Additional terms of use for the Cane Toad Challenge project:

Date: 21st of March 2020

  1. Cane toads are toxic across all life stages. In adult cane toads the toxin is concentrated in glands either side of the head, which are known as parotoid glands. Pressure on these glands can initiate the secretion of toxin as a defensive response. Ingestion of secreted toxin and/or any tissue from cane toad eggs, tadpoles, juveniles or adults, can lead to rapid heartbeat, excessive salivation and convulsions, and can be lethal.  You agree that the University of Queensland is not liable for any accident or illness or injury or death caused to you or your pet or any third parties by cane toads when using the Service.
  1. You agree to defend, hold harmless and indemnify the University of Queensland against any claims (third party or otherwise) in any way related to the use of the Service, including any costs, expenses, damages, loss, lawsuits, penalties and charges and including judgements and attorney fees for damages to property, injury or loss of life resulting or arising from the use of the application, software and provided tools. The University of Queensland is not liable for your use of the Service or for any content you upload, infringements, damage or accidents during your use of the Service.
  1. You consent to your personal information being collected by SPOTTERON and transferred out of the EU (or the country you are located) to Australia. You agree to the collection, processing and use of your personal information, including the transfer of information within Australia, for processing, storage and use by the University of Queensland.

These terms of use are in effect in addition to the terms of use of the SPOTTERON Citizen Science platform for using the specified app. Please read them carefully.
