3) What are these Website Terms?  

These Website Terms explain how you can, and cannot, use this website (Site) and its content, or any other Cambridge websites which link to this page. 

Some other key documents to know about are:   

Sometimes we will change these Website Terms – if we do, we will post those changes on this Site or in some cases let you know directly. We will assume you are fine with these changes if you continue to use the Site.  

We have worked hard to create this Site and its content - we either own it or have permission to share it with you (except if you upload content on the Site, in which case, you own that and let us use it).   

You may need to create a user profile and password on the Site – if you do, keep these safe and do not share them with others. We understand unexpected things happen, so if you think someone might have these details please contact us as soon as possible so we can help keep your information secret (although ultimately, you are responsible for all activities that occur on your profile).  

While we hope we never have to, we may need to disable your user profile or access to the Site if we think it is necessary to protect the security or integrity of the Site or if you have not complied with these Website Terms. 

These Website Terms are governed by English law and we both agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts if required. 

4) What can and can't I do on this Site?
