3.2 You also agree to our Privacy Policy, which covers how we collect, use, share, and store your personal information.

3.3 You agree that by clicking “Join Now” “Join SALUS”, “Sign Up” or similar, registering, accessing or using our Services, you are entering into a legally binding agreement (even if you are using our Services on behalf of an organisation). Whereever you reside in the world, your agreement is with Sansom & Sansom Associates Limited, which is the legal owner of SALUS Global Knowledge Exchange.

3.4 This “Agreement” includes this User Agreement and the Privacy Policy and other terms that will be displayed to you at the time you first use certain features (such as applying for or purchasing an “Organisation Membership”, an “Event Membership” or purchasing “Advertisements”), as may be amended by SALUS from time to time. If you do not agree to this Agreement, do NOT click “Join Now” (or similar) and do not access or otherwise use any of our Services.

3.5 Registered users of our Services are “Members” and unregistered users are “Visitors”. This Agreement applies to both.


4.0 Your membership

You agree to: (1) try to choose a strong and secure password; (2) keep your password secure and confidential; (3) not transfer any part of your account (e.g., connections, groups) and (4) follow the law and the Dos and Don'ts below.

5.3 Your Membership is personal to you. You are responsible for ensuring that no one other than you uses your Membership.

5.4 Access to and use of the Members section of the Site is through [a combination of user name and password] (“Your ID”) and is reserved exclusively for Members.

6.0 Membership services

6.1 SALUS provides its Members with a range of “Free services” and “Premium services” (collectively known as the “Services”), the details of which are available on the Site. SALUS reserves the right to withdraw any of the Services and/or not to supply the Services requested.

7.0 Accessing the site

7.1 We do not guarantee that the Site, or any content on it, will always be available or be uninterrupted. Access to the Site is permitted on a temporary basis. We may suspend, withdraw, discontinue or change all or any part of Site without notice. We will not be liable to you if for any reason the Site is unavailable at any time or for any period.


7.2 We may update the Site from time to time, and may change the content at any time. However, please note that any of the content on the Site may be out of date at any given time, and we are under no obligation to update it.

7.3 Other Members may update their Member profiles on the Site from time to time. However, please note that any of the content on any Member’s profile may be out of date at any given time.

7.4 We do not guarantee that the Site, or any content on it, will be free from errors or omissions.

7.5 You are responsible for making all arrangements necessary for you to have access to the Site.

7.6 You are also responsible for ensuring that all persons who access the Site through your internet connection are aware of these Terms and other applicable terms and conditions, and that they comply with them.


8.0 No reliance on information

8.1 The content on the Site is provided for general information only. It is not intended to amount to advice on which you should rely. You must obtain professional or specialist advice before taking, or refraining from, any action on the basis of the content on the Site.

8.2 Although we make reasonable efforts to update the information on the Site, we make no representations, warranties or guarantees, whether express or implied, that the content on the Site is accurate, complete or up-to-date.


9.0 Services

9.1 If you order any Services from us, such Order is subject to acceptance by us.

9.2 We will supply the Services to you from the date set out in the Order for the period of time set out in the Order.

9.3 We will make every effort to complete the Services on time. However, any such dates shall be estimates only and time for performance by us shall not be of the essence of these Terms.

9.4 We may need certain information from you that is necessary for us to provide the Services. We will contact you in writing about this. We will not be liable for any delay or non-performance where you have not provided this information to us after we have asked.

9.5 We may have to suspend the Services if we have to deal with technical problems. We will contact you to let you know in advance where this occurs, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency.

9.6 The price of a Premium Service will be set out in the Order. Our prices may change at any time, but price changes will not affect Orders that we have confirmed with you.

9.7 While we may send you an automatic email confirming receipt of an Order, this does not amount to acceptance of such Order. Acceptance does not occur (and therefore an Order is not binding on us) until is it expressly accepted by us.

9.8 It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Premium Services may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of our Order confirmation process so that, where the Premium Services’ correct price is more or less than our stated price, we will contact you to tell you and for your instructions. If the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Premium Services to you at the incorrect (lower) price.


10.0 Payment for Premium Services

10.1 You'll honour your payment obligations and you are okay with us storing your payment information. Also, there may be fees and taxes that are added to our prices. We don't guarantee refunds.


10.2 If you purchase any of our “Premium Services” you agree to pay us the applicable fees and taxes. Failure to pay these fees may result in the termination of your membership or Premium Service subscription. Also:

a) Your purchase may be subject to foreign exchange fees or differences in prices based on location (e.g. exchange rates).
b) You authorise us to store and continue billing your payment method (e.g. credit card) even after it has expired, to avoid interruptions in your service (e.g. subscriptions) and to facilitate easy payment for new services.
c) You must pay us for applicable fees and taxes unless you cancel the Premium Service, in which case you agree to still pay these fees through the end of the applicable subscription period. Learn how to cancel or change your Premium Services and read about SALUS’s refund policy.
d) Taxes, if applicable, are calculated based on the billing information that you provide us at the time of purchase.

12.1 When you share information, others can see, copy and use that information.


12.2 Our Services allow messaging and sharing of information in many ways, such as, but not limited to your “Profile,  “Groups”,  “Discussions” and links to SALUS “Journal” articles, “Projects” and “Events”. Information and content that you share or post may be seen by other Members or, if public, by Visitors. Where we have made settings available, we will honour the choices you make about who can see content or information (e.g., sharing to a group instead of your network, changing the default setting for “Group” content from public to a more restricted view, limiting your profile visibility, or not letting people know when you change your profile, make recommendations or follow companies). Note that other activities, such as private messaging, are by default private, only visible to the addressee(s).

13.0 Intellectual Property Rights & Limits

As a “Member”, you own or have the usage rights to all of the content, feedback, and personal information you provide to us, but you also grant SALUS a non-exclusive license to it.

You promise to only provide information and content that you have the right to share, and that your SALUS profile will be truthful. As between you and SALUS, you own the content and information that you submit or post to the Services and you are only granting SALUS the following non-exclusive license: A worldwide, transferable and sublicensable right to use, copy, modify, distribute, publish, and process, information and content that you provide through our Services, without any further consent, notice and/or compensation to you or others. These rights are limited in the following ways:


a) You can end this license for specific content by deleting such content from the Services, or generally by closing your membership account, except (a) to the extent you shared it with others as part of the Service and they copied or stored it and (b) for the reasonable time it takes to remove from backup and other systems.

c) We will get your consent if we want to give others the right to publish your posts beyond the Service. However, other Members and/or Visitors may access and share your content and information, consistent with your settings and degree of connection with them.

d) While we may edit and make formatting changes to your content (such as translating it, modifying the size, layout or file type or removing metadata), we will not modify the meaning of your expression.

e) Because you own your content and information and we only have non-exclusive rights to it, you may choose to make it available to others, including under the terms of a Creative Commons license.

You agree that we may access, store and use any information that you provide in accordance with the terms of the Privacy Policy and your privacy settings. By submitting suggestions or other feedback regarding our Services to SALUS, you agree that SALUS can use and share (but does not have to) such feedback for any purpose without compensation to you. You agree to only provide content or information if that does not violate the law nor anyone's rights (e.g., without violating any intellectual property rights or breaching a contract).

25.5 If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.

25.6 These Terms are governed by English law. This means an Order through our site and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it will be governed by English law. You and we both agree to that the courts of England and Wales will have non-exclusive jurisdiction.


25.7 For the purposes of Regulation 9(1)(b) of the Electronic Commerce (EC Directive) Regulations 2002, we hereby confirm that we will not file a copy of our contract with you.

29.0 Dispute Resolution

30.0 General Terms

Here are some important details about how to read the Agreement.

30.1 If a court with authority over this Agreement finds any part of it not enforceable, you and us agree that the court should modify the terms to make that part enforceable while still achieving its intent. If the court cannot do that, you and us agree to ask the court to remove that unenforceable part and still enforce the rest of this Agreement. To the extent allowed by law, the English version of this Agreement is binding and other translations are for convenience only. This Agreement (including additional terms that may be provided by us when you engage with a feature of the Services) is the only agreement between us regarding the Services and supersedes all prior agreements for the Services.


30.2 If we don't act to enforce a breach of this Agreement, that does not mean that SALUS has waived its right to enforce this Agreement. You may not assign or transfer this Agreement (or your membership or use of Services) to anyone without our consent. However, you agree that SALUS may assign this Agreement to its affiliates or a party that buys it without your consent. There are no third party beneficiaries to this Agreement.


30.3 We reserve the right to change the terms of this Agreement and will provide you notice if we do and we agree that changes cannot be retroactive. If you don't agree to these changes, you must stop using the Services.
