Representations and Warranties. You represent and warrant that: [check each box] all information you have provided about the Submission is, to the best of your knowledge and belief, accurate; if the Submission has more than one author, all co-authors have approved the Submission and have read and agreed to the terms of this License; if the Submission is based upon work that has been sponsored or supported by an organization other than UBC, you have fulfilled any right of review and any other obligations required by the agreement with such sponsor or supporter; the Submission is not subject to any publication delays, except those approved in accordance with the cIRcle Digital Repository Policies; to the best of your knowledge, the use and distribution of the Submission as contemplated in this License will not infringe the copyright or any other intellectual property rights of any other person; if the Submission contains material for which you do not hold copyright and which is not in the public domain,  (i) you are validly exercising an exception to copyright infringement in accordance with the Copyright Act, or you have obtained the permission of the copyright owner(s) to use thematerial as contemplated in this License and retained records of such permission; and (ii) that such third-party owned material is clearly identified and acknowledged within the text or content of the Submission; the Submission does not contain any confidential or proprietary information belonging to others; and the Submission does not, to the best of your knowledge and belief, contain any libelous or other unlawful matter and does not violate anyone’s right to privacy.

In consideration of UBC preserving your Submission in perpetuity in cIRcle, you hereby grant to UBC the non-exclusive, world-wide, perpetual, and royalty-free right to use, reproduce, display, convert, sublicense and distribute, in any format and any medium, your Submission, for the following purposes:  a. uploading and storing your Submission;  b. publishing the Submission electronically Internet via cIRcle, which means making your Submission available to the public by telecommunication so that they may view and download your Submission, subject to the public access terms described in Section 5;            c. converting your Submission to any medium or format for the purposes of security, back-up, preservation and use of the Submission in accordance with this License; and d. authorizing third-parties to perform any of UBC’s rights described in this Section, on UBC’s behalf. If you are submitting a graduate thesis or dissertation, your grant of rights described above is irrevocable.  4. Publication of your Submission. This License does not affect the ownership of copyright—you maintain whatever rights you have in the Submission. In addition, this License does not contain a waiver of your moral rights to your Submission. However, you have granted important rights to UBC and visitors to cIRcle, and, therefore, you agree that if you grant others copyright ownership or a license, it will be consistent with the rights you have granted under this License. For example, if you wish to publish your Submission in a journal, you will inform the publisher of the rights you have granted under this License and not agree to terms that restrict those rights.   5. Terms of Access by the Public. UBC will make a digital copy of your Submission available in cIRcle for the public to view and copy for non-commercial purposes only, without prior permission or charge, provided that your Submission is not altered in any way and is properly acknowledged, including citing the author(s), title and full bibliographic details.

If you wish to assign different license terms to your Submission (for example, a different Creative Commons license), you must inform cIRcle as part of the submission process to cIRcle, and the terms of that license shall apply to your Submission. Public access to your Submission may be withheld for an agreed upon period of time: see the cIRcle Digital Repository Policies for applicable policies and processes.  6. Attribution.

You agree that you will not hold UBC responsible for any use or misuse of your Submission by third-parties who access the Submission through cIRcle. You agree to indemnify and hold UBC harmless against any loss, damage, claim, liability, settlement cost or expense (including legal fees) incurred by UBC and arising out of or in connection with UBC’s use of your Submission pursuant to this License, and, for greater certainty, any of the statements in Section 2 being inaccurate.  I have read, understand and agree to the terms set out in this License. This License may be delivered and/or stored by electronic means, and such electronic copy delivered to and stored by UBC will be deemed to be the official record of this License.
