THIRD PARTY LINKS AND RESOURCES IN OUR SITE
Where Our Site contains links to other sites and resources provided by third parties, these links are provided for your information only and do not necessarily imply an endorsement from Us.
We have no control over the contents of those sites or resources and We cannot accept any responsibility for them.
Hypertext links are links by which visitors can move from one website to another or from one page to another within the same website. Deep links are hypertext links which take visitors into a particular page on a website whilst bypassing the homepage of that website. Our Site contains hypertext links to third parties' websites. Any hypertext links and deep links between Our Site and any third party website are provided for your convenience only and We accept no liability whatsoever for the contents of any such third party website. We exclude, to the fullest extent permitted by law, all liability that may arise in connection with or as a result of third party website material causing any damage, costs, injury or loss of any kind.

INTERACTIVE SERVICES AND FEEDS
We may from time to time provide interactive services on Our Site, including, without limitation forums (Interactive Services). Similarly, we may also provide Twitter and other social media feeds (Feeds) on Our Site which automatically display live content that users of such social media have uploaded about Us and Our services. Accordingly, we have no control whatsoever over the Feed content displayed on our Site, although We do try to monitor our social media pages as regularly as possible.
Where We do provide any Interactive Service, 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 from third parties when they use any Interactive Service provided on Our Site or in relation to Feeds displayed 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 or Feeds We provide or display 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 or in relation to any Feeds in contravention of Our content standards, whether the service or Feed is moderated or not.
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 foolproof. Minors who are using any Interactive Service should be made aware of the potential risks to them.
Where We do moderate an Interactive Service, We will normally provide you with a means of contacting the moderator, should a concern or difficulty arise.
These Content Standards apply to any and all material which you contribute to Our Site (Contributions), [and to any Interactive Services associated with it.]
