Terms of Use

This page (together with the documents referred to on it) tells you the terms on which you may make use of our website, whether as a guest or a registered user (“Terms of Use”). Please read these Terms of Use carefully before you start to use the website. By using our website, you indicate that you accept these Terms of Use and that you agree to abide by them. If you do not agree to these Terms of Use, please refrain from using our website.

Information About Us

This website is operated by Primary Science Teaching Trust ("we", “our” and “us”). We are a charitable trust established in 1997 and have our registered office at 2 Kingdom Street, London W2 6BD.

Accessing this Website

Access to our website is permitted on a temporary basis, and we reserve the right to withdraw or amend the service we provide on our website without notice (see below). We will not be liable if for any reason our website is unavailable at any time or for any period. From time to time, we may restrict access to some parts of our website, or our entire website, to users who have registered with us.

If you choose, or you are provided with, a user identification code, password or any other piece of information as part of our security procedures, you must treat such information as confidential, and you must not share it with any other person. We have the right to disable any user identification code or password, whether chosen by you or allocated by us, at any time, if in our opinion you have failed to comply with any of the provisions of these Terms of Use. You agree to notify us immediately upon becoming aware of any unauthorised disclosure or use of your user identification code and/or password.

You are responsible for making all arrangements necessary for you to have access to our website. You are also responsible for ensuring that all persons who access our website through your internet connection are aware of these Terms of Use, and that they comply with them.

Prohibited Use

You may use our site only for lawful purposes. You may not use our site:

  • in any way that breaches any applicable local, national or international law or regulation;
  • in any way that is unlawful or fraudulent, or has any unlawful or fraudulent purpose or effect;
  • to transmit, or procure the sending of, any unsolicited or unauthorised advertising or promotional material or any other form of similar solicitation (spam);
  • to make unauthorised attempts to access any of our systems or third party networks;

Interactive Services

We may from time to time provide interactive services on our site, including, without limitation chat rooms or bulletin boards.

We will do our best to assess any possible risks for users (and in particular, for children) from third parties when they use any interactive service provided on our site, and we will decide in each case whether it is appropriate to use moderation of the relevant service (including what kind of moderation to use) in the light of those risks. However, we are under no obligation to oversee, monitor or moderate any interactive service we provide on our site, and we expressly exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any interactive service by a user in contravention of our content standards, whether the service is moderated or not.

The use of any of our interactive services by a minor is subject to the consent of their parent or guardian. We advise parents who permit their children to use an interactive service that it is important that they communicate with their children about their safety online, as moderation is not foolproof. Minors who are using any interactive service should be made aware of the potential risks to them.

These content standards apply to any and all material which you contribute to our site (contributions) [and to any interactive services associated with it]. You must comply with the spirit of the following standards as well as the letter. The standards apply to each part of any contribution as well as to its whole.

Contributions must be accurate (where they state facts) and be genuinely held (where they state opinions). Contributions must comply with applicable law in the UK and in any country from which they are posted.
