HOW OAPSB WORKS
Ontario Association of Police Services Boards is an engagement platform for smartphones with a web portal for use by moderators to control content. Users are within hubs or workspaces controlled by moderators. For example, moderators may distribute to users within their hub content such as news, notifications, and other relevant resources in text, audio, and video. Moderators may create activities and events. The Service allows chats and other communication amongst users in a hub. The Service may add new features over time.
Payment models for the Service may vary and change from time to time, and may include free and paid versions. Payment may be based on various factors such as numbers of users in a hub, the features provided, and whether the moderator is using for community or commercial purposes.
Users and moderators should not consider the Service as primary storage for content they add to the Service. Users and moderators should store important content elsewhere and use the Service to distribute it and communicate. Provider will retain content within a hub for only a limited time after a hub is in use.
Users and moderators are responsible for all activity they conduct while using the Service. You will not use the Services for purposes proscribed by Provider from time to time, including without limitation: illegal or inappropriate purposes; sending spam; perpetration of security breaches; hacking; privacy breaches; fraudulent activity; distribution of viruses or other harmful code; transmission, distribution or storage of any material protected by copyright, trade-mark, trade secret or other intellectual property right without proper authorization or rights, or material that is infringing, obscene, defamatory, fraudulent, untruthful, disrespectful, discriminatory, or abusive; any unauthorized access, alteration, theft, corruption or destruction of files, data, transmission facilities or equipment; or to interfere with any other person’s use and enjoyment of the site. If you are posting information on publicly accessible areas of the Service, keep in mind that all users in the hub can see it.
Provider does not routinely monitor all material placed on the Service, but may in its discretion delete or modify any material offending this agreement that comes to its attention. Provider is not responsible for and does not endorse anything users post on the Service.
Provider acquires no ownership interest in anything you post on the Service. You grant to Provider a license to use and display for the purposes of the site, and any related uses or promotion, anything you post on publicly accessible areas of this site at no cost to Provider.
Moderators may impose rules regarding who may belong in a hub and activity within a hub. Privacy within a hub may be governed by the policies of the moderator.
If you believe that anything posted on this site offends your copyright or other intellectual property rights, is defamatory, or otherwise infringes your rights, you may email Provider at the email address at the bottom hereof. We will take actions we believe are appropriate in the circumstances.
LOGON ID’S AND PASSWORDS
Your access to the Service requires a logon ID and password. It is your responsibility to protect that information, including without limitation, to use effective passwords that are not easily guessed or discoverable, and keep logon ID’s and passwords confidential. You may not use a logon ID that suggests you are someone you are not. You are responsible for any activity that occurs under your logon ID. You will advise Provider immediately if you discover any compromise of your passwords or suspect unauthorized use of the site using your identity.
If you do not abide by the terms of this agreement, as non-exclusive remedies, Provider may immediately deactivate or delete your user account, delete any or all information we have about you, and bar your further access to the Service.
While the Provider will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide the Service on a continuous basis, it does not promise 24/7 uninterrupted operation.
All promises made by Provider are contained in this agreement. No promises implied by law (whether described as warranties, conditions, representations, or otherwise, and whether relating to merchantability, fitness, non-infringement, or otherwise) apply.
You cannot collect any damages from Provider for any reason (whether under legal theories of contract, tort, negligence, strict liability, operation of law or otherwise) that are not direct damages or exceed the amount paid by you to Provider hereunder for any goods or services that the claim arises from.
Provider relies on these limitations when entering this agreement and setting its fees. They are a fundamental and essential part of our arrangement, and apply even if this agreement has failed in its fundamental or essential purpose or been fundamentally breached.
