Terms & Conditions

Parties

These Terms and Conditions are between Historic Environment Scotland, hereafter “HES” and you, hereafter “the User” and relate to your use of the website “Canmore”.

Access to Canmore and the User’s Agreement

Access to Canmore is provided solely under these Terms and Conditions and the User Licence displayed below. Your use of Canmore automatically indicates your agreement to these Terms & Conditions and the User Licence and these are contractually binding on you if you continue to use Canmore. If you do not wish to agree to these terms, do not use the website.

Right to Use Canmore

The Canmore website is open for free use. That free use is limited to personal, individual and educational use. The permissions are detailed in the User Licence below.

The materials on the website come from the HES Collections. As in any archive collection, some of the material is copyright and some is out of copyright.  Some of the copyright material is not owned by HES or the Crown and we acknowledge and respect those Intellectual Property rights. That means the majority of material on Canmore  can be provided wholly to you with a range of additional services; and a small proportion may only be viewed and no other use can be made. Canmore options will be shown blocked out for such material.  If you do need to make use of such restricted material, please click BUY and give full details. Contributed myCanmore material will provide a contact form to contact the contributor directly.

Users are therefore given a limited permission to use these Collections items.

There are also copyrights relating to the database itself and to the design, structure and code employed in the website.

 

User Accounts for MyCanmore & Mapping Use of the Website

Consult the MyCanmore Contributor Licence below for the full terms of contribution.

Ordnance Survey requires HES to track the legal identity of Users who use interactive mapping in Canmore. HES is required under legal contract to reveal the details of any User who breaches the copyright of Ordnance Survey.

Should use be found to be illegal, subject to complaint, a breach of ethics or cause any other infringement, HES reserves the right to suspend or ban any User at any time.

User Risk

Users accept that use of the website is at the User’s own risk and that while HES will make every effort to ensure an acceptable environment and that materials are legally uploaded, it is not possible to provide guarantees about comments or materials loaded onto the site. The website will take prompt action to remove such material on notification.

Limits to Liability

HES provides no guarantees as to the performance of the website or the availability of individual content or features. Any materials or text displayed or downloaded must be assessed and evaluated solely by the User as it does not constitute advice nor does its inclusion on the site confer any guarantee of accuracy. The site is provided as is without any guarantee, or warranty. Therefore, HES disclaims the maximum liability as is possible within the law.
