Other websites and interactive services
The Page may contain links to other websites and microsites operated by third parties as well as content, information and other materials belonging to or originating from third parties. Such websites and content are not under our control and we make no warranties or representations whatsoever in respect of the same. Without limiting the foregoing, such third party websites and content are in no way approved, vetted, checked or endorsed by us and we shall not be responsible or in any way liable for the content, accuracy, compliance with relevant laws or accessibility of any information, data, advice or statements or for the quality of any products or services available on or included in such content or websites. If you choose to access these, you do so at your own risk.

The use of any of our interactive services by a minor 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 fool proof. Minors who are using any interactive service should be made aware of the potential risks to them.

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 Page, 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, 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.

We cannot be liable for any damage to, or viruses that may infect your computer equipment or any other property when using or browsing the Page. The downloading or other acquisition of any materials or information through the Page is done at your own discretion and risk and with your agreement that you will be solely responsible for any damage to your computer system or loss of data that results from the downloading or acquisition of any such materials.
