WEBSITE USER GUIDELINES
Our Digital World
- We want to create a digital world that is fun, interactive and safe for you to use.
- For your protection, we take what happens in it seriously. We monitor posts and deal with any inappropriate behaviour (see ‘Our Rules’, below).
- So feel free to get involved! Try our websites, SMS numbers and social networking feeds.
- But don’t get a shock: you will be charged by your telco provider for the SMS messages you send to our premium numbers.
For Your Own Safety
