This agreement applies as between you, (“the User”) of channeliser.com (“the Site”) and Channeliser Limited, the owner and operator of the Site. Your agreement to comply with and be bound by this agreement (the “Terms and Conditions”) is deemed to occur upon your acceptance of the same. If you do not agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions, you should stop using the Site immediately.
channeliser.com is a website that enables IT companies to become members by providing basic company information, and where they can profile their business through a series of tick boxes that define their business activities along with some free text for describing the business. Other members can then perform detailed searches to identify IT companies that match specific criteria. Members can view other company profiles and company information. Additional social functionality allows members to add more User Content to their company profiles; (such as documents, reviews, photos, videos, blogs, forums) and enables interaction between members (such as message, connect, IM, join groups). There are levels of visibility that are user defined enabling members to specify their User Content to be public or private. It is at the members discretion as to whether information is public or private. User Content that is deemed to be “public” can be exposed and viewed outside the Channeliser website (such as on search engines like Google and Bing.)
This agreement also applies to Users of the Premier Membership service. Your agreement to comply with and be bound by the terms and conditions specific to the Premier Membership service is deemed to occur upon your application to use the Premier Membership services. If you do not agree to be bound by these additional terms and conditions, you should not proceed to apply to use and you should not subscribe to use the Premier Membership services.
No part of this Site is intended to constitute a contractual offer capable of acceptance, other than your application to use the Premier Membership services which does constitute a contractual offer and the Company’s acceptance of that offer is deemed to occur upon receipt by the Company of your Subscription Payment, on occurrence of which the Premier Membership service will be made available to you.
