Online safety is very important. Please review the following document and take it seriously.
Please also take a few minutes to check out the safety links at the bottom of this document.
Here is one example: http://safely.yahoo.com/profileguidelines?video=2
We do not want you to be afraid, but we do want you to be aware, smart and safe while online.
Online Safety requirements based on Age
There is no requirement to become a Girls Rock Member in order to play many of the games on girlsrock.com.
However, if you wish to become a Girls Rock Member you need to be 13 years or older.
We require that teens over the age of 13 but not yet 18, to first get their adult parent or guardian’s permission before posting any content on Girls Rock; particularly, as it pertains to sending any information about themselves to anyone else on the Internet using the Girls Rock Site and Service. The latter we advise all teens to be extremely cautious about (see more below). Girls Rock requires that parents/guardians of teens, 13-18 years of age, supervise and take responsibility for their teen’s action while online through our Site and Service.
Games Provided by Third Parties, Links to Other Sites
A number of the games appearing on Girls Rock are provided by third parties. Many of them include their own (independent of Girls Rock) third-party advertising (e.g., In Game Advertising) and other external (non Girls Rock related, not placed by Girls Rock) links. In addition, Girls Rock may intentionally opt to include or place links to other third party sites and services that are both game and nongame related. All of these third party games, sites, links and associated advertising are operated by companies that are outside of Girls Rock control, and your activities with those games and services and at those sites will be governed by the policies and practices of those third parties. We encourage you to review the online safety and privacy practices of those third parties before disclosing any personally identifiable information, as Girls Rock is not responsible for the online safety and privacy practices of those external third-party games, sites, links and services.
Despite Girls Rock's safety and privacy controls, Girls Rock cannot guarantee that its Site and Service is completely free of illegal, offensive, pornographic or otherwise inappropriate material, or that its members will not encounter inappropriate or illegal conduct from other members. Consequently, you may encounter such content and conduct. If you do please alert us by "flagging" the offending content (post) or clicking on the "Report this User"" link within the User account page.
Behaving Safe, Being Safe
We require that all Girls Rock Site users review “Girls Rock Behavior Rules and Guidelines.”
We need all users to report inappropriate behavior and content they encounter on Girls Rock. We strongly encourage all Girls Rock members under the age of 18 to talk to their adult parent/guardian immediately if someone posts something online that makes them feel uncomfortable or threatened.
People online often pretend to be someone they are not in the real world. You should always be careful. It is extremely risky to meet anyone in person whom you don't know previously know in real world. We strongly recommend that you DO NOT DO IT. If you are going to do it anyways, PLEASE, take your parent/guardian or at least let your parent/guardian know what you are doing, go with several friends, make sure any meeting is in a public area and make sure you and your friends bring your cell phones. Again we strongly recommend that you DO NOT DO IT; better to meet people through family and friends you know in real world, but if you are going to do it be smart about it and please keep your parents in the loop. They love you!
Please remember to always follow these important safety tips when using Girls Rock:
For Adult Parents and Guardians
