Net Safety - Our Priority
My Sport Book was designed as a communications channel and a secure social networking site for sporting communities. The internet is a wonderful technology which provides us with a unique set of online tools and applications so we can communicate with each other in a variety of different ways through a variety of different mediums. The Internet can also be a confusing and dangerous place. Without a safety net, many people can fall into the danger zones of pornography, predators, online scams, Internet viruses, and spyware. With such free access to the Internet around the world, many have abused it as an opportunity to take advantage of others. The following are some tips on how you can ensure a safe internet environment for yourself, your family and friends.
|NetAlert is part of the Australian Government's ongoing commitment to providing a safe online environment for all families, especially children.

Tips for Safe Surfing
- Never give any information out about yourself (or anyone else) over the Internet.
- Never download any files on to your computer without a parent or adult's consent.
- Remember that on the Internet, people can pretend to be who they are not, and they may go to great lengths to sound convincing.
- If you use chat rooms, use a different chat name (if possible) than your user name or e-mail address.
- Remember, Internet friendships, relationships, and conversations can never be as true, personal, and rewarding as they are in person. If you really need to talk to someone, find a friend, family member, or adult you trust.
- Be wary of ANYONE who wants to know personal information about you.
- Remember that sometimes, when you are on the Internet, you may accidentally meet bad people or see things that are bad, but it's not your fault! If something you read or look at is upsetting, stop looking at it, and go tell an adult you trust or parent.
