You should consider these conditions of use alongside the site's Copyright and Privacy policies and they apply to all content on the site.

In registering for membership you agree to abide by the following conditions of use:

  • You will register only one account using your real, full name and identity and provide a genuine email address or your account will be deleted by the Community Manager. You are responsible for all actions using your account and for maintaining the security of your account and password.
  • You will not impersonate any other person, misrepresent yourself, or use, or attempt to use, another's account.
  • You can close your membership account at any time by contacting the Community Manager. You should be aware that your site contributions will still be available after your account has been closed.
  • If you are 17 years of age or younger you will obtain permission to participate from a parent or guardian.
  • You are responsible for any content you post and should be aware that what you post can remain online indefinitely and may be found through search engines or online archives.
  • When you post content, please make sure that it is relevant to the particular topic and not misleading or false.
  • You will not post content that infringes the intellectual property or copyright of others. When contributing third party content please obtain permissions and attribute and acknowledge correctly.
  • This site was built to encourage rigorous debate and critique and you should freely express yourself and your point of view while treating others with courtesy and respect.

  • You will not take any actions that invade privacy, defame, vilify or are otherwise unlawful.

This could take the form of: off-topic or repeated promotion of personal activity, commercial or professional services, or other websites/networks; fundraising activity; or repeated linking or spamming behaviour. The culturemap team welcomes collaboration and integration with the work of other people, organisations and networks - but not without relevance to the community.

In the event of any member acting contrary to the spirit of these conditions, the site management reserves the right to remove or edit content. If this happens, every effort will be made to communicate with that member.


Improving accessibility is a partnership between site producers and the creators of content management systems, browsers, and assistive technologies.

As this site continues to be developed the production team will work with those in the wider accessibility community to improve the experience for all users and to support the future development of accessible technologies.

We ask you to contribute to this process by telling us about any access issues to inform our next development phase. Please email Lisa Andersen, University of Technology, Sydney.
