Accessing the site
- Access to public areas of The Site is made available free of charge. Membership is available [free of charge].
- We do not guarantee that the Site, or any content on it, will always be available or be uninterrupted. Access to the Site is permitted on a temporary basis. We may suspend, withdraw, discontinue or change all or any part of Site without notice. We will not be liable to you if for any reason the Site is unavailable at any time or for any period.
- We may update the Site from time to time, and may change the content at any time. However, please note that any of the content on the Site may be out of date at any given time, and we are under no obligation to update it.
- Other Members may update their Member profiles on the Site from time to time. However, please note that any of the content on any Member’s profile may be out of date at any given time.
- We do not guarantee that the Site, or any content on it, will be free from errors or omissions.
- You are responsible for making all arrangements necessary for you to have access to the Site.
- You are also responsible for ensuring that all persons who access the Site through your internet connection are aware of these Terms and other applicable terms and conditions, and that they comply with them.
No reliance on information
- The content on the Site is provided for general information only. It is not intended to amount to advice on which you should rely. You must obtain professional or specialist advice before taking, or refraining from, any action on the basis of the content on the Site.
- Although we make reasonable efforts to update the information on the Site, we make no representations, warranties or guarantees, whether express or implied, that the content on the Site is accurate, complete or up-to-date.
- If you order any Services from us, such Order is subject to acceptance by us.
- We will supply the Services to you from the date set out in the Order for the period of time set out in the Order.
- We will make every effort to complete the Services on time. However, any such dates shall be estimates only and time for performance by us shall not be of the essence of these Terms.

- While we may send you an automatic email confirming receipt of an Order, this does not amount to acceptance of such Order. Acceptance does not occur (and therefore an Order is not binding on us) until is it expressly accepted by us.
- It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Services may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of our Order confirmation process so that, where the Services’ correct price is more or less than our stated price, we will contact you to tell you and for your instructions. If the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Services to you at the incorrect (lower) price.

Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office or equivalent. Nothing in these Terms will affect these legal rights.
