Any Internet user should follow these "Do Not' s" to have continuous use of your computer and the Internet. So, take care.
- DO NOT... use your real name and personal details online unless you rely the site.
- DO NOT ...allow your child to meet face-to-face with someone met online unless you will be there.
- DO NOT....allow e-mail from an unknown sender to be opened; it may contain a virus.
- DO NOT ...give out passwords or credit card numbers online.But the card numbers can be given if the site is reliable.
- DO NOT...hand in material found online as your own work. Always quote the source in such cases.Otherwise it is plagiarism, which is illegal.
- DO NOT... tamper with or hack into someone else's computer. That is a serious crime.
- DO NOT... copy software you have not paid for or received written permission to copy.
- DO NOT... order anything offered "free" without parent's permission.
- DO NOT...click on an e-mail attachment unless you know who it's from.
- DO NOT...respond to junk e-mail (spam). Not even to "unsubscribe" from their e-mailing list that just lets the spammer know they've found a valid e-mail address. The safest way is to "ignore and delete"!
- DO NOT... arrange to meet anyone you've met on the Internet without telling your parents.
- DO NOT... make copies of any copyrighted material, like books, magazines or music or software, without the permission of the author, publisher, or artist. It's a crime. This is the same as stealing them from a store.
