The app also contains some features which are available to parents or guardians, including the ability to sign up for the service on behalf of your children and to manage your account. Due to the nature of this app and the activities to be performed whilst using the app we ask that, as a parent or guardian, you ensure that your child(ren) are supervised at all times whilst using the app by yourself or another appropriate adult. This user agreement is aimed at, and intended to be read by, both users of the app and (for users under the age of 13) their parents and guardians. Unless otherwise stated, references to “you” or “your” are references to the person who is using the app and carrying out the activities described, but in all cases where that person is under the age of 13 parents and guardians are responsible for ensuring that the app is used in a safe and appropriate manner and in accordance with the terms of this user agreement. Downloading and installing this app This app is available for download from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.

If you have your own device (phone or tablet) you should download the app onto that device. If not, you can download this app onto someone else's device (for example your parent's or guardian's phone) provided that you have their permission to do so. We may from time to time make updates available for the app. You should either enable automatic updates on your device or alternatively check the relevant app store regularly to make sure you have the latest version. Registering to use the app Whilst you can use certain features of the app without registering, to get the full benefit of the app you will need to create an account. Where you do so you must keep your password confidential and secure and you must not let anyone else access your account.
