Parents are encouraged to spend time online with their children under the age of majority and to become familiar with the types of content available in the Game and on the Internet in general. We encourage parents to regularly oversee their kids' use of e-mail and other online communications and in-game player creations. Control tools are available in the Game such as setting play time parameters and limit access to the Game, in addition to the online services and software manufacturers that can help provide a safe online environment for kids. You can find out about services that protects your kids from www.LEGOuniverse.com.

LEGO provides the following services in relation to the Game:

a. Managed accounts: Parent’s and child’s LEGO ID’s have to be linked together in order to activate parental controls. This linking happens through the child’s account.

b.Identity Validation: Parents and players over the age of majority that want to link accounts with children must validate their ID.

c. Best Friends: Parents must approve Best Friend requests that children make in the Game. Once a Best Friends request has been accepted the newly linked Best Friends can build together before moderation on the created content takes place.

d. Play time schedule: Parents utilizing the Play time schedule can control their child’s in-game play time.

Using the parental control tools does not require an Account but only a LEGO ID. To use the parental controls, the child (the Account holder) has to initiate a request for account management to the parent’s LEGO ID. Once initiated, the parent has to validate his/her identity – after that the Accounts are linked and the parent is free to use the parental controls for the child.

In case you establish an Account for your child, you understand and accept that it is your responsibility as the legal guardian to determine whether the Game is appropriate for your child. You may not share the Account with anyone, except that if you are a parent or guardian, you may permit one (1) minor child to use the Account when not in use by you. You are liable for all uses of the Account that has been enabled by you. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, you acknowledge and agree that you shall have no ownership or other property interest in the Account.

XVI. ENTIRE AGREEMENT:

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, UNDERSTAND THEM AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THEIR TERMS AND CONDITIONS.YOU FURTHER AGREE THAT IT IS THE COMPLETE AND EXCLUSIVE STATEMENT OF THE AGREEMENT BETWEEN US WHICH SUPERSEDES ANY PROPOSAL OR PRIOR AGREEMENT, ORAL OR WRITTEN, AND ANY OTHER COMMUNICATIONS BETWEEN US RELATING TO THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS AGREEMENT.

If you experience any of the following symptoms while playing an online or video game -- dizziness, altered vision, eye or muscle twitches, loss of awareness, disorientation, any involuntary movement, or convulsions -- IMMEDIATELY discontinue use and consult your physician before resuming play.
