We are also not liable for any harm, damages, expenses, loss of profits or opportunities that are caused through the use or reliance on our services, regardless of cause.

The Internet is a public network and as a result we do not guarantee that any communication or use of our services is secure or protected from interception by unauthorised individuals.

Where a business is the registered account holder, these terms apply to all representatives from that business. All account subscribers are responsible for activity on their account. All chargeable activities on a subscribers account will be invoiced & charged in accordance with the terms agreed.

All registered users are responsible for ensuring that they are authorised by their employer to use the services of AIRDAT AND / OR THE PARTNERED TRAINING COMPANIES FEATURED ON THE SITE, as all chargeable activities will be invoiced and charged to the relevant companies EITHER DIRECTLY BY AIRDAT OR THE PARTNERED TRAINING COMPANY. Failure to ensure such authorisation is obtained will result in the individual becoming personally liable for the outstanding costs/fees; and an additional fee for the recovery of the debt owed.

Any account names or network addresses that are assigned to you are borrowed and remain our property.

You will abide by all applicable laws and agree to indemnify and hold us harmless from all liabilities and expenses related to any violation of this agreement. In no case will we be held responsible for the actions or omissions of any subscriber or other individual that accesses our services.

We take customer privacy seriously and do not track the content entered into the AIRDAT system unless required by law.

Should any personal information be inadvertently gathered during this routine monitoring it will be considered confidential and fall under the terms and conditions of the section labelled ‘Your Privacy & Security’

Payment for services is due as per the terms of your invoice, with invoices normally issued on a monthly basis with 7 day payment terms via BACS or CHAPS into the nominated AIRDAT account. Accounts that are more than 14 days past due will be suspended until payment has been received. Once an account is one month past due it will be terminated and subject to reasonable collection fees. Returned cheques and non-sufficient funds for pre-authorized debit are subject to a £25 processing fee. Fees are as agreed between AIRDAT and its user(s) and can be adjusted at any time by AIRDAT, upon the provision of 1 months notice. Invoices are sent via email only. If you require posted, hard copies, additional charges will apply to cover fees and additional work involved.

Unless terminated, your account will remain open. You may terminate your account at the end of its term by contacting us.

This document contains the entire agreement, superseding any other agreements or understandings, between you (the subscriber) and us (AIRDAT Ltd). Our failure to enforce any provision of this agreement is not a waiver of any right. Should a court decide that any provision in this agreement is unenforceable, that decision does not affect the remaining provisions of the agreement. These terms & conditions shall be governed and construed by English law. The subscriber agrees not to sue AIRDAT Ltd other than in the English Courts being the Courts having jurisdiction in the place where the Provider carries on business. The Customer agrees to submit to the jurisdiction of the English Courts but acknowledges that the Provider may bring an action elsewhere where the Customer carries on its business or has assets
