Condition of Use
The Canadian Institute of Geomatics grants the Subscriber and authorized users at the Subscriber's institution the right to access the electronic version of Geomatica volumes for which the Subscriber maintains an electronic subscription.
It is a condition of receiving access to the electronic journals that any person who violates either the copyright or the restrictions on distribution, or who condones such acts, may be deprived of future access, including access to back issues, without compensation or refund, while The Canadian Institute of Geomatics retains the further right to any legal remedies that may be available.
Institutional Subscribers: Authorized users are defined as employees, faculty, and students of the Subscriber who access the electronic journals from a computer terminal within the range of the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses provided by the Subscriber at time of purchase. Access to the electronic journal by persons other than those listed above is restricted to the use of a computer terminal located in a Subscriber library.
Individual Subscribers: Authorized users may access the online purchased volume through a user name and password provided by the Canadian Institute of Geomatics.
An authorized site is a contiguous campus community or buildings that are reporting to the same administrative body. Affiliated locations outside of the defined site are considered to be separate sites. Within a multi-company / Government / Educational Institution complex or building, each company/Government/Educational Institution is considered to be a separate site.
The Subscriber and authorized users may view, print, and download single copies of articles or other content for personal use.
The Subscriber and authorized users may not make copies for general distribution, for advertising or other promotional purposes, for creating new collective works, or for any resale purpose such as document delivery. For such copying, separate agreements must be made with the copyright owner. The Subscriber will notify all authorized users of permitted and prohibited use, and the Subscriber will take any corrective action necessary against authorized users who contravene these conditions.
