Standard Terms and Conditions of business

Our on-line portfolio pages need to meet standards which are treated as legal, decent, honest and truthful and should not contain anything which, as a matter of common sense, could be treated by normal people as objectionable material - including anything unlawful, defamatory, vulgar, pornographic, abusive, or in any way harmful to another person.

We expect our terms and conditions to be taken at face value. They are written in plain English and without reams of small print so that you will read them, understand them and then choose whether or not to accept them.

If you do not agree to these terms you may not use this Website.

By presenting Work in your portfolio on the Website, you grant licence to us to display that Work in the normal way in which work is made available through the Website. It is your absolute responsibility to monitor your portfolio and its appearance on the Website, to make sure that works displayed in your portfolio comply with these terms and conditions and with the laws governing the use, publication or display of those types of Works.

Force Majeure or Disaster

We will try to make sure that the Website  continues to be fully functioning and we will take reasonable precautions to protect the Website and Works which are displayed by you on the Website. If anything beyond our control stops us from being able to maintain the Website,  and present your portfolio of Work, we will not be liable for any loss of business, direct or indirect losses, loss of any of the Works or down time caused by the problem. You will not use the Website as a storage facility for yourself and you will keep original and back up copies safe from harm in your own system.

Termination

If you do anything or allow anyone else to do anything in or to the Website which amounts to a breach of these terms and conditions, we will stop you using the Website immediately and your portfolio pages will be removed. Our decision on such matters is final.
