    What are examples of private information?
    Why should you not give out your private information?
    Remember that strangers, whether it is a company or a person, could use your information to find you and contact you.
    What sorts of things should you look for to make sure a website protects your privacy?
    Always look for clearly marked privacy policies, privacy seals of approval, and a person to contact with questions about privacy.
    Make a habit of checking the kids’ sites you visit for privacy policies and privacy seals of approval.
