Online safety is very important. Please review the following document and take it seriously.
Please also take a few minutes to check out the safety links at the bottom of this document.
We do not want you to be afraid, but we do want you to be aware, smart and safe while online. These tips go well beyond the GirlsGames.com Site.
Online Safety requirements based on Age
There is no requirement to become a Girls Games Member. You can discover games and enjoy game reviews without becoming one.
However, if you wish to become a Girls Games Member you need to be 13 years or older.
We require that teens over the age of 13 but not yet 18, to first get their adult parent or guardian’s permission before posting any content on Girls Games; particularly, as it pertains to sending any information about themselves to anyone else on the Internet using the Girls Games Site and Service. The latter we advise all teens to be extremely cautious about (see more below). Girls Games requires that parents/guardians of teens, 13-18 years of age, supervise and take responsibility for their teen’s action while online through our Site and Service.
Third Party Games, Sites, and Services. External Services and Links.
A number of services and games appearing on Girls Games are provided by third parties or are external links to third parties. Many of them include their own (independent of Girls Games) third-party advertising (e.g., In Game Advertising) and other external (non-Girls Games related, not placed by Girls Games, etc.) links. In addition, Girls Games may intentionally opt to include or place links to other third party sites and services that are both game and nongame related. All of these third party games, sites, services, links and associated advertising are operated by companies that are outside of Girls Games control, and your activities with those games and services and at those sites will be governed by the policies and practices of those third parties. We encourage you to review the online safety and privacy practices of those third parties before disclosing any personally identifiable information, as Girls Games is not responsible for the online safety and privacy practices of those external third-party games, sites, links and services.
Despite Girls Games' safety and privacy controls, Girls Games cannot guarantee that its Site and Service is completely free of illegal, offensive, or otherwise inappropriate material, or that its members will not encounter inappropriate conduct from other members. Consequently, you may encounter such content and conduct. If you do please alert us by "flagging" the offending content (post).
Behaving Safe, Being Safe
We require that all Girls Games Site users review “Girls Games Community Guidelines.”
We need all users to report inappropriate behavior and content they encounter on Girls Games. We strongly encourage all Girls Games members under the age of 18 to talk to their adult parent/guardian immediately if someone posts something online that makes them feel uncomfortable or threatened.Some people online may pretend to be someone they are not in the real world. You should always be careful. It is extremely risky to meet anyone in person whom you don't previously (already) know in the real world. We strongly recommend that you DO NOT DO IT. If you are going to do it anyways, PLEASE, take your parent/guardian with you or at least let your parent/guardian know what you are doing, go with several friends, make sure any meeting is in a public area and make sure you and your friends bring your cell phones. Again we strongly recommend that you DO NOT DO IT; better to meet people through family and friends you know in real world, but if you are going to do it, please be smart about it and please keep your parents/guardians/friends in the loop. They love you!
