The Changemaker Community is meant for public discussion, so you may not actively solicit anyone’s private information or disclose confidential information. If you are approached within the community in a private manner and asked to share private information you do so at your own discretion.

You are not permitted to sell, sublicense, distribute, transmit, broadcast, commercially exploit, or otherwise transfer any right in the Changemaker Community. In addition, and without limiting the other requirements in this Community Terms of Use, you may not (directly or indirectly) use the Changemaker Community in a manner that:

  • Is in violation of any applicable law or regulation.
Certified Professionals & Accredited Partners

As stipulated in the Terms of Reference for both CPs & APs, the Community is a space for co-learning and collaboration, and you are therefore asked to abide by this spirit and not use the community to sell your services directly to other members or otherwise engage in direct marketing activities.

We review our retention periods for personal information on a regular basis. We are legally required to hold some types of information to fulfil our statutory obligations. We will hold your personal information on our systems for only as long as is necessary for the relevant activity.

Your rights

You have the right to withdraw consent to the processing of your personal data. You also have the right:

Applicable Law

This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of England and Wales, without regard to the conflict of laws provisions thereof.

Compliance with Applicable Laws

You shall comply with all applicable foreign and domestic laws, governmental regulations, ordinances, and judicial administrative orders in relation to the Community and this Agreement.

Severability

If any part of this Agreement is determined to be invalid or unenforceable by applicable law, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of this Agreement will continue in effect.

Relationship of the Parties

Both you and we agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and us as a result of this Agreement.

If you do not agree with a modification to this Agreement, you should not use the Changemaker Community.

Correction of Errors and Inaccuracies

Community content may contain typographical errors or other errors or inaccuracies and may not be complete or current. We therefore reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions and to change or update the Community content and Your Content at any time without prior notice. However, we do not guarantee the accuracy of any content, nor that any errors, inaccuracies or omissions will be corrected.

No Third-Party Beneficiaries

Nothing in this Agreement, express or implied, is intended to or shall confer upon any person or entity (other than the parties hereto) any right, benefit or remedy of any nature whatsoever under or by reason of this Agreement.

Authority

Each party represents and warrants to the other that it has full power and authority to enter into this Agreement and that it is binding upon such party and enforceable in accordance with its terms.

Entire Agreement

This Agreement is the entire agreement between us for Changemaker Community and supersedes all other proposals and agreements, whether electronic, oral or written, between us. We object to and reject any additional or different terms proposed by you, including those contained in your purchase order or acceptance. It is the express wish of both you and us that this Agreement and all related documents be drawn up in English. We might make versions of this Agreement available in languages other than English.
