These terms apply in different ways depending on what type of user you are, as follows:

The amount and types of Impact4All.org Content that you can view, and the platforms on which you can view Impact4All.org Content, depend on what type of user you are and what type of subscription to the tender platform (if any) you have.

3. Privacy Policy and Registration to Tender Platform

On registration, you must provide Impact4All.org with accurate, complete registration information and it is your responsibility to update and maintain changes to that information on the applicable Impact4All.org registration or subscription pages. Impact4All.org is entitled to rely on any information you provide to us.

Each registration is for a single user only. On registration, you will choose a user name and password (“ID”).

We recommend that you do not enable this feature on any computer that is or may be used by anyone other than you to prevent unauthorized access by third parties to both your subscription details and features of Impact4All.org personal to you.

4. Personal Subscription Services and Temporary Access Passes

We offer subscription services through Impact4all.org and recommend that you read our Frequently Asked Questions (Wajdan link to FAQ page)for more details and before purchasing a subscription.

Impact4All.org reserves the right to vary the amount of content and types of service that it makes available to different categories of user. If you are an Impact4All.org tender platform, subscriber, any significant reduction in the scope of your subscription will take effect only after we have given you at least 60 days’ notice, and will apply from the date of your next payment following that 60-day period. This does not apply where a type of content or service intended for Premium subscriptions is made available to non subscribers.

Contract formation: Impact4All.org will try to process your tender platform subscription promptly but does not guarantee that your subscription will be activated by any specified time. By submitting your payment and other subscription details, you are making an offer to us to buy a subscription. Your offer will only be accepted by us and a contract formed when we have successfully verified your payment details and email address, at which point we will provide you with access to your subscription. Impact4All.org reserves the right to reject any offer in its discretion, for any or no reason.

Payment details: when you purchase a tender platform subscription, you must provide us with complete and accurate payment information. By submitting payment details you promise that you are entitled to purchase a subscription using those payment details. If we do not receive payment authorization or any authorization is subsequently cancelled, we may immediately terminate or suspend your access to your tender platform subscription. In suspicious circumstances we may contact the issuing bank/payment provider and/or law enforcement authorities or other appropriate third parties. If you are entitled to a refund under these terms and conditions we will credit that refund to the card or other payment method you used to submit payment, unless it has expired in which case we will contact you.

Pricing: the Impact4All.org tender platform subscription price will be made clear to you on our sign-up pages or otherwise during the sign-up process and may vary from time to time or by country. You agree to pay the fees at the rates notified to you at the time you purchase your subscription. For certain subscriptions you can take out either an annual or monthly (or other frequency we offer) subscription. Other subscription services may only require a one-off payment. You can also take out any other fixed term or payment frequency that we may offer from time to time. The currency in which your subscription is payable will be specified during the order process, depending on the service and your country of residence. Eligibility for any discounts is ascertained at the time you subscribe and cannot be changed during the term of your subscription. We will always tell you in advance of any increase in the price of your subscription and offer you an opportunity to cancel it if you do not wish to pay the new price.

Trial subscriptions: where we provide a trial subscription, we will inform you of the full subscription price that is payable after the trial period. After the trial, your subscription will renew automatically at the full subscription price unless you cancel your subscription before the end of the trial. To cancel your subscription during the trial please go to subscriptions.impact4all.org and follow the simple cancellation instructions.

Please note that no more than one trial subscription per subscriber is allowed in any twelve-month period. We reserve the right to cancel any trial subscription immediately, without refund, if we become aware that the subscriber has already had another trial subscription in the previous twelve months.

Taxes: Impact4All.org registered for VAT in Germany under 40 236 24619 for European Union (EU) countries. We also have some non-EU indirect tax registrations.

Unless otherwise indicated, prices stated on our website are inclusive of any applicable value added tax (VAT) or other sales taxes. The breakdown of any applicable VAT payable with your order is indicated on the invoice you will receive with your purchase.

 

Pricing errors: if we incorrectly state a price to you whether online or otherwise, we are not obliged to provide you with a subscription at that price, even if we have mistakenly accepted your offer to buy a tender platform subscription at that price, and we reserve the right to subsequently notify you of any pricing error. If we do this, you may cancel the subscription without any obligation to us and we will refund you any money you have paid us in full, or you may pay the correct price. If you refuse to exercise either of these choices then we may cancel your subscription and will refund you any money you have paid us in full. We will always act in good faith in determining whether a genuine pricing error has occurred.

Other costs: in addition to the tender platform subscription fee you are charged, certain banks and credit card issuers will charge a foreign transaction fee on transactions which take place abroad or in a foreign currency. The majority of payments for subscriptions we take by card are processed in the Germany therefore please check with your bank or credit card issuer to find out if such charges will be applied to you; Impact4All.org is not responsible for any such charges. You are also responsible for paying any internet connection or telecommunications charges that you may incur by accessing Impact4All.org or using the services available on it. For example, if you use any of our mobile services then your network operator may charge you for data or messaging services.

 

5. Renewal and Cancellation of Personal Subscriptions

Renewals: If you chose to pay monthly, your subscription will continue until you tell us that you no longer wish to receive it, in which case you will stop paying the monthly fees. We will notify you at least 14 days in advance of any changes to the price in your subscription that will apply upon next monthly renewal. Please see the “How to cancel” section below for details of how to cancel your monthly subscription. If you chose to pay annually, at least 14 days before each renewal you will be sent a reminder notice stating the rate that will apply for the renewal period. Unless you notify us before the end of your annual tender platform subscription period that you no longer wish to receive it, your annual tender platform subscription will renew for another year. We will charge the subscription using the same card or other payment method that you previously used.

Initial cancellation period: Depending on the type of subscription you have, you may have a right to cancel your subscription within a limited period after placing your order.

Subsequent cancellation of your subscription: Except as set out in the previous section, you do not have any right to cancel your subscription or any part of it until the end of your then current subscription period. Although you may notify us of your intention to cancel at any time, such notice will only take effect at the end of your then current tender platform subscription period, and you will not receive a refund (except in the limited circumstances set out in these terms).

How to cancel: You may notify us of your wish to cancel your subscription by contacting our Customer Services team at subscriptions@impact4all.org .

Cancellations by us: Impact4All.org reserves the right to suspend or terminate your subscription if you breach these terms and conditions, with or without notice and without further obligation to you. We may also suspend or terminate your subscription if we are prevented from providing services to you by circumstances beyond our control. If we terminate your subscription for any reason and/or permanently any services on the tender platform for Impact4All.org, then, unless there are exceptional circumstances, we will provide you with a pro rata refund to your credit card. This means that we will refund you with any amounts that you have paid us in advance that relate to any remaining and unexpired period of your subscription.

You will retain ownership of the copyright in any of your UGC that you or we publish on Impact4All.org so you are free to re-use it as you wish. You agree that if you post UGC to a Forum then you are granting Impact4All.org the right (but not an obligation) unlimited in time to publish, re-use, archive, modify, delete or commercially exploit that UGC in whole or in part as we see fit, whether on Impact4All.org or otherwise, without any requirement to pay you for this and with or without attribution to you. This means that you grant us a worldwide, non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free licence to use any UGC you publish in whole or in part in any manner and for any purpose whatsoever and without further obligation to you.

·        only publish UGC that is your original content and will not infringe the copyright or other rights of any third party when publishing UGC.

·        not post, link to or otherwise publish any UGC containing any form of advertising or promotion for goods and services or any spam or other form of unsolicited communication.

The Forums contain UGC submitted by users over whom Impact4All.org has no control so we cannot therefore guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of any UGC. Some users may not behave properly and may post UGC that is misleading, untrue or offensive.

It is not possible for Impact4All.org to fully monitor all UGC published on Impact4All.org but where we have received notice of any UGC that is potentially misleading, untrue, offensive, unlawful, infringes third party rights or is potentially in breach of these terms and conditions, then we will review that UGC, decide whether to remove it from Impact4All.org and act accordingly. This may include banning a user from participation in UGC on Impact4All.org.

Our moderation and community team may contact you from time to time regarding your comments. Comments, including those made under a pseudonym, can be linked to your Impact4All.org account by Impact4All.org.

For more guidance about commenting on Impact4All.org, please see our Commenting FAQ. If you believe that any UGC published on Impact4All.org infringes any legal rights that you may have or is not allowed under these terms and conditions, please notify us immediately with specific details by contacting us at legal@impact4all.org.

8. Third Party Sites and Services

Impact4All.org may contain links to other Internet websites or online and mobile services provided by independent third parties, including websites of our advertisers and sponsors (what we call “Third Party Sites”), either directly or through frames. Third Party Sites may be co-branded with Impact4All.org and so include Impact4All.org trade marks.

It is your decision whether you purchase or use any third party products or services made available on or via Third Party Sites and you should read Section 9 below carefully. Our Privacy Policy does not apply to Third Party Sites.

Impact4All.org contains advertising and sponsorship. Advertisers and sponsors are responsible for ensuring that material submitted for inclusion on Impact4All.org complies with international and national law. Impact4All.org is not responsible for any error or inaccuracy in advertising or sponsorship material.

Copyright in any software that is made available for download from Impact4All.org belongs to Impact4All.org or its suppliers.

Do not install or use any of this software unless you agree to such licence agreement. FT is not responsible for any technical or other issues that may happen if you download third party software.

9. Our Responsibilities To You

A summary of what this section means: this section is important and you should read it carefully. It makes clear to what extent, if any, Impact4All.org accepts responsibility (liability) to you for your use of Impact4All.org or the Impact4All.org Content or in respect of any third party products or services that we refer to or link to on Impact4All.org. Unless you are a personal tender platform subscriber to Impact4All.org or have a temporary access pass, we accept no financial responsibility to you arising from your use of Impact4All.org or any Impact4All.org Content. If you are a personal subscriber to Impact4All.org or have a temporary access pass, we limit our financial responsibility to you arising from your use of Impact4All.org or the Impact4All.org Content to the price you paid for your subscription or temporary access pass.

In no circumstances do we accept responsibility for your use of Third Party Sites or in respect of any Third Party Products. By Third Party Sites we mean websites, online or mobile services provided by third parties, including websites of advertisers and sponsors that may appear on Impact4All.org. By Third Party Products we mean products or services provided by third parties.

Although this means that we accept very little in the way of financial responsibility for your use of Impact4All.org and the Impact4All.org Content, we think this is fair on the basis that you can view certain content and services free-of-charge, and the cost of a subscription or temporary access pass for additional access rights to the tender platform is relatively inexpensive. It is not commercially possible for us to accept more responsibility for your use of Impact4All.org than set out in this Section 9 taking into account that we permit you to use Impact4All.org for no or a relatively inexpensive cost.
