Our Platform, including the Big Team Challenge service, is operated by Team Challenge Apps Ltd (also referred to as “we”, “us” or “our”), a company registered in Scotland with company number SC517746 and registered office at Clyde Offices Team Challenge Apps Ltd, 2nd Floor, 48 West George Street, Glasgow, Scotland, G2 1BP.
We provide our client organisations (being limited companies, registered charities, public or local authorities or otherwise) (our “Clients”) with the ability to set up and purchase step and/or exercise challenge initiatives (“Challenges”) for our Clients’ users to participate in. We have separate terms of service with our Clients.

You must not use our Platform if you are under 12 years of age.
At our discretion, we may refuse your application for registration. If your application for registration is accepted, provided you have completed all mandatory information required, you will be given access to the Platform shortly after registering.
Each account is for a single user only. You must not share your username and password with any other person or with other users on a network.
You accept sole responsibility for all use of, and for keeping safe and confidential, any password that may have been given to you or chosen by you for use on the Platform. You will notify us immediately of any unauthorised use of them or any other breach of security of the Platform of which you become aware.
You undertake that all information provided by you for the purposes of registering with us is accurate and complete. If any of your information changes, it is your responsibility to ensure that your account and profile is kept up to date.
We have the right to disable any account 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 T&Cs or there is a threat of harm or security to us, our Platform, or other persons.
You can terminate your account at any time by logging into your account and going into your settings.
We may from time to time change the content or functionality of the Platform, or suspend or discontinue all or any aspect of the Platform, which may include losing your access to it or your ability to continue using it. If we do so, we will not be liable to you for any impact that any change, suspension or discontinuation may have on you.
As well as what is set out in these T&Cs, your use of our Platform, and conduct we expect from all users of our Platform is, governed by our Acceptable Use Policy, annexed to these T&Cs and which we may update from time to time. Please ensure you read the Acceptable Use Policy as it forms part of these T&Cs.

Please contact us (our contact details are in section 1 above) if you suspect any User Content uploaded by another user is in breach of these T&Cs or the Acceptable Use Policy, or you believe your rights in respect of your User Content are being, or have been, infringed.
We will determine in our discretion whether any User Content has breached these T&Cs (and/or violated the Acceptable Use Policy). Where we believe such a breach has occurred, we may take such action we deem appropriate. Such action may include immediately, temporarily and/or permanently:
For example, we can take down a user’s profile picture if we believe it infringes another person’s rights. Where appropriate, we may decide to take further legal action and/or disclose all relevant information to law enforcement or authorities as we reasonably feel necessary.
In addition to all of our rights set out above, we reserve the right to take down any User Content that you upload to our Platform at any time without notice and without having to give a reason.
The copyright and all other intellectual property rights in the Platform (including the Big Team Challenge - and company - name and logo, site domain name, underlying code, and the look and feel of the Platform itself) belong, and shall continue to belong, to us or our licensor(s).
We grant you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable licence to use the Platform in accordance with these T&Cs (including the Acceptable Use Policy). You must not use or commercialise any of our intellectual property without our express written permission.
It is our Clients’ responsibility to ensure their respective users (that is, you) are informed about Challenges and are given sufficient notice to register, and proper opportunity to participate, before the Challenge begins.
We offer technical support for users via email only and during regular business hours based on UK time. Any non-technical support (including queries from users in relation to their Challenge) are the responsibility of our Clients.

Each of the paragraphs of these T&Cs operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these T&Cs, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaching these T&Cs, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
