Contents impairing development
It is not necessary for these contents to be totally inaccessible to the affected age groups: in the case of offerings that may impair minors' development, it is sufficient that access is made significantly difficult. A provider can fulfil its duty, for example, by complying with the usual transmission time restrictions (see JSS (protection of minors' statute)):
- Suitable for adults (from 18): dissemination of the offering only between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m.
- Suitable from age 16: dissemination of the offering only between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.
- Suitable from age 12: dissemination of the offering only between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m.
In addition, the providers can use technical means, or in the telemedia age ratings , that can be read by suitable technical systems for the protection of minors in order to fulfil their legal obligations.
