By using and access­ing Fringe Fre­quen­cy, you (“you”, “user”, or “end user”) agree to these terms (referred to as the “Terms of Use” or “Agree­ment”). Please read them carefully.

All infor­ma­tion pro­vid­ed on the Site is done so in good faith, and any infor­ma­tion tak­en away is done so at the user’s own risk.

If you do not agree with these terms, please dis­con­tin­ue using this web­site immediately.

1. Intellectual Property Rights

All mate­r­i­al con­tained on the Site are copy­right of fringefrequency.com and its own­er. An exclu­sion to this is con­tent – whether writ­ten, pho­to­graph­ic, audio or video – cre­at­ed by vol­un­teers for use on fringefrequency.com, in which case copy­right remains with those vol­un­teers, unless for­mal­ly agreed otherwise.

This site uses con­tent owned and cre­at­ed by third-par­ties, includ­ing writ­ers, pho­tog­ra­phers, pub­lic­i­ty rep­re­sen­ta­tives, and oth­er licence hold­ers. Fringe Fre­quen­cy does not own con­tent cre­at­ed by exter­nal cre­ators and licence hold­ers. We seek per­mis­sion to use con­tent we have not cre­at­ed, and cred­it this mate­r­i­al when it is used, when­ev­er possible.

For copy­right claims, please see clause 10 below.

You acknowl­edge and agree that all con­tent and infor­ma­tion on the Site is pro­tect­ed by the rights and laws of the Unit­ed Kingdom.

You agree not to copy, mod­i­fy, dis­trib­ute, trans­mit, dis­play, per­form, repro­duce, pub­lish, license, trans­fer, cre­ate deriv­a­tive work from, sell, or re-sell any con­tent or infor­ma­tion obtained from or through the Site.

2. Disclaimer of Liability

All con­tent, infor­ma­tion and links on the Site are pro­vid­ed for enter­tain­ment pur­pos­es only. In any event that we pro­vide advice or rec­om­men­da­tions, such con­tent is offered as a sug­ges­tion only – we do not claim to pro­vide cer­ti­fied edu­ca­tion­al, med­ical, legal or oth­er pro­fes­sion­al advice.

While we do our utmost to ensure the accu­ra­cy of every­thing on fringefrequency.com to the extent per­mit­ted by law, we do not accept any respon­si­bil­i­ty for any state­ment or con­tent from a third-par­ty in the material.

The Site, and its own­er, make no war­ran­ty, express or implied, that con­tent will be reli­able, unin­ter­rupt­ed, time­ly, secure or free from errors. The Site may include inac­cu­ra­cies, tech­ni­cal mis­takes, typo­graph­i­cal errors, bro­ken links, and oth­er unfore­seen errors. Fringe Fre­quen­cy, and its own­er, reserves the right to change the Site con­tent and infor­ma­tion at any time with­out notice.

You use any of the infor­ma­tion on our Site at your own risk. You fur­ther agree that Fringe Fre­quen­cy, and its own­er, will not be held respon­si­ble for any loss caused, whether indi­rect, inci­den­tal, spe­cial, puni­tive or con­se­quen­tial, as a result of your doing, or not doing, any­thing as a result of view­ing, read­ing or lis­ten­ing to mate­r­i­al found on, or through, the Site.

3. Volunteers Agreement

If you cre­ate work for, or sub­mit work to, Fringe Fre­quen­cy, you (the “vol­un­tary team mem­ber” or “vol­un­tary con­trib­u­tor” in this instance) here­by agree to the fol­low­ing terms in this point.

This is a pri­vate­ly-owned vol­un­tary web­site. As such, as a vol­un­tary team mem­ber or con­trib­u­tor, you retain copy­right for any mate­r­i­al you pro­duce, unless for­mal­ly agreed in writing.

The Site, and its own­er, do not claim to own your copy­right mate­r­i­al. You do, how­ev­er, grant Fringe Fre­quen­cy a non-exclu­sive, roy­al­ty-free and irrev­o­ca­ble licence to:

  • Pub­lish such mate­r­i­al in any media and in any for­mat, includ­ing, but not lim­it­ed to, on this domain or any oth­er sub­do­main, in hard copy pub­li­ca­tions, in email newslet­ters, on social media, mobile alerts, and in web feeds.

If your con­tri­bu­tions include mate­r­i­al in which copy­right or oth­er intel­lec­tu­al prop­er­ty is owned by some­one oth­er than your­self, you war­rant that you have the secured autho­ri­sa­tion to use that mate­r­i­al in the licence referred to above.

As a vol­un­tary con­trib­u­tor, you also agree that you will do your best to pro­vide accu­rate and hon­est infor­ma­tion in all con­tent you pro­vide to Fringe Frequency.

Fringe Fre­quen­cy, and its own­er, aims to oper­ate in a fair, accu­rate and hon­est man­ner. This is an enter­tain­ment web­site, but in the event that we, or a con­trib­u­tor, is tack­ling a seri­ous issue in the form of an arti­cle or com­ment, we seek to adhere to the codes of prac­tice set out by the UK Edi­tors’ Code of Prac­tice Com­mit­tee (see The Edi­tors’ Code).

With this in mind, we reserve the right to decline, mod­i­fy, retract, or remove, any­thing that does not meet our stan­dards. As a vol­un­tary con­trib­u­tor, any opin­ions you express are your own, and are not nec­es­sar­i­ly endorsed by Fringe Fre­quen­cy, or its owner.

4. Third-party Organisations, Events and Websites

The Site, and its newslet­ter, may con­tain links to oth­er organ­i­sa­tions and websites.

These links are offered pure­ly as a con­ve­nience and does not indi­cate endorse­ment of, or asso­ci­a­tion with, the par­ty by Fringe Fre­quen­cy or its owner.

In the case of events, Fringe Fre­quen­cy lists events by third par­ties on its web­pages. Infor­ma­tion will be sourced from third-par­ty web­sites, or from the event organ­is­ers direct­ly. Mate­r­i­al from a third-par­ty will be clear­ly marked and a link to the source’s web­site will be pro­vid­ed. These list­ings are pro­vid­ed to you, the user, pure­ly as sug­ges­tions. Fringe Fre­quen­cy, and its own­er, makes no claim to endorse, sup­port, or asso­ciate with third-par­ties host­ing events list­ed on the Site. If you decide to access linked third-par­ty web­sites, or choose to attend an event you found list­ed on this Site, you do so at your own risk.

Media con­tent by oth­er pri­vate indi­vid­u­als and organ­i­sa­tions may also appear on the Site. Fringe Fre­quen­cy makes no claim to own any con­tent cre­at­ed by these pri­vate indi­vid­u­als and organ­i­sa­tions. Fringe Fre­quen­cy pro­vides links to oth­er web­sites pure­ly as sug­ges­tions. Fringe Fre­quen­cy, and its own­er, makes no claim to endorse, sup­port, or asso­ciate with these pri­vate indi­vid­u­als or organ­i­sa­tions it may choose to link to. Once again, if you decide to access linked third-par­ty web­sites, you do so at your own risk.

5. Reserve Rights to Modification

Fringe Fre­quen­cy, and its own­er, reserves the right to change the focus of its web­site, turn it into a reg­is­tered organ­i­sa­tion or com­pa­ny, to shut it down, sell it, become a paid plat­form, or to change the Terms of Use at our discretion.

Please check these Terms of Use reg­u­lar­ly to ensure you are aware of any mod­i­fi­ca­tion made by us.

We are not respon­si­ble for the actions of any adver­tis­ers or spon­sors. If you, the user, buy a prod­uct or ser­vice based upon a review, rec­om­men­da­tion or link from the Site, you must take action with the exact par­ty to resolve any issues you may have – not with Fringe Fre­quen­cy, or its owner.
