Safety of children using the Internet
FCBCLA is concerned about the privacy and safety of children accessing the Internet. While the Internet is useful in many ways, it is filled with websites unsafe for children. FCBCLA can help protect children by blocking particular websites accessed through the FCBCLA network, however there are limits to doing this. The best form of protection is from proactive parental supervision. Parents must talk with their children, set rules, use parental controls, monitor computer usage, and take other similar actions to guide and guard their children from the risks and dangers found on the Internet.
FCBCLA reserves the right to change or amend this policy.
