Interactive uses

We currently offer the following interactive services through our site:
• Forum; (see below for further forum policy)
• advertising through the Classifieds section of our site,

(together the ‘interactive services’). Where we do provide any interactive services, 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 any persons under the age of 18 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. Persons who are using any interactive service should be made aware of the potential risks to them. In addition, as only persons aged 18 years are entitled to enter into legally binding contracts, only persons over the age of 18 are entitled to post or respond to advertisements through the Classifieds section of our site. Any individuals who are under the age 18, or are otherwise unable to form legally binding contracts, are expressly prohibited from using the Classifieds section of our site.
