By using this site you agree to the following Terms and Conditions. Please take a moment to look them over because by using our site you automatically agree to them. Naturally, if you don’t agree, please do not use the site. We reserve the right to make any modifications that we deem necessary at any time. Please continue to check these terms to see what those changes may be! Your continued use of the Wai`anae Economic Development Council website means that you accept those changes.
The Wai`anae Economic Development Council
The Wai`anae Economic Development Council (WEDC) assumes no responsibility to return unsolicited materials submitted for publication. Unsolicited material will be subject to WEDC’s unrestricted right to edit and to comment editorially. Submission of material to WEDC for publication implies the author’s warranty that said material in no way is an infringement on the rights of others. All submitted material will be treated as unconditionally assigned for publication and copyright purposes. Any opinion(s) expressed in any bylined article(s) or paid advertisement(s) published on WEDC’s website belongs solely to the writer/advertiser and not WEDC.
We uphold free speech and first amendment rights. Acceptance of an advertisement into WEDC does in no way mean that the staff or publisher endorses the service or product of said advertisement. No part of this website may be reproduced, stored in a retrieval system or transmitted in any form without prior written approval from the publisher.
Restrictions on Use of Our Online Materials
All Online Materials on the Wai`anae Economic Development Council website, including, without limitation, text, software, names, logos, trademarks, service marks, trade names, images, photos, illustrations, audio clips, video clips, and music are copyrighted intellectual property.

Any attempts to modify any Online Material, or to defeat or circumvent our security features are prohibited.
Everything you download, any software, plus all files, all images incorporated in or generated by the software, and all data with it, is considered licensed to you by Wai`anae Economic Development Council or third-
Submitting Your Online Material to Us
That means that we don’t have to treat any such submission as confidential. If we use them, or anything like them, we don’t have to pay you or anyone else for them. We will have the exclusive ownership of all present and future rights to submissions of any kind. We can use them for any purpose we deem appropriate to our Wai`anae Economic Development Council mission, without compensating you or anyone else for them.
You acknowledge that you are responsible for any submission you make. This means that you (and not we) have full responsibility for the message, including its legality, reliability, appropriateness, originality, and copyright.
Limitation of Liability
Wai`anae Economic Development Council will not be liable for any damages or injury that accompany or result from your use of any of its sites. These include (but are not limited to) damages or injury caused by any:
Use of (or inability to use) the site
Use of (or inability to use) any site to which you hyperlink from our site
Failure of our site to perform in the manner you expected or desired
Error on our site
Omission on our site
Interruption of availability of our site
Defect on our site
Delay in operation or transmission of our site
Computer virus or line failure
Please note that we are not liable for any damages, including:
Damages intended to compensate someone directly for a loss or injury
Damages reasonably expected to result from a loss or injury (known in legal terms as “Consequential Damages.”)
Other miscellaneous damages and expenses resulting directly from a loss or injury (known in legal terms as “Incidental Damages.”)
We are not liable even if we have been negligent or if our authorized representatives have been advised of the possibility of such damages or both.
Certain state laws may not allow us to limit or exclude liability for these “incidental” or “consequential” damages. If you live in one of those states, the above limitation obviously would not apply which would mean that you might have the right to recover these types of damages.
However, in any event, our liability to you for all losses, damages, injuries, and claims of any and every kind (whether the damages are claimed under the terms of a contract, or claimed to be caused by negligence or other wrongful conduct, or they’re claimed under any other legal theory) will not be greater than the amount you paid if anything to access our site.

Such a link should not be seen as an endorsement, approval or agreement with any information or resources offered at sites you can access through our site.

Aggregated Information (information that does not personally identify you) may be used in many ways.

Please note we may not provide you with notice prior to disclosure in such cases.

You should check the applicable privacy policies of those third parties when providing information on a feature or page operated by a third party.
You should also be aware that if you voluntarily disclose Personally Identifiable Information on message boards or in chat areas, that information can be viewed publicly and can be collected and used by third parties without our knowledge and may result in unsolicited messages from individuals or third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of Wai`anae Economic Development Council and this policy.
