Copyright

The contents of the Websites, including text, publications, newsletters, minutes of meetings, meeting agendas, research findings, views, graphics, images, HTML code, Java code, as well as the design, selection and arrangement of information on the Websites, belong to Engineers Canada and are protected by copyright and other intellectual property laws. Unauthorized use of these materials may violate copyright, trade-mark, patent and other laws.

You agree to view and download materials from the Websites only for your personal, non-commercial use. The contents of the Websites may not be reproduced, displayed, distributed, or used in any other manner for a public or commercial purpose, except by Engineers Canada. You may not reproduce, other than for personal use, or modify, redistribute or use material from the Websites in any form or by any means, unless you obtain the express written consent of Engineers Canada.

Limitation of Warranties and Disclaimer

The materials, publications, text, images and graphics contained on the Websites are intended for educational or informational purposes only. Although Engineers Canada strives to ensure their accuracy, you should not act or rely on any information contained in the Websites without seeking the advice of Engineers Canada or one of its twelve (12) member licensing bodies.

The materials provided on the Websites are provided without any warranties or conditions of any kind, including warranties of accuracy or completeness, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement of intellectual property. Information contained on the Websites may contain typographical errors, and Engineers Canada may make changes to the materials on the Websites, at any time, without notice. Further, Engineers Canada does not guarantee or warrant uninterrupted access to the Websites or of any site linked to its Websites, or the availability and functionality of any internet email links provided on its Websites. If you use the Websites, you assume the entire risk as to the accuracy and the use of the Websites, and the information to which they are linked.

In no event shall Engineers Canada, its officers, affiliates, agents, employees or internet service providers be liable to you or any third party for any direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages whatsoever (including, without limitation, those resulting from lost profits or lost data) arising out of the use, inability to use, or the results of use of the Websites, any websites linked to the Websites, or the materials or information contained at any or all such sites, whether based on warranty, contract, tort or any other legal theory of liability. The foregoing limitation shall apply even if Engineers Canada has been advised or should have known of the possibility of such damage.  

Confidentiality

Absent the use of encryption, the internet is not a secured medium and privacy cannot be ensured. Internet e-mail is vulnerable to interception and forging. Engineers Canada will not be responsible for any damages you or any third party may suffer as a result of the transmission of confidential information that you make to any third party through the Internet e-mail links provided on the Websites. Engineers Canada is not responsible for any errors or any changes made to any transmitted information. Should you decide to transmit information using internet e-mail links, you do so at your own risk.

Links to Other Websites

The Websites may be linked to other sites that are not under the control of and are not maintained by Engineers Canada. Any opinion, advice, article, publication, statement, service, offer, or other information contained in any site that is linked to the Websites in any way are the property of their authors or distributors, and not Engineers Canada. Engineers Canada assumes no responsibility for the quality, reliability or accuracy of these materials. Unless specifically stated, the inclusion of a link to other sites does not imply endorsement of those sites by Engineers Canada, or of any product or service that is available through those sites or links.

Applicable Laws

The Websites are administered by Engineers Canada from its offices in Ottawa, Ontario. The Websites can be accessed from all provinces and territories of Canada, as well as from other countries around the world.  As each of these jurisdictions has laws that may differ from those of the Province of Ontario, all matters relating to access to, or use of, the Websites or any website linked to the Websites, shall be governed by the laws of the Province of Ontario and the laws of Canada applicable therein.

General

These Terms represent the entire understanding relating to the use of the Websites and prevail over any prior or contemporaneous, conflicting or additional, communications. If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable to any extent, then the remainder of the Terms will have full force and effect. Engineers Canada may revise the Terms at any time by updating this posting. You should visit this page from time to time to review the current Terms because they are binding on you. Certain provisions of these Terms may be superseded by expressly designated legal notices or terms located on particular pages at this Websites.

Official Languages Policy

Engineers Canada strives to provide all information contained in the Websites in both of Canada's official languages. In some instances, however, various publications and documents may only be available in English or in French. In Engineers Canada's French-language websites, the masculine form is used for the sake of brevity.
