We will make our best efforts to consider and assess any possible risks that exist for users (and in particular, for minors) from third parties when they use any of the interactive services which are provided on our website, and we will consider in each case whether it is appropriate to use moderation of the relevant service (including what kind of moderation it is appropriate to use) taking account of those risks.
