  • Use of interactive services by minors
  • The use of any of the interactive services provided on our site (from time to time and if any) by a minor is subject to the consent of their parent or guardian.  We advise parents who permit their children to use any interactive services that it is important that they communicate with their children about their safety online.  Minors who are using interactive services should be made aware of the potential risks to them, the fact that moderation (if any) is not foolproof and of their obligation to comply with this acceptable use policy when using interactive services.
  • We will do our best to assess any possible risks to minors from third parties when they use interactive services, and we will decide in each case whether it is appropriate to use moderation of the relevant service (including what kind of moderation to use) in the light of those risks.
