Website access

    Use of website

  2. You may not harvest or otherwise collect information en-masse from this website for the purposes of redistributing it [1]. If the information is collected and published elsewhere by a third party, it is likely to become inaccurate within a brief time frame, and consequently of detriment to the overall quality of local VCS listings in our area. DIVA, however, is committed to making every effort in ensuring that its listings are up-to-date.

    Site uptime

  3. All reasonable measures are taken by us to ensure that this website is operational all day, every day. However, occasionally technical issues may result in some downtime and accordingly we will not be liable if divabradford.org.uk is unavailable at any time.
  4. Where possible we always try to give advance warning of maintenance issues that may result in website down time but we shall not be obliged to provide such notice.

    Member-provided data

    Our Entity registration process includes the purpose of processing personal contact details with the aim of promoting local groups to as wide an audience as possible, including to those with access to the Internet.

  5. By registering an entity with DIVA, you, as a DIVA member, are giving DIVA Partners permission to make publicly available the non-confidential information you have supplied. The main outlet for information on the DIVA database is a searchable online directory, which aims to publicise groups to the widest possible audience.
  6. When using the DIVA website you shall not post or send to or from this website any material:
    1. for which you have not obtained all necessary consents;
    2. that is discriminatory, obscene, pornographic, defamatory, liable to incite racial hatred, in breach of confidentiality or privacy, which may cause annoyance or inconvenience to others, which encourages or constitutes conduct that would be deemed a criminal offence, give rise to a civil liability, or otherwise is contrary to the law in the United Kingdom;
    3. which is harmful in nature including, and without limitation, computer viruses, Trojan horses, corrupted data, or other potentially harmful software or data.
  7. Any data you do submit is subject to approval and verification by DIVA administrators. This applies to all information associated with any of your entities and, in addition, any related meeting rooms, job vacancies, event listings and any other data posted in a publicity viewable area on the DIVA website.
  8. When registering for a user account, you are not obliged to use your personal name when choosing a username. However, your user account on the DIVA Bradford website represents you as an individual, and your username may be publicly displayed in association with actions[2] you take, such as posting content to the DIVA Bradford Forum. As a registered user you agree to be held personally responsible for any action on the DIVA Bradford website that is attributable to your DIVA user account.
  9. You may represent an entity which intends to register a shared corporate user account which may be accessed by multiple workers in your team. In such circumstances, whereby this user account does not represent a sole registered user, then your use of this website implicitly agrees that your employer[3] will accept responsibility for this user account, and for any information posted or submitted to DIVA using this user account by any staff or volunteers which are in violation of the stipulations outlined in our terms and conditions or data protection standards.
  10. The DIVA admin team may modify the content of listings which you upload, usually for the purposes of spelling, punctuation and grammar.

DIVA may also contact you to check if your entity's information is still current and accurate.
