Never arrange to meet anyone in person without first agreeing it with your parent or carer, and get them to come along to the first meeting, which should always be in a public place.
Never hang around in a chat room or in a conference if someone says or writes something which makes you feel uncomfortable or worried, always report it to your parent or carer.

Always tell your parent or carer if you see bad language or distasteful pictures while you are online.
Always be yourself and do not pretend to be anyone or anything you are not.
Always remember - if someone makes you an offer which seems too good to be true, it probably is.
