Acceptance of rules for posting

These rules (“Rules”) set out the terms under which users can post to this website (“this Site”). The Rules apply to all users. Any submission of material by you to this Site means that you accept, and agree to abide by, all the terms and conditions of these Rules.

The Rules supplement our Terms of Website Use and our Privacy Policy.

This Site is operated by Soothing Sounds LLP (“we” or “us”). We are a limited liability partnership registered in England and Wales under registration number OC381824 and have our registered office our main trading address at Aston House, Cornwall Avenue, London N3 1LF, United Kingdom.


Contributions to this Site are fully moderated. Every contribution submitted to this Site (“Contribution”) will be checked by us for compliance with our content standards (“Content Standards”) before it is published. We will try to publish as many Contributions as we can but we cannot guarantee that all Contributions will be published. We also cannot guarantee how quickly Contributions will be posted on this Site, as this will depend on other editorial commitments.

Although Contributions to this Site are fully moderated, we are under no obligation to you or any other person to oversee, monitor or moderate Contributions to this Site or any other service we provide on this Site and we may stop moderating Contributions to this Site at any time. We reserve the right to remove, or to disable access to, any Contribution which we deem to be potentially defamatory of any person or which we deem unlawful or in violation of any third party rights. We expressly exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of this Site by any person in contravention of these Rules.

Use of this Site by minors

The use of this Site, and the submission of any Contribution, by a minor is subject to the consent of their parent or guardian. We advise parents who permit their children to use this Site and/or submit a Contribution to this Site that it is important that they communicate with their children about their safety online. Minors who are using this Site should be made aware of the potential risks to them and of their obligation to comply with these Rules when using this Site.

We will do our best to assess any possible risks to minors from third parties when they use this 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.

Your location will also be stated as part of your Contribution if and when it is published on this Site.
