Where we do provide any
interactive service, we will provide clear information to you about the kind of

(including whether it is human or technical).
We will do our best to
assess any possible risks for users (and in particular, for children) from
third parties when they use any interactive service provided on our site, 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. However, we are under no obligation to oversee, monitor or
moderate any interactive service we provide on our site, and we expressly
exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any
interactive service by a user in contravention of our content standards,
whether the service is moderated or not.
The use of any of our
interactive services by a minor is subject to the consent of their parent or
guardian. We advise parents who permit their children to use an interactive
service that it is important that they communicate with their children about
their safety online, as moderation is not foolproof. Minors who are using any
interactive service should be made aware of the potential risks to them.
Where we do moderate an
interactive service, we will normally provide you with a means of contacting
the moderator, should a concern or difficulty arise.
