Action Against Gambling Harms - Website Terms and Conditions

We are Action Against Gambling Harms.

Our mission is to support and encourage research in the gambling and gaming sector, highlighting the potential harms associated with gambling. The technologies used by the gambling industry are increasingly infiltrating our lives. The effects of this can be felt not only by the gamblers themselves but their families and friends, the community and wider society as a whole (Muggleton et al, 2021).

Our key objective is to promote the need for research, and disseminate any useful research out there, so there is better understanding of both the harms that are being experienced as well as possible interventions that may pre-empt or mitigate these harms.

These terms and conditions set out the rules for using our website, actionagainstgamblingharms.org. We’ll refer to them as the “terms” for short.

In addition to these terms, you should also check out our Privacy Notice and Cookies Notice. The Privacy Notice tells you all about how we use your personal information. The Cookies Notice gives you information about the types of cookies we use and how you can control which cookies apply.

9. Please note…

Below are a few more details which are usually in the fine print, but are none the less important:

  • We try to keep the website up to date, but… we cannot always do so and so we make no guarantee that the information on the website is accurate, complete, or up to date.

  • The website is not for commercial or business use. Please note that we only provide website for the purposes of sharing and disseminating research and information. You agree not to use, or seek to facilitate the use of, the website for any commercial or business purposes. We shall have no liability to you for any losses related to you or your business, such as (without limitation) lost data, lost profits or business interruption.

  • Responsibility for loss or damage. If you break the rules set out in these terms, you will only be responsible for damage or loss that could be reasonably predicted to arise from your breach. Similarly, if we break any of the rules in these terms, we will only be responsible for damage or loss that could be reasonably predicted to arise from our breach.

  • We do not exclude or limit in any way our responsibility to you where it would be unlawful to do so. Under the law, there are certain types of responsibility for loss or damage which we cannot legally limit or exclude. This includes death or personal injury caused by our negligence (or the negligence of people working with us) or for fraud.

  • Our total liability is limited/capped. Except for any liability which cannot be limited or excluded by law, or which arises a result of our breaching any of these terms, we do not accept any liability to you for any loss or damage (whether direct or indirect) you or your business may suffer as a result of or in connection with your use of our website. In the event we are (for whatever reason) held liable to you for any loss or damage, our total liability is limited to £250.

  • Delays in action. Just because we may take time to act if you don’t follow these terms does not mean that we agree with your actions, or will not take action in the future.

  • Which law applies? We are a charity based in England and so you and we both agree that these terms are to be governed by English law and the courts of England and Wales will have exclusive jurisdiction.
