We are the owner or the licensee of all intellectual property rights in our Website, and in the material published on it. Those works are protected by copyright laws and treaties around the world. All such rights are reserved.

We retain all intellectual property and other rights in the Service, any Technical Services deliverables and related Voco technology, templates, content, formats and dashboards, including any modifications or improvements to these items made by Voco.

11. Community Guidelines

Voco's mission is to create a community based around mutual support and respect, and we therefore have some clear guidelines for what is and is not appropriate behaviour. By joining the community, all members agree to abide by the following rules of engagement:

  1. Your match is made for professional purposes, with the intention of mutually supporting a peer in their work and career development. You should be willing to receive similar support in return.
  2. You are wholly responsible for what you share with others; this includes market sensitive and confidential information.
  3. Please respect others’ privacy at all times. What you discuss and disclose is confidential and should never be shared with anyone outside of your connection without prior agreement.
  4. Please respect that other people in the community have had different life experiences and may have a different perspective to yours. 
  5. The match is not for the purposes of advertising, sales, recruitment or other commercial reasons. 
  6. Any offensive or discriminatory content; or sharing of fraudulent, deceptive or misleading content or content that would deliberately harm another person is unacceptable 
  7. Defamatory, indecent, offensive, profane, discriminatory, threatening comments and language are absolutely not welcomed in the Voco Community.
  8. Harassment of any kind will not be tolerated. “Harassment” means any unwanted, unwelcome or uninvited behaviour of a racist, sexual or bullying nature which a reasonable person in the circumstances would find humiliating, intimidating or offensive. 

Voco reserves the right to suspend or remove anyone from the community who does not abide by these guidelines; and may investigate if complaints are made against individuals. Voco can exclude further access indefinitely.

12. Applicable law

These terms of use, their subject matter and formation, are governed by English law. You and we both agree to that the courts of England and Wales will have exclusive jurisdiction except that if you are a resident of Northern Ireland you may also bring proceedings in Northern Ireland, and if you are resident of Scotland, you may also bring proceedings in Scotland.
