The following terms apply to all users of, and visitors to my site. Your use of my site means that you accept, and agree to abide by, all the provisions hereunder.

You may use my site only for lawful purposes. You may not use my site:

  • in any way that breaches any applicable local, national or international law or regulation;

  • in any way that is unlawful or fraudulent, or has any unlawful or fraudulent purpose or effect;

  • for the purpose of harming or attempting to harm minors in any way;

You also agree not to access without authority, interfere with, damage or disrupt:

  • any part of my site;

  • any equipment or network on which my site is stored;

  • any software used in the provision of my site; or

  • any equipment or network or software owned or used by any third party.

Interactive services

I may from time to time provide interactive services on my site, including, without limitation chat rooms, bulletin boards (“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 fool-proof. 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.

Content standards

These content standards apply to any and all material which you contribute to our site (“contributions”), and to any interactive services associated with it.

You must comply with the spirit and the letter of the following standards. The standards apply to each part of any contribution as well as to its whole.

Contributions must be accurate (where they state facts), be genuinely held (where they state opinion), and comply with applicable law in the UK and in any country from which they are posted.

Contributions must not:

  • contain any material which is defamatory of any person;
