Content in LEARN

Where the LEARN content and intellectual property for a specific course is owned by a particular DHB then that DHB has the right to republish that content on another site. This provision applies to those DHB employees who have been granted LEARN Administrator and/or editor rights by their DHB.

Modifying and Terminating our Services

We are constantly changing and improving LEARN. We may add or remove functionalities or features and we may suspend or stop LEARN altogether. You can stop using LEARN at any time, although we would be sorry to see you go. Your DHB may also stop providing LEARN to you or add or create new limits to the Services at any time. We believe that you own your data, and preserving your access to such data is important. If LEARN is to be discontinued, where reasonably possible, your DHB will give you reasonable advance notice and a chance to remove information from LEARN.

About these  Terms

Terms or any additional terms that apply to LEARN may be modified at any time to, for example, reflect changes to the law or changes to LEARN. You should look at the terms regularly. Notice of modifications to these terms will be posted on this page. If you do not agree to the modified terms for LEARN, you should discontinue your use. If there is any inconsistency between these terms and the additional terms, the additional terms will prevail to the extent of the inconsistency. As mentioned these terms of use form a contract between you, the user of Ko Awatea Learn,  and the District Health Board (DHB) through which you have access to Ko  Awatea Learn. They do not create any third party beneficiary rights. If you do not comply with these terms and action is not taken immediately, this doesn’t mean that we are giving up any rights that we may have (such as taking action in the future). If it turns out that a particular term is not enforceable, this will not affect any other terms.
