The use of the Classroom365 website located at https://www.classroom365.co.uk/ and all content, services, and products available at or through the website (collectively referred to as the “Website“) are subject to the following terms and conditions (the “Terms”). The Website is owned and operated by Classroom365 Limited (“Classroom365”). These Terms set forth the legally binding terms and conditions for using the Website.

1. Account and Site Security
If you create a blog or site on the Website, you are responsible for the security of your account and all activities that occur under it. It is prohibited to use misleading or unlawful keywords to describe your blog, which may infringe on the rights of others. Classroom365 reserves the right to modify or remove any inappropriate or unlawful content. You must notify Classroom365 immediately of any unauthorised use of your account or security breaches. Classroom365 disclaims liability for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this security obligation.
2. Responsibility of Contributors
Contributors who post content on the Website must ensure that their content:
- Does not infringe upon the intellectual property rights of any third party and complies with all applicable laws, including the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988.
- Respect third-party licenses and convey any required terms to end users.
- Is free from harmful content such as viruses or malware in line with the Computer Misuse Act 1990.
- Is not misleading, unlawful, or promotes illegal activities.
- Respect the privacy and publicity rights of individuals according to the GDPR and the Human Rights Act 1998.
- Is not advertised through spam or unsolicited messages, which is against the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003.
When you submit content to Classroom365, you grant a limited license for Classroom365 to use that content. However, Classroom365 is committed to removing any content upon request, though some residual copies may remain due to caching.
Classroom365 reserves the right to refuse or remove any content and to terminate or deny access to the Website to anyone for any reason.
3. Payment and Renewal
Subscription terms and renewal procedures must be communicated clearly and upfront, adhering to the Consumer Rights Act 2015. Classroom365 will detail payment terms, and users have the right to cancel with written notice under the regulations provided by the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013.
4.1 Fees and Payment
In accordance with UK law, notably the Consumer Rights Act 2015, when you register for a Services account with Classroom365, you agree to pay the applicable fees, which are detailed and transparent at the point of purchase. Fees are invoiced from the commencement of your services and are billed in advance. Classroom365 will comply with the requirement to provide at least thirty (30) days prior written notice before altering payment terms or fees, per the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013. You retain the right to cancel the services at any point, given a thirty (30) days written notice to Classroom365, ensuring you are not bound by auto-renewal clauses without your express consent, consistent with the automatic renewal laws such as The Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008.
If your service includes access to priority email support, Classroom365 commits to providing technical assistance through email promptly, aiming to respond within one business day, as would be reasonably expected in the UK by the Consumer Rights Act 2015, which demands services to be provided with reasonable care and skill. Priority support for VIP Services is provided more expediently than for users of the standard or free services offered by Classroom365. This support is governed by Classroom365’s standard service practices, procedures, and policies.
5. Responsibility of Website Visitors
Classroom365 acknowledges that, under UK law, including the Defamation Act 2013 and the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008, it is important to ensure that content is not misleading or offensive. However, Classroom365 has not vetted all content posted to the Website and cannot guarantee the accuracy, legality, or non-harmful nature of posted material. By managing the Website, Classroom365 neither endorses nor assumes responsibility for content uploaded by third parties. You are expected to take necessary precautions to guard against malicious software. Any material that may violate intellectual property rights or be subject to additional terms will be identified clearly, and Classroom365 disclaims liability for any resulting damage from your use of the Website.
6. Content Posted on Other Websites
Classroom365 does not monitor all material on external websites linked to or from Classroom365 and has no control over non-Classroom365 websites. Classroom365 does not implicitly endorse linked websites and advises users to exercise caution and protective measures against malware. Classroom365 denies liability for any harm resulting from your use of non-Classroom365 websites.
7. Copyright Infringement and DMCA Policy
Classroom365 respects the intellectual property rights of others as it upholds its own. Under UK law, such as the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988, if you believe your copyright has been infringed by material on Classroom365’s site, you are encouraged to notify Classroom365 in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) Policy. Classroom365 is committed to responding to valid complaints by removing infringing content and disabling links to such content. Classroom365 adheres to UK law in facilitating the resolution of copyright disputes and will terminate access to users proven to be repeat infringers in a manner that is fair and lawful.
8. Intellectual Property
This Agreement does not convey any Classroom365 or third-party intellectual property to you, and all rights, title, and interest in such property remain exclusively with Classroom365. Trademarks associated with Classroom365 and its services are the property of Classroom365 or its licensors. Using the Website does not grant you any rights to use Classroom365 or third-party trademarks.
Classroom365 shall adhere to the UK Code of Non-broadcast Advertising and Direct & Promotional Marketing (CAP Code) and ensure that all advertisements are clear, honest, and not misleading. If you purchase an ad-free account, Classroom365 guarantees the removal of advertisements from your blog, consistent with consumer protection legislation.
While Classroom365 reserves the right to display attribution links such as ‘Blog at Classroom365.co.uk,’ theme author, and font attribution in your blog footer or toolbar, these will be done in a manner that is fair and transparent, in line with the UK GDPR’s transparency obligations.
11. Partner Products
When activating a partner product, you consent to the terms of service of that partner, which Classroom365 ensures comply with UK law. You retain the right to withdraw your consent and deactivate the partner product at any time, as prescribed by the Consumer Rights Act 2015.
12. Domain Names
In registering or transferring a domain name, you acknowledge that the domain name is subject to the policies of ICANN. Classroom365 will provide transparent information about these policies and any associated responsibilities to ensure you understand the terms to which you agree.
Classroom365 may update these Terms and Conditions at its sole discretion. We will notify users of any changes in a manner consistent with UK consumer protection law, which may require more than simply posting the changes online. Your continued use of the Website after such changes will be considered acceptance of the new terms.
Classroom365 respects your right to terminate your account at any time. Should we terminate your account without cause, a proportionate refund will be provided for any pre-paid services, as required by UK consumer law. In cases of breach of this Agreement by the user, Classroom365 will adhere to the legal process, providing proper notice and the opportunity for you to remedy the breach, as stipulated by the Consumer Rights Act 2015.
15. Disclaimer of Warranties
Classroom365 provides the Website “as is” but acknowledges its responsibilities under UK law, which include providing services with reasonable care and skill. Although we disclaim all warranties to the extent permissible by law, this does not affect your statutory rights as a consumer, and any disclaimer is not intended to limit your rights under the Consumer Rights Act 2015. Classroom365’s full Disclaimer Policy can be found here.
16. Limitation of Liability
Classroom365’s liability for any breach of this agreement, negligence, or other tortious action shall not be unreasonably limited. While we exclude liability for indirect or consequential loss to the extent permissible under UK law, we do not exclude or limit our liability to you in any way where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents, or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; and breach of your legal rights in relation to the services. If Classroom365 fails to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill.
17. General Representation and Warranty
You agree to indemnify Classroom365 against all liabilities, damages, losses, costs, fees (including legal fees), and expenses relating to any claim or action brought against Classroom365 arising from your use of the Website or any breach of this Agreement. Classroom365 will provide you with prompt notice of any such claim and allow you to control the defence and settlement of the claim, subject to Classroom365’s right to participate with counsel of its choice and to be indemnified by you.
This Agreement represents the entire understanding between Classroom365 and you. It can only be amended in writing or by an update posted by Classroom365. The laws of the UK will govern this Agreement, and any disputes will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales. The arbitration will be conducted in London under JAMS rules in English, with the right for both parties to enforce the arbitral decision in any competent court. If any provision of this Agreement is found to be unenforceable, the remainder will continue in effect. No breach of this Agreement will be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach. You may not assign your rights under this Agreement without agreement; Classroom365 may assign without restriction. This Agreement benefits and binds the parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns.
