Terms and conditions

These Terms and Conditions constitute a legal agreement between you, as the user of the SILK Website, and SILK Ventures Limited, as the owner of the Website. Throughout these Terms and Conditions we will refer to you as "you", and we will refer to SILK Ventures Limited, as "we", "us", "SILK" or “SILK Ventures”

1. Application

These Terms and Conditions set out the general terms governing your use of the Website. They apply to you as soon as you first use the Website, and you are deemed to have agreed to be bound by them upon your first use of the Website. If you do not wish to continue to be bound by these Terms and Conditions, please stop using the Website now.

2. Intellectual Property

The Website may include at any given time text, graphics, logos, icons, images, sound clips, video clips and data compilations, and together with the Website's page layout, underlying ode and software we refer to all of these as "Content".

All of the Content is the property of SILK, our affiliates or third parties with whom we do business, and this means that it is protected by United Kingdom and international intellectual property laws and other relevant laws. This means that, except as provided by Part 1, Chapter 3 of the UK Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 (which contains what are generally known as the "fair use" provisions for copyrighted materials), you may not reproduce, copy, distribute, store or in any other fashion re-use material from the Website unless otherwise indicated on the Website or unless given express written permission to do so by SILK. For the avoidance of doubt, data mining or scraping the Website without the express written permission of SILK is not permitted.

3. Links to Other Websites

This Website may contain links to other websites. Unless we expressly say otherwise, you should assume that these other websites are not under the control of SILK or our affiliates. We assume no responsibility for the content of such websites, and we disclaim liability for any and all forms of loss or damage arising out of the use of them. Additionally, even if we include a link to another website on this Website, that does not mean that we endorse that other website or in any way recommend that you should use it.

4. Disclaimers

  • No part of this Website is intended to constitute advice, and the Content of this Website should not be relied upon when making any decisions or taking any action of any kind.

  • The Website is provided "as is" and on an "as available" basis, and we give no warranty that it will be free of defects and / or faults.

  • We accept no liability for any disruption or non-availability of the Website resulting from external causes including, but not limited to, ISP equipment failure, host equipment failure, communications network failure, power failure, natural events, acts of war, or legal restrictions and censorship.

  • To the maximum extent permitted by law, we accept no liability for any direct or indirect loss or damage, foreseeable or otherwise, including any indirect, consequential, special or exemplary damages arising from your use of the Website or any information contained in it, and you use the Website and its Content at your own risk. This is not intended to exclude or restrict our liability for death or personal injury arising from your use of the Website.

  • Users should be aware that they use the Website and its Content at their own risk.

  • Nothing on this site should be construed as an offer, invitation or general solicitation to buy or sell any investment or securities, provide investment advisory services, make personal recommendations or to engage in any other transaction, and must not be relied upon in connection with any investment decision.

5. Severability

We have made every effort to ensure that these Terms and Conditions adhere strictly with the relevant provisions of the UK Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977 and other applicable laws. However, in the event that any of these provisions are found to be unlawful, invalid or otherwise unenforceable, that provision is to be deemed severed from these Terms and Conditions and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining Terms and Conditions. This clause on "Severability" shall apply only within jurisdictions where a particular term is illegal.

6. No Waiver

In the event that either you or we fail to exercise any right or remedy contained in these Terms and Conditions, that does not mean you or we (as applicable) have waived that right or remedy and so shall not be construed as a waiver.

7. Variations

This site is for general information purposes only and is subject to change without notice. If we update these Terms and Conditions, we will post a new version on the Website, and as soon as you use the Website after they are posted, you will be deemed to have agreed to the updated version, but you will still be bound by the terms of any previous versions to which you have agreed or been deemed to agree. If there is a conflict between two versions of the Terms and Conditions to which you have agreed or been deemed to agree, the more recent version shall take precedence unless it is expressly stated otherwise.
