Website Terms of Use

(Dated 5 June 2020.)

Welcome to

Please note that by using this website or our mobile applications (for example our android, iPhone and iPad apps) (each a “Site”, together the “Sites”), you accept these Website Terms of Use (“terms”). If you do not accept these terms, please do not use the Sites. We may change these terms from time to time for security, administrative, legal or regulatory reasons, so you should review them each time that you visit the Sites. You should print a copy of these terms for future reference. 

We may make changes to these terms

We amend these terms from time to time. Every time you wish to use our Sites, please check these terms to ensure you understand the terms that apply at that time.


The Sites are operated by Associated Newspapers Limited, a company registered in England under company number 84121 with a registered office at Northcliffe House, 2 Derry Street, London W8 5TT ("we", "us", "our"). Our VAT number is GB 243571174.


You can contact us by visiting the Contact Us section of the Sites and sending us a message.


Our Sites are made available free of charge and are only for users in the United Kingdom. We do not represent that products or content available on or through our Sites is appropriate for use or available in other locations.

We may make changes to our Sites. We may update and change the Sites from time to time to reflect changes to products, users' needs and our business priorities. We will try to give you reasonable notice of any major changes.

We may suspend or withdraw the Sites. We do not guarantee that the Sites, or any content on them, will always be available or be uninterrupted. We may suspend or withdraw or restrict the availability of all or any part of a Site for business and operational reasons. We will try to give you reasonable notice of any suspension or withdrawal.

We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing if this happens.


We are not responsible for any third party websites (“third party websites”) we may link to via the Sites. Such links should not be interpreted as approval by us of the third party websites or information you may obtain from them. We have no control over the contents of those sites or resources.

You acknowledge and agree that, you have, or will, freely chose to visit a third party website and we are not responsible for (i) the availability of such external site or resources, (ii) the privacy practices of such third party website, (ii) the content of such third party website, including (without limitation) any advertising, content, products, goods or other materials or services on or available from such third party websites or resources or (iii) the use to which others make of these third party websites or resources, nor for any damage, loss or offence caused or alleged to be caused by, or in connection with, the use of or reliance on any such advertising, content, products, goods or other materials or services available on such third party websites or resources.


We are the owner or the licensee of all intellectual property rights in our Sites, and in the material published on them.  Those works are protected by copyright laws and treaties around the world. All such rights are reserved.

You may print individual webpages on the Sites for your private non-commercial use, provided that such printing is not substantial or systematic and our trademarks and copyright and trade mark notices are not removed.

Unless otherwise stated in these terms, you must not (whether directly or indirectly) copy, download, store, make available, distribute, sell or offer to sell all or any part of the content or Sites, or download or otherwise copy (whether directly or indirectly) any content, files or data from the Sites to make or populate a database or publication of any kind whatsoever.

You agree not to use our Sites for any commercial or business purposes, and we have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.

You are responsible for ensuring that all persons who access our Sites through your internet connection are aware of these terms and other applicable terms and conditions, and that they comply with them.


Making your use of the Sites enjoyable means we need to fix bugs, install updates and carry out general diagnosis and maintenance of the Sites.  We will try to carry out such scheduled maintenance during times when we anticipate that online use is lower than normal.

We also need to be able to carry out emergency maintenance and/or suspend access to the Sites where, in our reasonable discretion, it is necessary to do so. We will endeavour to have the Sites fully operational as quickly as we are able.


We do not guarantee that our Sites will be secure or free from bugs or viruses.  You are responsible for configuring your information technology, computer programmes and platform in order to access our Sites. You should use your own virus protection software.

You must not misuse our Sites by knowingly introducing viruses, trojans, worms, logic bombs or other material which is malicious or technologically harmful. You must not attempt to gain unauthorised access to our Sites, the server on which our Sites are stored or any server, computer or database connected to our Sites. You must not attack our Sites via a denial-of-service attack or a distributed denial-of service attack. By breaching this provision, you would commit a criminal offence under the Computer Misuse Act 1990. We will report any such breach to the relevant law enforcement authorities and we will co-operate with those authorities by disclosing your identity to them. In the event of such a breach, your right to use our Sites will cease immediately.


The information contained in these terms and on the Sites is for information purposes only and does not constitute advice. You should check any information on the Sites and use your own judgment before doing or not doing anything on the basis of what you see.  Except as may be otherwise stated in these terms, we give no warranties of any kind in relation to the Sites or their content.

Although we make reasonable efforts to update the information on our Sites, we make no representations, warranties or guarantees, whether express or implied, that the content on our Sites is accurate, complete or up to date.

We are not liable for:

(a) any action you may take as a result of relying on any information provided on the Sites or for any loss or damage suffered by you as a result of you taking this action;

(b) any dealings you have with third parties (e.g. other users, advertisers or promoters) that take place using or facilitated by the Sites; and

(c) any liability for losses which are not a foreseeable or likely consequence of (i) your use of the Sites, or (ii) a breach of these terms.

We will not be liable for losses that fall into one or more of the following categories: loss of income or revenue; loss of business, loss of profits, loss of anticipated savings, loss of data or loss of goodwill.

Different limitations and exclusions of liability may apply to liability arising as a result of the purchase of products by you which will be set out in our terms and conditions where the products are owned and sourced by us or in a partner’s terms and conditions where you purchase the product from a partner.

We are not responsible if you cannot access the Sites properly or at all because of any event outside our control, for example (without limitation) the performance of your or our ISP, your browser or the Internet.

The Sites rely in part on software to work. Software has bugs. Whilst we will monitor the Sites and try to fix bugs, we cannot guarantee that the Sites or any individual feature of the Sites will be error free, available all the time and/or free from viruses.

Nothing in these terms will affect any liability we may have for death or personal injury arising from our negligence, for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation or any other liability which cannot be excluded or limited by law.


You agree fully to indemnify, defend and hold us, and our officers, directors, employees, agents and suppliers, harmless immediately on demand, from and against all claims, liability, damages, losses, costs and expenses, including reasonable legal fees, arising out of any breach of the terms by you or any other liabilities arising out of your use of the Sites, or the use by any other person accessing the Sites using your account and/or your personal information.


If you choose, or you are provided with, a user identification code, password or any other piece of information as part of our security procedures, you must treat such information as confidential. You must not disclose it to any third party.

We have the right to disable any user identification code or password, whether chosen by you or allocated by us, at any time, if in our reasonable opinion you have failed to comply with any of the provisions of these terms.

If you know or suspect that anyone other than you knows your user identification code or password, you must promptly 'Contact Us'.


We will use your personal information in accordance with our privacy and cookies policy which forms part of these terms. Please read our Privacy and Cookies Policy


If any part or provision of these terms is found to be unlawful or unenforceable, that provision shall be deemed to be removed and it shall not affect the validity of any other part or provision of the terms.


If we delay in or fail to, at any time to insist upon performance of any of your obligations or we fail to exercise any of the rights or remedies to which we are entitled, this shall not constitute a waiver of such rights or remedies, nor relieve you from compliance with such obligations. A waiver by us of any default shall not constitute a waiver of any subsequent default. No waiver shall be effective unless it is expressly stated to be a waiver and is communicated to you in writing.


These terms, their subject matter and their formation, are governed by English law. If you are a consumer, you and we both agree that the courts of England and Wales will have exclusive jurisdiction except that if you are a resident of Northern Ireland you may also bring proceedings in Northern Ireland, and if you are resident of Scotland, you may also bring proceedings in Scotland.

If you are a business, these terms, their subject matter and their formation (and any non-contractual disputes or claims) are governed by English law. We both agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.
