Last modified on 22 November 2017


University College Birmingham ("your Institution") has authorised you (“you” or “your”) to access certain career development resources (the “Services”) which utilise a technology platform provided by Abintegro Limited (“we”, “us” or “our”). The following Terms of Use (“Terms of Use”) apply to your access to and use of the Services, which we may make available through this website and our mobile app, and are separate from, and additional to, the user terms which relate to the use (if any) of the app itself.


1. YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS OF USE

(a) The Services are made available to you free of charge by us on behalf of your Institution. We are incorporated and registered in England with company number 6512512, and VAT number 932354434. If you have any questions about these Terms of Use, please contact us at helpdesk@abintegro.com or at Abintegro Limited, Building 3, 566 Chiswick High Road, London W4 5YA.

(b) By using the Services, you confirm that you acknowledge our data privacy policy for individual users (available at https://hireducb.careercentre.me/privacy/ucb) (“Privacy Policy”) applies to you and you accept these Terms of Use and agree to abide by them. If you do not agree with these Terms of Use or do not understand them, you should cease using the Services immediately.

(c) We have the right to change or modify these Terms of Use at any time; as a result, please always verify whether you have consulted the latest version. Your continued use of the Services constitutes your acceptance of the modified Terms of Use. The date on which the Terms of Use were last modified is indicated at the top of these Terms of Use.

(d) To use the Services, you must be at least 18 years of age (or such younger or older age as is necessary to be able to validly consent in your country). If you are younger and you wish to use the Services, you must get consent from your parent or guardian before doing so.


2. ACCESS TO, AND AVAILABILITY OF, THE SERVICES

(a) You must register with your Institution to use the Services.

(b) You may access the Services only in accordance with these Terms of Use.

(c) Subject to your compliance with these Terms of Use and in consideration of registering your details with us to access the Services, we grant to you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable licence to access and use the Services for your personal use only.

(d) You grant to us a non-exclusive, fully paid and royalty-free, transferable, sub-licensable, worldwide licence to use the content that you provide through use of the Services for the delivery of the Services to you.

(f) The Services are provided on an as-is and as-available basis, with no warranty of any kind, express or implied, including as to fitness for any particular purpose. We do not guarantee that the Services will be free from error, omission or defect, and expressly disclaim: (i) any such representation or warranty; and (ii) all liability for the availability, security or reliability of the Services.

(g) We will use reasonable endeavours to ensure that the Services are available for use at all times. However you acknowledge the Services are provided over the internet and mobile networks and so the operation and availability of the Services may be affected by factors outside of our control at any time for any reason. We may also occasionally need to carry out repairs, maintenance or introduce new facilities and functions which results in the Services being temporarily unavailable.
