10 Commandments of Internet Behavior

1. You shall remember that you and those you communicate with on the Internet are created in the image of God and you shall treat all people with respect.

2. You shall take personal responsibility for holding up the dignity of all people by refusing to take part in activities that embarrass or threaten another person.

3. You shall communicate with your parents or other trusted adults if someone or something on the Internet makes you feel uncomfortable.

4. You shall not participate in cyber-bullying; your messages will be truthful and will not harm others.

5. You shall take personal responsibility for protecting your name, your passwords, and all of your personal information while using the Internet.

6. You shall not use the passwords of others at any time or for any purpose.

7. You shall use security software and update it regularly.

8. You shall never meet someone “in person” whom you’ve “met” online.

9. You shall never use the Internet to steal someone’s graphic, written, recorded, or real property.
