Suitability of the Services for children and parental
control tools
5
Appendix
Modify this accordingly to suit if appropriate: The
Services are not directed at children under the age
of 13 and are not structured specifically to attract
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.
If you permit a child to use your LG Smart TV to
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.
Viruses and Security
Modify this accordingly to suit if appropriate: We
use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that
the Services are secure and virus free, but those
efforts cannot and do not guarantee that the
Services will be free from bugs, viruses, or other
vulnerabilities.
Further, we do not accept responsibility for any loss
or damage caused by a virus, distributed denialof-service attack, or other technologically harmful
material that may infect your LG Smart TV, data or
other material belonging to you, during your use of
the Services.

We may assign, sub-contract or otherwise transfer
any or all of our rights and obligations under these
Terms of Use to any company, firm or person. We
can only do this if it does not materially affect
your rights under these Terms of Use. You may not
assign, sub-contract or otherwise transfer your
rights or obligations under these Terms to anyone
else (except where you dispose of your LG Smart TV
to a third party) unless you first agree this with us in
writing.

that we have against you at a particular time, then
this does not prevent us from later deciding to
exercise or enforce that right.

illegal, invalid or otherwise unenforceable by a
court or regulator, then, where required, that part
shall be deleted and the remaining parts of the

that are enforceable by any person who is not party
to them.
