(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 fool proof. 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.
