Acceptable Use Policy
Section 1.    INTRODUCTION
The National Employment Lawyers Association's ("NELA") Acceptable Use Policy ("AUP") is intended to protect the proprietary interests of NELA and the intellectual property rights of the authors of NELA's 2015 Annual Convention E-Manual. It is in this spirit that NELA sets forth the following terms and conditions governing the acceptable use of NELA's 2015 Annual Convention E-Manual (the "E-Manual"). The AUP is a non-exclusive list of the actions prohibited by NELA, and thus NELA reserves the right to modify the AUP at any time to protect its interest and that of the E-Manual authors. By using this site, each user agrees to comply with this AUP policy and other applicable NELA policies, as well as any relevant state and federal laws and regulations. Violation of this AUP may result in the suspension or termination of your access to the E-Manual.
  Please note: Once access to an E-Manual is granted, registrants will not receive a refund of their registration fee.

This AUP governs the use of the E-Manual in both its CD-ROM and Internet-based format.
A password protected website has been created for the exclusive purpose of providing registrants of NELA's 2015 Annual Convention access to the E-Manual via the Internet. All Registrants will have access to the website using a password provided by NELA to access and download the E-Manual from the Internet. If you are not a current member of NELA, the password will expire 30 days after the conclusion of the program. After that time, registrants who are not current members of NELA will no longer be able to use the password to access and download the E-Manual from the Internet. Sharing passwords or allowing others to log onto the NELA website using your password is strictly prohibited.
Unless otherwise specified, the E-Manual is for your personal and non-commercial use. In this regard, violations of this AUP include but are not limited to:
  • Mass distribution of the E-Manual in any form (printed, electronically relayed, posted to public and/or NELA list services or bulletin boards, or magnetically stored);
  • Selling, publishing or otherwise disseminating the E-Manual for commercial use or sale;
  • Allowing content from the E-Manual to be made available to or for the benefit of others by downloading the E-Manual onto any electronic storage media, or distributing or transferring the E-Manual in any form (printed, electronically relayed, posted to public and/or NELA list services or bulletin boards, or magnetically stored);
  • Sharing passwords or allowing others to log onto the NELA website using your password;
  • Logging onto the NELA website using a password that is not your own; and
  • Transmitting or using any content included in the E-Manual that infringes the copyright of NELA and/or the content author.
