Pledge for Students in Middle & High School

I, _________________________________________, agree to the following:

  • I will talk with my parents or guardian so that we can set-up rules for going online. We will decide when I may be online and for how long, with whom I can communicate online and appropriate Web sites for me to visit. I will not access other areas or break these rules without their permission.
  • I will never share personal information, such as my full name, address, telephone number, the name of my school or any other information that could help someone determine my actual identity. I also will not share personal information about my friends or family.
  • I will never download anything from anyone I don't know. I will check with my parents or guardian before downloading or installing software that could possibly hurt our computer or jeopardize my family's privacy.
  • I will never agree to get together with someone I meet online, and I will tell my parents or guardian if anyone online asks me to meet in person.
  • I will never send someone I meet online my picture or pictures of my friends or family.
  • I will not respond to any messages that are mean or in any way make me feel uncomfortable. If I do, I will tell my parents or guardian right away so they can contact the Internet service provider. In turn, I will not use rude or mean language on the Internet.
  • I will not give out my Internet passwords to anyone (even my best friends) other than my parents or guardian.
  • I will help my parents or guardian understand how to have and learn things online and teach them about the Internet, computers and other technology.
