The Titahi Bay Community Trust's website is published and maintained by the Trustees of the Titahi Bay Community Trust (a registered Charity) on behalf of the residents, friends and other interested parties of Titahi Bay.  All articles submitted for inclusion are checked by the Trustees for accuracy and appropriateness.  

No responsibility is taken by the Trustees for the accuracy of any material on any pages within the Business Directory, or posted by individuals or groups within the Community section. We do our best to check facts, but if there's something wrong, please tell us via the Contact Us page.

The Community and Business pages of the website are monitored closely and any users who submit offensive or inappropriate content will have their registrations withdrawn (see next section).

The Trustees cannot be held responsible for any plagiarism, infringement of copyright, title, slogan, trademark, trade name, service mark, or intellectual property rights, resulting from material included in the website, nor for any unauthorised use of material in the website.

All material is checked for obscene language, defamation or libel, disparagement of product, and invasion of privacy.  If the possibility exists for any material to present such legal problems, the Trustees reserve the right to check independently and to contact the contributor for clarification or explanation, or to reject the material outright.

The Trustees reserve the right to amend contributions for grammar and spelling to maintain the standards of the website.
