You agree not to rely on content and to determine all relevant factors on your own including (without limitation) accuracy, functionality, quality, reliability, and other relevant factors. We reserve the right to monitor and exercise all other rights of ours, and also to modify or remove any content at any time, but we do not undertake any duty to do so.

Your responsibility and license to others
Unauthorised use of this website may give rise to a claim for damages and/or be a criminal offence. You agree not to upload, post, or otherwise transmit through the site any content or any other materials whatsoever that are or could appear to:
- be defamatory, obscene, invasive to another person’s privacy or protected data, or tortious;
- infringe upon anyone’s intellectual property rights, including any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or right of publicity;
- contain any software viruses or any other harmful computer code, files, or programs, including any designed to interrupt, destroy, or limit the functionality of any computer software or hardware or telecommunications equipment; or
- violate any applicable license, law, or contractual or fiduciary duty or provision, including by exercise of the rights you grant to LAMESE.
The website is provided as is and when available. We may change all content, functionality, and services at our discretion at any time. We may also do this for particular activities even if you have started to participate. We can change a job description, partnership, or volunteering requirement at any time even if you have already applied or committed. Not all opportunities may be posted at all or on the site. We use various methods for pursuing our mission and they are not limited to the site. Also, we or third parties might make a mistake. We reserve the right to correct anything including, but not limited to, content or assistance on the site. We may correct, change, withdraw, or do anything else with a job description or other opportunities even if you have already taken action based on it.
From time to time this website may also include links to other websites. These links are provided for your convenience to provide further information. They do not signify that we endorse the website(s). We have no responsibility for the content of the linked website(s).
We do not deal with persons desiring to be paid for something unless we intentionally enter into a written contract to do so. This means, for example, that we do not pay commissions or other sums to anyone who helps arrange a job, or a project, or other opportunities unless we have expressly contracted to do so in writing prior to any such arrangement. If you submit any information, or an application for someone else without entering into such a contract with us, we will not pay you or anyone else a commission or other amount even if we accept the application, hire the person, take on a project, etc. We may also use, delete, or ignore any information you provided without paying you anything and without undertaking any duties to you or anyone else.
Please do not provide or allow others to provide personal information about you unless, on your own behalf and on behalf of anyone whose information you provide, you:
- Are authorized to transfer data.
- Consent to have all data used and transferred internationally.
Feedback: your license to us
We hope that you will provide feedback so that we may better support, improve, and pursue our mission. In submitting feedback, you agree that you will not infringe or violate the rights of others. In addition, you grant a license to LAMESE (as defined below) for your feedback. You agree that we have no obligation to pay you or anyone else for feedback or for the license to LAMESE.
Feedback means all remarks, data, suggestions, methods, surveys, reports, processes, ideas (including patentable ideas), and other content that you provide by using the sites on any aspect of our mission or operations, whether provided to us or persons working with us and whether provided through the sites, electronic communications, or in other media such as a chat room, survey, report, grant, software tool, bulletin board, forum, or otherwise.
As used above, “license to LAMESE” means a nonexclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, non-terminable, royalty-free, fully paid, transferable, sublicensable, worldwide license to LAMESE to exercise all now or later existing intellectual property rights or other rights of yours or others in the feedback, for purposes of supporting LAMESE’s work in full or in part and in all possible media now known or later developed. The foregoing rights include but are not limited to the right to display, perform, read (on air or otherwise), make available, and publish in public or private sites, newspapers or other media, brochures, reports, and so on, all or part of the feedback and any other information that you provide through or relating to our sites or the content. The license to LAMESE is in addition to any that you may be required to provide under any separate agreement between us and you, including grants or other agreements.
You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless LAMESE and third parties from and against any and all losses, damage, liability, and costs of every nature incurred by any of them in connection with any claim, damage, or loss related to or arising out of the content you provide, your use of content from the sites, use of the sites, any assistance or services provided by us or third parties, any alleged unauthorized use of the site, or any breach or alleged breach by you of these terms. You agree to cooperate fully in the defense of any of the foregoing. We reserve the right, at our own expense, to control exclusively the defense of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, and you will not settle any matter without our consent in a nonelectronic record. Your obligation to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless shall be limited to the extent that you are afforded sovereign immunity under applicable laws. In such cases where your obligation to indemnify may be limited due to the requirements of any applicable laws, you shall be responsible for the ordinary negligent acts and omissions of yourself and your agents and employees causing harm to persons not a party to this agreement.
We may deal with you electronically now and in the future at our respective discretion during the entire course of activities pursued with you. Activities may include, but are not limited to, asking you to electronically sign documents and receive electronic notices. We also reserve the right to deal nonelectronically and to require you to do so.
Notice regarding availability of filtering software
We do not believe that the site contains materials that would typically be the subject of filtering software. Nevertheless, all users are hereby informed that parental control protections (such as computer hardware, software, or filtering services) are commercially available that may assist in limiting access to material that may be harmful to minors.
These Terms and Conditions shall be governed by the laws of Ghana and any dispute arising from these Terms and Conditions or your use of the website shall be subject to the jurisdiction of the Ghanaian courts. If a dispute arises out of or relates to this agreement, and if the dispute cannot be settled through negotiation, you and LAMESE agree to try in good faith to refer the dispute to Arbitration pursuant to the Alternative Dispute Resolution Act 2010.
