Safety

We make every effort to ensure children have a fun and safe experience whilst using the Site. Children under the age of 12 must have their parent(s), guardian(s), carer's or teacher's permission to use and sign up to the Site.

Trained and CRB-checked moderators check all images and text submitted by individual users for publication before publishing. Children are encouraged through the site to observe the Caboodle rules and not identify themselves or their friends and family in either images or text.

Minimal personal details are required and collected for sign-in. We require children to use nicknames only. If a user registers using his or her real name or the real name of someone else this would amount to a contravention of these Terms and Conditions. We collect dates of birth as an identifier in case a child loses their password and needs to request a new one. See Clause 12 below for full details of the Culture24 privacy policy.

All users can report any content on the Site they feel uncomfortable with for any reason by email to info@caboodle.org.uk or rulebreaking@caboodle.org.uk. Moderators will consider removing such content from the website altogether as soon as possible.

Please note that children's personal Caboodle pages are not moderated. Children are encouraged to use these pages responsibly and not give out their passwords to anyone else. Culture24 cannot be held responsible for the content uploaded to children's personal pages.

If you have any questions about safety or moderation on the Caboodle website please contact us at: info@caboodle.org.uk

  9. Terms and Conditions for educational use
    a) Individual pupils/students/teachers can download and print off web pages from the Site for educational purposes within the school or other educational establishments in the UK.
    b) "Educational establishments" are defined as schools, colleges of further and higher education, universities and colleges of nursing in the UK.
    c) Multi-copying for sharing of material in classes is covered under Educational Recording Agency (ERA) licence arrangements, provided your school/educational establishment takes out a licence.
    d) If the pupils/students cut, paste and re-order material, it must be within the context of the classroom only. Neither Section 35 of the Copyright Act, nor the ERA Licence permits any distortions, amendments or mutilations and licensees are required to respect and maintain the integrity of the work copied. However, extracts or part of a website or compilations of extracts can be made, provided it is for the educational purposes of registered students of the school/educational establishment.
    e) Pupils/students can take copies of material home provided it is for continuation of work started in the classroom, required by a teacher in the course of their normal educational studies.
    f) The schools/educational establishments should not provide copies of material to parents, or other members of the public as it would be impossible for the school to ensure copies were being taken for personal use only. Copies can, however, be provided to teachers on in-service courses.
    g) Public display of a project which includes copies of our material from the Site cannot be allowed without specific permission/licence. This is because the content may not be 100% our copyright and any content licensed from third parties is unlikely to grant such permissions.
    h) Schools/educational establishments should keep records of any electronic copies of material in accordance with the ERA Licence principles, this includes labelling all copies with the date and title, together with the statement, "This electronic copy is to be used only under the terms of the ERA".
    i) Copies of material should NOT be used for any promotional, administrative or commercial purposes of the school/educational establishment.
    j) On no account should any copies be offered for sale, sold or hired out. Nor can copies be shown to fee-paying audiences or non-registered students.

For children

Caboodle is a website for children and for museums.

It is important you read through the Caboodle rules and be sure to get your parent, teacher or guardian to read and discuss them with you.

And don't forget, you should always make sure you get the consent of your parent, teacher or guardian before giving any information or sending any materials to anyone, including us, whether online, by post or in any other way.

If you are under 12, you will ALWAYS need to get your parent, teacher or guardian's permission before contacting or using the Caboodle website - whether sending Caboodle emails or signing up to the Caboodle website, especially if you are providing us with personal information.

We may need to check that your parent, teacher or guardian is happy for you to provide your information to us. Where we need to check with them, we will ask you for their contact details (usually an email address) so we can then contact them.
