Changes to these terms

We may make changes to these Terms from time to time and these changes will become effective as soon as they are posted on the Services.

Information and availablity

While we take every care to ensure that the information provided by the Services is accurate and complete, some of it may be supplied to us by third parties and where that is the case we are often unable to check its accuracy or completeness. You are advised to verify the accuracy of any information before relying on it.

We will do our utmost to ensure that the Services will be uninterrupted and that transmissions will be error-free. However, due to the nature of the Internet this cannot be guaranteed. Your access to the Services may also be suspended or restricted occasionally to allow for repairs, maintenance, or the introduction of new facilities or services. We will always try to limit the frequency and duration of any disruption. We will not be liable if for any reason our site is unavailable at any time or for any period.

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 disclose it to any third party. 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 are responsible for making all arrangements necessary for you to have access to our site. You are also responsible for ensuring that all persons who access our site through your internet connection are aware of these terms, and that they comply with them.

The Services are provided on an “as is” basis without any warranties of any kind, and to the fullest extent permitted by law we will not be liable for any inaccuracy or omission in the information provided by the Services or any interruptions in availability of the Services.

If you have any concerns about material which appears on our site, please contact enquiries@layeredonline.com

 

Contributions provided by you

The website may from time to time invite you to comment on articles, send in your own imagery, and join in webchats. By contributing you are granting us a worldwide, non-exclusive, perpetual, royalty-free licence to store your contributions on our servers and to display the contributions on the Services. We can’t promise that we will use all contributions provided to us.

We want to keep the websites clean and friendly. Please do not submit contributions that are offensive, racist, harassing, illegal, misleading, abusive, defamatory, obscene or otherwise objectionable. We do our best to monitor and moderate contributions but we cannot monitor them all and you therefore could be at risk yourself if you contribute anything objectionable. We reserve the right to take down any contribution that breaches any of the above rules, and we may be obliged to pass copies to appropriate authorities. We reserve the right, among other things, to suspend or terminate your access to the Services if you are in breach of these Terms, for example by submitting contributions that are unsuitable.

We will not be responsible, or liable to any third party, for the content or accuracy of any materials posted by you or any other user of our site.

 

Competitions
  • The competitions that we run through the Services are subject to the following rules (unless otherwise specified):
  • No purchase is necessary.
  • Only one entry is permitted per unique account, and no bulk or third party entries are permitted.
  • Competitions are open to all UK and ROI residents (over the age of 18 in alcohol, tobacco or travel-related competitions, and in other cases as stated) except our employees, the companies or organisations with whom the competition or offer is being run, their agents, or anyone directly connected with the promotion.
 • Proof of entry will not be accepted as proof of receipt of entry.
  • If we run a competition or offer with a promoter where that promoter is responsible for the provision of the offer or prizes then Layeredonline Ltd will not be responsible for or have any liability for the provision of those offers or prizes.
  • We reserve in all cases the right to replace the stated prizes with other prizes that we consider to be of broadly equivalent value. We offer no cash alternative for noncash prizes, and prize winners must accept prizes in the form offered. Prizes are not refundable or transferable.
  • The winner may be required to sign a statement proving their eligibility/liability.
  • The closing date for receipt of entries is as stated for each individual competition. The winner(s) will either be drawn at random from all valid entries, or as the first correct entries submitted, depending on the type of competition, and will be notified by email or social media within two weeks of the closing date.
  • Details of the winner(s) can be obtained by sending a SAE marked [name of competition] Layeredonline Ltd, Unit 3 Allen Mill, Allendale, Northumberland NE47 9EQ, United Kingdom within 21 days of the closing date of the promotion.
  • Details of all entries will be kept on a database and will only be passed to third parties to enable analysis or the processing of the competition and prize fulfillment unless you specifically allow the data to be shared. This is the only occasion when another organisation apart from Layeredonline Ltd will have access to your information unless you have previously agreed to your data being shared. Data will only be shared with the competition partner when you consent to it by ticking the box on an offer or competition. The sponsor will be clearly named in the text next to the tick box and if the box is not ticked your data will not be shared. Any use will be in accordance with our Privacy Policy.
  • All entrants to competitions and offers are deemed to have accepted these rules and agree to be bound by them, and agree to co-operate in any publicity that may arise which may include their name or image being used on websites, magazines or mobile services at any time as a result of the competition.
  • Please remember to get permission from the person who pays the bill before you enter via SMS.
  • We reserve the right to disqualify or not award a prize to an entrant who in our opinion has not entered in to the spirit of these terms and conditions or the intention of the competition.
  • By entering these competitions you are agreeing to receive details of future related content from Layeredonline Ltd and our subsidiaries, and if clearly stated, selected third parties. If you do not want to receive any further information from us then please send your name, address, email address and phone number to The Data Protection Officer, Layeredonline Ltd, Low Broadwood Hall, Allendale, Northumberland NE47 9AD.
