HOW OUR RATINGS SYSTEM WORKS

General Audiances- May be suitable for readers or consumers of any age. For example, may contain mild language and fantasy violence but no swearing or nudity.

 

Parental Guidance- May be suitable for readers of any age, although those who are younger may need a parent’s consent to read the content. For example, may contain violence, infrequent use of strong language, suggestive themes or situations, crude humor, alcohol and/or tobacco use.

 

T+ – May be suitable for older teens and adults. For example, may contain intense and/or gory violence, sexual content, frequent strong language, alcohol, tobacco and/or other substance use.

 

Mature- Suitable for adults only. May contain extreme violence, mature themes and graphic depictions.

 

Please Note: While we try to apply these ratings guidelines in a clear and consistent way, they are based on our internal subjective assessments and are meant for general guidance only. We cannot guarantee uniform application and they should not be considered the equivalent of any regulatory standard. In addition, sometimes we may add in or on a publication (magazines, for example) an explanation of specific content, which in our view merits the rating icon shown in or on the publication, but that explanation is not meant to be all-inclusive. You should consult the guidelines set forth above when interpreting the ratings icons.
