Terms of use


These Terms of Use are governed by the law applicable to the State of Queensland and the parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of that State.

No delay, neglect or forbearance on the part of the Condamine Alliance in enforcing these Terms of Use will be, or deemed to be, a waiver. Nor will it prejudice any rights of the Condamine Alliance.


By using this Condamine Alliance Regional Catalogue ('the Catalogue') and the Content available on and through it, you are agreeing to be bound by these Terms of Use and the Privacy Policy.

Content that you access through the Catalogue may also be subject to specific terms and conditions imposed by a data provider (Data Provider Terms). These Data Provider Terms may include certain licences to use the Content, such as Creative Commons licenses.

The Data Provider Terms and the Terms of Use form the legally binding agreement between you, the Condamine Alliance and/or the data provider. If there is any inconsistency between these Terms of Use and the Data Provider Terms then the Data Provider Terms will prevail, but only to the extent that it applies to the particular Contents and to the extent necessary to resolve any conflict.

We may change these Terms of Use or a data provider may change their Data Provider Terms at any time without giving you notice, so please check them each time you visit the Catalogue.


In the context of the agreement between you and the Condamine Alliance that these Terms of Use represent:

Condamine Alliance - means the Condamine Catchment Natural Resource Management Corporation Ltd (trading as Condamine Alliance), as the legal entity representing and responsible for the Catalogue.

You/user - means you as a website user, Content/Data user, or Content/Data provider. In most cases you will be a representative of an organisation or group. In some cases you may be a personal user.

Data provider - means an individual or organisation that makes Content available on or via the Catalogue.

The Catalogue - means this website with the URL http://metadatasearch.condaminealliance.com.au/ (or any URL replacing it or containing it within the URL) and associated web services, internet publishing tools, software, tools, etc.

Content - means contributions or content; includes, but is not limited to, documents, information, records, photos, images, contact details. Content may also include or be referred to as Data as the context requires or as set out in a Data Provider Agreement.


In order to submit Content to the Catalogue you are required to register to establish an account/contributor profile with the Catalogue.

When you register, you are registering as a user of the Catalogue who is a representative of an organisation or group. In some cases you may register as a personal user of the Catalogue. Access to registration areas is by your email address and password. Your contribution to/use of the Catalogue is an agreement to abide by our Terms of Use.

We allow you access to the registration areas of the Catalogue on the basis that:

  • your email address and password are personal to you and may not be used by anyone else to access the Catalogue
  • you will not do anything that would assist anyone who is not a registered user to gain access to any registration area of the Catalogue
  • you do not create additional registration accounts for the purpose of abusing the Catalogue or other users; nor do you seek to pass yourself off as another user
  • you comply with these terms of use

In some cases the Condamine Alliance may ask you to provide your real name or other identifying or contact details - such personal information will be managed in accordance with the Condamine Alliance Privacy Policy.

You will ensure that any registration information you give to the Condamine Alliance is accurate, correct and up to date.

The Condamine Alliance will not accept a registration that the Condamine Alliance suspects is being made by or on behalf of someone who has been suspended for violation of these Terms of Use.

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of your password(s). You are therefore responsible for everything done or submitted using your account.

If you become aware of any unauthorised use of your account, you should notify the Condamine Alliance immediately on office@condaminealliance.com.au

If, for any reason, we believe you have not complied with these requirements, we may, at our discretion, lock, restrict and/or cancel your access to the registration areas of the Catalogue immediately and without notice.
