The Legal bits

Welcome to Collude, a platform for promoting collaboration between individuals and organisations. To protect your own interests,
you must read and understand the following important Terms before using Collude. If you are uncertain as to your rights under
these Terms or you want any explanation about them please e-mail hello@collude.cloud. These current consolidated Terms of
Use were published on 23 Aug 2018.

      • 1. Introduction

        • We are Collude Ltd, a company registered in England and Wales under company number 11510123, whose registered office is at Cervantes House, 5 – 9 Headstone Road, Harrow, Middlesex, England, HA1 1PD.
        • These terms and conditions of use (the Terms) explain how you may use the Collude service. You should read these Terms carefully before using Collude. By applying to register for an account on Collude,
          you agree to be bound by these Terms and the documents referred to in them. If you do not agree with or accept any of these Terms, you should stop using Collude immediately. If you have any questions about Collude, please contact us by email at hello@collude.cloud.
        • Any organisation using Collude to collaborate with a group of individual users is referred to as a “Network Owner”. Groups of individual users on Collude set up and administered by Network Owners are referred
          to as “Networks”. When we refer to “Content” in these Terms, that means any content or messages posted by other users (including Network Owners) on Collude. References to “Contributions” are to uploads,
          profiles, posts, messages and other contributions submitted by you by means of Collude.
        • Collude is a platform. We cannot and do not vet the accuracy of all Content on Collude. We do not make any promises regarding the quality, nature of level of activity of any other user of Collude, including
          any Network Owner.
        • We do not own, operate or control any of the services, Networks, or events administered or promoted on Collude. We allow Network Owners to manage and control their interactions with individual users.
          Network Owners, not us, are responsible for ensuring that the collaboration, communication and promotion of products and services are carried out in a lawful, correct manner. To the extent that you enter
          into any arrangements by means of Collude for joining Network, attending an event, or purchasing any products or services, your relationship is with the Network Owner. If you have any issues or
          questions regarding any activity of a Network Owner, please contact the Network Owner direct.
      • 2. Changes to these Terms, and Additional Terms

        • We may revise these Terms at any time. The most current version of the Terms, which will always be at [Collude.cloud/terms], will govern our relationship with you. We will try to notify you of any important
          changes, for example via your Collude account area, or an email to the email associated with your Collude account. By continuing to access or use Collude after those revisions become effective, you
          agree to be bound by the revised Terms.
        • Wemay add to or replace these Terms with additional terms and conditions (‘Additional Terms’) which relate to specific Content or Collude features or services. Additional Terms will be made available on relevant
          pages of Collude. You should therefore check Collude from time to time to see whether any Additional Terms apply to you. Additional Terms will prevail to the extent there is any conflict or inconsistency
          with any other of these Terms.
        • Additional terms [Collude/terms/#NetworkOwnerTermsofuse] are applicable to Network Owners, which are agreed to as a condition of a Network Owner using Collude to collaborate with individual users.

      unlawful processing or accidental loss, destruction or damage and the nature of the data to be protected, having
      regard to the state of technological development and the cost of implementing any measures (those measures may include,
      where appropriate, pseudonymising and encrypting Personal Data, ensuring confidentiality, integrity, availability

      a version of the Network Platform Services without use of the processor to which the Network Owner objects; or  (ii)
      terminate the provision of the Network Platform Services to the Network Owner without liability. Collude confirms
      that it has entered or (as the case may be) will enter with the third-party processor into a written agreement substantially
      on that third party’s standard terms of business or incorporating terms which are substantially similar to those
      set out in this clause 3. As between the Network Owner and Collude, Collude shall remain fully liable for all acts
      or omissions of any third-party processor appointed by it pursuant to this clause 3which would constitute a breach
      of this Agreement if committed by Collude. The Network Owner hereby confirms that it has no objections in respect
      of any processor listed at [collude.cloud/processors].Either party may, at any time on not less than 30 days’ notice,
      revise this clause 3by replacing it with any applicable controller to processor standard clauses or similar terms
      forming part of an applicable certification scheme (which shall apply when replaced by attachment to this agreement).
