We may investigate and prosecute violations of these terms to the fullest legal extent. We may notify and cooperate with law enforcement authorities in prosecuting violations of the law and these terms.

We reserve the right to change, redact, and delete content on the Community for any reason. If you believe someone has submitted content to the Community in violation of these terms, contact Us immediately.

Your Account

You must create and log into an account to use some features of the Community.

To create an account, you must provide some information about yourself. If you create an account, you agree to provide, at a minimum, a valid e-mail address, and to keep that address up-to-date. You may close your account at any time by e-mailing Us at

You agree to be responsible for all action taken using your account, whether authorized by you or not, until you either close your account or notify Us that your account has been compromised. You agree to notify Us immediately if you suspect your account has been compromised.

We may restrict, suspend, or close your account on the Community according to its policy for handling copyright-related takedown requests, or if We reasonably believe that you’ve broken any rule in these terms.

Your Content

Nothing in these terms gives Us any ownership rights in intellectual property that you share with the Community, such as your account information, posts, or other content you submit to the Community. Nothing in these terms gives you any ownership rights in Our intellectual property, either.

Between you and Us, you remain solely responsible for content you submit to the Community. You agree not to wrongly imply that content you submit to the forum is sponsored or approved by Us. These terms do not obligate Us to store, maintain, or provide copies of content you submit, and to change it, according to these terms.

Content you submit to the Community belongs to you, and you decide what permission to give others for it. But at a minimum, you license Us to provide content that you submit to the Community to other users of the Community. That special license allows Us to copy, publish, and analyze content you submit to the Community.

When content you submit is removed from the Community, whether by you or by Us, such special license ends when the last copy disappears from Our backups, caches, and other systems. Other licenses you apply to content you submit, such as Creative Commons licenses, may continue after your content is removed. Those licenses may give others, or Us, the right to share your content through the Community again.

Others who receive content you submit to the Community may violate the terms on which you license your content. You agree that We will not be liable to you for those violations or their consequences.

Your Responsibility

You agree to indemnify Us from legal claims by others related to your breach of these terms, or breach of these terms by others using your account on the Community. Both you and We agree to notify the other side of any legal claims for which you might have to indemnify Us as soon as possible. If We fail to notify you of a legal claim promptly, you won’t have to indemnify Us for damages that you could have defended against or mitigated with prompt notice. You agree to allow Us to control investigation, defense, and settlement of legal claims for which you would have to indemnify Us, and to cooperate with those efforts. We agree not to agree to any settlement that admits fault for you or imposes obligations on you without your prior agreement.


You accept all risk of using the Community and content on the Community. As far as the law allows, We and Our suppliers provide the forum as is, without any warranty whatsoever.

The forum may hyperlink to and integrate forums and services run by others. We does not make any warranty about services run by others, or content they may provide. Use of services run by others may be governed by other terms between you and the one running service.

Limits on Liability

Neither We nor Our suppliers will be liable to you for breach-of-contract damages their personnel could not have reasonably foreseen when you agreed to these terms.

As far as the law allows, the total liability to you for claims of any kind that are related to the forum or content on the Community will be limited to £1.


We welcome your feedback and suggestions for the Community. See the Contact section below for ways to get in touch with Us.

You agree that Wey will be free to act on feedback and suggestions you provide, and that We won’t have to notify you that your feedback was used, get your permission to use it, or pay you. You agree not to submit feedback or suggestions that you believe might be confidential or proprietary, to you or others.


Either you or We may end the agreement written out in these terms at any time. When our agreement ends, your permission to use the Community also ends.

The following provisions survive the end of our agreement: Your Content, Feedback, Your Responsibility, Disclaimers, Limits on Liability, and General Terms.


The Laws of England and Wales will govern any dispute related to these terms or your use of the Community.

You and We agree to seek injunctions related to these terms only in courts in England and Wales. Neither you nor We will object to jurisdiction, forum, or venue in those courts.

If any dispute arises in connection with this agreement, You and We agree to enter into mediation in good faith to settle such a dispute and will do so in accordance with the CEDR Model Mediation Procedure. Unless otherwise agreed between the parties within 14 working days of notice of the dispute, the mediator will be nominated by CEDR. To initiate the mediation a party must give notice in writing to the other party to the dispute, referring the dispute to mediation. A copy of the referral should be sent to CEDR.

Unless otherwise agreed, the mediation will start not later than 28 working days after the date of the ADR Notice. No party may commence any court proceedings/arbitration in relation to any dispute arising out of this agreement until it has attempted to settle the dispute by mediation and either the mediation has terminated or the other party has failed to participate in the mediation, provided that the right to issue proceedings is not prejudiced by a delay.

General Terms

If a provision of these terms is unenforceable as written, but could be changed to make it enforceable, that provision should be modified to the minimum extent necessary to make it enforceable. Otherwise, that provision should be removed.

You may not assign your agreement with Us. We may assign your agreement to any of Our affiliates, any other company that obtains control of Us, or any other company that buys assets of Us related to the Community. Any attempted assignment against these terms has no legal effect.

Neither the exercise of any right under this Agreement, nor waiver of any breach of this Agreement, waives any other breach of this Agreement.

These terms embody all the terms of agreement between you and Us about use of the forum. These terms entirely replace any other agreements about your use of the forum, written or not.


You may notify Us under these terms, and send questions to Us, at

We may notify you under these terms using the e-mail address you provide for your account on the Community, or by posting a message to the homepage of the Community or your account page.


We last updated these terms on 31 March, 2019, and may update these terms again. We will post all updates to the forum. For updates that contain substantial changes, We agree to e-mail you, if you’ve created an account and provided a valid e-mail address. We may also announce updates with special messages or alerts on the forum.

Once you get notice of an update to these terms, you must agree to the new terms in order to keep using the forum.
