ACCEPTABLE USE POLICY
This Acceptable Use Policy sets out the content standards that apply when you upload content to our website, make contact with other users on our website, link to our website, or interact with the website in any other way.
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 minors in any way;
to send, knowingly receive, upload, download, use or re-use any material which does not comply with our content standards below;
to transmit, or procure the sending of, any unsolicited or unauthorised advertising or promotional material or any other form of similar solicitation (spam);
to knowingly transmit any data, send or upload any material that contains viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time-bombs, keystroke loggers, spyware, adware or any other harmful programs or similar computer code designed to adversely affect the operation of any computer software or hardware.

any software used in the provision of our website; or
any equipment or network or software owned or used by any third party.
We may from time to time provide interactive services on the website, including, without limitation:
(jointly the “interactive services”).
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 website, 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 website, 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 a minor 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 fool proof. Minors 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.
These Content Standards apply to any and all material which you contribute to our website (“Contribution”), and to any interactive services associated with it.
The Content Standards must be complied with in spirit as well as to the letter. The Standards apply to each part of any Contribution as well as to its whole.
We will determine, in our absolute discretion, whether a Contribution breaches the Content Standards.
A Contribution must:
be accurate (where it states facts);
be genuinely held (where it states opinions);
comply with the law applicable in England and Wales and in any country from which it is posted.
A Contribution must not:
be defamatory of any person;
be obscene, offensive, hateful or inflammatory;
promote sexually explicit material;
promote discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation or age;
infringe any copyright, database right or trade mark of any other person;
be likely to deceive any person;
breach any legal duty owed to a third party, such as a contractual duty or a duty of confidence;
promote any illegal activity;
be in contempt of court;
be threatening, abuse or invade another’s privacy, or cause annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety;
be likely to harass, upset, embarrass, alarm or annoy any other person;
impersonate any person, or misrepresent your identity or affiliation with any person;
give the impression that the Contribution emanates from us or our company, if this is not the case;
advocate, promote, incite any party to commit, or assist any unlawful or criminal act such as (by way of example only) copyright infringement or computer misuse;
contain a statement which you know or believe, or have reasonable grounds for believing, that members of the public to whom the statement is, or is to be, published are likely to understand as a direct or indirect encouragement or other inducement to the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism;
contain any advertising or promote any services or web links to other websites.

immediate, temporary or permanent withdrawal of your right to use our website;
immediate, temporary or permanent removal of any Contribution uploaded by you to our website;

legal proceedings against you for reimbursement of all costs on an indemnity basis (including, but not limited to, reasonable administrative and legal costs) resulting from the breach;

7. In respect of each Sleep Programme created by The Sleep Chief for the Client, the Client agrees that it shall not provide the Sleep Programme to any third party who is not a Client.
