Thank you for visiting the CUCST blog. We hope you find it useful, informative and inspiring. If you have any questions or reactions to anything on the blog, you can either leave a comment on a relevant page, or if it’s a more general or technical issue, please email us at info@CUCST.org.uk
We do have a few rules of conduct about the blog. We want everyone to get involved and interact on these pages, and we’re very happy to hear your views – even criticisms – but please moderate your language and avoid any threatening or derogatory remarks or behaviour while taking part in discussions. Arguing your case is fine, but please be respectful and tolerant and bear in mind that people of all ages and views will be using this site.
We don’t believe in censoring opinions, but we reserve the right to remove comments we believe will be offensive to other readers, or qualify as unreasonable ‘trolling’ behaviour.
Here’s the rest of the small print – the legal ‘terms and conditions’ for using this blog. It’s pretty standard stuff, mostly common sense, but it’s a good idea to read it through anyway…
All content posted or submitted by users of the blog are the views of the author of the contribution, not necessarily the views of CUCST.
We are not responsible for contributions on the blog, nor for the content of any external sites that may be linked from these pages.
Users of the blog must not post any material that is knowingly false or misleading, defamatory, illegal, abusive, harassing, liable to incite racial hatred, blasphemous, discriminatory, pornographic, sexually oriented, threatening, or invasive of anyone’s privacy.
You mustn’t post anything you don’t own the rights to, or haven’t obtained necessary licences and /or approvals for first. You mustn’t post anything technically harmful – including viruses, Trojan horses, worms etc.
Users mustn’t impersonate any person or entity, or falsely state or otherwise misrepresent your affiliation with any person or entity.
We’re entitled to reveal your identity (or any information we have about you) if appropriate and in accordance with data protection legislation.
Anything you send or post to this website will be considered non-confidential. By transmitting or posting a contribution to the website you automatically grant us a ‘non-exclusive, perpetual, non-terminable, worldwide, sublicensable, and royalty-free licence’ – that just means we can copy and use your contribution in any form and any place that we think will help with our work.
Contributors to discussion websites must have a valid email registered with us at all times. By registering, you certify that all information you provide in the registration is accurate.
If we ask you to register for certain elements of our blog or website, please keep your registration details up-to-date (let us know if you change your email address, for example). We also expect you to keep any user names or passwords confidential to prevent unauthorised access to your account. Let us know right away if you think someone else may have access to your account. You’re responsible for all activities that occur under your username and password.
We may terminate your registration at any time, but it would generally only be if you breach the website rules. You won’t be able to re-register with us without our written consent.
While we encourage our supporters to campaign on the issues referred to on our website and blog, please do not imply that you are taking action on behalf of CUCST. In particular do not state that CUCST is taking, or proposes or is considering taking, action against individuals or organisations – for example, a boycott of a company’s products.
We may sometimes allow companies to advertise goods and services on our websites. We will not knowingly run an advert that’s untrue, or which relates to goods or services contrary to our objectives, but the appearance of an ad does not mean we endorse the advertiser’s goods or services. We are not responsible for the accuracy of any advertising material or for any advertised product or service.
Except for products expressly sold by CUCST or CUCST Trading Limited, the mention of a company’s product on a CUCST website or blog does not represent any endorsement or warranty of that product by CUCST.
