1. The NextGen mentoring programme

1.1 NextGen’s involvement in the mentoring programme is limited to identifying the Mentor and Mentee and introducing the Mentor to the Mentee. NextGen will do this at its discretion and may decline to do so for any reason.

NextGen will have no other role in the operation of the programme, except it may decide, at its sole discretion, to seek feedback from the Mentors and Mentees. NextGen has not checked or verified the skills, experience, character, circumstances or other attributes of any Mentor or Mentee.

1.2 The expectation is that the mentoring programme will consist of meetings and/or phone calls and/or email or other communications between the Mentor and the Mentee from time to time, the content, frequency and duration of which will be as agreed between the Mentor and the Mentee. It will be the responsibility of the Mentor and the Mentee to manage the relationship as they consider appropriate.

1.3 The Mentor shall not at any time be obliged to provide or continue to provide any mentoring services to the Mentee, but if and to the extent that it does so, such services will be provided free of charge.

1.4 The Mentee shall not at any time be obliged to request or receive mentoring services from the Mentor.

2. Liability

2.2 The Mentee is advised to take independent financial, legal or other appropriate professional (if relevant) advice before acting on any information, suggestion, advice or guidance given by the Mentor.

2.3 The Mentee acknowledges that any services provided by NextGen and the Mentor are provided free of charge and in good faith.

2.4 NextGen is not liable to the Mentor, Mentee or to any third party for any loss, damage, costs or liabilities suffered as a result of this agreement, the existence of the relationships between the parties, the services provided or the act or omissions of the Mentor or Mentee. Nothing in this clause shall limit or exclude any liability for death or personal injury, or which results from fraud.

4.2 Neither the Mentee nor the Mentor may use or mention NextGen’s name, logo or any other intellectual property of NextGen in any of their publicity materials or in any announcement, without the prior written consent of NextGen.

4.3 The Mentee shall keep confidential all information, suggestions, advice or guidance provided by the Mentor as part of the services (unless waived by the Mentor).

4.4 The Mentee and Mentor will keep in strict confidence all and any information of a confidential nature which they obtain about either of the other parties as a result of the arrangements contemplated by this agreement.
