WAC Clearinghouse Account Agreement

Welcome to the WAC Clearinghouse. This account agreement was developed strictly because of concerns that, without an account agreement, someone, at some time, will do something that is so thoughtless and/or malicious that we would need to end this service. The agreement follows. If you have an account on this site, you'll see it only once (immediately after you create your account) unless you want to see it again: you can view it through the Account tab on your personal page or through the About this Site page.


The WAC Clearinghouse is a Web site that provies access to a wide range of publications. The Clearinghouse is hosted and maintained by Colorado State University as a public service with the understanding that neither Colorado State University nor any of the other institutions who are partners in the development of the Clearinghouse make any warranties, either expressed or implied, concerning the accuracy, completeness, reliability, or suitability of the information on Clearinghouse pages.
