1. INFORMATION ABOUT US
1.2 Contacting us. You may contact us by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you wish to give us formal notice of any matter in accordance with these Terms of supply of services, please contact us via email.
2. USE OF OUR SITE
2.1 Your use of our site is governed by our terms of website use together with our Acceptable Use Policy. Please take the time to read these, as they include important terms which apply to you.
3. HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
4. THE CONTRACT BETWEEN US
When you apply for one of our Services, you are offering to buy Services in accordance with these Terms. Your offer is deemed accepted when we confirm acceptance to you via your dashboard and email and the contract (Contract) between us is formed at that date (Start Date). We do not have to accept your offer, and we do not have to give a reason why we do not accept it. These Terms apply to the Contract to the exclusion of any other terms you may seek to impose or incorporate, or which are implied by trade, custom, practice or course of dealing.
5. MONEY LAUNDERING
5.1 We must comply with the Money Laundering Regulations 2007, the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002, and the Terrorism Act 2000. These require us to carry out identity verification checks before we may provide any Services. We may request and retain from you such information and documentation as needed for this compliance and/or make searches of appropriate databases and to report. If we cannot adequately confirm your identification we reserve the right to refuse to provide any Services to you.
5.2 We have a duty under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 to report to the Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) if we know, or have reasonable cause to suspect, that you or anyone connected with your business is or has been involved in money laundering. Failure on our part to make a report where we have knowledge, or reasonable grounds for suspicion, would constitute a criminal offence. If this happens, we may not be able to inform you that a disclosure has been made or of the reasons for it because the law prohibits ‘tipping-off’.
6. OUR SERVICES
6.1 We shall supply the Services to you in accordance with these Terms, using reasonable care and skill. Where we need to change the Services in a non-material way, such as to comply with an applicable law, we shall inform you of such change. We shall use all reasonable endeavours to meet any performance dates specified to you, but any such dates shall be estimates only and time shall not be of the essence for performance of the Services. We have no liability or duty to check whether the information you provide is complete, accurate and/or current.
6.2 If our performance under a Contract is impaired as result of any act or omission of you (Default), then we have the right, without limiting our other rights and remedies, to stop work on your Contract until you have remedied the Default to our satisfaction, and to rely on the Default to relieve us from the performance of any of our obligations to the extent the Default prevents or delays our performance of any of our obligations. We shall not be liable for any costs or losses sustained or incurred by you arising directly or indirectly from our inability to carry out our obligations under the Contract where there is a Default. You shall indemnify us on demand for any costs or losses sustained or incurred by us arising directly or indirectly from the Default.
