Internet Safety
At SailorMoon.org, we are concerned with the safety of our members. We want to provide a community that is free from behaviors that would be inappropriate for someone under 13, while still providing a place that is welcoming for all ages.

While we work hard to monitor the website and give users options to help their personal information to remain as such, there are things we cannot control. We want SailorMoon.org to remain a kid-friendly website; you can help do your part by following a few simple guidelines:

Most of these were provided by http://www.smartparent.com/

  • Never give out identifying information (name, home address, school name, or telephone number) in a public message without permission from your parent or guardian. This includes chat rooms, surfing the web, message boards or other online activities like entering contests or registering for clubs that may seem harmless.
  • Never send a person a picture of you without first checking with your parent or guardian.
  • Be sure that you are dealing with someone that you and your parents know and trust before giving out any personal information about yourself.
  • Never respond to messages or bulletin board items that are:
    • Suggestive
    • Obscene
    • Belligerent
    • Threatening
    • Making You Feel Uncomfortable
  • Be careful when someone offers you something for nothing, such as gifts and money.
  • Be very careful about any offers that involve your coming to a meeting or having someone visit your house.
  • Tell your parent or guardian right away if you come across any information that makes you feel uncomfortable. Also, let someone on the staff know.
  • Never give out your password to anyone, not even your best friend. This includes passwords for:
    • SailorMoon.org
    • your ISP or AOL account
    • your email
    • your website
  • Never open or accept e-mails, files, links, URLs or other things online from people that you don't really know or trust.
  • Never arrange a face to face meeting without telling your parent or guardian. If your parent or guardian agree to the meeting, make sure that you meet in a public place and have a parent or guardian with you. Never go alone.
  • Remember that people online may not be who they seem. Because you can't see or even hear the person, it would be easy for someone to misrepresent him- or herself. Thus, someone indicating that "she" is a "12-year-old-girl" could in reality be an older man. In return, you should never misrepresent yourself to be older or younger than you are.
  • Get to know your "online friends" just as you get to know all of your other friends - a little at a time.
