This acceptable use policy sets out the terms between you and me under which you may access my website (my site). This acceptable use policy applies to all users of, and visitors to, my site.

Interactive services

I may from time to time provide interactive services on my site, including, without limitation:

Chat rooms.

Bulletin boards.

“Locker room” feedback.

(interactive services).

Where I do provide any interactive service, I 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).

I will do my best to assess any possible risks for users (and in particular, for children) from third parties when they use any interactive service provided on my site, and I 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, I am under no obligation to oversee, monitor or moderate any interactive service I provide on my site, and I expressly exclude my liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any interactive service by a user in contravention of my content standards, whether the service is moderated or not.

The use of any of my interactive services by a minor is subject to the consent of their parent or guardian. I 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 I do moderate an interactive service, I will normally provide you with a means of contacting the moderator, should a concern or difficulty arise.
