www.nataal.com is a site operated by Nataal Ltd (we or us). We are a limited company registered in England under company number 08524367 and have our registered office at 59 Meadow Road, Loughton IG10 4HY.

We may from time to time provide interactive services on our site or apps, including, without limitation:
- Chat rooms;
- Bulletin boards; and/or
- User reviews (to the extent relevant).
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 or apps, 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 or apps, 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.
These content standards apply to any and all material that you contribute to our site or apps (contributions), and to any interactive services associated with them.
You must comply with the spirit and the letter of the following standards. The standards apply to each part of any contribution as well as to its whole.
