To ensure compliance with the User Review Guidelines (found at www.courseconductor.com\guidelines), CCI will assess all User reviews prior to the User review being published on the Website.  Assessment of the User review and subsequent approval of the User review onto the Website does not in any way endorse, condone or approve User Generated Content.

The Provider is obligated to comply with these Terms and Conditions. The Provider’s use of the Services must comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations at all times.

Anti-Spam Laws

Canada has very strict laws governing any commercial electronic message (referred to as a “CEM,” which includes emails, or any other form of electronic communication, including anything sent through social media) sent by a Provider.

7.1       Spam Prohibited

The Canadian Anti-Spam Legislation (“CASL”) prohibits franchisees from sending a CEM unless they have the express or implied consent of the recipient.

7.2       Request for Express Consent

You may not send a CEM to request consent to receive a CEM, although your website or other permitted communications with a client or prospect may include an “opt in” provision in which the recipient agrees to receive CEMs from you. The “opt-out model,” where users must take an active step in order to opt-out of receiving a CEM (line clearing a pre-checked box), is not sufficient under CASL.

Such a request for consent must contain the following:

7.2.1    it must set out the purpose of the request;

7.2.2    it must set out information (including a mailing address, telephone number, and email address) that identifies the Provider; and,

7.2.3    it must advise that the recipient may unsubscribe at any time.

7.3       Implied Consent

An implied consent to receive CEMs arises with respect to any User with whom the franchisee has transacted business in the 2 years prior to sending the CEM.

7.4       Exceptions to the Consent Requirement

A Provider may also:

7.4.1    send a single CEM to a person to whom he is referred, provided the full name of the person making the referral is set out;

7.4.2    provide an estimate or quote where it has been requested;

7.4.3    facilitate, complete or confirm a transaction with a User or other recipient; and,

7.4.4    provide warranty information, product recall information or safety information about a product, goods or services the recipient has purchased.

7.5       False or Misleading Representations Prohibited

CASL also prohibits the sending of any false or misleading representation through a CEM.

7.6       Penalties

Maximum penalties for a violation of CASL are $1M in the case of an individual, or $10M in the case of a business organization. Civil liability may also result in a claim of up to $1M.

7.7       Your Obligation to be Informed and to Comply

The information in this paragraph is intended as a summary only. We require that you inform yourself of your obligations under CASL, and strictly abide by them.

Replying to Website Reviews

The Provider has the option of replying to each Consumer review once. If the Provider replies to a review, the Provider warrants in every context that the replies are in compliance with the Terms and Conditions and are not:

8.1       unlawful, deceptive, misleading, fraudulent, threatening, abusive, harassing, libelous, defamatory, tortious, obscene, pornographic or profane;

8.2       of a sexist, political or racially discriminating character;

8.3       in violation of the rights of a third party, including any intellectual property rights and/or privacy rights;

8.4       offensive or in any way breach any applicable local, national or international law or regulation;

8.5       for a disloyal or unlawful purpose and/or content (or promote unlawful purposes); or

8.6       technically harmful (including without limitation computer viruses, logic bombs, Trojan horses, worms, harmful components, corrupted data or other malicious software, harmful data or conduct).

If CCI receives notice or otherwise becomes aware that the replies violate these Terms and Conditions, current legislation and/or the User Review Guidelines, CCI may delete the replies without any notice, and CCI may inform the violated party and/or the authorities of the violation depending on the nature of the violation. CCI is not required to provide an explanation regarding the deletion of any content within the Website, although CCI will strive to inform the Provider about the deletion and the reason thereof.

8.7       Indexing of Review Content

The Provider agrees that the Provider will not use user reviews, other User Generated Content and other data provided by CCI in violation of third party guidelines, including, but not limited to, Google guidelines.

8.8       Display and Use of Reviews and COURSE CONDUCTORTM Score

8.8.1    A Provider may be granted a licence from CCI to display COURSE CONDUCTORTM information on the Provider’s website including reviews, ratings or any other information.  The Provider agrees and accepts that the Provider is required to request permission to use or display COURSE CONDUCTORTM reviews, other User Generated Content and other data provided by CCI. This includes an obligation for the Provider to ensure that the displays of such materials are not misleading, biased or otherwise deceptive.

8.8.2    The Provider will ensure that all information posted on the Website is based on accurate and truthful content.

8.8.3    The parties agree that the Provider may allow Google and other search engines to index the product review content to achieve better organic search engine results and publish Google rich snippets for the content on the Provider website.

User Review Dispute Process

CCI prides itself on the integrity of User Reviews. All reviews written on Course Conductor are written by professionals using a LinkedIn account to register and post a review.  If a Provider believes that a User Review breaches the User Review Guidelines the following User Review Dispute Policy will be initiated:

9.1       Provider sends and email to support@CourseConductor.com highlighting the  Specific User review that breaches the User Review Guidelines.

9.2       CCI quality team assesses the User Review.

9.3       If the CCI assessment of the User Review finds that the User Review does not breach the User Review Guidelines, CCI will reject the breach claim and inform the Provider of the decision.

9.4       If the CCI assessment of the User Review finds the User Review to be suspicious, CCI will contact the User by email and request the User sends evidence of attending the course (by way or receipt of payment) within 10 days.

9.5       If the User replies to the satisfaction of CCI within 10 days, CCI will not delete the review.

9.6       If the User does not reply with satisfactory evidence or does not reply to the CCI email, CCI will remove the review and inform the User and the Provider that that the review has been removed from the Website.

Termination

10.1     Termination by the Provider

The Provider can discontinue its use of the Services and discontinue an Account at any time. Discontinuance of the Account will mean that the Services will no longer be available to the Provider.

10.5     Injunctive Relief

The Provider agrees that should it continue to access the Services following termination of the Account by CCI, then CCI will have the immediate right to secure a court order enjoining any such unauthorized use of the Services.  This covenant will be independent and severable and will be enforceable notwithstanding any other rights or remedies that either party may have.

10.6     Liquidated Damages

The Provider and CCI acknowledge and agree that the purposes of these Terms and Conditions, including ease of interpretation, validity and enforceability, will be simplified and advanced through the inclusion of a provision for a pre-estimate of damages.

Accordingly, the parties to the Agreement have concluded that upon proof of any breach of section 7.3, the appropriate sum payable shall be equal to CDN$1,000 per day of unauthorized useage.
