  1. while reasonable efforts have been made in preparing these datasets for use by you, the City does not give any promises as to the completeness, currency or accuracy of the datasets or that access will be continuous;
  2. the City does not make any promise that the datasets are free and clear of any possible third party copyright, moral rights, other proprietary right or other claim;

Please note that the datasets have been modified from their original source, as data initially generated by the City for its internal uses and that all data visualizations on maps are approximate and include only records that can be mapped.

Exclusion of Liability

You agree that you will not and cannot sue the City for anything which the City does or does not do (even if intentional or negligent) in connection with the datasets and your use or inability to use them.

If, as a result of your breach of these Terms of Use, the City gets sued or is required to pay someone money, you agree to protect the City and reimburse the City for everything which you cause the City to suffer. This means that you agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless the City and all of its officers, employees, representatives and agents from any and all liabilities incurred in connection with any claim arising from any breach by you of these Terms of Use, including reasonable legal fees and costs. You agree to cooperate fully in the defence of any such claim.

No Waiver

You agree that, if the City does not exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy contained in these Terms of Use (or that the City has the benefit of under any applicable law), this will not be taken to be a formal waiver of the City's rights and that those rights or remedies will still be available to the City. Any waiver of any provision of these Terms of Use will be effective only if the City expressly states in a signed writing that it is waiving a specified provision.
