The website is not moderated. We will not be responsible as author, editor or publisher of any Contribution submitted to the Board and we expressly exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of the Board by any person in contravention of these Rules. We reserve the right to promptly remove, or to disable access to, any Contribution which we deem to be potentially defamatory of any person, unlawful or in violation of any third party rights.
USE OF THE WEBSITE BY MINORS
The use of the Website by a minor is subject to the consent of their parent or guardian. We advise parents who permit their children to use the Website that it is important that they communicate with their children about their safety online.

We will do our best to assess any possible risks to minors from third parties when they use the Website, 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.
