Description of Service

The website is an online creative community which enables Creative’s to post photographs, images, video links, audio links and pieces of writing, share comments, opinions and ideas, promote their work, and participate in competitions and promotions.

Your access to and use of the Site may be interrupted from time to time as a result of Site repairs, malfunctioning equipment, maintenance, Site updates or any other reason within or outside the control of the Creative Arts Network. Creative Arts Network reserves the right to suspend or discontinue the availability of the Site and/or any Service and/or remove any Content at any time at its sole discretion and without prior notice. Creative Arts Network may also impose limits on certain features and Services or restrict your access to parts of or all of the Site and the Services without notice or liability.

The Site should not be used or relied upon for storage of your photographs, images, video links and pieces of writing, and will not be responsible for any loss of content.

In short:

We are building a creative community and provide Services to create online profiles. We aim to develop more features and Services in the future. At times things can go wrong and the Service may be interrupted.

Do not rely on the Creative Arts Network for storage of your work. Sometimes things go wrong and the Creative Arts Network is not responsible or liable for lost work.

Registration

The profile section of the Site is called the ‘Collective’. As a condition to using ‘Collective’, you are required to open an account with Creative Arts Network and select a password and username, and to provide registration information. Login permissions may be under an ‘invite only’ policy and if Creative Arts Network deem appropriate, then may be subject to change.

Creative Arts Network can close any account, without reason, without warning at any time. The registration information you provide must be accurate, complete, and current at all times. Failure to do so constitutes a breach of the Terms, which may result in immediate termination of your Creative Arts Network account.

You may not use as a username the name of another person or entity or something that is not lawfully available for use, a name or trade mark that is subject to any rights of another person or entity other than you without appropriate authorisation, or a name that is otherwise offensive, vulgar or obscene.

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and are solely responsible for all activities resulting from the use of your password conducted through your Creative Arts Network account.

The ‘Collective’ is for use by individuals who are ‘creatives’ posting photographs, images, video links and pieces of writing that are their own work. Accounts may not be opened by galleries, agents and other market intermediaries and entities that represent creatives or sell their works. If you do not qualify for registration you are not permitted to open an account or use the Services.

Data protection Act 1998: Creative Arts Network and New Community Church will only use personal data in connection with its charitable purposes.  It does not make personal data available to any other organisation or individual.

In short:

To fully use the ‘Collective’ you will need to create your own account, without violating other peoples' rights. Accounts may only be available on an ‘invite only policy’ and if the Creative Arts Network deem appropriate, then may be subject to change.

The Creative Arts Network can close any account, without reason, without warning at any time.
