You can review the most current version of the TOS at any time by clicking the link in the footer of the ICPKP® website. In addition, when using particular ICPKP® services, you shall be subject to any posted guidelines applicable to such services. All such guidelines are hereby incorporated by reference into the TOS.
By using this website and/or completing the registration process and checking the ‘I accept’ button, you agree to be bound by these TOS, so please read them carefully.
Description of service
ICPKP® currently provides users with access to a collection of on-line resources, which may include online forums, eCommerce services, personalized content and ICPKP® promotional and workshop material through its online properties (the “Service”). Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features that augment or enhance the current Service, including the release of new ICPKP® workshops or properties, shall be subject to the TOS. You understand and agree that the Service is provided ‘as-is’ and that ICPKP® assumes no responsibility for the timeliness, deletion, mis-delivery or failure to store any user communications or personalization settings.
In order to use the Service, you must have appropriate access to the World Wide Web, using one of ICPKP®’s supported Web Browser tools.
Your registration obligations
In consideration of use of the Service, you agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Service’s registration form (your ‘Personal Info’) and (b) keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or ICPKP® has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, ICPKP® has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service. ICPKP® is concerned about the safety and privacy of all its users, particularly children. For this reason, only a ICPKP® Instructor may download ICPKP® Instructor resources. Please be aware that ICPKP® workshops contain anatomical diagrams and photos that in some cultures may be regarded as adult or mature content. You must be at least 18 years of age to access and view such workshops. ICPKP® respects the intellectual property of others, and we request our users to do the same.

You and ICPKP® agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within Auckland, New Zealand. The failure of ICPKP® to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the TOS shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the TOS is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavour to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the TOS remain in full force and effect. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Service or the TOS must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
