Keeping Safe Online

The first policy we have is that users of the site should have a Google Account to join the Community and participate.  This is so we have a means of contacting people and making sure we can manage permissions to the site.  Ability to post and comment is dependent on gaining permission from the site.  The minimum age to join any of the groups is 13 years old.  This is part of the Google Group Terms of Use.  Using the Google framework of Apps and Accounts provides a layer of oversight independent of the Colchester Online Learning Community.

Further documents related to use and remaining safe online will be added to the files area of the site.  For information on online safety and safeguarding of individuals through online services and in the community can be found on the website for SAFE - Safer Activities for Everyone www.safecic.co.uk.
