And, don't forget that what you may find is harmless fun might not be to others and could
even be hurtful or offensive. Always remember to be respectful when using your mobile to
communicate with others.


If you feel unsafe or threatened at any time, we recommend you call or pop into the nearest Police Station http://www.police.govt.nz/contact-us/stations
