You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by checking certain boxes on the forms Princes use to collect your data. You can also exercise the right at any time by contacting Princes at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Website may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of Princes’ partner networks, advertisers and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that Princes do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.
6. Access to information
The Act gives you the right to access information held about you. Your right of access can be exercised in accordance with the Act. Any access request may be subject to a fee of £10 to meet Princes’ costs in providing you with details of the information they hold about you.

2. Interactive services
Princes may from time to time provide interactive services on the Website, including, without limitation:
- (a) chat rooms.
- (b) bulletin boards.
Where we do provide any Interactive Service, we will provide clear information to you about the kind of service offered, if it is moderated and what form of moderation is used (including whether it is human or technical).
Princes will do our best to assess any possible risks for users (and in particular, for children) from third parties when they use any Interactive Service provided on the Website, 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. However, Princes are under no obligation to oversee, monitor or moderate any Interactive Service we provide on the Website, and we expressly exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any Interactive Service by a user in contravention of our content standards, whether the service is moderated or not.
The use of any of our Interactive Services by a minor is subject to the consent of their parent or guardian. We advise parents who permit their children to use an Interactive Service that it is important that they communicate with their children about their safety online, as moderation is not foolproof. Minors who are using any Interactive Service should be made aware of the potential risks to them.
Where we do moderate an Interactive Service, we will normally provide you with a means of contacting the moderator, should a concern or difficulty arise.
