This page, together with any other documents referred to in it, tells you the terms on which you may access and use this website (our site).

Collecting personal information is necessary in order to make effective use of our information technology resources and to promote our aims, such as by communicating with our supporters and service users and providing interactive services.  Our Data Protection, Privacy and Cookie Policy is shown below.

Please read these terms of use carefully before you start to use our site, as they apply to your use of our site immediately.  By using our site, you confirm that you accept these terms and that you agree to comply with them.  If you do not agree to these terms of use, please do not use or access our site.

We may change these terms of website use at any time by amending this page.  If we do this, we will draw this to your attention by posting a note on our homepage.  If any changes are made, please read them as they are binding on you.


Accessing Our Site

Our site is made available to you free of charge.  We do not guarantee that our site, or any content on it, will always be available or be uninterrupted.

You may use our website only for lawful purposes.  You may not use our website:


  • In any way that breaches any applicable local, national or international law or regulation.


  • In any way that is unlawful or fraudulent, or has any unlawful or fraudulent purpose or effect.


  • For the purpose of harming or attempting to harm any person in any way.


We reserve the right to block your access to our website at our sole discretion.


Interactive Services

We may from time to time provide interactive services on our site, including, without limitation:


  • Chat rooms;
  • Bulletin boards.


Where we do provide any interactive service, we will provide clear information to you about the kind of service offered, if it is moderated and what form of moderation is used (including whether it is human or technical).

We will do our best to assess any possible risks for users (and in particular, for children) from third parties when they use any interactive service provided on our site, and we will decide in each case whether it is appropriate to use moderation of the relevant service (including what kind of moderation to use) in the light of those risks. However, we are under no obligation to oversee, monitor or moderate any interactive service we provide on our site, and we expressly exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any interactive service by a user in contravention of our content standards, whether the service is moderated or not.

The use of any of our interactive services by children is subject to the consent of their parent or guardian. We advise parents who permit their children to use an interactive service that it is important that they communicate with their children about their safety online, as moderation is not foolproof. Children who are using any interactive service should be made aware of the potential risks to them.

Where we do moderate an interactive service, we will normally provide you with a means of contacting the moderator, should a concern or difficulty arise.
