Interactive Services

From time to time, informational updates and other interactive services may be provided on the ALJ Website (“Interactive Services” or “Platform”).  The Platform will provide information about the goods and services provided by Abdul Latif Jameel businesses.  The Platform is operated, controlled and moderated by the Abdul Latif Jameel PR and media team.  Abdul Latif Jameel does not review and approve content included within the Platform prior to such content going live.  Abdul Latif Jameel does not actively monitor and will not censor content, except in circumstances detailed in the Content Standards (see below).

Where another Interactive Service is provided, clear information will be provided about the kind of service offered, if it is moderated and what form of moderation is used (including whether it is human or technical). 

There is no obligation to oversee, monitor or moderate any Interactive Service and liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any Interactive Service by a user in contravention of the Content Standards (see below) is expressly excluded, whether the Interactive Service is moderated or not.  However, attempts will be made to assess possible risks for users (and in particular, for children) from third parties when they use any Interactive Service.  Also, it will be decided 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.

The use of any of the Interactive Services by a minor is subject to the consent of their parent or guardian.  Parents are advised that it is important they communicate with their children about their safety online, as moderation is not fool-proof.  Minors who are using any Interactive Service should be made aware of the potential risks to them.  Please refer to the terms below which address use of the ALJ Website by children.

Where an Interactive Service is moderated, you can contact us via email at info@alj.ae should a concern or difficulty arise with the Interactive Service or its content.
