7.1.1 Here are some important details about how to read the Contract.
If a court with authority over this Contract finds any part of it not enforceable, you and us agree that the court should modify the terms to make that part enforceable while still achieving its intent. If the court cannot do that, you and us agree to ask the court to remove that unenforceable part and still enforce the rest of this Contract. To the extent allowed by law, the English language version of this Contract is binding, and other translations are for convenience only. This Contract (including additional terms that may be provided by us when you engage with a feature of the Services) is the only agreement between us regarding the Services and supersedes all prior agreements for the Services.
7.1.2 If we don't act to enforce a breach of this Contract, that does not mean that Inspire has waived its right to enforce this Contract. You may not assign or transfer this Contract (or your membership or use of Services) to anyone without our consent. However, you agree that Inspire may assign this Contract to its affiliates or a party that buys it without your consent. There are no third-party beneficiaries to this Contract.

8.1 You will not;
8.2 Inspire Code of Conduct (aka Acceptable Use and Professional Community Guidelines)
The following applies to Members in addition to users of our website and other Services.
8.2.1 Kindness, care and compassion
Members shall look to demonstrate kindness through their interactions with one another, and be careful to support and build one another up. Members will not be aggressive towards one another or harass any other Member. They agree not to post deceitful, inaccurate, defamatory, obscene, shocking, hateful, threatening or otherwise inappropriate content or air personal grievances or disputes while using our Services.
Members agree to be understanding of one anothers’ differences, including the right to have a different opinion and enjoy freedom of speech, and to be compassionate towards others who may need their support. We seek to protect those in our community and as such Inspire will not tolerate malicious or rude behaviour within our membership.
8.2.2 Integrity – Members agree that they will behave honestly and openly
Members shall provide accurate information to Inspire and keep it updated, using their real name on their profile and an image that is their true likeness on Facebook if they choose to be present within our groups. They must not create a false identity on Inspire or create a profile for anyone other than themselves as an individual. They will not misrepresent their identity (e.g. by using a pseudonym), their current or previous positions, qualifications or affiliations with a person or entity; The occasional creation of clearly fictional profiles by Inspire or with its express permission in connection with a promotional campaign does not waive this obligation. At Inspire we try to always keep our Members informed of what we’re doing and to be transparent in how we run the organisation.
8.2.3 Respect the Privacy of Others
Members should not disclose anything that is shared by another Member within a networking meeting, the Inspire Hub™, our Facebook groups, or at any other event that we have organised, to anyone not present or party to the discussion, except with the Member’s permission. This excludes situations where it would be unlawful to fail to disclose something that has been shared e.g. intention to commit a crime or disclosure that a crime has been committed.
We ask our Members to ensure they behave in a way that is considered to be professional. This includes treating others with respect, avoiding the use of inappropriate language, and to look for ways to build others up and support them as businesswomen.
We are a networking community and ask our members to refrain from underhandedly prospecting for their businesses, including through the use of promotion of links that may be considered to be lead magnets, when using our Services. We encourage networking in the sense of building relationships with other business owners to see what may come of it, but our Services should not be used for the purposes of trying to sell or promote goods or services to other members using our online platforms, other than within the Marketplace within The Inspire Hub™ and on any designated social media threads created by our Admins.
The sharing of any relevant content is welcome provided this does not breach any of our Terms and Conditions, and is not self-promotional or being shared for the purposes of marketing, prospecting or for personal financial gain. Content from Members own blogs shouldn’t be shared unless accompanied by an explanation of why it is being shared and how it is relevant to Members. Promotional posting is a right reserved exclusively for our Sponsors.
In the spirit of encouraging networking, opportunities shall be made available for Members to share their blog post links and other self-promotional content on clearly indicate threads which shall be posted by Group Administrators from time to time.
As a general guide, posts should not contain links, be shares from your business social media profiles, your own corporate materials or be focused on promoting your work. If Members should come across something that they perceive to be useful, we encourage them to share it with the community, as long as this activity is (1) not intended to drive sales to the original source, and (2) where it is being shared for no purpose other than to help educate others within the community, and this is clearly demonstrated in the content of the post. Please note that the sharing of affiliate links by Members is not permitted.
Members are expected to be capable of understanding whether their content is of a nature that is self-promotional and designed to elicit sales and enquiries, and understand that our Group Administrators shall utilise their judgement as to what is considered to be unacceptable content and may remove this without notice. On Facebook, they may also place members on post approval to ensure that the community is not exploited. They may change group settings so that all posts require pre-approval if they deem this to become necessary.
8.2.5 Collaboration over competition
There will be other people in our membership who do what you do professionally, although they will do it differently to you! We are a community for people rather than businesses, so we encourage members to avoid viewing other people in the community as competitors and see them as human beings instead. We encourage Members to look for ways that they can share best practice, ideas, resources etc. which can be beneficial to all concerned.
Do what you say you’ll do as a Member. Members must comply with all applicable laws, including, without limitation, privacy laws, intellectual property laws, anti-spam laws, export control laws, tax laws, and regulatory requirements. We won’t tolerate unlawful or unprofessional conduct in connection with our Services, including being dishonest, abusive or discriminatory. You must not use or attempt to use another's account; Harass, abuse or harm another person; Post or send any unsolicited or unauthorised advertising to members. This includes sending advertising messages or any other unsolicited messages to members from within The Inspire Hub™ or our Facebook groups without first obtaining consent openly within the community;
We respect the intellectual property rights of others. We require that information posted by Members be accurate and not in violation of the intellectual property rights or other rights of third parties. We provide a policy and process for complaints concerning content posted by our Members in Section 6 of this document.
