Our Digital World
We want to create a digital world that is fun, interactive and safe for you to use. For your protection, we take what happens in it seriously. We monitor posts and deal with any inappropriate behaviour (see ‘Our Rules’, below). So feel free to get involved! Try our websites, SMS numbers and social networking feeds.
But don’t get a shock: you will be charged by your telco provider for the SMS messages you send to our premium numbers.
