  4. You may modify the Map and/or combine the Map with your data, however this will not:
    1. derogate from the ownership of the Map; or
    2. operate as an assignment of the copyright in the Map; or

  1. You must ensure your employees, agents and sub-contractors are aware of and comply with the COU of the Maps.
  2. The Maps have been acquired from various sources and therefore are recorded and stored at different levels of reliability. DPIPWE does not warrant the accuracy, completeness, currency or suitability of the Maps; therefore you release DPIPWE from all liability whether in contract or tort arising from any defects and errors in the Maps.
  3. The Maps have not been prepared to meet your individual requirements and it is therefore your responsibility to ensure that the Maps meet any such requirement.
  4. DPIPWE is under no obligation to provide training or assistance in the use of the Maps or associated hardware/software to utilise the Maps.
  5. Failure to accept or adhere to any of the COU terminates any granted permission of use of the Maps. Consequently all use of the Maps must cease and the Maps returned to DPIPWE. The Maps and any related material and all copies thereof shall be erased from your storage media. This requirement applies to all copies of the Maps in any form, partial or complete and whether or not modified or merged into other materials.
