Online Community Terms of Use

Please take a moment to review our terms of use detailed in this section. The terms of use are a set of rules you agree to adhere to as a member of the online community. By creating an account with the online community, you are agreeing to our terms of use.

The Open Polytechnic is not responsible for any messages posted by members or visitors to the community. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message.

The messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of the online community. Any member who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to use the ‘Report’ button underneath the post and our moderator will review the message to ensure it meets our terms of use. 

Where we think abuse of our terms of use has occurred, the moderator will remove the message as soon as is practical. The Open Polytechnic reserves the right to ban any user that consistently breaks our terms of use for the community.

By creating an account for the online community you are agreeing to our terms of use. This means that you are agreeing to play nice and not post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing to members of the community or Open Polytechnic staff, is obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise violates any laws.

You also agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or by the online community.

The Open Polytechnic does not permit any advertisements for non-Open Polytechnic related items, products or services on this online community. The Open Polytechnic does not accept any liability for sales of second-hand text books on this online community. If you do seek to buy or sell a textbook on the online community site you do so at your own risk.

The Open Polytechnic reserves the right to amend these terms of use at any time.
