We do not monitor the service but we reserve the right to do so. We take no responsibility for material that has not been introduced by us. You acknowledge that you are solely responsible for the form, content and accuracy of any material introduced by you.

4. Disclaimer

Regulatory Compliance

Dental Practice websites are the subject of EU Directives and UK Statutory Instruments concerning the provision of information/communications services on the Internet. The devolved authorities for implementing the legislation in the UK are the General Dental Council (GDC) and the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO). Details of this legislation as it applies to the dental profession can be found at www.valident.co.uk

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is responsible for ensuring that dental practices themselves recognize and implement all the laws that apply to the practising of dentistry in the UK.

The PracticeBox service has been designed to highlight fields that draw attention to specific areas of regulatory compliance. It is the responsibility of the client (preferably the Practice Principal) to ensure the veracity of this website information and that the practice website fulfils all of the compliance regulations applying to the publication of professional websites on the Internet. The Valident Regulatory Compliance service is a branded accreditation service that ensures all of the regulatory compliance requirements in respect of the GDC/CQC/ICO have been fulfilled.

Your Domain Name

PracticeBox hosts your website and a co.uk URL can be purchased for you at no extra cost. When your PracticeBox subscription expires this URL can be transferred to your ownership and will incur an administration fee. Those who already have a URL or who choose to manage a URL purchased on their behalf by PracticeBox, will be entirely responsible for the management arrangements. Other URLs purchased by Dental Focus® Web Design can be used for the benefit of a customer by special arrangement.

Search Engines

Your PracticeBox subscription covers hosting, maintenance, design and management of your website. We give advice on how to maximise the visibility of your website on Search Engines. We cannot make any claim that your site will appear on any particular search engine. Some "search engines" are actually directories which will only include your website upon payment of a fee. Your PracticeBox subscription does not cover this fee.

4. General

We reserve the right at any time, in our sole discretion, to make any changes to these Terms & Conditions. Any changes will be notified to you by e-mail or by publishing the revised Terms & Conditions on the PracticeBox.com site. By continuing to use the service you agree to be bound by such changes.

These Terms & Conditions are to be interpreted in accordance with English law and, in the event of any dispute, you and we irrevocably submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts.

Finally, nothing in these Terms & Conditions is to be interpreted as an attempt to limit or exclude our liability for any personal injury resulting from our negligence, and if you are a consumer, nothing we say affects your statutory rights.
