Failure to agree to be bound by these Terms shall mean that no access or use of this Website is permitted
This Introduction section and the content of Part One of the Terms will apply to each visitor (a "Visitor") who accesses or wishes to use the Website. Each Visitor agrees to remain legally bound by such Terms (as may be amended by the Website Owner from time to time) for as long as either they remain a Visitor of the Website and wish to use the Website, or unless the Website Owner or the Website earlier terminates, suspends or otherwise limits access to the Website or to any part thereof, as it may at its discretion consider appropriate.
In addition, this introduction section and the content of Part Two of these Terms will also apply to each person who wishes to register and use the enhanced facilities available on the Website to registered and logged in clients of the Website Owner (an “Authorised User”). Each Authorised User agrees to remain legally bound by such Terms (as may be amended by the Website Owner from time to time) for as long as either they remain an Authorised User of the Website and wish to use the Website, or unless the Website Owner or the Website earlier terminates, suspends or otherwise limits access to the Website or to any part thereof, as it may at its discretion consider appropriate.
These Terms will be governed by and construed in accordance with English law and shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
In the event that any provision in these Terms is determined to be unenforceable or invalid, such provision shall be severed and the remaining provisions shall be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by the applicable law.
The Website Owner reserves the right to amend these Terms or any part thereof at any time and without notice, save that such Terms shall take effect once accessible on the Website.

1.2 In relation to the posting of any content or material by a visitor or Authorised User to the Website (“Material”), or by the Website Owner on behalf of such visitor or Authorised User, the Visitor or Authorised User providing such Material shall ensure that the Material complies with the following standards:
(a) All information and activities must be legal, decent and honest (in terms of English law);
(b) Data protection legislation within English law must be adhered to in order that the collection of personal information is not traded or disclosed illegally;
(c) all applicable trading standards, laws and regulations;
(d) the Material shall not bring the Website Owner or any of its principals within its business into disrepute; nor so as to breach any regulatory rule code or other regulation by which the Website Owner or any of its principals may from time to time be bound.

1.5 Each Visitor and Authorised User waives any right to bring any claim or action against the Website Owners for any loss, damage or injury arising from use of the Website or any Material from the Website or from these Terms.

(b) Each Visitor and Authorised User accepts the Website "AS IS" with any faults or failings and without any representation, warranty or guarantee whatsoever, express or implied, including without limitation any implied warranty of accuracy, completeness, quality, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose or non-infringement;
(c) In no event will any Website Owner be liable for any injury, loss, claim, damages or any special, incidental, consequential (which expression includes loss of profits or goodwill) , exemplary or punitive losses or damages of any kind arising out of or in connection with any Visitor’s or Authorised User’s access to, or use of the Website, any Material or any other information thereon, or any goods, materials or services available therefrom, whether based in contract, tort and whether negligent or otherwise, even if any Website Owner has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Nothing in these Terms shall exclude or limit the liability of the Website Owner for any personal injury or death caused by negligence of the Website Owner, its principals, directors officers or staff, nor any responsibility for fraudulent misrepresentation;
(d) In the event that any exclusion of liability is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unlawful, but that liability may be lawfully limited, the Website Owner’s aggregate total liability to any Visitor or Authorised User for all such damages and losses shall be limited to the sum of £5,000.
2.1 Each Authorised User must comply and adhere to Part Two of these Terms in order to access and use any of the enhanced facilities of the Website specific to the client in question accessible by the Authorised User by log on and password (collectively referred to as “the Client’s Space”).

2.5 For the avoidance of doubt, the attention of each Authorised User is drawn to the terms of Part One, paragraph 1.6, which applies in relation to all matters contained in Part Two, as well as in relation to Part One.
