2.1

In order to become a member of the Online Community you will need to complete either of the
Nation Builder social investment assessments – either the Social Investment Health Check or the more in-depth Benchmarking Tool - annually to ensure renewed access to the Community.
These assessments are available on our website www.proudnationbuilder.co.za, but we will also send out reminders to you closer to the time when re-assessment is required.

 

You agree to never give your password out to another person, except an Online Community administrator.


You also agree to never use another person’s account for any reason. We also highly recommend you use a complex and unique password for your account, to prevent account theft.

We maintain the right to remove posts

7.1

We need to ensure that material posted in the discussion forums is not potentially harmful.
For this reason, we may edit or choose not to publish any post, that contains disrespectful or
derogatory remarks about any other member or that contains advice or content that we believe is
damaging, inappropriate or misleading.

Moderation

8.1

A team of moderators has been entrusted with the ability to intervene when any of these
Community Rules have been breached. However, due to the dynamic nature and the sheer
volume of posts, we aren’t always able to immediately read everything written – therefore much
of the responsibility for maintaining our friendly environment lies with you. Please notify us of any
posts that contravene these terms or are not in the spirit of this collaborative platform, should
they not have been removed immediately.

Miscellaneous

9.1

Nation Builder reserves the right to vary these Terms from time to time in order to take account
of changes to the Online Community or to law. Such variations will take effect immediately
upon the posting of the varied Terms on this Online Community. In continuing to use this Online
Community, you will be deemed to accept such variations.


Nation Builder may terminate your access to this Online Community at any time without notice. In
the event of termination, you are no longer authorised to access the Online Community.


If any provision of these Terms is held to be unlawful, invalid or unenforceable, that provision
shall be deemed severed and where capable the validity and enforceability of the remaining
provisions of these Terms shall not be affected.
