Privacy Statement

Unless you directly engage with us (for example, by sending us an email or registering to a newsletter), we do not collect any personal information when you use the Websites.

However, the Websites use certain third-party services as follows:

Google Analytics: The Websites use Google Analytics as an online resource to analyse traffic on the Websites, which means that some of your personal information may be collected by Google. By using our Websites, you are agreeing to be bound by the Google Analytics Terms of Service (https://marketingplatform.google.com/about/analytics/terms/us/).

YouTube API Services: In addition, the Websites use YouTube API Services as an online resource, which means that some of your personal information may be collected by YouTube.

Clients records are regarded as confidential and therefore these will not be divulged to any third party, other than to agencies contracted by BWF to affect the Services for which you have registered your personal details and if legally required to do so to the appropriate authorities.

Clients have the right to request sight of, and copies of any and all Client Records we keep, on the proviso that we are given reasonable notice of such a request. Clients are requested to retain copies of any literature issued in relation to the provision of our Services. Where appropriate, we shall issue Client’s with appropriate written information, handouts or copies of records as part of an agreed contract, for the benefit of both parties.

We will not sell, share, or rent your personal information to any third party or use your e-mail address for unsolicited mail. Any emails sent by the BWF will only be in connection with the provision of agreed services and products.


Exclusions and Limitations

The information on the Websites is provided on an “as is” basis. To the fullest extent permitted by law, the BWF:

  • excludes all representations and warranties relating to the Websites and their contents or which is or may be provided by any affiliates or any other third party, including in relation to any inaccuracies or omissions in the Websites and/or the BWF’s literature; and
  • excludes all liability for damages arising out of or in connection with your use of the Websites. This includes, without limitation, direct loss, loss of business or profits (whether or not the loss of such profits was foreseeable, arose in the normal course of things or you have advised BWF of the possibility of such potential loss), damage caused to your computer, computer software, mobile device, systems and programs and the data thereon or any other direct or indirect, consequential and incidental damages.

The above exclusions and limitations apply only to the extent permitted by law. None of your statutory rights as a consumer are affected.


The BWF does not warrant that the service from the Websites will be uninterrupted, timely or error free, although it is provided to the best ability. By using this service, you thereby indemnify the BWF, its employees, agents and affiliates against any loss or damage, in whatever manner, howsoever caused.

Force Majeure

Neither party shall be liable to the other for any failure to perform any obligation under any Agreement which is due to an event beyond the control of such party including but not limited to any Act of God, terrorism, war, political insurgence, insurrection, riot, civil unrest, act of civil or military authority, uprising, earthquake, flood or any other natural or man-made eventuality outside of our control, which causes the termination of an agreement or contract entered into, nor which could have been reasonably foreseen.

Any Party affected by such event shall forthwith inform the other Party of the same and shall use all reasonable endeavours to comply with the terms and conditions of any Agreement contained herein.


Failure of either Party to insist upon strict performance of any provision of this or any Agreement or the failure of either Party to exercise any right or remedy to which it, he or they are entitled hereunder shall not constitute a waiver thereof and shall not cause a diminution of the obligations under this or any Agreement. No waiver of any of the provisions of this or any Agreement shall be effective unless it is expressly stated to be such and signed by both Parties.

Failure of the BWF to enforce any of the provisions set out in these Terms and Conditions and any Agreement, or failure to exercise any option to terminate, shall not be construed as waiver of such provisions and shall not affect the validity of these Terms and Conditions or of any Agreement or any part thereof, or the right thereafter to enforce each and every provision. These Terms and Conditions shall not be amended, modified, varied or supplemented except in writing and signed by duly authorised representatives of the Company.
