Pledge Your Support of Internet Safety in SA

SID 2014

Safer Internet Day (SID) is celebrated in February each year to promote the safe and responsible use of online technology and mobile phones for children and young people across the world. This year, South Africa joins over 100 countries on 6 continents in highlighting the creative things we all do online, as well as the responsibility we all have in helping to create a better internet. We therefore invite everyone to engage in online activities as part of SA’s own Internet Safety Campaign (ISC).

Our activities include a chance to quiz yourself on making good decisions online, voting on a teen poll that helps us understand teens experiences or a parent poll that helps us understand parents needs. To get started, pledge your support of Internet Safety in SA by signing the ISC Honour Code which is the undertaking by all Internet users to commit to “working together to ensure a safe online environment for all”.

The statement below outlines the commitments and key principles that each individual will follow as a supporter of Internet Safety.

ISC Honour Code

I, the undersigned, agree to uphold the ISC Honour Code and meet the challenge of "working together to ensure a safe online environment for all".

I hereby acknowledge that:

I will work with others to help build a community governed by integrity, compliance and trust.
I will learn from others and share knowledge on how to become a safe and responsible Internet user.
I will protect my personal information online and the information entrusted to me by others.
I will respect others online, have empathy and value difference of opinion and experience.
I will not do anything online that could harm others or that is against the law.
I will report all online incidents that could harm others or that is against the law.

In this way, I support this vital initiative to increase public awareness and education of Internet Safety, which will contribute to reducing crimes and losses on our continent.
