OETC    reserves    the    right    to    make    changes    in    any    scheduled    programme(s),    cancel    an    event    should circumstances   require.   We   will   give   registrants   the   maximum   possible   notice   of   such   changes   and   either refund   100%   the   course   &   manual   fees   or   allow   transfer   to   another   date.   OETC   is   not   responsible   for penalties incurred. 10.0 Freedom of Information OETC’s   e-Training   system   retains   a   lot   of   information   about   the   user.   Information   such   as   marks   &   grades, course   attempts,   communication   via   the   chat   and   forums.   This   information   is   only   used   to   provide   e-Training and   web   services   to   the   user   and   is   not   /   will   never   be   sold   or   provided   to   any   third   party   except   what   is accounted for in section 10.0 Freedom of Information. Cookies:   e-Training   maintains   2   cookies   on   your   system.   One   to   track   your   progress   in   your   courses   and   one to track each session so you do not need to input passwords for each page entered. Course   Completion:   OETC   uses   your   course   completion   status   and/or   marks   to   update   the   regulator   in   your jurisdiction if your course is regulator approved. Grades,   Marks   and   Course   Completion:   This   information   will   be   made   available   to Authorized Administrators if   you   are   part   of   a   company   or   municipal   group.   If   you   are   your   internal   administrator   will   inform   you   of   your membership in this group. All   data   and   information   regarding   users   is   available   for   viewing   by   OETC’s   Managing   Director.   Partial responsibilities   are   delegated   from   the   Managing   Director   so   it   is   this   position   that   maintains   full   responsibility to keeping your information safe. 11.0 Cheating and Plagiarism We   at   OETC   take   the   act   of   cheating   &   plagiarism   very   seriously.   Due   to   the   technological   nature   of   our program    delivery,    we    have    the    ability    to    conduct    various    authentication    strategies    in    flagging    potential cheating.   If   our   system   suspects   an   instance   of   cheating,   it   will   flag   the   suspected   accounts   for   closer   scrutiny by   human   eyes.   If   our   investigator   suspects   a   case   of   cheating,   we   can   institute   mandatory   authentication   on all   suspected   user   accounts.   If   you   have   been   found   guilty   of   cheating   by   an   OETC   investigation,   your account   will   be   terminated   and   you   will   be   restricted   from   taking   Director Approved   courses   via   our   e-Training system   for   1yr   throughout   which   time   no   CEU’s   can   be   acquired.   During   this   suspension,   we   reserve   the   right to   terminate   all    IP    addresses   used   throughout   the   life   of   your   account.   This   means   that   if   you’ve   taken courses   at   your   workplace,   you   jeopardise   the   entire   workplace   from   being   suspended.   Your   workplace   may have   the   ability   to   re-instate   it’s   access   by   committing   in   writing,   that   the   cheating   individual(s)   will   be   bared from   accessing   the   OETC   e-Training   System   while   on   workplace   computers.   OETC   reserves   the   right   to require    User   Account    restrictions    at    the    workplace    to    ensure    the    integrity    of    our    system,    to    facilitate reinstatement of a workplace IP address. The   suspected   individual(s)   will   have   the   right   to   explain   and   defend   before   final   action   is   taken,   however, OETC   reserves   the   right   to   institute   periodic   authentication   without   notice   to   the   student.   OETC   d oe s   execute randomized    authentication    procedures    when    accessing    quizzes    and    certificates.    If    you’ve    had    an Authentication   call   /   email   /   e-message,   please   don’t   be   alarmed,   as   you   may   be   experiencing   a   randomized procedure. Finalized   cases   of   cheating   will   be   reported   to   the   Ministry   of   Environment’s   representative,   which   at   the present time is OWWCO - Ontario Water & Wastewater Certification Office.
