The Service. In collaboration with certified health professionals, the COVID.safe service provides users with information concerning the COVID-19 pandemic, including regulatory guidelines on COVID-safe handling of goods and provision of services, through the Website (the “Service”). COVID.safe also provides qualified organizations with the opportunity to register through the Website indicating that they have complied with such guidelines. Such qualified organizations will obtain a “COVID.safe” badge (a “COVID.safe Badge”), which may be displayed on that organization’s own website and promotional materials.
Fees. There are no fees to use the Service or obtain a COVID.safe Badge.
Content. All information, data, text, software, music, sound, photographs, graphics, video, messages or other materials, whether publicly posted or privately transmitted to the Website by viewers or users whether in forums or otherwise (“User Content”), is the sole responsibility of such viewers or users. This means that the viewer or user, and not COVID.safe, are entirely responsible for all such material uploaded, posted, emailed, transmitted or otherwise made available by using the Service. COVID.safe does not guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of such content. Under no circumstances will COVID.safe be liable in any way for any materials, including, but not limited to, for any errors or omissions in any materials or any defects or errors in any printing or manufacturing, or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the viewing or use of any materials posted, emailed, transmitted or otherwise made available via the Service.
