Inter­act­ive Ser­vices
We may from time to time provide inter­act­ive ser­vices on our site, includ­ing, without lim­it­a­tion:
Chat rooms.
Bul­let­in boards.
(inter­act­ive ser­vices).
Where we do provide any inter­act­ive ser­vice, we will provide clear inform­a­tion to you about the kind of ser­vice offered, if it is mod­er­ated and what form of mod­er­a­tion is used (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.
