Choose Miiverse friends wisely. Friend registrations can be restricted by the Wii U system's Parental Controls. For the protection of younger users, friend requests are not possible in Miiverse for users aged 12 and under. Users aged 12 and under can make friends on Wii U outside Miiverse by entering each other's Nintendo Network IDs in the Friend List on the Wii U Menu.
Younger users are encouraged to make friends on Wii U only if they are friends in real life (such as friends from the same school or neighbourhood). They should not attempt to exchange their Nintendo Network IDs with other users on Miiverse.
All people who use Miiverse are bound to comply with the Miiverse Code of Conduct. In addition to helping to ensure that posts made in Miiverse are not inappropriate, the Miiverse Code of Conduct also prohibits the sharing of your personal information such as your e-mail address, home address, the name of your school or workplace, and phone number.
Harassment of any kind, including slander, defamation of another user, disclosure of personal information or invasion of privacy, is a violation of the Miiverse Code of Conduct. Even in messages between friends, such exchanges violate the Miiverse Code of Conduct.
If you are experiencing harassment, you can use the Report function on the offending user's profile screen. Please report any posts or messages that violate the Miiverse Code of Conduct.
Reported violations will be reviewed by a Nintendo moderator. Any post that violates the Miiverse Code of Conduct will be removed.
If you see content that presents a credible risk to your or another's safety, please contact the Australian Police by phoning 000. If contacted by the Police or other law enforcement agency, Nintendo will work with them directly on their investigation.
