1. DIGITAL ACCESS

     Digital Access means being able to access the internet at your own free will. Doing this means you must know what information is good to give out online and what isn't (examples of bad things to give out are your name, phone number, and/ or address.

     You can access the internet using things like cell phones, computers (laptop or desktop), tablets (iPad) etc. There are some sites that are not appropriate for some people's age, which means you should stay away from them even if your friend(s) says to do so. If it sounds suspicious, ask them or just don't mention it at all.

     

2. DIGITAL COMMERCE

     Digital Commerce means you can buy or sell things on the internet.

Websites such as eBay or Amazon let you buy, sell or auction things off on the internet. But sometimes they ask for your personal information, such as your full name, address, or phone number. If a website asks you for this information then you have the option to do so or not. Many people trust these sites, so it might be okay.

     Don't buy things from strangers that you meet in real life, on the internet or social media (Facebook, Twitter, Google+ etc.). Don't buy or sell things from these strangers unless you know them from places like school, work, or if you're even just related to them. But if what they sell to you seems inappropriate or suspicious, tell a trusted adult like your parents, or just don't buy it.

3. DIGITAL COMMUNICATION

     Everyone has the right to use social media, but sometimes people abuse the privilege.

You can talk to strangers but don't give them your real name or personal information like your cell phone number. Some people can use this information to find where you live and do bad things such as rob or stalk you. Don't tell them the following things: Real name, address,  and what school you go to.

     On social media, don't put your real name as your profile name or gamer-tag ("gamer-tag" applies to Xbox). Do not put any revealing pictures on your profile page (address, school etc.) or use your own face or a picture as your profile picture.
