Terms & Conditions

Please read this carefully. By accessing the OBREMS web site (the "Web Site") you are agreeing to the terms that appear below, whether or not you register as a user. The Web Site is referred to in these terms as "the Site".
1. Introduction
The Site is owned and operated by the Oxford Brookes Real Estate Management Society (“OBREMS").
As a user, you may be able to access material on some areas of the Site without going through the registration process. Certain areas of the Site are only open to you if you register.
There is no specific time limit applying to your access and use of the Site on these Terms. However, OBREMS reserves the right to suspend or terminate your access and use of the Site at any time. It may exercise this right with or without notice. If applicable, notice will be given to your e-mail address as notified to OBREMS. In that event, notice will be deemed to be served three hours after transmission or posting.
2. Use of OBREMS Content
All material on the Site and News by E-mail (the "Content") belongs to OBREMS or its licensors. You may retrieve and display Content from the Site on a computer screen or mobile telephone, print individual pages on paper (but not photocopy them) and store such pages in electronic form on disk or on your mobile telephone (but not on any server or other storage device connected to a network) for your personal, non-commercial use.
Except as expressly set out above, you may not reproduce, modify or in any way commercially exploit any of the Content. In particular, but without limiting the general application of the restrictions contained in the preceding sentence, you may not do any of the following without prior written permission from OBREMS:
• redistribute any of the Content (including by using it as part of any library, archive or similar service);
• remove the copyright or trade mark notice from any copies of Content made under these Terms;
• create a database in electronic or structured manual form by systematically downloading and storing all or any of the Content. Requests to republish or redistribute Content should be addressed to the OBREMS committee on committee@OBREMS.com.
You acknowledge that OBREMS and Oxford Brookes Real Estate Management Society are trade marks and that you may not use them without prior written permission from OBREMS.
If you would like to provide a link to the Site from your own web site, please read and comply with the following guidelines and all applicable laws. A web site that links to any of the Sites:
• may link to, but not replicate, the Content;
• must not create a frame or any other browser or border environment around the Content;
• must not in any way imply that OBREMS is endorsing it or its products or services;
• must not misrepresent its relationship with OBREMS;
• must not present false information about OBREMS;
• must not use any OBREMS trade marks displayed on the Sites without permission from OBREMS;
• must not be a web site that infringes any intellectual property or other right of any person or that otherwise does not comply with all relevant laws and regulations;
• must not be a web site or WAP site that contains content that could be construed as distasteful, offensive or controversial.
OBREMS expressly reserves the right to request that any link in breach of these terms be removed and to take whatever other action it deems appropriate.
3. Registration
On registration, you must provide OBREMS with accurate, complete registration information and it is your responsibility to inform OBREMS of any changes to that information (including in particular your e-mail address) by e-mailing committee@OBREMS.com
On registration, you will choose a user name and password. OBREMS does not permit any of the following:
• any other person sharing your user name and password;
• access through a single name and password being made available to multiple users on a network.
You are responsible for all use of the Site made by you or anyone else using your user name and password (collectively, "ID") for preventing unauthorised use of your ID. If you believe there has been any breach of security such as the disclosure, theft or unauthorised use of your ID or any payment information, you must notify OBREMS immediately by e-mailing OBREMS committee on committee@OBREMS.com.
If on registration (or on amendment of your registration details) you provide OBREMS with an email address that will result in any emails OBREMS may send you being sent to you via a computer network operated by or on behalf of your employer or college (or similar) then you are warranting that you are entitled to receive emails at that address. You also agree that OBREMS may refrain from sending you any emails to such address without notifying you, even if you have subscribed to receive them, if we receive a request from your employer or college to stop sending emails to that address.
4. News By E-Mail
OBREMS may give you the option to subscribe to its e-mail news service. Your use of the Content received through the e-mail news service will be subject to these Terms. In addition, on registration to the Site, OBREMS may automatically sign you up to receive certain news-by-emails (although you will be given the option to opt-out of receiving such emails on registration).
5. Site Transactions
If your use of the Site is terminated by OBREMS, you will be entitled to receive a refund of any credit that remains unused at the time of termination (unless your use is terminated because you are in breach of these Terms). You will still be responsible for any fees or other charges incurred by you until the termination of your rights to use the Site.
You may use the Site to purchase products or services from OBREMS's third party partners. In that event, your contract for such products will be with the third party partner and not with OBREMS.
6. Software and Java Security
Copyright in any software that is made available for download from the Site ("Software") belongs to OBREMS or its suppliers. Your use of the Software is governed by the terms of any licence agreement that may accompany or be included with the Software. Do not install or use any Software unless you agree to such licence agreement.
7. WARRANTIES & LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
The Content is only for your general information and use and is not intended to address your particular requirements. In particular, the Content does not constitute any form of advice, recommendation or arrangement by OBREMS or its licensors and is not intended to be relied upon by users in making (or refraining from making) any specific investment or other decisions. Appropriate independent advice should be obtained before making any such decision. Any arrangements made between you and any third party named on the Site are at your sole risk and responsibility.
NO WARRANTIES

NO INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES
TO THE FULL EXTENT ALLOWED BY APPLICABLE LAW, YOU AGREE THAT OBREMS WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU AND/OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF PRIVACY OR FOR FAILURE TO MEET ANY DUTY INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY DUTY OF GOOD FAITH, LACK OF NEGLIGENCE OR OF WORKMANLIKE EFFORT) OR FOR ANY OTHER INDIRECT, SPECIAL, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES WHATSOEVER THAT ARISE OUT OF OR ARE RELATED TO THE SITE SERVICES OR TO ANY BREACH OF THE TERMS BY OBREMS, EVEN IF OBREMS HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES AND EVEN IN THE EVENT OF FAULT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR STRICT LIABILITY.
LIMITATION ON DAMAGES; EXCLUSIVE REMEDY

LINKS
The Site(s) contains links to other World Wide Web sites provided by independent third parties ("Third Party Sites"), either directly or through frames. Where possible, OBREMS will make clear where such links are being made, though Third Party Sites may be co-branded with OBREMS and so include the OBREMS trade mark. OBREMS is not responsible for the availability or content of Third Party Sites and will not be a party to, or in any way responsible for, any transaction concerning goods or services available from such Third Party Sites.
8. Privacy Policy
The information that you provide about yourself to OBREMS will only be used by OBREMS in accordance with its Privacy Policy Statement. This includes the disclosure of your information within OBREMS and to third parties including Oxford Brookes University alumni and current Oxford Brookes University students who register as members. It may also be made available to other third parties including the Oxford Brookes University Alumni office and the department of Real Estate & Construction with your express permission.
9. Changes to these Terms
OBREMS reserves the right, at its discretion, to make changes to any part of the Site. Due to its policy of updating and improving the Site(s), OBREMS may wish to change these Terms (including those relating to your use of the Content). When terms are changed, OBREMS will notify you by e- mail or by publishing details of those changes by including them at the end of these Terms (see "Details of Changes"). If you use the Site after OBREMS has published or notified you of the changes, you are agreeing now to be bound by those changes. If you do not agree to be bound by those changes, you should not use the Site any further after they are published at the end of these Terms or after you receive notice of them.
10. Competitions and Prizes
From time to time OBREMS may run competitions, free prize draws and promotions on the Site. These are subject to additional terms that will be made available at the time.
11. Choice of Law and Jurisdiction
These Terms shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, English law.
The parties irrevocably agree that the courts of England shall (subject to the paragraph below) have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute which may arise out of, under, or in connection with these Terms or the legal relationship established by them, and for those purposes irrevocably submit all disputes to the jurisdiction of the English courts.
For the exclusive benefit of OBREMS, OBREMS shall retain the right to bring proceedings as to the substance of the matter in the courts of the country of your residence or, where these Terms are entered into in the course of your trade or profession, the country of your principal place of business.
12. General
You may not assign, sub-license or otherwise transfer any of your rights under these Terms.
If any provision of these Terms is found to be invalid by any court having competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of that provision will not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms, which shall remain in full force and effect.
Failure by either party to exercise any right or remedy under these Terms does not constitute a waiver of that right or remedy. Headings in these Terms are for convenience only and will have no legal meaning or effect.
