what you
- Use your head!
If you ever think that you or somebody
else is doing something wrong, tell an adult immediately.
