INTERACTIVE SERVICES

We provide interactive services. 

We will do our best to assess any possible risks for users (and in particular, for children) from third parties when they use our Service, and we will decide in each case whether it is appropriate to use moderation of the Service (including what kind of moderation to use) in the light of those risks. However, we are under no obligation to oversee, monitor or moderate the Service we provide, and we expressly exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of our Service by a user in contravention of our content standards, whether the Service is moderated or not.

 

The use of our Service by a minor is subject to the consent of their parent or guardian. We advise parents who permit their children to use our Service that it is important that they communicate with their children about their safety online, as moderation is not foolproof.
