These are the general terms and conditions. If you use our services, you agree to abide by these terms.
Warning: unless we have agreed a particular level of service with you, we make absolutely no promises about the quality or existence of any of our services . Please read the sections below and our general exclusion of liability.
All use of our website and services are subject to our terms for visitors and users. There are further terms if you have signed up for an account with one of our services and, if you have agreed to pay us for a service, please see the additional terms for paid-for services. At the end are some general terms and definitions.
While we are proud of our services and events, we make no promises about them.
We are not a law firm and nothing we do is intended to be taken as legal advice. In particular:
What you agree
You agree not to use our website to do any of the following:
- Anything which is illegal either where you are in the world, or where we are.
- Cause nuisance to other users of our services.
- Interfere with the normal running of our services or events.
- Try to access our systems in a way other than those advertised by us and, in particular, to use a web crawler that does not respect the robots exclusion policy.
Exclusion — what we do not owe you
We limit our liability in several different ways — all of which we believe to be fair. In case any one of them is found to be unenforceable by a court, each of the following limitations of liability is separate and our liability to you is limited by all of them.
We will not be liable for any damage that was not reasonably foreseeable at the time we made this agreement.
We are not liable for any loss which is indirect or consequential. That includes any loss of business or profit.
We exclude, in so far as we are allowed, any warranties that would be implied by law.
These final “boilerplate” terms of should go without saying, but we are saying them anyway just to be clear.
If any part of this agreement is ineffective (for example because it is unlawful) then the rest of the agreement should be read without it.
This agreement is between you and us and is not intended to give anyone else any rights. We may sometimes fail to enforce our rights under this agreement (for example because we decide not to, or we did not realise you were in breach of contract). Just because we have not enforced any of our rights, does not stop us from doing so in the future.
Neither party is liable for anything which is beyond their reasonable control.
