Law and Jurisdiction

Xchanging maintains this Site in the UK through a third party provider and you agree that these terms of use and any legal action or proceeding relating to this Site shall be governed by English law without reference to its choice of law rules. If you attempt to bring any legal proceedings against Xchanging you specifically acknowledge that Xchanging is free to choose the jurisdiction of our preference as to where such action against us may be held. As you have agreed by using this Site to choose English law and to govern any such proceedings, we will probably choose to defend any such action in England and we can make this decision entirely as it suits us, without regard to where in the world you are located, or from where in the world you visited this Site.
You are responsible for complying with the laws of the jurisdiction from which you are accessing this Site and you agree that you will not access or use the information on this site in violation of such laws. Unless expressly stated otherwise herein, any information submitted by you through this site shall be deemed non-confidential and non-proprietary. You represent that you have the lawful right to submit such information and agree that you will not submit any information unless you are legally entitled to do so. Because of the open nature of the internet, we recommend that you not submit information you consider confidential.
Xchanging does not accept unauthorised idea submissions outside of established business relationships. To protect the interests of our current customers and ourselves, we must treat the issue of such submissions with great care. Importantly, without a clear business relationship, Xchanging cannot and does not treat any such submissions in confidence. Accordingly, please do not communicate unauthorised idea submissions to Xchanging through this website. Any ideas disclosed to Xchanging outside a pre-existing and documented confidential business relationship are not confidential and Xchanging may therefore develop, use and freely disclose or publish similar ideas without compensating you or accounting to you. Xchanging will make every reasonable effort to return or destroy any unauthorised idea submissions without detailed review of them. However, if a review is necessary in Xchanging’s sole discretion, it will be with the understanding that Xchanging assumes no obligation to protect the confidentiality of your idea or compensate you for its disclosure or use. By submitting an idea or other detailed submission to Xchanging through this Site, you agree to be bound by the Terms of this stated policy.
