    1. Your Responsibilities. You must operate your User Account in accordance with Shaping Change’s directions and in particular, you agree to the following:

      1. You have permission to use and operate your User Account, but the extent of that use and operation is at Shaping Change’s sole discretion. Shaping Change may maintain your User Account differently to the accounts of other

        Users, but Shaping Change must always ensure that it acts reasonably concerning your User Account.

      2. Your User Account must only be operated by you on your own behalf. You must not operate your User Account on behalf of anyone else, including but not limited to an organisation that is not a natural person (Organisation). However, if Shaping Change permits you to open a User Account on behalf of an Organisation, then: (a) the word “you” in these Terms includes both you and the Organisation; and (b) you represent that you are authorised to represent the Organisation and that you have the authority to bind the Organisation to the Terms.

      3. If you connect the Services with a Third Party Service with which you have a user account, you authorise Shaping Change to use information about you available from the Third Party Service and to store your user login information for that Third Party Service. Shaping Change must not intentionally disclose that information to any other party unless Shaping Change is required to do so by a Law. You can read more about what Shaping Change may do with your information in the part of these Terms headed “Privacy Policy”.

      4. You take full responsibility for everything done through your User Account and in particular: (a) you agree not to share the login credentials for your User Account with any other person, or permit any automated use of your User Account without Shaping Change’s consent; (b) you agree to use a password for your User Account that is not easily guessable and likely to remain secure (incorporating upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols); and (c) you agree to notify Shaping Change straight away if you suspect another party has access to your login credentials or if you suspect that another party is conducting activity through your User Account.

      6. You agree that Shaping Change may send you email or other electronic messages concerning your User Account, Shaping Change and its commercial partners from time to time. You will have the right to opt out of some of the information sent.


    1. Your Responsibility for Content. You are responsible for any Content you introduce to the Services. You should be careful about what Content you choose to introduce, because you may not be able to delete Content after you have introduced it. You acknowledge that introducing Content on the Services does not constitute an act of registering that Content for copyright in any jurisdiction. You should ensure that Content you introduce does not enable other Users to locate or identify you.

      You are also responsible for ensuring that the Content you introduce does not breach

      the Intellectual Property Rights of any third party.

    2. Prohibited Content. As a general principle, Shaping Change supports freedom of expression. You acknowledge that Shaping Change considers freedom of expression as a balancing exercise and as a result, Shaping Change reserves its discretion to prohibit certain types of Content.

      infringes a third party’s intellectual property rights, or violates a third party’s rights of publicity or privacy; (e) breaches any Law or would result in civil liability; (f) is fraudulent, false, misleading or deceptive; (g) is racist, defamatory, pornographic, offensive or vulgar; or (h) is intended in any way to cause harm or an unacceptable level of detriment to another User.

    3. Shaping Change’s Rights in respect of Content. You accept that there are some limited rights that Shaping Change and other Users will have concerning your Content. These are not ownership rights, but they constitute usage rights and may affect what Content you decide to introduce. You acknowledge the following:

      1. Shaping Change reserves the right to shift, categorise, delete or amend any Content as Shaping Change sees fit. However, this does not constitute a legal obligation from Shaping Change to any person to take any action whatsoever in respect of Content.

      2. If you own intellectual property rights in the Content you introduce that is not your personal, confidential information (Your Owned Content) to the Services and that Content is designated accessible to Users, then you grant Shaping Change an irrevocable, perpetual and worldwide licence (that is capable of sublicence) to use Your Owned Content solely for the purpose of promoting the Services in Shaping Change’s discretion (the Content Licence).

      3. The Content Licence does not permit us to generate direct commercial returns or income from Your Owned Content either by way of licence or sale. However, you accept and acknowledge that Shaping Change may possibly generate indirect income or commercial benefits for Shaping Change by using Your Owned Content to promote the Services to Users or to other members of the public. Nothing in this clause will prevent you and Shaping Change from entering into a separate licence or contractual relationship under which either or both parties obtain direct commercial benefits through the sale or licensing of your Owned Content.

      4. Any Content (whether it is Your Owned Content or not) that you make available through the Services may be publicly available for other Users to view, and in some cases, re-post, share or modify.

      5. If you give us any feedback concerning the Services, you grant Shaping Change a worldwide, exclusive, royalty-free licence to use any aspect of that feedback (including any information or consequence that follows from or is derived by Shaping Change from that feedback) in any manner that Shaping Change considers appropriate.


    1. What’s not permitted? Shaping Change may suspend, ban or delete your User Account if:

      1. You lie or mislead Shaping Change (and, in some circumstances, other Users) about your details, your Content, or any other User’s Content (including, but not limited to instances where you present a gloss on Content that is misleading, such as writing a false or misleading review).

      2. You introduce Content that is introduced in breach of the Intellectual Property Rights of a third party. This includes any act of plagiarism or of divulging confidential information that you were obligated to protect.

      3. You commence the process of opening a new account after Shaping Change has banned you from the Services or otherwise restricted or terminated your User Account.

      4. You switch your User Account to another user.

      5. You act in a manner that results in detriment to Shaping Change, other Users, or if you act in a manner that Shaping Change considers to be unacceptable in view of generally accepted online etiquette or behavioural standards and policies.

      6. You are involved in any activity that constitutes scraping or replicating Content from the Services for the benefit of other platforms, engines or applications not connected to or approved by Shaping Change, unless the purpose of that activity is for the purposes of assisting search engines or platforms containing public web navigation indexes.

    3. Services not error-free. You acknowledge that the Services are being improved on a consistent basis, and as such are not error-free.

    5. Automated Access. All Automated Access is also subject to these Terms. No

      automated software may access the site until the person responsible for the Automated Access has accepted these Terms. As such, any attempt to obtain Automated Access will be bound by these Terms.

    6. Severability. If anything in these Terms is unenforceable, illegal or void then it is severed and the rest of these Terms remain in force, unless the severance would change the underlying principal commercial purpose or effect of these Terms.

    7. Relationship of the Parties. You and Shaping Change are independent contractors. These Terms do not create a partnership, franchise, joint venture, agency, fiduciary or employment relationship.

    8. Third-Party Beneficiaries. You acknowledge that there may be third-party beneficiaries to these Terms in circumstances where Shaping Change is bound to enforce them in favour of its own licensors, Users or other parties contracting with Shaping Change.

    9. Waiver and Cumulative Remedies. No failure or delay by either party in exercising any right under the Terms will constitute a waiver of that right. Other than as expressly stated in the Terms, the remedies provided in the Terms are in addition to, and not exclusive of, any other remedies of a party under Laws.

    10. Governing Law and Disputes. The Terms are governed by the Laws of the Commonwealth of Australia and disputes must be resolved in the non-exclusive courts of that jurisdiction. You agree that you will not be involved in an action as a class member in a class action and that all disputes must be pursued in your own name only. You and Shaping Change each waive respective rights to seek or be involved in any class action under these Terms or concerning any aspect of the Services.

    11. Entire Agreement. The Terms, the Website Terms and Shaping Change’s policies concerning the Services, together with any of the other documents specifically referred to or incorporated in these Terms by specific reference constitute the entire agreement between the parties and supersede all prior understandings and agreements concerning its subject matter.

  • Protect the rights or property of Shaping Change or its users.

    If Shaping Change uses this information in a manner different than the purpose for which it was collected, then Shaping Change will ask for your consent prior to such use.

    Information sharing and onward transfer

    Shaping Change only shares personal information with other companies or individuals in the following limited circumstances:

  • When Shaping Change has your consent. Shaping Change will usually require opt-in consent for the sharing of any sensitive personal information.

  • When Shaping Change provides such information to Shaping Change’s subsidiaries, affiliated companies or other trusted businesses or persons for the purpose of processing personal information on Shaping Change’s behalf. Shaping Change require that these parties agree to process such information based on Shaping Change’s instructions and in compliance with this Privacy Policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures.

  • When Shaping Change has a good faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to: (a) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request; (b) enforce Shaping Change’s Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations of those Terms;

(c) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues; or (d) protect

against harm to the rights, property or safety of Shaping Change, its users or the public as required or permitted by law.

If Shaping Change becomes involved in a merger, acquisition, or any form of sale of some or all of its assets, Shaping Change will use Shaping Change’s best endeavors to: (a) ensure the confidentiality of any personal information involved in such transactions; and (b) provide notice before your personal information is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

Information security

Shaping Change take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. These include internal reviews of Shaping Change’s data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, including appropriate encryption and physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where Shaping Change stores personal data.

Shaping Change restrict access to personal information to Shaping Change’s employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to process it on Shaping Change’s behalf. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.

Accessing and updating personal information

When you use the Facilities, Shaping Change makes good faith efforts to provide you with access to your personal information and either to correct this data if it is inaccurate or to delete such data at your request if it is not otherwise required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes.

Shaping Change asks individual users to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, corrected or removed before processing such requests, and Shaping Change may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes), or for which access is not otherwise required. Because of the way Shaping Change

maintains certain services in connection with the Facilities, after you delete your information, residual copies may take a period of time before they are deleted from Shaping Change’s active servers and may remain in Shaping Change’s backup systems.


When Shaping Change receives formal written complaints, it is Shaping Change’s policy to contact the complaining user regarding his or her concerns. Shaping Change will cooperate with the appropriate regulatory authorities, including local data protection authorities, to resolve any complaints regarding the transfer of personal data that cannot be resolved between Shaping Change and an individual.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

Please note that this Privacy Policy may change from time to time. Shaping Change will post any Privacy Policy changes on this page and, if the changes are significant, Shaping Change will provide a more prominent notice (including, for certain services, email notification of Privacy Policy changes).
