In particular they are advised to:
- keep their passwords and login details secret and to change them if they ever suspect they have become known
- be very careful about giving out personal information

- print out a copy of any malicious or insulting message they receive
- be aware that anything they say or post online can be tracked back to them
- follow the principles of the school's own eSafety policy, which they have signed personally
