Terms & Conditions

Community Business Weekend is a festival of events and activities that celebrates the activity of community businesses across England. Our participants are organisations across the country that run events and activities throughout the Weekend. These terms and conditions are for organisations which want to register to take part in Community Business Weekend as a participant.

Participant organisations eligibility criteria
To be a Community Business Weekend participant you must be a community business. You should not be an organisation that in the judgement of the Community Business Weekend team could lead to the organisers being criticised because of your inclusion as a participant.

Any person submitting a request to become a participant agrees that they are authorised to act on behalf of their organisation, including to provide information to Community Business Weekend and to bind their organisation to these terms and conditions.

By providing your details you agree that Power to Change, the Eden Project and Campaign Collective (the project partners) may:

  • Publish details of participants activities on its website and promote them where appropriate
  • Provide participants with Community Business Weekend promotional and educational materials free of charge, where applicable
  • Contact you about Community Business Weekend 2017. Once this campaign has finished your details will be added to the Power to Change database of community businesses

Event or activity eligibility criteria
For an event to be classed as part of Community Business Weekend, it must be hosted by a community business. These are defined as businesses set up and run by the community for public benefit, which reinvest profits into services and activities local people need and want.

The event must use the Community Business Weekend logo (available from the Downloads [Link] section of this website).

The event must be free for the public to attend (although those community businesses which sell products or services are free to do so at the event).

It is the sole right of the project partners to decide if an event meets the suitability criteria for inclusion.

Child protection
If under-18s are able to attend your event, you should state they should be accompanied by a parent or guardian. If you’re running an event specifically for under-18s, you should have the right child protection policies in place.

You must ensure that you have obtained written consent to include any image(s) of a child under the age of 18 from the child’s parent or guardian, before using them in any way, including sending them to the project partners. We will assume all images sent to us have the appropriate permissions in place.

The project partners are not responsible for participants’ events or activities. The project partners do not accept any liability for any loss or damage arising from a participant’s Community Business Weekend’s event or activities. It is for each participant to make their own assessment as to health and safety and insurance, and to comply with relevant laws.

Data protection
The Data Protection Act 1998 regulates the processing of personal information, and sets rules for processing and increasing people’s rights to control how information about them is used. Within the conditions of this Act, your agreement to these terms and conditions confirms your permission for your personal details and those of and supplied by your organisation to be saved within the Community Business Weekend database. Your agreement to these terms and conditions also confirms your permissions to be entered on to the Community Business Weekend mailing list, and for project partners to send you their email newsletter. Participant profile and user details will not be given to anyone outside the project partners without permission. You hereby confirm that you have obtained permission from any person whose details you list on your activity pages that their details may be published on your or the Community Business Weekend website.

If you provide any logo or materials to the project partners, you agree that they can be published by us on the Community Business Weekend and/or Power to Change websites and in any Community Business Weekend materials.

These terms shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of England and Wales.

Breach of these terms and conditions entitles the project partners to cancel your organisation’s registration as a participant without liability and without notice and to withdraw any rights in relation to Community Business Weekend accreditations, rights of use and reproduction rights from your organisation. You must not use any Community Business Weekend materials if your registration is cancelled.
