members, staff, volunteers, coaches, officials/referees, board members, or anyone working on

Advice for Individual

• Do not accept children as contacts on social networking sites if you hold a position of

trust with children/young people.

• Where contact through social networking sites is used for professional reasons, restrict

the communication to professional content and obtain written consent from parents

prior to establishing contact.

• Include a third party in any communications to children, e.g. copy parents into

communications.

• Use the privacy settings on the various sites to ensure that your content will only be

viewed by appropriate people.

• Ensure that any content you place on a social networking site is age-appropriate. Do

not use the site to criticise or abuse others.

• Know where to direct junior members and their parents for information.

• Know how to report concerns.

• Know how to keep data safe and secure. This should include the personal contact

data of individuals, such as mobile numbers, email addresses and social networking

profiles.

Advice for Children

• Consider carefully who you invite to be your friend online and make sure they are who

you actually think they are.

• There are websites that offer advice about protecting yourself online, such as

www.ceop.gov.uk and www.childnet.com

• Make sure you use privacy settings so that only friends can view your profile.

• Remember that anything you post on websites may be shared with people you don't

know.

• Never post comments, photos, videos, etc., that may upset someone, that are untrue

or that are hurtful. Think about whether you may regret posting the content at a later

date.
