Terms and rules

The providers ("we", "us", "our", "OAA") of the service provided by this web site ("Service") are not responsible for any user-generated content and accounts. Content submitted expresses the views of the author only, and should never be construed as advice for others to follow without the exercise of one's own professional judgement. The OAA recommendation is always that Architects use their own professional judgement in their exercise of the practice of Architecture, for the highest level of performance and environmental consideration in the public interest—this comes right from our mandate under the Architects Act.

All content you submit, upload, or otherwise make available to the Service ("Content") may be reviewed by staff members. All Content you submit or upload may be sent to third-party verification services (including, but not limited to, spam prevention services). Do not submit any Content that you consider to be private or confidential.

We expect all users to use their Full First and Last names as the log in name just as it appears in your official communications with the OAA. Anonymous users will not be permitted on the site.

Solicitation of products or services is prohibited. Users soliciting products or services for sale shall be banned at the provider's discretion.

You agree to not use the Service to submit or link to any Content which is defamatory, abusive, hateful, threatening, spam or spam-like, likely to offend, contains adult or objectionable content, contains personal information of others, risks copyright infringement, encourages unlawful activity, or otherwise violates any laws. You are entirely responsible for the content of, and any harm resulting from, that Content or your conduct.

We may remove or modify any Content submitted at any time, with or without cause, with or without notice. Requests for Content to be removed or modified will be undertaken only at our discretion. We may terminate your access to all or any part of the Service at any time, with or without cause, with or without notice.

You are granting us with a non-exclusive, permanent, irrevocable, unlimited license to use, publish, or re-publish your Content in connection with the Service. You retain copyright over the Content.

These terms may be changed at any time without notice.

If you do not agree with these terms, please do not register or use the Service. Use of the Service constitutes acceptance of these terms. If you wish to close your account, please contact us.
