To collaborate effectively there needs to be transparency and openness – and to help this process from our side, we thought we’d set out the ground rules for using this site. So we asked our friendly lawyers to put forward a few ideas. These are now the “General Terms and Conditions” for using the site. If you can see any way of improving these ground rules, let us know.
