The Collectish service and network (collectively, "Collectish") is operated by the Museums Board of Victoria trading as Museum Victoria (collectively, "us" "we" or "our").
Collectish is a service enabling collectors to share information about their personal collections and themselves with others.
Collectish is provided "as is". We assume no responsibility for the timeliness, deletion, mis-delivery or failure to store any user communications or personalization settings.
We reserve the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, Collectish (or any part thereof) with or without notice. You agree that we shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of Collectish.
Recognizing the global nature of the internet, you agree to comply with all local rules regarding online conduct and acceptable content. Specifically, you agree to comply with all applicable laws regarding the transmission of technical data exported from the Australia or the country in which you reside.
Collectish may provide, or third parties may provide, links to other World Wide Web sites or resources. Because we have no control over such sites and resources, you acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for the availability of such external sites or resources, and we do not endorse and are not responsible or liable for any content, advertising, products or other materials on or available from such sites or resources. You further acknowledge and agree that we shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any such content, goods or services available on or through any such site or resource.
By submitting, uploading to, creating, posting, storing or otherwise publishing or making available, content, messages, materials, data, information, text, music, sound, images, photos, graphics, code, ideas, suggestions, documents, proposals or other items ("Contributions") to Collectish through its suggestion or feedback web pages, you acknowledge and agree that: (a) your Contributions do not contain confidential or proprietary information; (b) we are not under any obligation of confidentiality, express or implied, with respect to the Contributions; (c) we shall be entitled to use or disclose (or choose not to use or disclose) such Contributions for any purpose, in any way, in any media worldwide; (d) Collectish may have something similar to the Contributions already under consideration or in development; and (e) you are not entitled to any compensation or reimbursement of any kind from us under any circumstances.
You will receive a password and account designation upon completing the Collectish registration process.
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the password and account and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account.
You agree to (a) immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session.
We cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with these guidelines.
Collectish may include discussion forums, wikis or other interactive areas or services, including without limitation the authors unbound section of Collectish ("Interactive Areas"), in which you or other users submit, upload to, create, post, store or otherwise publish or make available Contributions. You are solely responsible for your use of such Interactive Areas and use them at your own risk. By using any Interactive Areas, you agree not to post, upload to, transmit, distribute, store, create or otherwise publish or make available through Collectish any of the following:
The content of Collectish is not intended as a substitute for professional advice. No claim is made as to the accuracy or authenticity of the content of Collectish.
In no event will we or our directors, employees, officers or agents be liable to you or any third party for any indirect, consequential, exemplary, incidental, special or punitive damages, including for any lost profits or lost data arising from your use of Collectish, any platform applications or any of the Collectish content or other materials on, accessed through or downloaded from Collectish, even if we are aware or have been advised of the possibility of such damages, notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, our liability to you for any cause whatsoever, and regardless of the form of the action, will at all times be limited to the amount paid, if any, by you to us for the use of Collectish during the term of membership. You agree that if no fees have been paid by you for the use of Collectish, you shall be limited to injunctive relief only, unless otherwise permitted by law, and you shall not be entitled to damages of any kind from us, regardless of the cause of action.
Some of the material on Collectish may include mature or adult content intended for people who are at least 18 years old. By default, material that has been explicitly flagged as such is hidden from view; users must opt in to view such material; users under the age of 18 must not seek to access this material.
Collectish relies on users to flag mature or adult content where appropriate. While we make diligent efforts to restrict access to adult content with this system, we may not be able to exclude all of it. In addition, people may disagree over what content should be excluded from filtering. That's why you may see some content you think is adult content even if you have not opted to do so. If that happens, please inform us using the the Report Abuse link on the page in question.
Unless otherwise indicated, Collectish and all content and other materials provided by Collectish, including, without limitation, the Collectish logo, and all designs, text, graphics, pictures, information, data, software, sound files, other files and the selection and arrangement thereof (collectively, the "Site Materials") are our proprietary property and are protected by Australian and international copyright laws.
We at our sole discretion may limit access to Collectish and/or terminate the account of any user who infringes any intellectual property rights of others.
We respect the intellectual property of others. If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please provide us with the written information specified below. Please note that this procedure is exclusively for notifying us that your copyrighted material has been infringed.
To provide us with notice of claims of copyright infringement on Collectish please contact us.
No Right of Survivorship and Non-Transferability. You agree that your Collectish account is non-transferable and any rights to your Collectish ID or contents within your account terminate upon your death. Upon receipt of a copy of a death certificate, your account may be terminated and all contents therein permanently deleted.
