7. Campaign Objectives: The campaigns are a service provided by Iron Out for advocates. The initiative will run different campaigns that will focus on ironmongery safety-related issues. Campaign objectives may develop and change over time, and whilst Iron Out maintains autonomy in decisions made, input from advocates welcomed.

They shall take ownership of their actions, promptly rectify mistakes or errors, and hold themselves and others accountable to the principles and standards outlined in this code of conduct and terms and conditions.

10. Reporting Violations: Any advocate who becomes aware of a violation of this agreement, whether by themselves or another participant is obligated to report it promptly to Iron Out for investigation and resolution.

By signing up as an advocate, businesses agree to abide by these terms and conditions as part of receiving the service, and understand the implications of advocacy participation as outlined above, including the terms of logo usage, indemnification of ideas shared through campaigns, and reporting violations.
