Thank you for expressing an interest in contributing to the improvement of the User experience on (the ‘Site’) whose raison d’etre is to reveal, publish and disseminate true expertise amongst registered Enthuse experts and non-registered users (whether experts or not) who browse our Site in the quest for expertise. By facilitating an online platform which fosters the promotion of, or search for, expertise, Enthuse makes the Services (as defined below) available via the Site to enable one and all to achieve great things individually or in collaboration with others globally.

Enthuse has agreed to the individual developer terms i.e. the API terms pertaining to various SM Sites enabling Enthuse to offer Users a unique software platform application (‘Platform Application’) to interface with an SM Site originated API.

(B) The Interactive Services:

The Interactive Services include but are not limited to:

When You view and interact with the Site’s Interactive Services, You have the option (by granting Your consent), to share with Enthuse Your UGC from the online pages of one or more SM Sites (to which You are a registered member) via our embedding facilities. You can connect to our Site by making use of Facebook authentication, which once authenticated and verified by Facebook, allows You to immediately and effectively make use of the Enthuse Interactive Services. This means that Enthuse may access and share certain information about You. If You wish to revoke Your consent granted to Enthuse and cease using the Interactive Services, You can do so at any time. Please consult our Privacy Policy for further details.

(C) The Site:

The Site offers the platform which incorporates and utilises the Software and its’ features and functionalities enabling access to and use of the Interactive Services(collectively, the ‘Services’).


This agreement incorporates our Privacy Policy and Cookie Policy by this reference (collectively called the ‘Licence’). By using the Services, You expressly agree to be bound by this Licence and all applicable laws and regulations governing the Services. The Licence forms a legally binding agreement between You and Enthuse in relation to Your access to and use of the Services and applies to all Users of the Services. Enthuse is not responsible for Your use or Your inability to use the Platform Application or any of the Services, including the content, accuracy or reliability of the same as well as the privacy policies, cookie policies and other policies of SM Sites or any other third party websites or web platforms.

Please note that because Enthuse uses the SM Connect Platforms of various SM Sites to facilitate Your use of the Services, if You interact with Enthuse through any SM Connect Platform option then that SM Connect Platform’s terms and conditions, guidelines, privacy and cookie policies also apply to Your use of the Services. If there is a conflict between the Enthuse terms and those which apply to the SM Connect Platform that You connected to us through, the Enthuse terms will prevail as between You and Enthuse and the SM Connect Platform’s terms and conditions will apply as between You and them.

You should read the Licence carefully and ensure that You understand the effect before proceeding to access and use the Services. If You disagree with any part of the Licence, do not use any of the Services. If You violate the Licence, Enthuse may terminate Your use of the Services, bar You from future use of the same, and/or take appropriate legal action against You. Enthuse reserves the right to change the terms of this Licence at any time without notice, effective immediately upon posting on the Site. Please check this page of the Site periodically. You agree that Enthuse will treat Your use of the Services as acceptance of the terms of this Licence going forward including Your continued use subsequent to any changes being posted on the Site.

The following is a partial list of content which is illegal or prohibited on the Site. You agree that You will not submit any UGC to the Site that:


This Licence incorporates our Privacy Policy and Cookie Policy by this reference which apply in full to Your use of Services. Please note that certain information, statements, data, and content (such as photographs) which You may submit to Enthuse e.g. to build Your Enthuse Profile, might, or are likely to, reveal Your gender, ethnic origin, nationality, age, and/or other personal information about You.

11.1 Enthuse does not warrant the validity and accuracy of information on the Site pertaining to the Services or that it is kept up-to-date. The Services are delivered on an “as-is” and “as-available” basis. Enthuse shall use reasonable endeavours to ensure that the Services and any information it holds on You as a result of the Services are kept secure. However, due to the nature of the internet, Enthuse does not represent or warrant to You that:

The Site may contain hyperlinks or produce search results or SM Connect Platforms that reference or link to third party sites throughout the World Wide Web (‘Third Party Sites’). Although Enthuse has created a Platform Application to interface with Third Party Sites i.e. SM Sites via the SM Site originated API, Enthuse does not accept any responsibility for, nor endorse such Third Party Sites and their features, content, advertising, products or other materials on or available from such Third Party Sites or Platform Applications and cannot therefore guarantee, represent or warrant that the content contained in a Third Party Site is accurate, legal and/or inoffensive or that they will not contain viruses or otherwise impact Your computer. Accordingly, by using the Site to search for or link to a Third party Site, You agree and understand that You may not make any claim against Enthuse for any damages or losses, whatsoever, resulting from Your use of the Site to obtain search results or to link to a Third Party Site.

You further understand and agree that in Enthuse’s sole discretion, and without prior notice, Enthuse may terminate its Licence with You and Your account for any reason or no reason, at any time, with or without notice and may therefore choose to suspend or terminate Your access to the Services or exercise any other remedy available. Enthuse may modify or delete any unauthorised UGC if Enthuse believes that the UGC You provided is inconsistent with this Licence or has violated the rights of Enthuse or another Enthuse User. Notwithstanding this, You are solely responsible for and bear the legal risk associated with such UGC anywhere in the world.

13.2 Enthuse may release Your UGC for the sole purpose of administering the Services and this Licence and also if required by law or subpoena, or if necessary or appropriate to release to deal with an unlawful or harmful activity.

For the avoidance of doubt, Enthuse has no obligation to store, maintain or provide You with a copy of any UGC that You or other Users provide when using the Services.

16.4 The limitations on Enthuse’s liability to You in this paragraph 16 shall apply whether or not Enthuse has been advised of or should have been aware of the possibility of any such losses arising.

16.5 Except as expressly set out in this Licence, Enthuse gives no warranties and excludes all other express or implied terms, conditions and warranties including also any implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose to the fullest extent permitted by law.


This Licence incorporates our Privacy Policy and Cookie Policy which together constitute the entire agreement between You and Enthuse in relation to Your use of the Services and supersedes any prior representations, inducements or agreements relating to its subject matter. Should the courts strike-out as invalid or unenforceable or otherwise alter any part of the terms constituting the Licence, the remaining terms shall remain valid and in force.


This Licence shall be personal to You and You may not assign, transfer, sublet, lease or delegate all or any of your rights and obligations, without he prior written consent of Enthuse. Enthuse reserves the right to assign or transfer all or any of its rights and obligations under this Licence to any companies in the same group as Enthuse or other third party. In the event of assignment or transfer, notification will either be given to You by e-mail or posted on the Site.


Failure by either Enthuse or You to exercise or enforce any right conferred shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any such right nor operate so as to bar that exercise or enforcement thereof or of any other right on any later occasion.


You may enforce the terms of this Licence in accordance with the provisions of the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 (the ‘Act’). Except as provided above, this Licence does not create any right enforceable by any person who is not a party to it under the Act, but does not affect any right or remedy that a third party has which exists or is available apart from that Act.


All of the terms in this Licence are governed by English Law and any disputes arising in relation to this Licence and/or the Site are subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts.
