  • Reproduction of Online Offgrid materials online (internet or intranet) for any purpose requires permission.
  • The use of materials and content produced by Online Offgrid, where the main purpose is publishing and/or profit is not allowed.
  • The reproduction of Online Offgrid materials for sale or as part of any provision where the materials are sold is not allowed.
  • You are not permitted to download or otherwise obtain any of the Website infrastructure (e.g. website directories or functional code) by the use of specialised software or any other method. You are not permitted to distribute or circulate any materials as electronic copies (for example via CD, DVD, flash-drives, email, file-sharing sites, e-learning programs).
  • The free provision of materials on this website does not imply that the works can be exploited for profit without seeking permission from respective owners of original concepts, theories and other intellectual property. This material may not be sold, or published in any form without permission from the content owner(s).

Whilst Online Offgrid endorse Online Offgrid’s materials and content that appear on our website we have no control and accept no responsibility or liability for the way that others use them or for any actions or liabilities resulting thereof.

 

Use of 3rd-party protected Intellectual Property:

Caution and respect are recommended if you propose to use or exploit any 3rd-party intellectual property ('IP' - protected materials, trademarks, etc., belonging to other people) which appears on this Website. The fact that other non-trademarked models and names are mentioned, referenced and/or linked to on this website does not necessarily mean that they can be used freely for any sort of commercial purpose. Typically, a brief reference to 3rd party owned/protected concepts is regarded as fair use in teaching and training, but if you are deemed to be actually training or exploiting the concept without a licence or permission from the Intellectual Property owner then you could create a liability for yourself/your organisation. Different levels of protection apply to different concepts, and usage laws vary in different countries and we cannot advise nor accept liability in this regard. Effort has been made on this Website to point out the trademarked and strongly protected concepts, however, depending on your usage, any 3rd party concept can give rise to copyright liabilities, especially if your usage seeks to profit directly from the publishing or exploitation of the concept. If in doubt seek qualified advice and/or contact the owner of the material or trademark concerned to see if your proposed usage requires particular permission or licensing.

 

Publishing and reproduction requests

The content and materials on the Online Offgrid website are not to be sold or published in any form (other than the use of short extracts for review purposes) including reproduction of any Online Offgrid materials on other websites or intra/extranets, blogs, videos, images, in books for sale, magazines and newspapers, newsletters and e-newsletters, emails, any electronic communication, advertising or other 'distributed' media.

For newsletters, websites, magazines, books, etc., under certain circumstances publishing of extracts (200-500 words) can be agreed, according to submission and approval of the criteria listed below. In such cases the extract must be shown with a strongly visible link to the full source material URL on the Online Offgrid Website, and carry a suitable attribution statement, and a link to the Online Offgrid Website itself.

Publication approval also requires the requesting author/publisher to indemnify (protect) Online Offgrid against any liabilities arising from the author/publisher's use of the material.

If in doubt, please ask. Also, if necessary seek local qualified legal advice about your usage.

Please note:

  • If your proposed publication or reproduction concerns content, images or diagrams based on a 3rd party concept, then it is your responsibility to decide whether your particular usage requires permission or licence from the concept owner and Online Offgrid accept no liabilities arising from any usage in this regard.
  • It is not within Online Offgrid rights to grant permission for the commercial publishing/exploitation of 3rd party concepts. Normally publishers expect authors to indemnify (protect) the publisher from liabilities arising from the use of the published work. Online Offgrid can agree to no such indemnification on your behalf.
