Technical and other limitations

We operate anti-virus and malicious software prevention measures, but we cannot guarantee that the GoodPAYE Platform will always be virus-free. You should ensure that the computer or other device you use to access the GoodPAYE Platform is protected against viruses and malicious software.

Although we will try to make sure that the GoodPAYE Platform is available at all times, sometimes you will not be able to access and use the GoodPAYE Platform due to maintenance requirements or events outside our control. We are not liable for any periods of non-availability, but we will take all steps that we reasonably can to minimise the interruption.

The GoodPAYE Platform contains content uploaded by charities for the purpose of creating their charity profile pages on the GoodPAYE Platform. You acknowledge that such content is not under our control, and we are not responsible for, and do not endorse the content of, those charity profile pages.  You must make your own independent judgment about the content on those pages.

The GoodPAYE Platform contains links to charities’ and other third parties’ websites. You acknowledge that such websites are not under our control, and we are not responsible for, and do not endorse the content of, those websites.  You must make your own independent judgment about your use of any third party websites, including (but not limited to) the terms of any privacy notice applicable to them.

You acknowledge and accept that data uploaded to the GoodPAYE Platform may be irretrievably lost or corrupted at any time, and it is your sole responsibility to make all necessary copies and backups of any data that you upload. If data uploaded to the GoodPAYE Platform is lost or corrupted, our liability in respect of such loss or corruption shall be limited to restoring the lost or corrupted data using your backups.

Subject to the above paragraph as between you and us, we own all copyright and other intellectual property rights existing in or in relation to the GoodPAYE Platform.

Subject to the above paragraphs, if and to the extent that any copyright or other intellectual property rights existing in or in relation to the GoodPAYE Platform vest in you by operation of law or otherwise, you agree to do any and all such acts and execute any and all such documents as we may reasonably request in order to assign such copyright or other intellectual property rights back to us and provide us with a waiver of moral rights.

 

Your personal information and privacy

Any and all personal data (as defined in data protection laws) (“Personal Information“) that you provide to us via the GoodPAYE Platform may be collected, stored, processed and used in accordance with our current Privacy Policy.

Liability

Nothing in these Terms of Use limits or excludes:

  • liability for any damage or loss incurred as a result of fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; or
  • any other liability that cannot be excluded or limited by law.

Subject to the above paragraph:

  • neither GoodPAYE nor you shall be liable for any special, indirect, consequential or pure economic loss, costs, damages, charges or expenses; and

General

We may assign, transfer or delegate any of our obligations or rights under these Terms of Use. We may provide information about you and your activities on the GoodPAYE Platform to any person to whom we assign, transfer or delegate our obligations or rights.  You may not assign, transfer or delegate any of your obligations or rights under these Terms of Use.

All disclaimers, indemnities and exclusions in these Terms of Use shall survive termination for any reason, as shall any other provisions of these Terms of Use that by their nature are intended to survive such termination.

Neither GoodPAYE nor you will be liable for any failure or delay in the performance of obligations on account of riots, fire, flood, earthquake, explosion, epidemics, war, strike or labour disputes (not involving the party claiming force majeure), embargo, civil or military authority, act of God, governmental action or other causes beyond our or your reasonable control and without our or your fault or negligence.

These Terms of Use are severable in that if any provision is determined to be illegal or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction such provision shall be deemed to have been deleted without affecting the remaining provisions of these Terms of Use.

The failure to exercise or delay in exercising a right or remedy provided by these Terms of Use or by law does not constitute a waiver of the right or remedy or a waiver of other rights or remedies.

These Terms of Use shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of England. GoodPAYE and you irrevocably agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
