Terms and conditions of website use
When you visit and use aspects of an OSCA Website, our systems may record certain information about your navigation and use of those web sites (such as which web pages you visit and the time and date of your visit and use). We use this information to help analyse and improve the performance of the OSCA Websites.
From time to time OSCA may engage third parties to help analyse how the OSCA Websites are used and determine the optimal design and functionality for the sites to enhance OSCA’s and users’ experience on the OSCA Websites. While any such analysis would be performed using data collected from the OSCA Websites, it is OSCA’s intent that this information will not include any personal information.
OSCA may also collect Internet Protocol (IP) addresses relating to you when you access and use the OSCA Websites. IP addresses are assigned to computers on the internet to uniquely identify them within the global network of computers which makes up the internet. OSCA may collect and manage IP addresses for internet session management and security purposes.
Passwords and usernames
In some circumstances, OSCA may issue you with usernames or passwords to allow you to access some of the content and information on certain OSCA Websites.
While OSCA will use all reasonable efforts to ensure that usernames and passwords are not disclosed to other people, you are ultimately responsible for maintaining the security and secrecy of your usernames and passwords.
OSCAconnect and other directories
You acknowledge and agree that the use of OSCAconnect and any resources provided by that service, such as a register of members of OSCA and/or business directory (collectively, the ‘Directories’) will be subject to the following:
Reliance on information
While OSCA will use reasonable endeavours to provide accurate information on the website, it does not warrant that the information is accurate, current or complete, especially as certain information published on the site is provided by Scotch College, OSCA members in a personal capacity, or OSCA affiliated clubs and associations, and not OSCA itself.
OSCA makes no warranties that the information published or materials hosted on the OSCA Websites are free of infection by computer viruses or other contamination.
All copyright in the OSCA Websites (including in in OSCAconnect and the Directories) is owned or licensed by OSCA, except for your personal information and any other information or content provided by you. If you choose to broadcast material on OSCAconnect, in doing so you warrant that broadcasting such material on OSCAconnect does not breach any third-party intellectual property rights, and you provide a non-revocable, royalty-free licence for OSCA to continue to the broadcast of that material on any of the OSCA Websites.
Third party websites
The OSCA Websites may contain links to third party websites. OSCA is not responsible for the condition or the content of those third-party websites, as they are not under OSCA’s control.
Any links provided are solely for your convenience. The presence of links does not amount, expressly or impliedly, to any endorsement of the websites or the products or services provided there.
Your access to those websites and use of their products and services is solely at your own risk.
Terms and Conditions of attending OSCA Events
OSCA may, from time to time, facilitate the online booking of tickets to OSCA-related events through third party sites (such as ‘Trybooking’). In doing so, a selection to make a booking may link you to a third-party website. If you provide personal information or make a purchase via such a third-party website, you do so in accordance with the terms and conditions of that third-party provider.
Further, the following terms and conditions apply to OSCA members, guests, and other participants and attendees at OSCA events (such as dinners, training, workshops, professional development, and conferences).
Where an OSCA event is held at a third-party venue, additional entry terms and conditions may apply, as determined by the ticket provider or venue.
To the maximum extent permissible by law, OSCA:
OSCA excludes all liability and responsibility imposed on it (and any of its directors, committee members, officers, employees, appointed representatives, related companies, affiliates or agents) for any loss or damage that may be incurred by you or any other person, including without limitation any direct, indirect, punitive, consequential or special loss or damage, and whether in tort (including, but not limited to, negligence), contract or otherwise, in connection with use of the OSCA website and the material contained on this website, OSCAconnect or the Directories, or any website linked to this website.
In using the OSCA website, you acknowledge that any damage caused to you or any third party as a result of a breach by OSCA of these terms and conditions, if not legally permitted to be excluded, shall be limited to the amount recoverable under applicable legislation and otherwise not be recoverable from OSCA or any of its related bodies.
OSCA reserves the right to vary these terms and conditions from time to time, such as to take account of changes to its policies or to relevant laws. Such variations will take effect immediately upon the posting of the varied terms and conditions on the OSCA website. In continuing to use this website and associated services you will be deemed to accept such variations.
If any provision of these terms and conditions is held to be unlawful, invalid or unenforceable, that provision shall be deemed severed and where capable the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions of these terms and conditions shall not be affected.
These terms and conditions will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Victoria, and any disputes relating to these Terms will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of Victorian courts.
