Terms & Conditions

Introduction

The CSS Workshop is a project from Rachel Andrew through her company Edgeofmyseat Ltd. If you wish to purchase products or services from us you need to register. In completing your registration, you accept:

When we use words like “we”, “us” and “our” in these Registration Terms, it is to Edgeofmyseat Ltd that we refer. Our registered office address is Spike Island, 133 Cumberland Road, Bristol, BS1 6UX, England and our registered number is 04735127.

When we use words like “you” and “your”, we are referring to you, whom, we hope, will soon be our registered user (if you are not already). The “website” is the one hosted at thecssworkshop.com.

Your Registration

There’s not much that you need to do to complete your registration. In registering, you are confirming that this information is accurate and up-to-date. You can always change these details if you need to, by accessing your Account settings.

You must check the box that is your confirmation that you accept these Registration Terms, the Purchase Terms and our Privacy Policy. If you don’t do that, you won’t be able to register. But if you do check the box and submit your registration to us, please bear in mind that you are entering into a contract with us and that contract is, of course, based on these Registration Terms. Don’t worry, you don’t have to do anything in particular. If you register and subsequently decide not to use our services, there’s nothing you are required to do (and if you wish, you can have your registration terminated). But since you are entering into a contract with us, it would be sensible to read these Registration Terms.

You’ll always be able to find a copy of the Registration Terms on the website, but you might want to print off a copy for your records. If you do, please bear in mind, however, that the Registration Terms might change in the future. If we do change the Registration Terms, we will, of course, contact you through the website to let you know that the Registration Terms have changed. If you continue to use the Interactive Services after that, you will do so having accepted the new version of the Registration Terms.

You

We mentioned above the minimum information that you’ll have to provide us in order for your registration to be effective. Of course, that information alone will be enough to identify you personally and so for that reason, it is protected under the Data Protection Act 1998 (and probably equivalent laws in your jurisdiction, if you’re not living in the UK). If you go on to use our Interactive Services, your posts may reveal more about yourself. We will handle that information in accordance with our Privacy Policy, which you accept as part of our contract with you.

We must be able to identify you as an individual from the information contained within your profile and to that extent only, you confirm that your profile information is accurate and that you will keep it up to date.

We would love to make our Interactive Services available to everyone but unfortunately, because of the way English law works, children are not capable of entering into contracts. Consequently, our users must be at least 18 years of age and you confirm that you are and that you are capable of entering into binding contracts.

Assuming then that you are over 18 and capable of entering into contracts that are legally binding upon you, your acceptance of these Registration Terms gives rise to a contract between you and us that is indeed binding on both you and us and those that may later inherit the benefit of the contracts that we have formed. You may not transfer or sell your rights under this contract to anybody else nor may you use the benefit of your contractual rights with us as security for anything. We may, for some reason, have to ‘assign’ the contract that we’ve formed with you to another business (for example, as part of a restructure) and if that happens, we will notify you of the consequences for you.

You can terminate your registration at any time.

Consumers enjoy protection under a variety of laws in different jurisdictions around the world and, if you are using our Services as a consumer, nothing in the Registration Terms is intended to undermine your protection either in England or wherever you happen to be when you access the Services. In English law, it would be unlawful for us to attempt to exclude or limit liability for personal injury or death arising from our negligence or for any loss you suffer as a result of our fraud or for any statement we make fraudulently intending you to rely on it in entering into this contract with us. It’s pretty difficult to see how your use of the Interactive Services could result in anybody suffering any kind of physical harm, but just to be clear, nothing in these Registration Terms should be interpreted as an attempt to exclude or limit this kind of liability.

Bearing in mind always the exceptions we have mentioned in the previous paragraph, there are certain types of liability that we are permitted by law to limit or exclude and, accordingly, WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU OR TO ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL LOSS, DAMAGE OR EXPENSE (INCLUDING LOSS OF PROFITS, DATA, OPPORTUNITY, BUSINESS OR GOODWILL) THAT YOU MIGHT SUFFER AS A RESULT OF USING THE INTERACTIVE SERVICES, HOWEVER THAT LOSS DAMAGE OR EXPENSE MIGHT ARISE. In addition, WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE OR RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY FAILURE TO PERFORM OR FOR THE DELAY IN THE PERFORMANCE OF ANY OF OUR OBLIGATIONS UNDER THESE REGISTRATION TERMS THAT IS CAUSED BY EVENTS THAT ARE BEYOND OUR REASONABLE CONTROL. This might include a failure of an internet service provider to deliver notifications to you, for instance.

Finally, if we happen to make a statement that turns out to be untrue (whether orally or in writing) prior to your registration and you rely on that statement in entering into this contract with us, then, unless that statement was made fraudulently by us, we will only be liable to you should that untrue statement result in us breaching these Registration Terms. If it does not, the untrue statement has no impact on our relationship with you save insofar as it may impact on your legal rights as a consumer (if you are a consumer).

These limitations and exclusions of liability will survive the termination of your registration (which, in turn, would terminate our contract with you). In making sure that our users are satisfied and that the Services are working efficiently, the data transmitted by you and other users or customers may be reviewed and analysed by us or by third parties working on our behalf. This does NOT mean, however, that we are under any duty to do this and we do not and will not assume any responsibility for reviewing content posted by our users. Nevertheless, as we have indicated above, we may remove content posted by you or by other users or customers if that content contravenes these Registration Terms or the user or customer posting that content is in breach of these Registration Terms. Likewise, if you see content that concerns you, please do let us know and we will look into it.

You also need to be aware that viruses can be transmitted via websites, not just email. So if you want to make sure that your systems are safe from infection, you should run suitable security software because WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY VIRUS INFECTION OR OTHER HARM CAUSED TO YOUR SYSTEMS THROUGH YOUR USE OF THE INTERACTIVE SERVICES OR WHEN FOLLOWING ANY LINKS TO WEBSITES RUN BY OTHER PEOPLE. There may come occasions where we choose not to insist on your total compliance with your obligations under these Registration Terms or that, where you’ve breached the Registration Terms, we don’t make use of our rights to take action against you. This does NOT mean, however, that we are waiving those rights. We can take action against you later should we so choose and at any time during the lifetime of your registration (or indeed, where necessary, at any time after the termination of your registration), we can return to the issue and insist upon your compliance.

This Contract

From time to time, we may give you information relating to your use of the Interactive Services. This might be information about new functionality or old functionality that we are going to withdraw. It might be to let you know that we have made changes to these Registration Terms or the Privacy Policy. We will send this information to you in the form of notifications via the website. We might also send an email to the address you have given us when registering (which is why we need you to keep that email address up-to-date). English law requires that certain information that we might have to send to you has to be in writing, so you accept that information we provide to you electronically is indeed ‘written’ for this purpose.

If, for some reason, you need to communicate with us for contractual purposes, you can do this by email at rachel@thecssworkshop.com but if you really feel the need, you can send us a letter by post, addressed to our registered office at Spike Island, 133 Cumberland Road, Bristol, BS1 6UX, England.

Information that we send to you or you send to us for contractual reasons we’ll call “Notices” for the purposes of these Registration Terms. There may be times when we all need to know when such a Notice was received. To make things easy, those Notices will be deemed to have been received as follows:

It might just be that at some point in the future, a court or some other legitimate authority has cause to review these Registration Terms and in so doing, rules that some or other part of them is invalid, unlawful or unenforceable. Obviously, that could cause a bit of a problem, certainly for us and possibly also for you. So, in the very unlikely event that something like that happens, there will be two consequences. First, everybody accepts that the rest of the Registration Terms will remain in place between us and that the contract will survive intact with the problematic element removed. Second, the authority or court taking action may compose a replacement for the stricken terms that do as good a job as reasonably possible as the job previously done by those terms or, where the authority or court taking action declines to do so, you agree that we may replace those terms ourselves with something else that complies with the ruling.

Everything relevant to our contractual relationship with you is set out either in these Registration Terms, the Privacy Policy and, if relevant, the Purchase Terms. We have no earlier contractual arrangement or understanding with you of any sort. If there is anything that you seek to rely on in creating your registration, please disregard it right now, because in submitting your registration and accepting these Registration Terms, you must acknowledge that in creating your registration, you haven’t relied upon any statement made or promise given by us, whether stated plainly or implied from our conduct UNLESS that representation or statement is repeated either in these Registration Terms, the Purchase Terms or in the Privacy Policy.

In England, there is a law that gives third parties (that is, people who are not ‘party’ to a contract) certain rights to enforce terms that are intended to benefit them. This is called the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999. Any right of a third party to take action under that law is excluded. There may be other situations where third parties can take action and where we are not permitted to exclude that possibility, such third party rights remain, so you might want to bear that in mind.

Your registration is subject to and governed by English law. Any dispute that arises from our relationship with you or your use of the Interactive Services will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.

This concludes these Registration Terms and as soon as you check the ‘accept terms’ box and create your registration, you will have a binding contract with us.
