You may use this Site only for lawful purposes. You may not use this Site:

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;
to send, knowingly receive, upload, download, use or re-use any material which does not comply with the content standards set out below;
to transmit, or procure the sending of, any unsolicited or unauthorised advertising or promotional material or any other form of similar solicitation (spam);
to knowingly transmit any data, send or upload any material that contains viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time-bombs, keystroke loggers, spyware, adware or any other harmful programs or similar computer code designed to adversely affect the operation of any computer software or hardware.
You also agree:
not to reproduce, duplicate, copy or re-sell any part of the Site in contravention of the provisions of the Terms and Conditions;

We may from time to time provide interactive services on the Site including, without limitation, chat rooms and bulletin boards ("Interactive Services").
Where we do provide any Interactive Services, we will do our best to assess any possible risks for users (and in particular, for children) 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.
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 any Interactive Services that it is important that they communicate with their children about their safety online, as even where provided, moderation is not foolproof.

You must comply with the spirit of the following standards as well as the letter. The standards apply to each part of any Contribution as well as to its whole.
A Contribution must:
be accurate (where it states facts);
be genuinely held (where it states opinions);
comply with applicable law in the United Kingdom and in any country from which it is posted.
A Contribution must not:
contain any material which is defamatory of any person;
