INTERNET SAFETY PLEDGE
Print this page out and discuss it with your parent or guardian.
I will not give out personal information such as my address, telephone number, parents'/guardians' work address/telephone number or the name and location of my school without my parents'/guardians' permission.
I will tell an adult right away if I come across or receive any information that makes me feel uncomfortable.
I will always follow the rules of Internet sites, including those rules that are based on age of use, parental approval, knowledge and public laws.
I will never agree to get together with someone I "meet" online without first checking with my parents/guardians. If my parents/guardians agree to the meeting, I will be sure that it is in a public place and bring my parent or guardian along.
I will never send a person my picture or anything else without first checking with my parents/guardians.
I will talk with my parents/guardians so that we can set up rules for going online. We will decide upon the time of day that I can be online, the length of time I can be online and appropriate areas for me to visit. I will not access other areas or break these rules without their permission.
I will practice online "netiquette" (good manners) at all times when online.
- I will not spam others
- I will not bully nor will I tolerate bullying (and I will always tell a trusted adult if this is a problem)
- I will not use bad language
When writing email messages or online announcements, I will sign with my first name only, along with my group number or name and Council name.
I will be at least 13 years old and request parental permission before using social networks.
I will be guided by the Girl Scout Promise and Law in all that I do online.
