In order to access our website and use services provided in it, underage children and adolescents must have previous explicit permission from their parents, tutors or legal representatives, who will be considered directly responsible for whatever acts are carried out by minors under their charge. Full responsibility for determining which contents minors have access to, and which specific services they may use, is borne by the adults who are legally in charge of the minor. As Internet allows access to certain contents that may not be appropiate for minors, UCSA informs responsible adults that there are several mechanisms-specifically computer programme filters-that enable one to limit available contents, and although they are not infallible, they are of great help if one wishes to limit, control or restrict the contents to which minors may have access.
