By using this website, you agree that you will be using it only for lawful purposes. CRAC endeavours to provide, but cannot guarantee, accurate and up to date information via this website. Should you encounter any errors or inconsistencies, please contact CRAC using the details at the bottom of this page so we can rectify it.

Unless otherwise stated, CRAC or our licensors own the intellectual property rights in the website and material on the website. All these intellectual property rights are reserved.
Unless otherwise stated, you are entitled to use the Vitae website for personal use in any way, providing you do not reproduce any of the information as your own and/or seek to profit from it. Personal use constitutes viewing the Vitae website online and printing pages and/or documents for review offline.
If you wish to reproduce any materials accessible on the Vitae website including information, graphics, images and other design elements in printed or electronic form (aside from items available from the Resources database, GRADschools section or for personal use), you must obtain written permission first. Please use the contact details at the bottom of this page if you need to obtain permission.
Linking to the Vitae website is permitted, although displaying our pages within a frame of another website is not as this constitutes reproducing our content as your own.
Many areas of the Vitae website contain links to websites that are not operated by CRAC. CRAC is not responsible for these websites and therefore does not endorse them. Where links are provided, they are merely for related information and your convenience.
In addition to this, Vitae will not accept requests for link exchanges at any time. However, if a website relates directly to an article/page on the Vitae website, we may add a link if we feel it is necessary. The decision to do this will be purely at CRAC's discretion.
The Vitae website automatically collects a small amount of non-personally identifiable data from you when you visit; this is limited to what pages you visit, and at what day/time. It also collects information about what browser and operating system you are using and what domain (internet address) you originate from. This information is collected from our server logs.
The details which you provide about yourself and any other information which identifies you ("Personal Information") are held on our computer system. These details are used for operational purposes, for example to verify your password to allow you access to extra functionality on the website.
We only retain your credit card or billing account details to process the specific payment transaction for which you supplied them, unless you ask us to keep these details for future purchases which you may make through us.
We will not pass your Personal Information to anyone outside CRAC and the Vitae Regional Hubs.
We may use your Personal Information to contact you (including by phone, fax, email and SMS) about new features, services, products and special offers. If you do not wish to receive this information you may choose not to do so by clicking where indicated on the registration page or by telephoning us. If you initially wish to receive such material but you change your mind later, you may tell us by editing your account with us, sending us an email to mailto: email@example.com or telephoning us.
If you register your details with us using our Web Site registration process, we will send you your registered account details (including your password) on completion of the registration process.
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account details, and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account (including where your account is used by another person), unless these activities arise due to our negligence or a breach of these terms by us.
Collection of this information is purely for statistical purposes within CRAC which allows us to further improve the user experience. This information will never be passed to a third party.
CRAC complies with the requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998 with regard to the collection, processing, storage and disclosure of personal information.
