1. Be Safe
When you’re using the Civilisations AR experience, please make sure that you are in a safe environment. Don’t use the AR experience while walking or driving and be aware of your surroundings! Wait a little bit before starting activities that require you to focus.

Children may start playing without taking time to think about relevant safety requirements and when they get excited they often forget to be aware of obstacles and hazards in their surroundings. Therefore an adult needs to be present to ensure that children are safe when using the Civilisations AR experience.

Also, don’t use the Civilisations AR experience if you have a medical condition that may affect you when using it or if you consumed anything that may affect your balance. In any case, stop using the AR experience immediately if you feel nausea, dizziness or any disorientation.
