Terms of Service


The Terms of Service are produced in accordance with the Data Protection Law requirements (as defined below)

In order to use Cheribim to help with the management of your organisation and property, you must first agree to these Terms of Service on behalf of your organisation. By signing up your organisation to use Cheribim, you agree to be bound by these Terms of Service and acknowledge that any violation of the terms outlined below may result in the termination of your Organisation’s account.

Cheribim Ltd is a company registered in England and Wales with registered number 14029807. Cheribim is a web-based property and relationship management system and database tool, developed by Cheribim Ltd, and is provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis so far as the law allows – see more detail [below].

Although the language in these Terms of Service is simple, the intentions are serious, forming a contract considered to be a legal document under English Law and under the jurisdiction of English courts.

Definitions we use in this document

"Data Protection Law" means all data protection laws and regulations applicable to the UK including (i) the UK Data Protection Act 2018; (ii) UK General Data Protection Regulation ("UK GDPR"); (iii) the Privacy & Electronic Communications Regulations 2003 ("the PECR") relating to electronic communications; (iv) In the event that the EU GDPR (as defined in the Data Protection Act 2018) applies to activities, we will comply with the EU GDPR; and applicable national implementations of (iii) and (iv)

"The Service" means our Cheribim software, which is accessed online through a web browser. Access is provided through an email address/PIN.

"your Organisation" means your church, charity or other type of organisation that has opened a Cheribim account. In the relationship between us, your Organisation should be considered the Data Controller as defined within the context of Data Protection Law as to the users nominated by you in accordance with these Terms of Service.

"us", "we" and "our" refer to Cheribim Ltd. In the relationship between us, Cheribim Ltd should be considered the Data Processor as defined within the context of General Data Protection Regulation Data Protection Law as to the Personal Data concerning your users, account contact and data that they upload. We are a Data Controller as to Personal Data that we collect about you for our relationship and our privacy policy on our website from time to time applies.

"user" means your account contact, all end-users of the Service or website that you have enabled to have access whether staff, workers, agents, volunteers, members, tenants or contractors to the extent permitted by these Terms of Service to access and use The Service and /or our website.

"working day" means a day that is not a Saturday or Sunday, Christmas Day, Good Friday or any day that is a statutory bank holiday in England.

"you" means the Organisation that is the contracted subscriber of The Service.

Access to an account

In order to apply to use The Service, you must first submit your account contact details direct to us or through making a profile using The Service. We may create an account for you to access The Service, however we reserve the right, at our discretion, not to accept your application.

Should we accept your application to access The Service, we will confirm this by email to the account contact email address you provide in your application, at which point a legally binding contract will be created between us and you; you must therefore ensure that any signatory/enquirer is authorised to enter into this contract for and on behalf of you. These Terms of Service shall govern our agreement with you.

If at any time you need to update the Organisation account contact details you provided to us when applying to access The Service, you should do so by contacting us directly. You are required to maintain an up to date designated, named account contact. A change of account contact details does not change the contractual relationship between us and you.

By accepting your application to access The Service, we grant you a non-exclusive, non-transferrable, automatically renewing monthly license to use The Service for you and permitted users. This license is in accordance with these Terms of Service and our Acceptable Use Policy.

Your obligations to us (our rights)

You must only access The Service using an email address that your Organisation authorises.

You must not do anything which could reasonably be expected to damage, disable, overburden, or materially impair The Service or our website, or which is likely to interfere with any third party’s use or enjoyment of The Service.

You must accept that all software available through The Service or used to create and operate The Service is property of us or our licensors. You will not question or dispute our ownership of the intellectual property of The Service.

Each account held with The Service must only be used for the purpose of a single Organisation. You may, however, hold multiple accounts (one for each charity/project/subsidiary or division you need to administer).

You recognise that The Service stores and processes special category data on your behalf.

You accept that nothing in these Terms of Service, nor by using The Service, relieves you (the Data Controller) of your own direct responsibilities and liabilities under GDPR Data Protection Law. At all times you are responsible for the acts and omissions of your users and anyone using login details generated for your users that have been shared without our permission and you must ensure that they all comply with these Terms of Service and our Acceptable Use Policy.

Our obligations to you (your rights)

As Data Processor, we commit to only use the data you entrust to us for its intended purpose. We will never:

  • Pass your data on to third parties, except where instructed to do so by you or where such is required to comply with the law

  • Sell your or your users’ data to third parties

  • Use your or your users’ data for our own purposes, except where anonymised and for research and development purposes to improve The Service and related products, and to monitor the health and security of your Organisation’s account

We will ensure all our employees who are responsible for processing your data are subject to a duty of confidence.

At all times, we will protect your data by:

  • Restricting our access to your data and ensuring that only trusted staff can access your data

  • Taking suitable technical and organisational steps to ensure the technical security of your data and taking appropriate measures to ensure the security of processing such to include those detailed on our website

If Personal Data relating to an EU or UK Data Subject is transferred by or for us outside of the UK and/or European Economic Area to a country that has not been deemed to have adequate protection for Personal Data by the UK ICO then we shall ensure that we enter into an appropriate data transfer agreement containing provisions based on the EEA Standard Contractual Clauses (or UK Standard Contractual Clauses when adopted by the UK ICO) with our Data Processors and Sub-Processors and otherwise that they agree that it shall be processed in compliance with applicable Data Protection Laws. Note that The Service includes a number of optional integrations with third party services that you may already be using or wish to use in the future. If you decide to integrate any of the optional services that we support (e.g., card payment and direct debit handling, SMS messaging, email subscriber marketing service), then those providers will be responsible for data compliance, not us, and so you should check the terms of service on which you contract with them to cover off risk, suitability for your needs and compliance with data protection law.

We will ensure the technical and organisational measures detailed on our website from time to time shall be at all times adhered to as a minimum security standard save as otherwise authorised by applicable law.

We will comply with all obligations imposed directly on us by the Data Protection Laws.

We will support you with answering Subject Access Requests and in enabling data subjects to exercise their rights under applicable Data Protection Law where you do not already have access to the relevant data. Where you wish us to provide input for proceedings or regulatory investigations then you agree to pay our reasonable costs and expenses where we are not at fault.

We will only engage a Sub-Processor where instructed to do so by you, with your prior consent and written contract with that Sub-Processor, except where that Sub-Processor is a pre-existing requirement for The Service, (for example, your data is hosted on our Sub-Processor’s servers). Please see our list of third-party processors, and note that this may be subject to change at any time.

Through the functionality we provide within The Service and other information we may make available to you we are assisting you in meeting your GDPR obligations under applicable Data Protection Laws in relation to the security of processing and data protection impact assessments.

In the event that we discover or become aware of a data breach or have reasonable grounds to suspect any illegal or unauthorised activity, we will inform you without undue delay, so far as allowed by law; and provide reasonable assistance to facilitate your meeting your obligations to inform the data subjects.

We will co-operate with the ICO or any other Data Protection Authority as required by law.

We will delete all of the data we hold on your data subjects on termination of contract.

We will cooperate with reasonable audits and, to the extent that you cannot carry these out remotely through your existing access, reasonable inspections on a confidential basis where relevant and/or deemed necessary, but respecting our and third party’s data, the security of our operation and commercially sensitive information.

We shall ensure that all of our employees, agents, officers and contractors involved in the handling of Personal Data: (i) are aware of the confidential nature of the Personal Data and are contractually bound to keep the Personal Data confidential; (ii) have received appropriate training on their responsibilities as a data processor; and (iii) accept that they are bound by equivalent terms to these.

Paying for The Service

Full details of the subscription fees for the use of The Service will be provided prior to forming a contract. We reserve the right to vary these fees, at which time we will provide not less than one month notice.

Where customers are offered a free trial of The Service there will be no charge for the use of The Service during the free trial period. We may, at our discretion, extend any free trial period, or grant a further trial period for a valid reason. Your Organisation (and any related or associated organisation) is not entitled to benefit from more than one “free trial period”, and if we discover that your Organisation and its related or associated organisation has requested an additional “free trial period”, they will become liable for payment of all fees and charges for use of The Service from the start of the first additional “free trial period”.

Your subscription to The Service will renew automatically each month on your “billing day” – which is set as the day of the month when you first subscribe - and your Organisation will be billed in advance on a monthly basis. There will be no refunds for unused services or account downgrades.

Your Organisation’s subscription fee for using The Service is directly linked to (i) the total number of buildings/property entries associated with your account, (ii) the number of user profiles associated with your account, and (iii) each full or partial gigabyte of file storage in excess of the two-gigabyte free storage allowance on your Organisation’s account (full details of how your invoice has been calculated will be included in each invoice breakdown). As such, the fee for using The Service may vary during the period of use. You will be billed automatically and will be fully liable for any charges calculated on your billing day.

Payment for The Service will be by Direct Debit, credit or debit card, or bank transfer. An invoice will be sent to the email address provided by the account holder and you will be responsible for the timely payment of this. Where by Direct Debit, payments will be taken for The Service on your designated monthly billing date using the direct debit or card payment handler that we have authorised for your Organisation’s account. We are unable to accept payment for The Service by any other method.

We shall be under no obligation to provide The Service to you and your Organisation if payment of the subscription fee is not made within a timely manner. If subscription fees become overdue, we reserve the right to suspend access to The Service until the outstanding balance is paid. In the event that payment is not made in accordance with any mutually agreed period of grace we will serve a 7-day notice of intention to suspend access to The Service; during this period your access to the Service and your data will be in no way restricted. Following this period, in the event that payment has not been made, we may suspend access to your Organisation’s account whereupon access to the data within the account will be restricted and we will serve a 7-day notice of intention to terminate the account. Following this period, in the event that payment has not been made, we may close your Organisation’s account with The Service permanently and all data relating to the account removed.

Cancelling your subscription

If you wish to cancel your subscription to The Service, you must contact Cheribim Support by email at least 5 clear working days before your next billing day; your next billing day will be as described on your invoice or may be requested from us. We will require verification of the cancellation by your pre-designated account contact, or by another known contact within your Organisation.

In the event of a serious breach of the Terms of Service by Cheribim you shall be entitled to forthwith terminate the Service .

If you or your users fail to abide by these Terms of Service, we reserve the right to suspend access to The Service or permanently cancel the Cheribim account. If we withdraw access to The Service due to a breach of these Terms of Service, no refund will be payable by us.

A copy of your user data can be requested at any time. If this contract/The service are terminated by either you or us then, subject to any legal obligations to the contrary or our need to handle the defence of any claim and other legal enquiries or the requirements of our insurers, our policy is to delete the data within thirty days after termination takes effect.

Privacy, data ownership and security

By using The Service, you are accepting these Terms of Service (our written contract), our Acceptable Use Policy and our description of the way we collect and use data within The Service as described in the Cheribim Privacy Policy.

General terms

It is your responsibility to keep your Organisation’s account contact information up to date at all times.

You are responsible for ensuring your Organisation’s and users’ login information is kept secure at all times. We will not be responsible for any loss or damage incurred as a consequence of login details being compromised, save where such loss or damage occurs by reason of a breach by Cheribim, in which case you must notify us without delay.

We do not guarantee that The Service will meet all your requirements, be available 100% of the time or be “bug free”. While we will exercise our reasonably-commercial endeavours to keep disruptions to a minimum, from time to time it may be necessary to suspend The Service to carry out maintenance or support work, or there may be outage that is caused by a reason out of our control.

The Service has been created and tested in accordance with industry best practices and on that basis, to the best of our knowledge, The Service is free from material defect against the agreed specification. If you discover a defect or fault with The Service (and such defect or fault does not result from you, your users or anyone through you having amended or misused The Service, our Terms of Service or Acceptable Use Policy), you shall provide us with all the information that may be necessary to assist us in resolving the defect without delay, including sufficient information to enable us to reproduce the defect and shall then endeavour to do so within 48 hours of discovering the defect or fault.

We reserve the right to remove any information from The Service that we consider to be unlawful, offensive or that violates the intellectual property of a third party.

You and your Organisation may not use The Service to send unsolicited communication of any kind, including but not limited to emails and SMS.

We reserve the right to make changes to these Terms of Service at any time.

Limitation of liability

You use The Service entirely at your own risk.

Where we are not legally entitled to exclude our liability, our total liability for any loss or damage relating to The Service shall not exceed an amount equal to the subscription fees which your Organisation has paid to us in the previous calendar year

Except in respect of death or personal injury caused by our negligence and subject to clauses 2 to 3 below, our entire liability to you, your users and others that have shared logins, whether arising in contract, tort (including without limitation negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, arising under or in connection with this contract and these Terms of Service (whether in respect of the provision of the Service, damages, breach, indemnity or otherwise) shall not in any circumstance exceed 100% of the amount of the total annual subscriptions paid by you to us for the provision of The Service for the previous year under this contract or annualised if less than a year has passed.

We shall have no liability to you or any third party for any loss, damage, costs, expenses, or other claims for compensation arising from any material or instructions supplied by you or your users (or those that have shared logins) which are unauthorised, illegal, incomplete, incorrect, inaccurate, illegible, out of sequence or in the wrong form or due to any other fault of yours or those persons.

Except in respect of death or personal injury caused by our negligence, we shall not be liable to you or your users by reason of any representation (unless fraudulent), or any term or any duty for any loss of anticipated savings, donation or business revenues, or profits (whether categorised as direct or indirect) or any indirect, special or consequential loss, loss of goodwill or reputation, and all other such loss (whether or not arising in the normal course of activities), or other economic loss or other claims however caused under the contract or the provision of The Service.

You agree and acknowledge that the allocation of risk in this clause is fair and reasonable in the circumstances having been taken into account by us in setting the level of charges and agreeing the extent of Service. You accept that if you have risk not covered by us then you have had ample opportunity to secure your own insurance for such risks before and during any arrangement with us.

For the avoidance of doubt, we:

  • make no express warranties and specifically disclaim any implied warranties, including any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, with respect to the performance of Service under our contract and these Terms of Service to the extent permissible by law.

  • do not guarantee, and nothing contained in our contract, these Terms of Service, shall be construed as a guarantee, that the use of the Service by you or your users will achieve any projected level of results.

We shall not be liable for any default (or deemed to be in breach of contract) by reason of any delay due to any circumstance beyond our reasonable control.

You declare and acknowledge that we have no control, involvement, role, or responsibility as to the type or use of data input by you, your users or others with their logins and we merely provide software as a service and an IT repository for data with a specified conduit for its movement to and from you and your users or third-party infrastructure. Our processing does not include the manipulation, selection, ordering, searching, or monitoring of such Personal Data other than in a generic sense of storage in the scope of the Service or in the running of the software. You are solely responsible for the cleansing, updating, timely deletion and maintenance of Personal Data by your access, other than our deletion as stated otherwise in these Terms of Service.

You will ensure that you comply with all Data Protection Laws and have all necessary appropriate consents and notices in place to enable lawful transmission of the Personal Data for the Service and its processing in accordance with this contract for the duration and purposes of this contract.

This clause shall survive termination of the contract.

LAST UPDATED: May 1, 2022

Any further updates to this privacy policy will be made to this document and circulated to you.


Cheribim Ltd. is committed to the protection of the privacy of all our customers. Your privacy is really important to us and we understand how important it is to you. Our aim is to be as clear and open as possible about what we do with your personal data and why we do it.

Definitions we use in this privacy notice

"The Service" means our Cheribim software, which is accessed online through a web browser by using our web app.

"you", "your Organisation" means your church, charity or other type of organisation that may have opened a Cheribim account. In the relationship between us as you use The Service, our website, and our customer support services, your Organisation is considered the Data Subject (our Customer) as defined within the context of Data Protection Law.

In the relationship between us as you use The Service, our website, and our customer support services, Cheribim Ltd should be considered the Data Controller (the Service Provider) as defined within the context of General Data Protection Regulation Data Protection Law. This means we decide how your personal data is processed and for what purposes (explained below).

How do we use your information?

When using our website, the personal information we collect might include your IP address, what pages you may have visited on our website and when you accessed them (as part of our log files). This information, in conjunction with our use of cookies to record information about your online preferences, helps us to tailor the website to your interests. (Full details on our use of cookies can be found in our Cookie Policy).

When you first sign up for The Service, you are required to provide basic contact information (about your Organisation, and about yourself as the organisation’s ‘account contact’) to enable us to create your account to access The Service. The contact details you provide are used solely to communicate with you and for as long as you wish to continue to access The Service those account contact details are retained.

You are able to update the account, billing and data protection contact details for your Organisation at any time by contacting us directly; for example, if the account contact person changes within your Organisation or if you wish to change the log in email address associated with your profile.

We comply with our obligations under UK Data Protection Law by keeping personal data up to date; by storing and destroying it securely; by not collecting or retaining excessive amounts of data; by protecting personal data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access and disclosure and by ensuring that appropriate technical measures are in place to protect personal data.

In the interests of transparency and to be as clear as possible, we’ve set out the specific information we may collect about you when you sign up for a Cheribim account, how we keep your information confidential and secure, and how you can access your information if you need to at the end of this privacy policy.

What is our lawful basis for using your information?

There are various scenarios within which we may use your information, and for each we have identified the lawful bases for processing, as described below:

Contract applies:

If you/your Organisation has subscribed to use The Service (see our related Terms of Service), processing is necessary to perform and manage the contract.

Legitimate interest applies:

We will opt you out of all communication and not contact you after the contract has ended; unless you contact us or have requested we contact you at a later date. However, we will retain your basic contract contact details for internal statistical and reporting purposes.

Where you sign-up for a training event and we communicate with you about that event, both before the event, and in follow up after the event.

Where you have engaged with us at an exhibition or marketing event, or you have approached us independently for information about The Service. We will only use your contact details to respond to your enquiry.

Where we need to communicate with you about: -

Where you have explicitly consented for us to publish a “Review” that you or your Organisation has written about The Service for our website. Your name, Organisation name and website may be included in the review, along with any profile image you have supplied us.

We have internal processes to periodically review the data we hold and delete data that is no longer relevant to our purposes for processing.

Your rights and your information

Unless subject to an exemption under UK Data Protection Law, you have the following rights with respect to your personal data: -

Access to your information: You have the right to request a copy of the personal information that we hold about you.

  • our use of your personal information is contrary to law or our other legal obligations.

Objecting to how we may use your information: Where we use your personal information to perform tasks carried out in the public interest then, if you ask us to, we will stop using that personal information unless there are overriding legitimate grounds to continue.

Restricting how we may use your information: In some cases, you may ask us to restrict how we use your personal information. This right might apply, for example, where we are checking the accuracy of personal information about you that we hold or assessing the validity of any objection you have made to our use of your information. The right might also apply where there is no longer a basis for using your personal information but you do not want us to delete the data. Where this right is validly exercised, we may only use the relevant personal information with your consent, for legal claims or where there are other public interest grounds to do so.

Withdrawing consent using your information: Where we use your personal information with your consent you may withdraw that consent at any time and we will stop using your personal information for the purpose(s) for which consent was given. Please contact us in any of the ways set out in the ‘Contact information and further advice’ section if you wish to exercise any of these rights.

We produce internal reporting about the different types of organisations in our customer base (e.g. church, independent charity, other; and for churches, if applicable, your denomination).

Organisation ‘known by’ names

Where your Organisation is known by more than one name, or by an abbreviation of your Organisation name, we’ll note these to help us better match email support enquiries to the correct customer account, and to make it easier for your data subject members to find their church/charity when they log in to their member-facing side of The Service.

Charity information

Where applicable, we use your charity number to obtain basic information about your charity for internal reporting purposes.

Other information we maintain about your organisation

Billing information

We maintain a financial history with audit trail of invoices raised and payments made for The Service, including payment method, and correspondence relating to due, overdue and unpaid accounts.

Statistics about your account

We maintain a record and statistical information about your usage of the The Service. This is used to calculate your monthly billing and internal statistical reporting.

Third-party integrations

We maintain a record of the third party integrations that you’ve completed for your account.

If you sign up for a training event

When you sign-up for a training event, your sign-up details are used solely to communicate with you about the event, both before and in follow up to the event. Sign-up details are retained for financial accounting and audit purposes. We do not use your event sign-up details for any other marketing purpose.
