The healthLearn Terms and Conditions

In these terms and conditions (Terms and Conditions), CDHB means the Canterbury District Health Board who hosts the Learner Management System (healthLearn) and the Organisation means an entity authorised by CDHB to access and use healthLearn.
The Terms and Conditions govern the use of healthLearn. By accessing healthLearn, the Organisation accepts the Terms and Conditions. A licence to access healthlearn is only granted on the basis that the Terms and Conditions are accepted.

CDHB recognises that personnel external to the CDHB who are health workers (Users) may benefit from access to learning content contained within healthLearn as part of maintaining and extending the range of skills they can offer to the wider health system. These Terms and Conditions set out the terms on which access to healthLearn will be provided.
Approved Health System Region

At CDHB’s discretion, healthLearn will be provided free of charge to approved Organisations and Users within the Approved Health System Region (AHSR) as defined by CDHB. Organisations that operate within the AHSR area that also have health workers outside the AHSR area will generally only be allocated free user accounts for health workers within the AHSR area.
In addition to any other rights under these Terms and Conditions, CDHB reserves the right to charge the Organisation for access to healthLearn if the number of user accounts allocated to the Organisation is exceeded or used by health workers outside the AHSR area without CDHB’s consent.

CDHB agrees to:

  • provide AHSR Users approved by CDHB access to content at a course level in healthLearn; and
  • provide a level of support to Organisations as outlined in the Business Rules for healthLearn set out in Schedule 1 attached.

  • provide end user support for Users to access healthLearn.

The Organisation agrees to keep confidential any information reasonably considered to be of a confidential nature (Confidential Information) and will not, without the CDHB’s prior written consent, divulge any Confidential Information to any third party. This provision will not apply to:

  • any information in the public domain other than in breach of these Terms and Conditions;
  • information obtained from a third party who is free to divulge the same; or
  • disclosure of information which is required by law.

Intellectual Property
All intellectual property rights in healthLearn and its content belong to the CDHB and nothing in these Terms and Conditions has the effect of transferring ownership of any aspect to any third party.

CDHB may, without cause or liability, terminate the Organisation’s or all/any User’s access to healthLearn at any time by giving not less than 30 days prior written notice to the terminated Organisation and/or Users.
On termination of the Organisation’s or all/any User’s access to healthLearn, all provisions of these Terms and Conditions that are intended to continue after termination of access will continue in full force and effect.

CDHB may from time to time to review how it provides healthLearn. Such review may include review of the costs to CDHB of providing access to healthLearn and whether it charges for future access.

The Organisation indemnifies CDHB and will keep CDHB indemnified against any loss, costs, expenses or damages incurred or suffered by CDHB which arise directly out of the Organisation’s breach of these Terms and Conditions.

These Terms and Conditions may be varied by CDHB at any time and any variation will be effective once published on healthLearn.

In the event that any term of these Terms and Conditions is subsequently found to be unenforceable, invalid or illegal for any reason whatsoever, the other terms will be remain in full force and effect as if these Terms and Conditions had been agreed to without such provision.
