We may revoke the permission and/or rights granted in these Terms at any time without notice and with or without cause.

We shall decide, in our sole discretion, whether or not you qualify to become a mentor or mentee and are eligible to participate in the Mentoring Programme.

Registration data

When you register for the Mentoring Programme on the Website, we will ask you to create a user profile which contains certain information as further described in our Privacy Policy in order to match you with a suitable mentor or mentee. You agree to (a) provide accurate, current and complete information in your profile, (b) promptly update your profile, and any other information you provide to us, as appropriate, and (c) maintain the confidentiality of your profile as well as your user name, password and any other authentication information in connection with your account. You are entirely responsible for all activities that occur through use of your user name, even if another person was using your account at the relevant time.

You hereby authorise us to verify your profile to the extent permitted by applicable law if we deem this is necessary to confirm your identity and your suitability and eligibility to be a mentor or mentee. However, we shall be under no obligation to verify your profile and may rely on the information contained in it without taking any further action.

You consent to receiving communications and notices from us at the email address you provide in your profile or otherwise elect in your account settings.

We have the right to disable any user name, password, or other authentication information in connection with your account whether chosen by you or allocated by us, at any time, if in our reasonable opinion you have failed to comply with any of the provisions of these Terms.

The Website may contain links to third party websites and services (“Third Party Sites and Services“). The links to these Third Party Sites and Services are provided for your convenience only.

Disclaimer & limitation of liability

You acknowledge that you may operate in locations or situations where there may be an inherent risk of physical danger. The information and advice that you receive from a mentor through participation in the Mentoring Programme may conflict in places, and may not be up-to-date or reliable, particularly in emergency situations. You must (a) always consider the potential risks involved in any given situation, (b) make use of a wide range of information/advice, security and risk-management resources available to you (i.e. not just the information or advice received from a mentor), and (c) always exercise your own informed and reasonable judgment regarding the best course of action to follow. You acknowledge and agree that any actions taken by you, whether in reliance on the advice provided by a mentor or otherwise, are by your decision alone and are undertaken entirely at your own risk. We are not responsible or liable for any reliance you place on the information/advice received from a mentor and any resulting action that you may choose to take.

Accordingly, to the maximum extent permitted by law and subject to the sections below, we are not responsible or liable for any physical injuries (including death) or damages you may sustain in connection with any action you take as a result of your use of, inability to use or your reliance upon the information and advice received from a mentor or through the Website, any of its features or any third-party applications or sites to which the Website provides access.

We provide the Website on an “as is” and “as available” basis. We make no guarantee that the Website will be uninterrupted, error free, or free from viruses or other harmful components. While we take reasonable precautions to prevent the existence of computer viruses and/or other malicious programs, we accept no liability for them. We also make no promises or guarantees, whether express or implied, that the content within or made available via the Website is accurate, complete or up-to-date. To the extent permitted by law, we exclude all conditions, warranties, representations or other terms, which may apply to the Website and/or Mentoring Programme, whether express or implied.

We have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity. We also do not accept any liability or responsibility for any loss (howsoever caused) arising out of or in connection with any damage to your device.

PMAP’s maximum liability under or in connection with these Terms whether in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise, shall in all circumstances be limited to GBP 10.

Nothing in these Terms will limit or exclude PMAP’s liability for (a) death or personal injury resulting from our negligence, (b) fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation, and/or (c) any other liability that cannot be excluded or limited by applicable law. Furthermore, nothing in these Terms restricts your legal rights as a consumer.


You are solely responsible for your interactions with your mentor or mentee, as applicable, and any disputes that may result from such interactions. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor disputes between you and your mentor or mentee, as applicable.


You agree to compensate and hold PMAP, its affiliates and each of its directors, officers, agents, contractors, partners and employees, harmless from any loss, liability, claim, or demand, including reasonable legal fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of your use of the Website, any information you post on the Website, your participation in the Mentoring Programme and/or arising from a breach of these Terms.


We may terminate these Terms and your permission to use the Website and/or participate in the Mentoring Programme immediately if (a) you commit any breach of these Terms, (b) we discontinue the Website and/or Mentoring Programme, (c) we are prevented from providing the Website or Mentoring Programme for any reason, or for any other reason as we see fit.

Furthermore, we reserve the right to change, edit, suspend, delete and/or cancel any part of the Website (and/or your access to it) and/or the Mentoring Programme at any time with or without notice to you.

You may terminate your participation in the Mentoring Programme for any reason provided that you give us notice in writing or by email to support@pmap.email.

On termination of these Terms for any reason (a) all rights granted to you under these Terms will immediately cease, (b) you must immediately cease all activities authorised by these Terms (including your use of the Website and participation in the Mentoring Programme), and (c) you acknowledge that we may restrict your access to the Website and/or Mentoring Programme.

When your use of the Website and/or participation in the Mentoring Programme ceases, any provision of these Terms that expressly or by implication is intended to come into or continue in force on or after termination shall remain in full force and effect.

Communication between us

If you wish to contact us in writing, or if any condition in these Terms requires you to give us notice in writing, you can send this to us by e-mail using the contact details at the bottom of these Terms. If we have to contact you or give you notice in writing, we will do so by e-mail using the contact details you provide to us.

Other important items

We may transfer our rights and obligations under these Terms to another organisation, but this will not affect your rights or obligations under these Terms.

If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not enforce any of our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived any of our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.

Each of the conditions of these Terms operates separately. If any court or competent authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining conditions will remain in full force and effect. Other than as expressly set out in these Terms, no third party is intended to have any right or ability to enforce any of the provisions of these Terms.

These Terms are governed by English law and the courts of England and Wales will have exclusive jurisdiction.

Changes to terms

We may change these Terms at any time. Your continued access or use of the Website or participation in the Mentoring Programme after such a change signifies your acceptance of the updated or modified Terms. We may email registered users about any material changes to the Terms and we may notify you of a change to these Terms when you next log in to the Website. The new terms may be displayed on-screen and you may be required to agree to them to continue your use of the Website and/or participation in the Mentoring Programme.
