Throughout these Terms of Use we will refer to you as "you", and we will refer to Sciety AB as "we", "us" or "Sciety".


1. Application

These Terms of Use set out the general terms governing your use of the Website. They apply to you as soon as you first use the Website, and you are deemed to have agreed to be bound by them upon your first use of the Website.


2. Relationship to Other Agreements

In addition to these Terms of Use, our Privacy Policy applies to you and everyone else who uses the Website. We refer to the Terms of Use and the Privacy Policy together as the "Website Agreements".

During the course of your use of the Website, you may choose to agree to be bound by certain other agreements. For example, if you wish to join Sciety as a member, you must enter into a Membership Agreement, and if you wish to seek fundraising through Sciety, you will have to enter into a Fund Seeker Agreement. We refer to all of these other agreements as the "Platform Agreements", since they set out the substantive terms that govern your relationship with us when you make use of our platform.

The Website Agreements will continue to apply to you even after you have agreed to a Platform Agreement.

The Website may include at any given time text, graphics, logos, icons, images, sound clips, video clips and data compilations, and together with the Website's page layout, underlying code and software we refer to all of these as "Content".
All of the Content is the property of Sciety, our affiliates or third parties with whom we do business, and this means that it is protected by intellectual property laws and other relevant laws. This means that, except as provided by law, you may not reproduce, copy, distribute, store or in any other way re-use material from the Website unless otherwise expressly indicated on the Website or unless given express written permission to do so by Sciety. For the avoidance of doubt, data mining or scraping the Website without the express written permission of Sciety is not permitted.

We assume no responsibility for the content of such websites, and we disclaim liability for any and all forms of loss or damage arising out of the use of them. Additionally, even if we include a link to another website on this Website, that does not mean that we endorse that other website or in any way recommend that you should use it.
