If you choose, or you are provided with, a user identification code or membership number, security code or password or any other piece of information as part of our security procedures, you must treat such information as confidential, and you must not disclose it to any third party.

Transactions concluded through our website

Contracts for the supply of goods or services formed through our website or as a result of visits made by you are governed by separate terms and conditions available at the point of purchase.

Uploading or posting material to our website

Whenever you make use of a feature that allows you to upload material to our website, such as making comments or embedding videos and documents in blogs, or to make contact with other users of our website, you must comply with the content standards set out herein and comply with our Code of Practice. You warrant that any such contribution does comply with those standards, and you indemnify us for any breach of that warranty. You also warrant that you have obtained the consent of any person whose personal data forms part of the material posted.

Any material you upload or post to our website will be considered non-confidential and non-proprietary, and we have the right to use, copy, distribute and disclose to third parties any such material for any purpose. You grant other users of the website a non-exclusive license to view any material you post or upload to the website. We also have the right to disclose your identity to any third party who is claiming that any material posted or uploaded by you to our website constitutes a violation of their intellectual property rights, or of their right to privacy.

Acceptable Use Policy

We require that any and all material which you contribute to our website (‘contributions’), and to any Interactive Services associated with it must comply with the following Acceptable Use Policy.

Contributions (in whole or in part) must:

Contributions must not:

You accept full liability to any third party for the content or accuracy of any materials posted by you or any other user of our website. We have the right to remove any material or posting you make on our website if, in our opinion, such material does not comply with the content standards herein.


We will do our best to assess any possible risks for users (and in particular, for children) from third parties when they use any Interactive Service provided on our website, and we will decide in each case whether it is appropriate to use moderation of the relevant service (including what kind of moderation to use) in the light of those risks. However, we are under no obligation to oversee, monitor or moderate any Interactive Service we provide on our website, and we expressly exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any Interactive Service by a user in contravention of our content standards, whether the service is moderated or not.

Unless otherwise clearly and prominently stated, we do not check or moderate your content. This means we do not check posts, comments and other material posted by you before they are published, and therefore we are not liable for any content. But if we do spot any material that does not comply with the acceptable use policy, we will remove it as soon as practically possible.

If you see a post which you feel uses offensive language or is otherwise unsuitable, if any provision of this acceptable use policy is broken by you or other users or if you have any other concerns about material posted to the website or the use of or participation in any online forum or other Interactive Service, please let us know immediately at

The use of any of our Interactive Services by a minor is subject to the consent of their parent or guardian. We advise parents who permit their children to use an Interactive Service that it is important that they communicate with their children about their safety online, as moderation is not fool proof. Minors who are using any Interactive Service should be made aware of the potential risks to them.

Suspension and termination

We will determine, in our discretion, whether there has been a breach of this acceptable use policy through your use of our website. When a breach of this policy has occurred, we may take such action as we deem appropriate.

Failure to comply with this acceptable use policy constitutes a material breach of the terms upon which you are permitted to use our website, and may result in our taking all or any of the following actions:

We may take any of the above actions in respect of registered members in accordance with the membership terms and conditions.

We exclude liability for actions taken in response to breaches of this acceptable use policy. The responses described in this policy are not limited, and we may take any other action we reasonably deem appropriate.

Our liability
