Online Licence Agreement
This Licence Agreement is between Early Childhood Australia (ECA) and the Individual or Institution who has subscribed to the ECA Publication(s) (hereafter referred to as the Subscriber).
- The ECA Publication(s) you are about to access are copyrighted by ECA (hereafter referred to as the Publisher). All rights reserved. In all countries, there are civil and/or criminal laws against copyright infringements. By downloading, copying, installing, accessing or otherwise using ECA Publication(s) you agree to be bound by the terms of this Licence Agreement.
- As the Subscriber, you are responsible for ensuring that the terms and conditions of this Licence Agreement are adhered to fully.
- If the Subscriber or Authorised User fails to abide by these Terms and Conditions or violates any other terms of this Agreement, the Publisher reserves the right in its sole discretion to suspend or terminate access to the Electronic Journals and/or Books immediately and without notice, in addition to any other available remedies.
Individual Subscribers are only permitted to store the ECA Publication(s) on the local drive of their own Personal Computer with access only for their personal use. No local area network, wide area network, intranet or internet storage and access is permitted without the prior written permission of ECA (see clause 4).
The Publisher hereby grants to the Institutional Subscriber (and their Authorised Users) the non-exclusive and non-transferable right and licence to access, retrieve, display and make copies from the online form of the ECA Publication(s), for which an Institutional Subscription has been paid, solely for their scholarly, research, educational and personal use in accordance with the terms of this Agreement at only one Site of that Institution. Institution Subscribers are responsible for storing the ECA Publication(s) on an internal network and its access has to be monitored to limit the access to the chosen number of simultaneous users.
Subscribing libraries which provide public access may provide access to and permit copying from the online form of the ECA Publication(s) by members of the public for their scholarly, research, educational and personal use by means of workstations located at the library facility.
Authorised Users include all current Institution employees (permanent and visiting faculty) and students/members of the Subscriber at a single Site.
A single Site is a contiguous campus community, including lodgings and residences of faculty, staff or students, or one contiguous commercial office complex, connected by a local area network whose terminals are physically linked together within the organisational premises.
