2.1 There is currently no charge for your use of the Sites or to download or use the Apps or any services offered through the Sites and Apps.

If you breach any part of these Terms, this licence and your authorisation to use the Apps will automatically and immediately terminate and you must immediately stop using the Apps. 2.3 You agree that we can make any changes to the Sites and Apps that we want to and that we can stop making the Sites and Apps available or limit access to them at any time. We do not have to tell you before we do this. 2.4 Anything that you may need to be able to access the Sites or Apps, such as computers, mobile devices or internet access, is your responsibility and we don’t have to provide any of this equipment for you. You are also responsible for ensuring that no person uses your equipment to access the Sites and Apps without Your Adult’s permission. We will be entitled to assume that anyone who accesses the Sites or Apps using your equipment has Your Adult’s permission to do so and you will be responsible for any charges, costs or liabilities that may be incurred by any such persons while using your equipment. 2.5 You must not attack the Sites or Apps with any nasty viruses or other things that might be harmful to the Sites, Apps or any of our users.

4. Uploading content to the sites and apps
4.1 The Sites and Apps may allow users to upload stuff including pictures, videos, artwork and messages (we call this “User Generated Content”). 4.2 Before you can upload User Generated Content to any Sites or Apps you are required to get Your Adult’s permission. For some User Generated Content, e.g. photos, this may involve us emailing Your Adults to verify that they are happy for that content to be added to the Site or App and you agree that we may do this. Other User Generated Content will also be subject to additional terms and rules, for example photo submissions for our Birthday Gallery will be subject to the Birthday Gallery Rules. You will be asked to accept these before you can upload User Generated Content. 4.3 You must not submit or upload any content to the Sites or Apps: (a) that is confidential, untrue and hurtful, infringing, obscene, offensive, racist, indecent, threatening or is otherwise unlawful or objectionable; (b) that you do not own or do not have the permission of the owner or any other relevant person who may have rights in or connected to the content you are uploading; (c) that includes any personal information about you or other people; or (d) if uploading it to the Site or App would infringe the intellectual property rights or any other rights of another person. 4.4 As between you and us you will own any content or material (“Your Content”) you upload to the Sites or Apps or request to be uploaded. You agree that we have the right to copy, distribute, adapt and use Your Content for any purpose or otherwise make it available to the public and that these rights will last forever and apply anywhere in the world. You also agree that we have the right to delete Your Content from the Sites and Apps and that we are unable to send out or return any copies of Your Content to you. 4.5 The views expressed by other users on the Sites or Apps do not represent our views or values. You are responsible for Your Content so please be sensible about what you post. 4.6 You also agree that we can disclose your identity to any third party who is claiming that any content posted or uploaded by you to any Site or App violates their intellectual property rights, their right to privacy, or any other legal rights.
5. Moderation, notice and takedown procedures
5.1 We may moderate all User Generated Content on the Sites and Apps before it is posted although we do not have to do this and you are still responsible for ensuring you do not post any unsuitable content to any of the Sites or Apps. 5.2 If you become aware that other users of the Sites or Apps have posted content which is inaccurate, inappropriate, offensive or does not comply with any of the provisions of the Terms please notify us by contacting us at email@example.com. 5.3 We may remove Your Content from any Site or App or refuse to post or upload Your Content from any Site or App at any time, for any reason and without telling you beforehand in our sole discretion. 5.4 For the avoidance of doubt any decision we make in connection with the removal of any content from any Site or App is final and we do not owe you any obligations in relation to our decisions about removing content. 5.5 If you want to have Your Content removed from any Site or App at any time, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
