If you choose to use the Service from outside the UK, you do so at your own risk, with the understanding that personal information collected from the Service may be collected, stored and used in a country whose privacy laws may be different and less protective than those of your home country.

The Service is not directed to children under the age of 16 but children aged 16 or over may use the Service with the supervision of their parent or guardian, where appropriate.

Parents or guardians should be aware that there are software tools available that screen objectionable content and allow you to prevent children from disclosing their personal information without your permission.
