Section 1: Copyright
Instructure has the copyright to Canvas. Do not try to reproduce it by hacking the code in any way.
Section 2: Registration
To use Canvas, you have to register with real information. No fake names or numbers.
Section 3: Content
Each user is responsible for what they put on Canvas, not Instructure. Be appropriate.
Section 4: Ownership
By agreeing you are saying that you own the content you are posting. Instructure owns the Learning Management System. It is like a dorm room. Instructure owns the room, the closet, the drawers, and the furniture. You own the stuff that you brought to the room- your luggage, your clothes, your books. You can hang up your stuff, and put your clothes in the drawers, but you can’t take the drawers home. You can unpack your bags, but you can’t refinish the furniture. Instructure will maintain the room, but they can’t take your stuff. And again, be appropriate.
Section 4.5: Feedback
If you give feedback and Instructure uses it to improve or creates a new feature based off of your feedback, you aren’t getting any money or rights to it.
Section 5: Behave
Instructure has the right to look over content and take down things that violate the code of conduct.
Section 6: Responsibility
Each user is responsible for their own actions and interactions on Canvas.
Section 7: Third Party Websites
Instructure is not responsible for content on third party websites or apps.
Section 8: Copyright Infringement
If someone makes a claim against your content, you are responsible, not Instructure.
Section 9: Errors
Instructure isn’t perfect and doesn’t guarantee that there aren’t errors.
Section 10: Liability
Instructure is not liable for any damages you can dream up. The most money you can possibly get from them if they were somehow found liable, is the amount you paid to use Canvas in the previous year. If you haven’t paid anything, the cap is $50.
Section 10.3: Operator Error
Instructure isn’t responsible if users don’t use the tools and settings correctly.
Section 10.4: Third Parties
Everyone is responsible for their own actions, including third party websites. So Instructure isn’t responsible for what you see on third party websites.
Section 11: Copyright
Give credit where credit is due - pictures, words, films, video- if you didn’t create it, give props to whomever did. If anyone has used your content without your permission, Instructure gives you information on what to do.
Section 12: Comply
Follow the rules ( be appropriate, observe copyrights) or your account will be closed/deactivated.
Section 13: Communication
Email and messages, notices from Instructure are official. Any communication with third parties and whatever consequences that communication has, is not Instructure’s issue.
Section 13.4: Unforeseen Situations
Instructure isn’t responsible for service delays/ malfunctions during all listed and other unlisted situations.
Section 13.5: Recourse
Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you feel Canvas has not held up their end of the bargain.
