Ø I will not bring floppy disks into school unless I have permission
Ø I will only e-mail people I know, or my teacher has approved
Ø The messages I send will be polite and sensible
Ø I will not give my home address or phone number, or arrange to meet someone, unless my parent, carer or teacher has given permission
Ø I will not open any e-mails or attachments from people I do not know
