User Agreement

User Agreement

    This User Agreement sets out the terms between you and AWIN Limited (“AWIN”) under which you may access the intranet and software platform operated by AWIN (the “Interface”). This User Agreement applies to all users of the Interface (each a “User” or “You”, collectively “Users”) and constitutes a legally binding agreement between each User individually and AWIN. If you, the User do not accept the terms of this User Agreement, you cannot use the Interface.

    By clicking the ‘Step Two’ button during the registration process you accept the terms and conditions of this User Agreement.

    1.         Your User Account

    1.1      When you register on the Website you will be allocated a personal account on the Interface, which you can access by entering your username and password (“User Account”).

    1.2      The User Account is for a single User only. AWIN will not permit you to share your username and password with any other person nor with multiple Users on a network. Responsibility for the security and confidentiality of any passwords issued rests with you. AWIN will not be liable for any losses or damages suffered by you due to the disclosure of any User Account passwords.

    1.3      All User Accounts must be registered with your own name and a valid personal email address that you access regularly so that moderation emails can be sent to you. User Accounts registered with someone else's email address, or with temporary email addresses, may be closed without notice. AWIN may require Users to revalidate their User Account if AWIN believes they have been using an invalid email address.

    1.4     You will be responsible and liable for all activities occurring under your User Account. If you suspect that a third party has gained unauthorised access to access data, you must inform DWL immediately by sending an e-mail to compliance@awin.com or such other e-mail address as may be notified to you from time to time.

    2.           Provision and use of services and the interface

    2.1     For the duration of this User Agreement AWIN grants the User the revocable, non-exclusive, non-transferable and non-sub-licensable right to use the Interface for own business purposes in accordance with this User Agreement and the respective description of services.

AWIN will however, use commercially reasonable efforts to control the display of Content that is restricted by the Privacy Settings to other Users in accordance with the Privacy Settings you have chosen.

    2.6      If you submit Content AWIN cannot guarantee that other Users of the Interface will not use the Content you have submitted. Therefore, if you have Content that you would like to keep confidential and/or do not want others to use, do not submit it to an Interactive Service or to any other part of the Interface. AWIN is not responsible for the misuse or misappropriation by other Users of the Interface of any Content submitted by you to an Interactive Service.

    2.7      Please note that certain Content which you may choose to submit to AWIN’s Interactive Services or to any other part of this Interface may reveal personal information about you (“Personal Data”). Any Personal Data is provided voluntarily and with your consent for its use, storage, disclosure and possible transfer out of the EU.

    2.8      Prior to submitting Content to the Interface, you must consider and decide, yourself, the extent to which you wish to reveal Personal Data about yourself to the large community of other Users of this Interface, and to AWIN, and you must not communicate any Content which could be harmful to you if disclosed, processed or published in any way.
