Appendix

Services are not directed at children under the age

children under 13. Further, certain content that
you may access through your use of the Services
may contain material that you consider indecent,
objectionable or which may not be suitable for
children.

access the Services, you are solely responsible for
deciding whether or not the relevant Services are
appropriate for access by that child.
[Your Smart TV offers a parental control tool (by
way of a 4 digit PIN). If you have enabled the 4-digit
PIN, your LG Smart TV will not be able to display
restricted content unless you type in the PIN. You
are responsible for setting up and maintaining the
parental control tool and any other controls that
are available, and we will not be responsible for any
harm, loss or damage you suffer or any other user
of your LG Smart TV suffers as a result of your failure
to do so. Depending on the models of your LG
Smart TV, these features may not be available.

use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that
