Who we are and how to contact us
This website is operated by Oxford Instruments plc and its subsidiaries (“Oxford Instruments”, “we”, “us”).
Section headings in these Terms are provided for reference purposes only and in no way define, limit, construe or describe the scope or extent of any section.
We amend these Terms from time to time by updating this page. Every time you wish to use our website, please check these Terms to ensure you understand the Terms that apply at that time.

You also agree:
We may from time to time provide interactive services on our website (“Interactive Services”).
Where we do provide any Interactive Service, we will provide clear information to you about the kind of service offered, if it is moderated and what form of moderation is used (including whether it is human or technical).
We will do our best to assess any possible risks for users from third parties when they use any Interactive Service provided on our website, and we will decide in each case whether it is appropriate to use moderation of the relevant service (including what kind of moderation to use) in the light of those risks. However, we are under no obligation to oversee, monitor or moderate any Interactive Service we provide on our website, and we expressly exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any Interactive Service by a user in contravention of our content standards, whether the service is moderated or not.
The use of any of our Interactive Services by a minor is subject to the consent of their parent or guardian. We advise parents who permit their children to use an Interactive Service that it is important that they communicate with their children about their safety online, as moderation is not foolproof. Minors who are using any Interactive Service should be made aware of the potential risks to them.
Where we do moderate an Interactive Service, we will normally provide you with a means of contacting the moderator, should a concern or difficulty arise.
These content standards apply to any and all material which you contribute to our website (“Contribution”), and to any Interactive Services associated with it.
These content standards must be complied with. The standards apply to each part of any Contribution as well as to its whole.
We shall determine, in our discretion, whether a Contribution breaches our content standards.

Breach of these Terms
When we consider that a breach of these Terms has occurred, we may take such action as we deem appropriate.
We exclude our liability for all action we may take in response to breaches of these Terms. The actions we may take are not limited to those described above, and we may take any other action we reasonably deem appropriate.
These Terms are governed by the laws of England and Wales. By using this website, you agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales in the event of any dispute.
If any provision of this Terms is found by any court or administrative body of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, that invalidity or unenforceability will not affect the other provisions of these Terms which will remain in full force and effect.
