NONE 0 – 30 points


MILD 31- 49 points: You are an average online user. You may surf the Web a bit too long at times, but you have control over your usage.


MODERATE 50 -79 points: You are experiencing occasional or frequent problems because of the Internet. You should consider their full impact on your life.
