Welcome to The 350 Club ("350 Club") website, located at the350.club (the "Service or the Club"). These Terms of Service (the "Terms") govern your use of our Club and our services, accessible via our Site. To make things easier, the Site and our services are collectively called the "Service” or “Services."
The Service is designed to allow users to engage in conversations with professional peers around the world in order to learn, collaborate and connect via these and the use of board level resources and information.
You are eligible to use the Services if you are a FTSE 350 board member or FTSE 100 or equivalent executive committee member, or one of the small group of Curated Members nominated by the Management for diversity purposes.
Registration and Your Information
If you want to use the Club, you must create an account ("Account") for identity and application purposes. If we reasonably believe that there are doubts as to your identity we will suspend or terminate your Account to protect the wider membership. It’s important that you provide us with accurate information, which is as complete and up-to-date as possible. It is very helpful to us and to fellow members if you can update such information, as needed, to keep it accurate, complete and up-to-date. You agree that you will never disclose your Account password to anyone and that you’ll notify us immediately of any unauthorised use of your Account. Please be aware that you’re responsible for all activities that occur under your Account, whether or not you know about them.
General Practices Regarding Use and Storage
You acknowledge that The 350 Club may establish general practices and limits concerning use of the Service.
To protect Members’ privacy, which we regard as paramount, we currently undertake no recording of any room conversation or events which takes place on The 350 Club site. Events and conversations are bound by Chatham House rules.
The Service includes certain services that are available via a mobile device, including (i) the ability to upload content to the Service via a mobile device, (ii) the ability to browse and use the Service and the Site from a mobile device and (iii) the ability to access certain features through a web app on a mobile device (collectively, the “Mobile Services”). To the extent you access the Service through a mobile device, your service carrier’s standard charges, data rates and other fees may apply. In addition, downloading, installing, or using certain Mobile Services may be prohibited or restricted by your carrier, and not all Mobile Services may work with all carriers or devices. By using the Mobile Services, you agree that we may communicate with you regarding The 350 Club, for instance in relation to forthcoming events, by SMS, MMS, text message or other electronic means to your mobile device and that certain information about your usage of the Mobile Services may be communicated to us. We will endeavour not to be intrusive in this regard.
