BSIA does not make any charge for you to access the Site. However, you should be aware that your Internet Service Provider and/or telephone operator may charge you for time spent accessing the Site in the same way that you are charged for making telephone calls. You should contact your operator if you require details of these charges.

It may exercise this right with or without notice. If applicable, notice will be given to your e-mail address as notified to BSIA. In that event, notice will be deemed to be served three hours after transmission or posting.
2. Community Forums
The Site includes public and restricted-access forums that allow feedback to the BSIA and interaction between users and BSIA staff ("Forums"). While BSIA does not control the information/materials posted to Forums by users (the "Messages"), it reserves the right (which it may exercise at its sole discretion without notice) to delete, move or edit the Messages and to terminate your access to and use of the Forums and you waive any moral rights that you may have in regard to the Messages.
You are solely responsible for the content of your Messages. You must comply with any rules posted by BSIA on a Forum. You may not:
- post, link to or otherwise publish any Messages containing any form of advertising or promotion for goods and services or any chain Messages or "spam";
- post, link to or otherwise publish any Messages with recommendations to buy or refrain from buying a particular product or service or which contain confidential information of another party;
- post, link to or otherwise publish any Messages that are unlawful, threatening, abusive, libellous, indecent, infringe copyright or other rights of third parties or which contain any other form of illegal content;
- post or otherwise publish any Messages that contain a virus or other harmful component;
- disguise the origin of any Messages;
- impersonate any person or entity (including BSIA employees or Forum guests or hosts) or misrepresent any affiliation with any person or entity;
post or otherwise publish any Messages unrelated to the Forum or the Forum's topic;
- post or transmit any Messages that contain software viruses, files or code designed to interrupt, destroy or limit the functionality of the Site or any computer software or equipment;
- collect or store other users' personal data;
- restrict or inhibit any other user from using the Forums.
By submitting messages to any Forum you agree to indemnify and hold harmless BSIA from all claims, costs and expenses (including legal expenses) arising out of any Messages posted or published by you that are in breach of this section.
The Forums contain Messages submitted by users over whom BSIA has no control. BSIA cannot guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of any Messages. Some users may breach these terms and post Messages that are misleading, untrue or offensive. You must bear all risk associated with your use of the Forum and should not rely on Messages in making (or refraining from making) any specific decisions.
BSIA staff (who will be clearly identified as such) will also contribute material to the Forums in order to stimulate discussions and ensure the smooth running of the Forums. The Forums may also contain messages from special guests selected by BSIA. The opinions of those BSIA staff and special guests are their own and are not necessarily endorsed by BSIA.
By submitting Messages to any Forums you are granting BSIA a perpetual royalty free non-exclusive licence to reproduce, modify, translate, make available, distribute and sub-license the Message in whole or in part and in any form. This may include personal information such as your user name and alias and your expressions of opinion. BSIA reserves the right to contact you by e-mail with regard to your use of the Forums.
It is not possible for BSIA to fully and effectively monitor when Messages infringe the copyright of a third party or other third party rights. If you believe that a Message infringes any legal rights that you may have, you should notify BSIA immediately by contacting info

6. 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 BSIA, BSIA 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.
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.
