Communities are “closed” or “private” Communities for access only by those
who are invited by the Community Owner. To access these Communities you
must click on the link in the invitation the Community Owner has sent to
you. You will still need to register an account to use the Site generally
if you have not already done so. You can, of course, request access to a

have the rights to do so;

which is malicious or technologically harmful;
aware that you don’t have the right to take content or ideas posted by
other people and to use them for your own purposes or to give them to other
persons. Where you are using a private Community, the Community Owner
expects that you will treat all content and information which you see in it
as confidential. Please be aware that you may also be bound by
confidentiality obligations owed to the Community Owner based on contracts
you have in place with the Community Owner such as, for example, under a
contract of employment or contract for services; and
note that many Communities are not moderated (although some Community
Owners choose to do so) and rely on contributions from users. We are not
responsible for inappropriate or unlawful content which may appear you
should treat content with common sense caution.
We, or the
relevant Community Owner, have the right to promptly remove, edit or to
disable access to, any contribution which is deemed to be potentially
unlawful, in breach of any third party rights or in breach of these

are assigned to the Community Owner and that you can’t use
them for any other purpose. Make sure you read any Community Specific User
Terms carefully therefore to understand what rights you have and are
intellectual property rights in the Site (as opposed to the content and
ideas you contribute in Communities, which is explained above) are owned by
us and you can’t use the Site, our intellectual property and branding for
any purpose other than to receive the services that we provide.

removed or amended by the relevant Community Owner at any time. You can
stop using the Site and Communities whenever you want.

Community Owner, believe that you may have breached these Terms we may at
our discretion take such action as we, or the Community Owner, deem

or specific Communities;

injury caused by negligence or for fraudulent misrepresentation. You have
