To register you must be a minimum of 16 years of age.

The only required information is: your name, country and email address.

Some personal details (marked distinctively) and your email address will not be accessible by or made available to any other member. It is strictly for internal use so that we may easily communicate with you.

Our database works on a simple principal: the more information you provide about yourself, the more you will be able to see about other members.

Once you completed the registration form you must choose a username and you will be given a password. Your username is the same for log-in and what you will be known as in the forum. We'll then email you to confirm your username and allocate a password. If you want to change your password, you can do so in your profile in the forum or when you log in.

You can change and update your details for changing circumstances any time after you log-in by clicking the register button.

If you wish to unsubscribe please email us. We will terminate your username and password and they will become invalid immediately. We will also remove your details from our database.

    If, for any reason, we believe that you have not complied with any of these Terms and Conditions, we may, at our discretion, cancel your access to Chemtogether immediately and without giving you any advance notice, and if applicable, any refund of your Membership fee.

    We reserve the right to suspend or terminate any Memberís access to Chemtogether, and/or to edit, or require the Member to edit, material posted on Chemtogether if the relevant Member or material appears to us to be in breach of any provision of this Agreement.
