Liability Statement

NSW Archaeology Online (NSW AOL) is an archive of externally produced reports, and as such, the maintainers of the archive explicitly disclaim to the extent permitted by law any responsibility for the accuracy, content, or availability of information located through use of the archive, or for any damage incurred owing to use of the information contained therein.

By making use of material on this web server, including the contents of the archive, you accept these copyright and disclaimer provisions.

TERMS OF USE

Preamble

The NSW AOL levies no charge to use its collections when used according to the terms detailed below. However, by accepting the terms of the Common Access Agreement users are entering into a legally binding agreement. The Access Agreement covers a range of services, including both on-line and paper transactions. This preamble seeks to explain how it is implemented by the NSW AOL. NB: this preamble is an explanatory aid, not a legal instrument. Only the "Terms" below are legally binding.

It is the aim of the NSW AOL to provide integrated access to a variety of data sets at no cost to end users. This aim can only be achieved if the Authors and Organisations which supply data can be assured that their own rights are protected. Consequently, use of the catalogue is covered by a variety of legal instruments to protect us, our users, and those who supply data to us.

The Common Access Agreement asks that users be fair and reasonable in their use of the data supplied through the NSW AOL archive. NSW AOL levies no charges, there are no documents to sign, and none will be applied retrospectively. We do not hold information on specific users. In return we ask that you acknowledge the source and copyright of the data you use, and that you tell us of any errors you find in the archive metadata. The data must not be sold or supplied to a third party.

The data should only be used for teaching, learning, and research purposes. By teaching, we mean directed teaching undertaken with a designated tutor in a formal setting. By learning we mean self-directed study, whether or not attached to an educational institution, including the educational activities undertaken in museums, libraries and cognate institutions. By research we mean any work undertaken for the advancement of archaeological knowledge and/or the understanding of the historic environment. Such work may be commercially sponsored or it may be funded by academic bodies or learned societies, or it may be unsupported: but it is a condition of use that the results are placed in the public domain and are made freely available for others to use according to the normal principles of professional and academic practice. Anyone wishing to use the catalogue for any other purpose must contact NSW AOL to seek permission.

Archaeological data are the product of many years of scholarship by numerous archaeologists, collectors, analysts, antiquarians, field workers and laboratory scientists. It is not possible to credit all these scholars individually, or sometimes even identify them, but in making their data available for re-use, NSW AOL acknowledges their contribution. At all times, NSW AOL seeks to protect the intellectual property rights and copyright of the originators of data where that can reasonably be achieved.
