Links to external websites

The DT Hub contains links to Third Party Websites. Please note that Third Party Websites are not controlled by ESA and ESA is not liable for them. This means that, for example, ESA does not control the accuracy of the content on a Third Party Website nor can it guarantee that the intellectual property rights in the content of the Third Party Website are in order. Your access to Third Party Websites and use of their content is at your own risk. It is your responsibility to read and comply with any terms of use and legal notices that apply to Third Party Websites.

Whilst ESA endeavours to only link to Third Party Websites that are openly licensed for educational use (such as Creative Commons), Third Party Websites may not be openly licensed for educational use. Copying and communicating material from Third Party Websites by educational institutions may attract Copyright Agency fees under Part VB of the Copyright Act (Cth). Copyright Agency fees are payable by the relevant State or Territory government who is the Part VB copyright licensee. To the extent possible, Third Party Websites referred to in this paragraph are indicated by the words "May be subject to Copyright Act statutory licence" or the symbol "^".

ESA provides links to Third Party Websites which, at the time of linking, were of educational value. However, as content on Third Party Websites is not controlled by ESA, such content may change over time. If you discover that the content on a Third Party Website is unexpected or inappropriate for an education audience please contact permissions@esa.edu.au as soon as possible.
