Below we have outlined our Terms of Service that help all of us stay protected and in control.
When we say “we”, “our”, or “us” in this document, we are referring to the Association for the Prevention of Torture. We are a small non-for-profit organisation based in Geneva, Switzerland, which developed the Torture Prevention Learning Village experience and content.
When we say “Services”, we mean any product, website or application created and maintained by the Association for the Prevention of Torture. That includes any instance of the Torture Prevention Village, whether delivered within a web browser, desktop application, mobile application, or any other format.
We may update these Terms of Service in the future. Usually, the changes will be to clarify some of these terms or add new ones as we expand the product. Whenever we make a significant change to our policies, we will share that with you via email.
When you use our Services, now or in the future, you are agreeing to the latest Terms of Service. This is true for any of our existing and future products and all features that we add to our Services over time. There may be times where we do not exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms of Service; in doing so, we are not waiving that right or provision. These terms do contain a limitation of our liability. If you abuse or violate any of the terms, we reserve the right to terminate your account. We will be open and transparent in this communication and try to resolve the situation beforehand.
You expressly understand and agree that the APT shall not be liable, in law or in equity, to you or to any third party for any direct, indirect, incidental, lost profits, special, consequential, punitive or exemplary damages, including, but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data or other intangible losses (even if the APT has been advised of the possibility of such damages), resulting from: (i) the use or the inability to use the Services; (ii) the cost of procurement of substitute goods and services resulting from any goods, data, information or services purchased or obtained or messages received or transactions entered into through or from the Services; (iii) unauthorised access to or alteration of your transmissions or data; (iv) statements or conduct of any third party on the service; (v) or any other matter relating to this Terms of Service or the Services, whether as a breach of contract, tort (including negligence whether active or passive), or any other theory of liability.
