Ushare

Ushare is a platform to share user generated content. Content is submitted to Ushare by teachers, learners and other users of Ushare, not SQA.

Content available on Ushare may comprise comments posted by users and hyperlinks to websites, documents, videos and other relevant materials hosted on third party websites.

Although the website contains links to other websites, SQA does not endorse these sites and is not responsible for their content, or how they protect your personal information. SQA may update, modify, restrict access to or close the website, or any part of it, at any time.

While SQA may moderate posts before they are published, any rating attached reflects the votes cast by users of Ushare, not the opinion of SQA or its staff.

You should always review the terms of use or licence terms applying to third party websites and content before using, downloading or distributing that content.

Reporting inaccurate or inappropriate content

If you think that any content is inaccurate/or out of date, or otherwise inappropriate, contact SQA at marketing@sqa.org.uk

Registration, your account and password

In order to contribute you must register as a user. You must be aged 12 or over to create a Ushare user account.

If you choose, or you are provided with, a user identification code, password or any other piece of information as part of our security procedures, you must treat that information as confidential. You must not disclose it to any third party.

SQA has the right to disable any user identification code or password, whether chosen by you or allocated by SQA, at any time, if in the SQA’s reasonable opinion you have failed to comply with any of the terms of use.

If you know or suspect that anyone other than you knows your user identification code or password, you must notify SQA at marketing@sqa.org.uk.

If SQA determines that your use of Ushare is in breach of the terms of use, SQA may suspend or terminate your account, and take such other action as SQA considers appropriate.
