You may use the LRI Website only for lawful purposes. You may not use the LRI Website:

In any way that is unlawful or fraudulent, or has any unlawful or fraudulent purpose or effect. To send, knowingly receive, upload, download, use or re-use any material which does not comply with our Content Standards. To transmit, or procure the sending of, any unsolicited or unauthorised advertising or promotional material or any other form of similar solicitation (spam).

Interactive Services

We may from time to time provide Interactive Services on the LRI Website, including, without limitation chat rooms and bulletin ("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 from third parties when they use any Interactive Service provided on the LRI Website, 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 the LRI Website, and we expressly exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any interactive service by any user in contravention of our Content Standards, whether the service is moderated or not.

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.
