i. Account registration - Full use of Our Website as a Member requires users to open an account and complete the registration process by providing certain information about themselves including details and proof of a recognised disability after which they must register a username and password. Each person or organisation may only register once, have one account and cannot change their Member ID. A Member’s full use of the Website only becomes valid once We have approved registration and We reserve the right to lawfully refuse registration which is exercised using Our sole discretion. Either party to this agreement is free to cancel the Membership at any time.

ii. Cancellation within 14 days of signing up - Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013. Under these regulations, if you are a consumer (i.e. not acting as a business) you have the right to cancel within 14 days of TIV accepting your application. In order to do so cancellation must be made in writing or by fax or by email to TIV. If you request an immediate start to your membership service then you may forfeit some or all of these rights to cancel and you may be liable for all or some of the costs of the services provided prior to cancellation. If you do not request an immediate start to the service then We will not activate your account for 14 days after acceptance of your application. 

iii. Cancellation after 14 days of signing up – You can cancel your membership at any time by emailing us at admin@thisisvisibility.com .

iv. Members are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of their username and password and for all use and activities under their account. We will not be liable for any indirect or consequential loss or damage whatsoever resulting from a Member’s disclosure of their username and/or password.

v. Members are liable for the accuracy of the information they submit in their application and are also responsible for making sure that their account information is correct and always up-to-date and must immediately let Us know about any information changes (for example a change of email address) by logging into their  account and making the changes on the dashboard or submitting a request at admin@thisisvisibility.com . We may ask You to update Your information from time to time and not doing so upon request will result in the suspension of Your Membership. We may also change registration requirements from time to time and reserve the right to ask Members to change their usernames and/or password at any time to protect that account.

vi. Members who forget or lose their password or account details must follow the “Forgotten Password” process details of which are located at www.thisisvisibility.com .

vii. Members must not in any way transfer their registration/account or obligations or the discount codes given to them and We advise Members not to allow anyone else to use their account without the Member’s express knowledge and permission. Members also specifically confirm that they will:

  • Notify Us immediately of any unauthorised use, including any unauthorised use of their registration/account with the Website or any other known or suspected breach of security and

  • Use their reasonable efforts to immediately stop any such misuse.

viii. Members who wish to cancel their account should contact us using admin@thisisvisibility.com and must immediately stop using any discount codes.

ix. For information about how we collect and use personal data please see our Privacy Policy.

e)   Payment – As soon as a Member is approved their membership fee becomes due immediately              unless there are any special limited time membership fee offers specified on the website in which          case the payment terms of such offers will prevail.

 

f)    Members must not share, provide, display or otherwise make offers available to other people or            organisations, including, for example, providing them on social networks or online forums. This            includes offers which are sent to Members via emails or other communications.

 

g)   Any Member who uses a Seller’s offer is then redirected (via a link) to that Seller so the Member            can take advantage of the offer by making a purchase via a contractually binding transaction. Any        decision to enter into such a transaction is the sole responsibility of the Member and You are                advised to read and understand the individual Seller’s terms and conditions before finalising the          transaction.

 

h)   All transactions which take place whilst using Our Website will be completed directly with the                applicable Seller who is responsible for the security, completion and fulfilment of that transaction.        Members enter into a separate agreement which has nothing to do with Us and Members                      specifically confirm that We cannot be held liable in this regard. Payments are made directly to              the Seller who will deal with all cancellations, refunds or issues. Since We are not responsible for            and are never a party to any transaction (which is made directly between any Member or Seller)            we do not have any legal obligations which apply to those Sellers. Your use of the Member’s area          of this Website confirms Your acceptance of this.

 

i)    All offers that We display are as provided directly by the Seller and We are not responsible for any       errors, including when an offer is not working, out of date or is incorrect. Sellers can add, amend or       withdraw their offer at any time and without giving Users any notice. Transactions are tracked using       cookies – please refer to our Cookie Policy and also our Privacy Policy to see how personal data is         used.

 

j)    If an offer does not work, Members should contact Us using the Help facility                                              at admin@thisisvisibility.com .

​​​i. unless you use the Website and enter the correct offer/code at checkout

ii. retrospectively (after you have completed a transaction).

 

 

l)    Limitation of Liability (Members) - for the avoidance of any doubt, if the law allows We will not be          held responsible for any direct or indirect loss, incidental or consequential damage, or loss                    (economic or otherwise), any punitive or exemplary damages, any loss of data, profits, reputation          or goodwill or business opportunities or contact, however it arises, including out of negligence            relating to or in any way connected to the website or its use. In the unlikely event any Member has        any right, claim or action against us, then, in so far as the law allows, the Member’s claim will be            limited to the sum of £100.

 

m)  Without limiting any other remedies available to us, we may terminate, suspend or limit any                  use/registration/account at our absolute discretion, either with or without notice, particularly,                where we suspect that you have engaged or are about to engage in, or have been in any way                involved in or linked to, breaches of any of the Terms and Conditions or security.  If we do not act          upon any breach immediately, you should not assume we have waived any rights as to                            enforceability or to seek redress, unless we have expressly stated that in writing.

 

n)   Each Member agrees to indemnify and hold This is Visibility and its employees and agents                    harmless from and against all liabilities, damages, losses, costs and other expenses, including any        legal fees, known and unknown, arising from or in any way connected with a breach of these                  Terms and Conditions by or connected with that of the Member or their use of the website
