OASIS - TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Thank you for your interest in the Order and Shipment Information System ("OASIS") of Pearson Canada Inc. (“Pearson”). OASIS is the order verification/tracking and order placement service Pearson provides its customers to permit follow-up on the status of their orders and to order our products. OASIS is accessible through the ID and Personal Identification Number ("PIN") assigned to your business/institution by Pearson. OASIS contains pricing, ordering, shipping, product and other account information that is confidential between your business/institution and Pearson. It also provides links to third party sites (for which Pearson has no responsibility) of the shipping companies that may be providing services in connection with your business/institution’s orders. OASIS is intended for business/institution customers only.
The access to and use of OASIS and the applications, functionality, products, services, information and other materials available on and through OASIS (the “Content”) is subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein (the “Terms and Conditions”). Your use of OASIS constitutes your acceptance of these Terms and Conditions. Unless otherwise indicated, OASIS, the software used for OASIS and the Content are the property of Pearson and/or its licensors, subsidiaries, affiliates, or assigns. OASIS, the software used for OASIS and the Content are protected by intellectual property legislation, without limitation, pursuant to copyright and trademark laws.

4. Your business/institution acknowledges and agrees that it is responsible for protecting and safeguarding its ID and PIN from any unauthorized use, and you agree to maintain the confidentiality of that information. In addition, should any of your employees with access to OASIS leave your business/institution, you will be responsible for changing your PIN if you believe such a step is warranted. Pearson is not responsible for any liability arising from any unauthorized use of this service (including without limitation from your business'/institution's or from the failure of any employee of the business/institution (“User”) to safeguard an ID or PIN from unauthorized use, or from a former employee's use of a PIN your business/institution has not changed to obtain access to your business'/institution's account information contained on OASIS) and/or for any breach of the above confidentiality obligations. You agree that you are responsible for all activities that occur under your ID or PIN.

Pearson also reserves the right to correct any errors in pricing. In addition, prices for products may be subject to contracts you may have with Pearson that may not be reflected on OASIS or at the then current suggested list price. If you add products when creating a purchase order that have not gone through the OASIS pricing routine then your contract price, if applicable, will apply to such products or if you do not have a contract or contract terms do not apply to such product then the current suggested list price less applicable discount will be applied. Product availability may vary by product. You assume total responsibility for establishing such procedures for data back up and virus checking as you consider necessary.
6. This service has e-mail messaging capabilities. You hereby represent and warrant that your employees are authorized to send e-mail messages and that such messages shall not infringe any proprietary or other rights of third parties or contain any otherwise unlawful information.
7. The PIN and your acceptance of these Terms and Conditions provides you with authorization to enter only your business'/institution's account on OASIS and no other account or Pearson site, and Users may not use the PIN to gain access to any other OASIS account or Pearson site. You agree to notify Pearson immediately if your business/institution becomes aware that your PIN allows access to any account other than your own so that Pearson may take steps to correct the error.
