Terms & Conditions: Data Protection, Disclaimer and Copyright
Ushare enables teachers, lecturers, learners and training providers to share learning and teaching content.
Ushare provides a platform for users to share user generated content. Content is submitted to Ushare by teachers, learners and other users of Ushare, not SQA.
Content available on Ushare (“content”) may comprise comments posted by users and hyperlinks to websites, documents, videos and other relevant materials hosted on third party websites.
Whilst SQA may moderate posts before they are published on Ushare, publication on Ushare does not mean that SQA has approved or endorsed the content, or checked that it is accurate, relevant, complete or up to date, or whether your access to or use of the content may infringe the rights of any third party. Any rating attached to any content reflects the votes cast by users of Ushare, not the opinion of SQA or its staff.
Content linked to from Ushare is located on websites owned or operated by third parties, over which SQA has no control. Accordingly, you understand that access to and any reliance on content posted on Ushare will be entirely at your own risk. To the extent permitted by law, SQA expressly excludes its liability for any loss or damage caused by the inaccuracy or incompleteness of any content, or that may arise from your use of any content on or linked to from Ushare.
Reporting inaccurate or inappropriate content
If you think that any content contained in any post, or linked to from Ushare is inaccurate, or out of date, or otherwise inappropriate, you should contact the SQA at firstname.lastname@example.org
