Please read these Terms and Conditions of Use ("CONDITIONS OF USE") carefully before using nick.co.uk.
This is the legal part. It's so everybody knows the rules for using nick.co.uk, nickjr.co.uk or any other Nick UK website (the “Site”). Be sure to get your parents/guardian to discuss these rules with you.
1. Remember to ALWAYS check with your parents/guardian before you use the Site or send anything to us. After all, they might want it to put on the fridge!
2. All the toys and games here are just for you to play with. You can't sell them, give them to anyone, or pretend you made them. You can't do anything EXCEPT look and play with them, unless you ask us first and we say it's OK. Kind of like playing with your big sister's games or toys, right?
3. Remember that all the stuff on the message boards, chat rooms and other places on the Site comes straight from other kids, not from someone at the Site. We wouldn't tell kids what to say, because kids have minds of their own! But if someone sends ugly messages, we'll do our best to deal with it. We all want the Site to be a good, clean place to hang out.
4. If you write something that catches our eye on a message board or in a chat room, we might want to use it on the site. By sending in your thoughts and hanging out in the chat rooms, and getting your parent’s permission to do so, you and your parents are telling us it's ok to repeat what you say. It means we can use it in any way we want, anywhere, forever. And wouldn't it be cool if we used something YOU said, made or drew forever? Of course, the folks in the legal office have their own secret code for saying this, and it’s also known as The Small Print:
The Site is controlled and operated by Nickelodeon UK Limited (company registration number 2797365) ("Nick UK") whose registered office is
17 - 29 Hawley Crescent,
London NW1 8TT
The iCarly.co.uk site is controlled and operated by Nick UK's sister company Viacom International Inc.
