Safety Information for Parents

If you're reading this page, it's because you're a parent who's concerned about where your kids are going on the Internet and who they're interacting with when they get there. And why wouldn't you be?

Now that you're here, we'd like to introduce you to Nick.com's message boards and comments that we've designed to be a safe place for kids to hang out, be creative, and connect with each other online.

In the Nick.com sites, kids can post in message boards about their favorite shows and comment on all the slime-tastic content!

We know what you're thinking: Messages and comments online, is that safe? And that's why our goal is for Nick.com to be THE safe place online where kids can interact with one another.

To that end, we've put the following safeguards in place:

  • Visitors to the message boards are identified only by their Usernames (screen names they choose when logging on to Nick.com), not their real names. No personally identifiable information (names, email addresses, etc.) can be accessed through a Username.
  • Nick.com does not store real names, email addresses, mailing addresses, phone numbers or other personally identifiable information anywhere, ever.
  • Message boards and comments are pre-screened by Nick.com. No obscene, violent or threatening language is included in the dictionary.

And, most importantly:

  • If at any time a visitor to Nick.com feels uncomfortable in any way, they can report the incident directly to us by clicking on the Report Chat or Report a Concern button that appears on the screen throughout their visit to the message boards.

All that being said, at Nick.com we understand that just like in the real world, parents want to know where their kids are hanging out online (after all, many of us are parents too). We hope you'll surf around Nick.com and experience the message boards for yourself.

While you're here, please read our Ground Rules and the Nick.com Online Safety Guide . Better yet, read the Ground Rules and Safety Guide with your child and talk about Internet safety together.

For further information about Nick.com's online privacy rules, please refer to our Privacy Policy . If you have any questions or concerns about the message boards and comments, please click Report a Concern .
