Who we are

We provide a platform to deliver the following (the “Services”):
Non-profit organisations can post opportunities for volunteers with financial skills
Individuals looking for voluntary work can search these opportunities and apply to the non-profit opportunity directly through the Site
Charterpath provides assistance, information, support and guidance about volunteering and related issues to site users; and
Individuals can register to join the Charterpath database and mailing list
Responsibilities for all users of this site
You will use the Site for honest purposes and not to encourage any unlawful purpose. Charterpath may at its discretion deny you access to the Site without warning or explanation if you breach these terms or if we believe it is necessary to protect our interests or those of other Users.
You will not post or transmit on the Site any libellous, abusive, threatening, harmful, vulgar, obscene or otherwise objectionable material. It is possible that you will communicate outside of our Services with other Users. Whenever you communicate with other Users in the context of the Services, you must not abuse or threaten them, use discriminatory language, mislead them or make them promises you do not intend to keep. Charterpath shall have the right to delete from the Site immediately and without prior notice any material that it deems not to comply or to be objectionable for any reason.
You will not post or transmit on the Site any material which contains any virus or disabling devices which may interfere with the operation of the Site; or which alters or deletes any information which you have no authority to alter or delete; or which overloads the Site by spamming or flooding it. You will not use any device, routine or software to crash, delay or otherwise damage the operation of this Site.
Where another User shares with you in the context of the Services, information which they describe as confidential, or which is obviously confidential, you must not share that information with anyone else without their permission, unless you are required to do so by law. You must not post any confidential information (whether yours or another User’s) which is visible to Users generally, and we will not have any liability if you do.
As the Services of the Site are made available to all Users, you do not enjoy any cancellation of “cooling-off” rights in relation to these Terms and Conditions.
Your additional responsibilities as a Volunteer
You will not post or transmit on the Site inaccurate, incomplete or false information. If we ask you to provide us with certain information about you, such as your full name, contact details and any biographical information, that information must be true, complete and current. You may not register to join us using an assumed name or someone else’s identity.
Our Services allow you to apply for volunteer roles directly, submitting a copy of your CV. You should not apply for a job unless, based on the information which the Non-profit has provided, you are reasonably satisfied that you have the skills, knowledge, resources and experience necessary for the opportunity.
Your additional responsibilities as a Non-profit
Our role is to provide the platform facilitating these connections, not to oversee them, and we are not party to any subsequent engagement between Volunteers and Non-profits. We do not operate a vetting procedure nor do we run background checks and therefore we cannot take responsibility for the accuracy or completeness of information that any Users provide.
Our Services are only open to Non-profits who are directly looking to recruit a Volunteer. You may not use this site or promote an opportunity on behalf of another Non-profit nor duplicate roles by copying other adverts of third parties or advertised by other agencies. You may not use the Site to promote any third party recruitment website or service. Similarly you may not seek commission in recruiting a volunteer.
Our Services allow you to upload various materials, including text, images and video, which other Users will see. You must ensure that you have all the necessary rights to use that material and to share it with us and with other Users of our Services, and you must ensure that such material does not contain anything which is unlawful, offensive, obscene or defamatory.
You retain all of your ownership rights in your content, but you are required to grant us and Users of the Services a limited licence to use, store and copy that content and to distribute and make it available to third parties. The rights you licence to us are described in the section ‘Intellectual Property Rights’.
All opportunities posted must comply with laws protecting equal opportunities and preventing discrimination. We reserve the right to remove from our Services any opportunity which you post in breach of these terms.
