VII - Protection of minors
Attainment of authorisation is the rule. In its absence, the person who reproduces and distributes the image without authorisation is liable. So those who reproduce the image of a child without having first obtained parental consent are in breach.
You are fully liable as soon as the "read and approved" box is checked when uploading photos of your children.
In case of violation of this clause, the person may be prosecuted before the competent courts of Geneva.
In case of doubt on the validity of the user's profile, Parentsolo.ch can also immediately notify the Geneva authorities if it was determined that the images were ambiguous, or if the information was false or counterfeited, concerning the whole of the "child" section of the Parentsolo.ch site.
