Please read these Terms of Service (“Terms”, “Terms of Service”) carefully before using the http://www.humanitarianlogistics.org website operated by the Humanitarian Logistics Association (“us”, “we”, or “our”).

Your access to and use of the Service is conditioned on your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. These Terms apply to all visitors, users and others who access or use the Service.

By accessing or using the Service you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you disagree with any part of the terms then you may not access the Service.

Privacy/data protection

In signing up as a Member, you agree to be opted in to receive HLA email communications and you understand that HLA will send you content based on the options you have selected. You confirmed, at sign-up, that you read and understood this privacy policy. HLA will keep your personal details secure and will not pass them on to other organisations for marketing purposes. You can withdraw your consent to be emailed at any time by contacting us at membership@humanitarianlogistics.org.


We may terminate or suspend access to our Service immediately, without prior notice or liability, for any reason whatsoever, including without limitation if you breach the Terms.

All provisions of the Terms which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.


Some parts of the Service are billed on a subscription basis (“Subscription(s)”). You will be emailed in advance on a recurring 12 month basis, with a request to renew your membership. However, payment will not be automatically taken.

Our Service may contain links to third-party web sites or services that are not owned or controlled by the Humanitarian Logistics Association.

The Humanitarian Logistics Association has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third party web sites or services. You further acknowledge and agree that the Humanitarian Logistics Association shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any such content, goods or services available on or through any such web sites or services.


We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms at any time. If a revision is material we will try to provide at least 30 days’ notice prior to any new terms taking effect. What constitutes a material change will be determined at our sole discretion.

Use of HLA logo

Registered members of HLA (whether Associate – free, Full – paid or Corporate) will be entitled to use an HLA logo in their email and correspondence. This use must comply with HLA’s values and mission, as follows:

The mission of HLA is to build a community of practice for advancing the humanitarian logistics profession, by promoting cross-organizational learning and collaboration.  This community of practice is how we impact our beneficiaries.

HLA is driven by humanitarian values.  We affirm the primacy of the humanitarian imperative: that action should be taken to prevent or alleviate human suffering arising out of disaster or conflict, and that nothing should override this principle.

Various codes of conduct exist for the sector.  One widely used code of conduct is that used by the International Committee of the Red Cross and Red Crescent. We expect our values to guide our staff when explicit procedures have not been written.
