To contact us, please email hello@cartercorson.co.uk or telephone 01625 526 979.

Whether or not projects are conducted outside of the United Kingdom, these terms of use, 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.

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

2 Acceptable Use

2.1 Use Of Material; Intellectual Property

The contents of the Website include both content owned or controlled by the Company, and content owned or controlled by third parties and licensed to the Company.

The Company authorises you to view and download a single copy of any material on the Website solely for your personal, non-commercial use. The Website is for your personal, non-commercial use. You agree not to reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, resell or exploit for any commercial purposes, any portion of, use of, or access to the Website.

Copyright of training courses, workbooks, documentation or exercises presented during our work with the Client will remain with the Company. You may not reproduce any materials in any format without written permission from the Company.  You must not modify any paper or digital copies of any materials you have printed or downloaded in any way and you must not use any illustrations, photographs, video or audio sequenes or any graphics separately from accompanying text.

As we use a number of different models and approaches by other authors, we cannot assign the intellectual property rights invested in these works. We also do not transfer any background IPR in work we have designed or ideas we have created prior to working with a Client. To reduce design fees, we do not charge the full time taken to design a module on the understanding that we retain all rights in the work to use on other projects. However, with that in mind, we do not use bespoke confidential scenarios for other clients, nor will we reproduce the same development programme for another client. The precise order, exercises and workbook will only be used for the client retaining us for that piece of work.  Any IPR created during the course of our work with a Client vests in the Company and, unless otherwise agreed in writing with the Client, we do not transfer such IPR to the Client or any User.

If you print, copy or download any part of our Website in breach of these terms of use, your right to use our Website will cease immediately and you must at our option return or irrevocably destroy any copies of materials you have made.
