The Services may contain links to other websites or resources on the Internet, and other websites or resources may contain links to the Site. You acknowledge that LBS is not responsible or liable for the content or any aspect of such third party websites and you use them at your own risk. The fact that LBS provides links to certain third party websites does not in any way constitute endorsement of or association with such websites by LBS. Furthermore, you acknowledge and agree that LBS shall not be responsible or liable for any damage or loss caused by your use of any such website or resource.

Linking to the Site

Content

You acknowledge that all Content which you may have access to as part of, or through your use of, the Services are the sole responsibility of the person from which such content originated. For example, information that donors have provided for the donor wall or that has been pulled through via tagboard.

You should be aware that Content presented to you as part of the Services may be protected by intellectual property rights which are owned by those who provide Content to London Business School (or by other persons or companies on their behalf). You may not modify, rent, lease, loan, sell, distribute or create derivative works based on this Content (either in whole or in part) unless you have been specifically told that you may do so by Sponsorcraft Ltd or by the owners of that Content, in a separate agreement.

LBS reserves the right (but shall have no obligation) to pre-screen, review, flag, filter, modify, refuse or remove any or all Content from any part of the Services.

In particular, LBS will not be responsible, or liable to any third party, for the content or accuracy of any Content posted by you or any other user of the Site.

Whenever you make use of a feature that allows you to upload content to the Site, or to make contact with other users of the Site, you must comply with the Terms. You warrant that any such contribution does comply with the Terms, and you will be liable to London Business School and indemnify London Business School for any breach of that warranty. This means you will be responsible for any loss or damage which London Business School suffers as a result of your breach of warranty.

No Content is intended to amount to advice on which you should rely. You must obtain professional or specialist advice before taking, or refraining from, any action on the basis of the Content on the Site.

LBS may suspend, withdraw, discontinue or change all or any part of the Site without notice. LBS will not be liable to you if for any reason the Site is unavailable at any time or for any period. The Services are provided "as is" and "as available" and are without warranty of any kind, express or implied, including, but not limited to, the implied warranties of title, non-infringement and fitness for a particular purpose, and any warranties implied by any course of performance or usage of trade, all of which are expressly disclaimed.

Nothing in these Terms excludes or limits LBS’s liability for death or personal injury arising from LBS’s negligence, or its fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation, or any other liability that cannot be excluded or limited by English law.

You agree not to use the Site for any commercial or business purposes and London Business School has no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.

LBS is not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if it was an obvious consequence of LBS’s breach of the Terms or if it was contemplated by you and LBS at the time we entered into this contract.

Customer service

Gift Aid

LBS may include a Gift Aid option and any such option will be subject to the additional legal terms covering this.

General legal terms

You agree that LBS may provide you with notices, including those regarding changes to the Terms, by email, regular mail, or postings on the Site or Services. If you desire to withdraw your consent to receive these electronically, you must discontinue your use of both the Site and the Services and contact LBS at lbsfund@london.edu.

LBS may transfer its rights and obligations under the Terms to another organisation, and London Business School will always notify you in writing if this happens, but this will not affect your rights or LBS’s obligations under the Terms.

You agree that if LBS does not exercise or enforce, or delays in exercising or enforcing, any legal right or remedy which is contained in the Terms (or which London Business School has the benefit of under any applicable law), this will not be taken to be a formal waiver of LBS’s rights and that those rights or remedies will still be available to LBS (and does not mean that you do not have to comply with your obligations). If LBS does waive a default by you, it will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that LBS will automatically waive any later default by you.

A person who is not a party to the Terms has no right to rely on or enforce any of the Terms.

Each of the paragraphs of the Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.

Your statutory rights as a consumer are unaffected by the Terms and you may have rights under statute additional to those granted by the Terms. If in doubt you should contact your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards Office.

London Business School will not file a copy of the contract between you and London Business School.

Where the words "in writing" appear in the Terms, this includes email. If you wish to contact London Business School in writing, or if any provision in the Terms requires you to give London Business School notice in writing, you can send this to London Business School by e-mail to lbsfund@london.edu or by post to London Business School, Regent’s Park. London, NW1 4SA.

You agree that London Business School may update the contact details it holds for you on its database and Portal platform such as address, email address or other information provided by you when using the Site, and that it may use these details for future communications and activities.

Governing Law

The Terms, and your relationship with London Business School under the Terms (including the subject-matter of the Terms and the formation of the contract, and any contractual or non-contractual dispute associated with your use of the Services), are governed by English law. You and London Business School agree that the courts of England and Wales shall have non-exclusive jurisdiction to resolve any such dispute. Notwithstanding this, you agree that London Business School shall still be allowed to apply for injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction.
