Interactive Services

In any instance where we provide interactive services on our site, we will provide you with clear information about such services offered. We will do our best to assess and monitor any possible risks for users (and in particular, for children) from third parties when they use our site. However, we are under no obligation to oversee or moderate any interactive services 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. We strongly advise parents who permit their children to use an interactive service to ensure their safety online.

Content Standards

These content standards apply to any material contributed to any part of our site as a whole. You must comply with the following standards:-

Contributions must:

  • Adhere to UK legislation and also to the laws of the country from which they are posted;
  • Be accurate (in stating facts);
  • Be genuinely held (in stating opinions).

Contributions must not:

  • Contain sexually explicit, offensive, hateful, violent, or inflammatory content;
  • Contain material which is defamatory of any individual;
  • Promote discrimination based on age, disability, nationality, race, religion, sex, or sexual orientation;

Suspension and Termination

At our own discretion, we will determine whether there has been a breach of this policy through your use of our site. In the event of a breach, we may take such action as we deem appropriate. Failure to comply with this policy constitutes a breach of the associated ‘Website Terms of Use’ policy through which you are permitted to use our website. Such a breach may result in any or all of the following actions:-

  • Issuance of a warning against you;
  • Immediate temporary or permanent withdrawal of your right to use our site;
  • Immediate temporary or permanent removal of any material posted by you;
  • Disclosure of information to law enforcement authorities as we reasonably deem necessary;
  • Legal proceedings against you in respect of a breach for full reimbursement costs on an indemnity basis (including, but not limited to, reasonable administrative and legal costs) arising as a result of a breach.

 We exclude liability for actions taken in response to breaches of this policy. The responses described in this policy are non-exhaustive, and we may therefore take any other appropriate action we reasonably deem necessary.

Changes to the Acceptable Use Policy

We may revise this policy at any time by amending and updating it. You are expected to review same from time to time to take notice of any changes we make, as any such changes are legally binding on you. Some of the provisions contained in this policy may also be superseded by provisions or notices published elsewhere on our site.
