Please read this Acceptable Use Policy carefully before you start to use our Site, as this policy will apply to your use of the Site.
By using and/or visiting the Site you agree to this Acceptable Use Policy and the Terms and you expressly consent and agree to be bound by this Acceptable Use Policy and the Terms and all applicable laws and regulations that govern the Site and the services and/or products offered by Banks Legal and/or any group company on the Site which you may avail of (the Services).

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

We may from time to time provide interactive services on our Site (interactive services).
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 (and in particular, for children) from third parties when they use any interactive service provided 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 we provide 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 in contravention of our content standards, whether the service 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.
