If you do not agree to these terms of use, we ask that you please refrain from visiting the different companies represented here at little room. We are obliged to set out terms and conditions of use due to rising levels of internet crime, cyber attack, fraudulent malicious online theft of personal and company identity, and misuse or avoidance of international copyright law.

From time to time, we may restrict access to some parts of our site, or our entire site, to users who have registered with us at Auralation Music.

If you choose, or you are provided with, a user identification code, password or any other piece of information as part of our security procedures, you must treat such information as confidential, and you must not disclose it to any third party. We have the right to disable any user identification code or password, whether chosen by you or allocated by us, at any time, if in our opinion you have failed to comply with any of the provisions of these terms of use.

In any way that is unlawful or fraudulent, or has any unlawful or fraudulent purpose or effect;

Interactive services

We may from time to time provide interactive services on our site, including, without limitation: contact messages and posts; chat rooms; bulletin boards.

Where we provide (and intend to 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 editorial 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.

Content standards

These content standards apply to any and all material which you contribute to our site, and to any interactive services associated with it. You must comply with the spirit of the following standards as well as the letter of the law. The standards apply to each part of any contribution as well as to its whole.
